Antico Ristorante Sibilla

Antico Ristorante Sibilla Review

This famed restaurant should be included among the most beautiful sights of Tivoli. Built in 1730 beside the circular Roman Temple of Vesta and the Sanctuary of the Sybil, the terrace garden has a spectacular view over the deep gorge of the Aniene River, with the thundering waters of the waterfall in the background. Marble plaques on the walls list the royals who have come here to dine over 2½ centuries. The food, wine, and service standards are all high, and in recent years there's been more and more emphasis placed on seasonal produce and local dishes. Be sure to sample the speciality of the house—a lavish choice of antipasti served on individual triple-tiered trays that resemble old-fashioned cake stands. Dishes for the first course may include pappardelle made with spelt and dressed with garlic, olive oil and tiny "datterini" tomatoes. For the second course, local lamb; sucking pig; and a salad with ricotta, herbs, honey, and prunes may all make an appearance. The desserts are equally strong contenders for your attention.
