Agata e Romeo

:: Rome : Esquilino
Perhaps Agata e Romeo is resting on its Michelin-starred laurels.  The service was excellent and the food more than acceptable, but for the price we paid I expected more.  The table was constantly covered in special treats, like five kinds of homemade breads, or inventive miniature pastries.  But the actual courses we ordered -- antipasti, primi, and secondi -- were lackluster.  Che peccato!

:: Rome : Navona-Pantheon
Sangallo is now one of my very favorite restaurants in Rome, and here's why.  Your evening here includes a delightful seven-course tasting menu, four seemingly bottomless glasses of accompanying wines, exceptional service, elegant yet comfortable ambiance, and that attention to detail and quality that you have come to expect from the family-run restaurant in Italy.  All for €75.  (And if you don't want the wine, you can have all of the above for only €55.)  Just order the menu degustazione, then sit back and let Sangallo make your evening fantastic.
