Every time we have visited for lunch or dinner we have been blown away by the antipasti and primi we usually sample from. Even the caffe' macchiato we end our lunches with is special, with a little thimblefull of tiramisu to accompany it. bob stirs his miniportion into his coffee to give it that extra kick.

These "Giovedi' Gnocchi!" were heavenly in a delightfully simple sauce of anice and lemon. The pappardelle (whole wheat!) with artichokes in a redish sauce of pimento origin was unlike anything we have ever tasted. The carrot puree with 3 islands of bread cubes lifting up delticate little veggies was really nice. The cod "formato" (molded shape) was delivered by mistake for enough time to photograph before it was swept away to its rightful diner. Must have been amazing like everything else in this place. Fresh foccaccia helped "scarpetta" up the sauces. Air conditioned comfort, an option terrace view of Rome if weather permits it. All in all a spectacular venue for those of us infrequent visitors who can splurge for this level meal.

PS Made IT terraneo is a play on Mediterraneo = Mediterranean to start with Made in ITaly.
