Chianina in Rome?

stagething Jan 23, 2012 02:52 PM

Can anyone recommend a restaurant in Rome where we can find a great Chianina steak in the Tuscan style?

    Hello Brady!
    In my opinion the best chianina in touristic areas is available at Dal Toscano in via Germanico, near the Vatican. There are different restaurants with a similar name in other areas, better to check the street name before going there. I definitely suggest that one for meat's lovers and they have also other nice Tuscan preparations. For the meat I personally prefer their entrecôte more than fiorentina (big steak with bone). Reservation highly recommended few days in advance.

      Dal toscano doesn't have real chianina. Actually i don't think any restaurant in rome has chianina, just a few butchers. I never understood/saw the difference before I had the real thing.
