An awesome find in Rome
Don't miss Gallura, a Sardinian restaurant in Parioli, Rome's Beverly Hills. The salad of mullet roe, arugula and parmesan was the best dish I ate in five days of a lot of eating, and Myrto, a digestif made from some mysterious and wondrous herb that grows only in Sardinia, was by far the best thing I had to drink. On a warm night the tree-shaded garden could not possibly be more magical. Apparently a hangout of Roberto Benigni. Ten stars out of five!
I've been there. The terrace is one of the best settings in Rome and the food was very good. All in all I thought it was great, but then the person who'd taken us there, a regular, said that on a subsequent visit he'd been ripped off or eaten horribly or something I don't even remember and would never darken their doors again. Anyway, I certainly enjoyed it on my one visit and agree that it has a touch of glamour that's hard to find in Rome.
Mirto, made of myrtle, is a typical Sardinian liqueur usually served to those too faint-hearted (like me) to drink filù u ferru, the Sardinian grappa.
