This delightful restaurant hosted my final meal in the eternal city. That’s not to say I won’t be blogging more about my Roman experience. You’re in for a treat over the next few posts. Rome is home to some pretty spectacular eateries and you simply must know about them.
Fratelli Scarpetta was a surprising find for me. Usually, I’d only frequent Repubblica because of the 24 hour pharmacy. But now, I have reason to return. Any restaurant which can convince me to eat fish is special. And on fish did I feast. Alici ripiene con mozzarella. They were quite special, as promised by the waiter.
They were nicely crunchy but gooey in the middle. There weren’t too many bones, which is a great relief to me. Just don’t eat the tail!
