Fodor's Review

Some of the most innovative interpretations of Roman fine dining can be found in this starkly chic restaurant on a back street between upscale Via Giulia and the popular Campo de' Fiori. Chef Anthony Genovese was born in France to Calabrese parents, and spent time cooking in Japan and Thailand, so it's no surprise that the food he turns out makes use of nontraditional spices, ingredients, and preparations–-all of which have gained him a loyal following and prized Michelin stars. The prices are exorbitant, but the food is exemplary. Dishes include items like pasta bundles filled with onion, tapioca, and redcurrant in a saffron broth, or duck with black salsify, caramelized pear, and chocolate sauce. You can choose one of the elaborate tasting menus, or order à la carte.
