I’m researching restaurants for my mother’s 66th birthday – which will be in Rome next year (yes - I like to plan ahead). We’re looking for something special – but not madly expensive. Her birthday is also on a Monday, which narrows the choices some. For example, L’Altro Mastai – which I discovered on a list on Maureen Fant’s site and which looks great – is closed Mondays.
What I’m finding really frustrating, though, is so few places tell you how much you’re likely to be up for – L’Altro Mastai and Il Pagliaccio (another find from Maureen’s page) being the notable and welcome exceptions. (Maybe it’s an Italian thing. Everyone in Sydney, even Tetsuya’s, gives the prices on their websites….)
So, can anyone tell me what the average prices are at Agata e Romeo and Il Convivio Troiani – for both the carte and the tasting menus (and also for the vino, if possible)???
I’d also like to get a feel for the prices at Al Presidente (even though it not open for dinner Mondays) and La Buca di Ripetta, which looks really – though more casual.
More than happy to look into any other places Chowhounders might like to recommend, too. I've got heaps of time....
