La Veranda dell'Hotel Columbus
La Veranda dell'Hotel Columbus Review
Deciding where to sit at La Veranda is not easy, since both the shady courtyard, torch-lit at night, and the frescoed dining room are among Rome's most spectacular settings. While La Veranda has classic Roman cuisine on tap, the kitchen imparts nice, refreshing twists on the familiar with an innovative use of flavor combinations. The menu changes seasonally, but can include such offerings as an eggplant caponata with burrata cheese and bottarga (salted fish roe) from Sardinia, Piedmontese oxtail soup, or a risotto with Barolo wine, blue cheese, and quail carpacco with mustard seeds. Call ahead, especially on Saturday, because the hotel often hosts weddings, which close the restaurant, and you don't want to miss passing a few hours of your Roman Holiday in these environs.
