Food and drink
The Camerucci family originally hails from Le Marche – the Tuscany of Italy’s eastern, Adriatic side – and the menu reflects that region’s strong culinary traditions, offering light, well-balanced dishes like red onion flan in gorgonzola sauce, tagliolini with anchovies, sultanas and pecorino cheese, and secondi based on fish or game. The wine list is not huge, but it offers a good opportunity to explore marchigiano wine (from Le Marche), including some knockout Verdicchios (a zesty, summery white).
It all feels halfway between a traditional Roman trattoria and something more contemporary: there are the wooden tables and chairs, crammed in tight, and the sunflower-hued walls; but there are also designer lamps and a trendy open-to-view kitchen at the back.
One-to-one, patient and courteous: in fact, some of the best trattoria service in Rome.
It’s in a little lane between Santa Maria Maggiore and Piazza Vittorio, less than 10 minutes’ walk from Termini station.
If you stretch to three courses, allow for 40-45 euros a head including wine.
