Food and drink
Wine is the main act: the by-the-bottle list numbers more than 1500 different wines and vintages, and there are always 10 or more reds, whites and bubblies available by the glass. Though it takes a supporting role, the food on offer is well prepared and also varied, ranging from Roman classics like involtini al sugo (bacon and beef rolls in tomato sauce) to pan-Italian and international dishes (onion soup, various quiches, Greek salad), to cheese and salami platters.
Inside, it’s more pine-clad birreria than elegant wine bar – but the atmosphere is cultured and convivial. Outside, it's sheer Roman romance – if you’re lucky enough to nab one of the tables.
Service is serious, though not all the waiters are reliable for wine recommendations.
Piazza di Pasquino is just a few paces from the southern end of Piazza Navona.
A light lunch or dinner here will cost from 12 euros to around 25 euros depending on how much you order. The mark-up on wine here is very reasonable: there are plenty of excellent bottles in the 14-20 euros range.
