Il Chianti, Rome
In a city that is around 2764 years old, there’s not much ancient about this tourist friendly restaurant just up the road from Trevi Fountain.
Modern, minimalist but sharp, but the menu is packed with at least one option from most pastas you can think of.
Tasting plate of cheese and meats
Tagliolini with porcini – if it looks sticky, that because it is, much like undercooked hokkien noodles.
Pappardelle with hare ragu – the meat sauce is fine, pasta el dente plus plus.
Tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, basil.
I like it more as a wine bar.
2.5 / 5 yums!
Where? Via delle Lavatore, Rome, Italy
What? Mains around €15-20
