We came across this little wine bar while wandering the cobbled streets looking for the Pantheon. It's just off Piazza Montecitorio, near the Piazza Colonna which is on Via del Corso. It apparently has a long history of providing good wines from an excellent wine cellar. The restaurant is deep and narrow and has a long bar. The walls are lined with shelves filled with wine bottles. Lots of wood and high arched ceilings. The atmosphere is very nice. We stopped in there for lunch and had a lovely Roman meal. It was a leisurely lunch as is traditional in Italian restaurants. We had Italian beer, and I had a plate of pasta carbonara, my favourite. My partner managed to find a plate of chicken in curry sauce! There wasn’t enough really for his appetite but traditionally you have an antipasti which is h’or doerves and then a "primo" which can be a plate of pasta or a salad which he hadn't done. Then your main meal which is the meat/veg/rice. I couldn’t get through it all if I had to do that. Just the pasta was plenty for me. It was all quite tasty and within what I would call reasonable prices (44 euro including the drinks and the 2 euro pp service charge).
