Hello to all new Chowhound friends, and particularly Maureen. This is BuckyE, a participant on the Slow Travel Fora. I'm popping in here asking for some **expert** advice. I've been Searching this forum and adding recommendations in general to my List, but this question is kind of specific, so I hope you won't mind my asking what may have been discussed before.
Loie and I will be taking our niece Alyssa to Rome this fall, in late September. Loie wants to return to the Enoteca Capranica for a nice supper. (We've had lunch there.) I wonder if there are any other particular recommendations for a semi-formal, Roman cuisine supper? I'd be happy to eat at the Enoteca again. We had a very nice meal and service there a few years ago. But it might be fun to try someplace else, too!
We'll be staying on via Margutta. This supper need not be close (a cab home afterward would certainly be an option), but I think in the inner city or Trastevere, perhaps Prati. Don't think for this we want to be as far afield as, say, Garbatella.
Note we're both fans of relatively simple cooking, and not particularly impressed by flashy presentation, although pretty is good. I'm also fairly curmudgeonly about local ingredients, so anyplace featuring Maine lobster or Kobe beef would probably not be our top choice. ;^)
Any advice on other venues like the Enoteca Capranica would be appreciated. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
