Spirito di Vino

Spirito di Vino Review

At this restaurant on the less-traveled side of Viale Trastevere, diners can enjoy an evening of historic and culinary interest. The restaurant itself was rebuilt on the site of a 12th-century Jewish synagogue, and as such, the spot is rich with history—several ancient sculptures, now in the Vatican and Capitoline museums, were unearthed in the basement. The food ranges from inventive (mini-meatballs seasoned with coriander) to traditional (spaghetti with pecorino cheese and pepper), to historical (braised pork shoulder with apples and leeks, following an ancient Roman recipe). The proud owner is happy to explain every dish on the menu, and he even offers a postdinner tour of the wine cellar—and that basement.
