  • La classic carbonara, but also the tonnarelli in fresh pesto sauce and shrimps
  • The light mixed deep-fried dish
  • The homemade desserts, especially the Italian cheesecake
  • The linguini in arrabbiata sauce and black truffles prepared according to an ancient recipe revealed by owner
What to know

  • Among the many wines, there are also a few gems from the Lazio region
