Roscioli

One address which is an absolute must if you are visiting Rome is Roscioli (Via dei Giubbonari, 21, Rome, tel. 066 864045 ). Initially, it was a bakery, later a gourmet shop and a restaurant was added. The products are of unbelievable quality but it’s not only them that make…

Fassi gelateria

Fassi, or Palazzo del Freddo is one of the oldest gelaterias in Italy (last year it turned 130 ). The only shop in Rome is still owned by the founder’s family. It seems that time has stopped at Palazzo del Freddo-the simple, cantine like decor makes you travel to the middle of…

Carciofi alla giudia

Jewish style artichokes from Piperno restaurant in the Roman Ghetto. You eat everything – the artichoke heart, crispy leaves… One of my favourite Roman specialities. The Romanesco artichokes season is from February to April and you can find them now pretty everywhere in the Ghetto area.

Until this moment I have been to only one restaurant (two if you count gelateria) which was touristy. Ristorante Matricianella And it was Ristorante Matricianella (…

Harry’s Bar Venezia

Harry’s Bar is a legendary Venetian institution where beef carpaccio and Bellini cocktail were invented. Even though it was my first time at Harry’s Bar, it seemed that everything, or, at least the menu, was déjà vu. It is here, steps away from San Marco square, where the famous New…

Report from Milan, Spring 09 edition

As I’ve posted last year, Milan is not only about shopping for designer bags and shoes, but also about delicious Italian food and certain Milanese style that you can’t find anywhere else. I don’t speak about the new rich sweeping away “Dolce” and “Giorgio” shops, but about the old Italy…

Ristorante Cracco

Ever since I started living my passion for gastronomy, I’ve fantasised to try the haute cuisine of the countries I travel. I will repeat myself again- I love French cuisine haut cuisine but I also find disappointing that most of the top restaurants in the world reflect the French cooking…

I always have a great time in Italy. The nice combination of mild weather, beautiful architecture and hearty food makes me want to come back there even before going back home. My recommendations from my 5 day trip to Milan. I love in Milan… The Bulgari Hotel Via Privata Fratelli…

The Roman feast continues

Thanks, Jupiter, to the Roman friends! Like this, we didn’t have to go to a place full of tourists and mediocre food. Instead, we had a lovely lunch in Rome’s Jewish quarter. A very lively trattoria called Giggetto al Portico D’Ottavia. Now, I must confess, I love trattoria Italian food…
