For a great restaurant in Rome with a good wine list, look to Giuda Ballerino! in Largo Appio Claudio, 344.
The name of the restaurant is inspired by the classic exclamation from the comic book character Dylan Dog, and if your dinner companion can pay the bill, better still as the exclamation could take on additional meaning.
Leaving aside discussions of money, if you’re happy to spend a little extra, this restaurant is an osteria, wine bar, caffetteria and enoteca (or wine shop) all in one.
Small but welcoming, the menu is tempting in its offering with prices appropriate for this style of restaurant.
One example of a dish is the lamb rack with caramellised endives and Tropea onions with blackberry sauce, washed down with a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.
The adventurous tastes and interesting wine list recommends this Rome restaurant.
