Trattoria Penestri


Via Giovanni da Empoli, 5, Rome
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Trattoria Pennestri is in Ostiense, a modern residential neighborhood outside of Rome’s historic center where you can find more street art and apartment blocks than fountains and cobblestones. The menu includes classics like carbonara, amatriciana, and cacio e pepe, as well as less traditional dishes, like the decidedly un-Roman seared duck breast with different seasonal sauces. For dessert, try the chocolate mousse that’s served with Sardinian pane carasau, rosemary, and sea salt. Come here for lunch to sit on the patio under the umbrellas, or for a candlelight dinner in the cozy dining room.
