Fratelli Paradiso

Fratelli Paradiso is Meazza in Totti’s skin. A menu of simple Italian classics scores plenty of goals with the people that crowd the penalty areas and benches of this stylishly modern trattoria. Formality is thrown out the window, no heavy linens here with naked chestnut tabletops, artfully designed wallpaper adorns one wall, opposite a blackboard lists the wine and dishes such as a nonchalant grilled beef salad of rocket, a balsamic reduction dressing and shaved parmesan and a lasagne that our inner Garfields would approve. A couple of years at your Tuscan retreat will help you order without the waiter’s translation. Dolce of course but check out the in house bakery next door for sweets to go with a good cup of the black stuff. There is a popularity premium but good looks and produce require maintenance. Francesco can attest to that.
