Agata e Romeo
Agata e Romeo Review
For the perfect marriage of fine dining, creative cuisine, and rustic Roman tradition, the husband-and-wife team of Agata Parisella and Romeo Caraccio is the top. Chef Agata was perhaps the first in the capital to put a gourmet spin on Roman ingredients and preparations, elevating dishes like cacio e pepe (cheese and pepper) with the addition of an even richer Sicilian aged cheese and saffron to the pecorino; "baccalà 5 ways" showcases salt cod of the highest quality; and many dishes are the best versions of classics you can get. Prices are steep, but for those who appreciate extremely high-quality ingredients, an incredible wine cellar, and warm service, dining here is a real treat.
