Dinner In Rome

 Enoteca Capranica
Piazza Capranica 99-100
(buzz the doorbell!)
- mainly seafood, the Tyrrhenian Sea menu was delicious
- excellent professional service

Palazzo Capranica is one of the few surviving buildings of Rome dating back to the 15th century. 
The palace is an interesting example of the beginning of Renaissance architecture (1457). 
It preserves, together with elegant cross-windows, marble trefoil double lancet windows. 
The palace was built for cardinal Domenico Capranica
 who wanted a residence for his family and a college for clergymen.

 Ad Hoc
Via di Ripetta 43
- good food
- kind of young and trendy (although not!) atmosphere

La Rosetta
Via della Rosetta 8-9
- delicious food, rather expensive
- sort of chaotic atmosphere
- got a pack of biscotti to take home

Had made bookings to all three restaurants in advance.
In every place the food was served 
in square or glass plates...
Have to say the food was well-prepaired and tasty 
in these 3 restaurants, 
being perhaps a bit too critical,
but in Italy you expect to get a "heaven has landed" experience, don't you?
