Ristorante 31 Al Vicario
of Carlo Repetto
Day and night Piazza del Pantheon is one of the most picturesque and busy sites in Rome. This helps to make the most both of a leisurely walk to Vicario’s and of its landlord’s motto «Slow, soft and light», which means light meals, refined atmosphere, and to take it easy when at the table - just to enhance folk wisdom suggesting that at the table people are never old. The most regular goers are the MPs from Montecitorio to have a break.
Buon Ricordo speciality
Maialino da latte arrosto, sale profumato alle erbe, spicchi di patate al forno e cicoria ripassata
This recipe is a declaration of intention paid to Mediterranean cuisine and homage paid to Roman tradition: a dainty version of porchetta. Tender lean meat cooked in a special way that enhances its lightness. Fennel and garlic slowly released by salt is the flavouring used to give a more agreeable taste. The recommended side dish according to tradition is chicory slightly dashed with hot pepper and dressed with extra-virgin olive oil.
