Wood-fired pizza with soul in a converted warehouse in Bushwick
A long-standing restaurant serving hearty, traditional Roman fare in a wood-paneled dining room.
A small place, with a very friendly and happy staff eager to please. Two brothers, Enrique and Danieli, run the front of the house and are fun and attentive; and their Mother, the chef, has true talent. They serve amazing, homemade pasta dishes that make you want to take small bites, and eat slowly since the food is so amazing and you don’t want it to end!
Walking into Imago, the Hassler Roma’s 6th floor panoramic restaurant, one is over taken by the view which projects the impact of a beautiful painting. Soft music, elegant marble floors with an antique-wooden inlay, dimmed lights reflecting off the mirrored-tables create a romatic mood as well as the sense of being in another time and space. The view is complemented by texture, aroma and taste of Chef Francesco Apredas’ creative Italian cuisine.
This restaurant is located in the Trastevere section, and off the main road, but worth the effort to find this gem. The atmosphere was incredible, the wait staff very attentive and the food was delicious. The Roman sampler box is a great way to taste tiny bites of local specialities. You can have your last drink next to the fireplace in comfortable sofas facing a great collection of Hollywood celebrities that have visited.
If you are looking for a nice place that feels like Rome and attracts lots of locals, this is a good choice. Modern presentation of great food, excellent ambience and good service. Try the “poor man’s fish” tasting menu, you will be delighted in sampling dishes you normally would have never ordered.
Everything from the bread to the dessert was perfect. The staff was attentive and provided recommentations plus excellent service. Extremely fresh fish and lovely ambiance and the quality of the food was superior. Reservations should be made a day in advance.
The restaurant-pizzeria La Libera is a typical restaurant of old Milano. Here you will find tasty traditional Italian specialties, including seasonal meat and fish. Come and enjoy the comfortable environment that characterizes the Free. Plus we are open after midnight! Open all year round, even in August.
Bastianello was and is still considered by some to be one of the best pastry shops in Milano. For decades it has been known as a place for a quick cappuccino and brioche. This attractive and elegant pasticceria always full of people but stop in and I know you won’t be disappointed.
The history of the Panarello brand started in 1885 when Francesco Panarello, at the age of 17, takes over a bakery and unwittingly starts a “sweet” story lasting more than a century. The first Panarello confectioners opened in Milan in 1930. This shop is a “must” if you are visiting Milano whether your choice is almond biscotti, cannoli cream, sponge cake or an apricot tart- you will be delighted.
