Osteria del Gallo, Rome
It’s the kind of place that makes you wanna do a mini fist pump under the table as you sit down at Osteria del Gallo, the place that you’ve just stumbled across tucked away in an alley off the beaten tourist routes.
And doesn’t it feel local, not another joint in site, it almost feels like you’ve invaded the courtyard of the apartment blocks above and set up some outdoor settings for a meal.
Steak with balsamic – there’s a soft sweetness to offset the intense tang.
Seafood pasta – wishing there were more of the ribbons to soak up the rich seafood based stock sauce
Simple food, done nicely.
But a closer look some of the tables… a Rick Steves guide here, a Lonely Planet there and some pretty serious cameras. Can you take back a mini fist pump?
Still a decent place.
3.5 / 5 yums!
