A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Percorrendo le strade di Roma dalla zona est verso la parte nord della città, arrivati all’altezza di via Giacomo Pagliari, ci si può imbattere nell’Osteria dell’arco. Tra Porta Salaria e Piazza Alessandria, a breve distanza da via Nomentana, questo locale propone una cucina che omaggia tutto il nostro paese, ed in particolare Roma, il sud (da Napoli alla Sicilia), senza dimenticare la tradizione della pasta fresca e di quella ripiena. Il menu, completato da piatti del giorno, strizza l’occhio alla semplicità attraverso l’utilizzo di prodotti a km0, molto spesso biologici e di piccoli produttori.

L’ambiente è elegante, raffinato, curato nei dettagli e caratterizzato dal legno, che ritroviamo nel bancone, nei tavoli, nelle sedie e nelle splendide vetrine, e dai mattoni che rendono unica la struttura muraria. Grande importanza alla selezione delle etichette che compongono la carta dei vini, la cui ossatura è costituita da prodotti italiani ed in piccola parte su quelli stranieri. Sfogliando il menu la nostra curiosità è catturata dalle “Alici imbottite al profumo di agrumi in foglia di porro, insalata e arance”, dai “Perciatelli con guanciale croccante di Cori, filetto di pomodoro scottato e pecorino”, dalle “Costine marinate di maiale alla piastra, cicoria ripassata” e dal “Tortino fondente di cioccolato 100% [Nicaragua-Cuba] e composta di arancia all’anice stellato”.

    Wonderful food just steps away from our hotel in Rome. Read about it in a travel book that was purchased in San Francisco.

    We loved the light lasagna, the grilled octopus was perfect, and the semifreddo of torroncini with chocolate and grappa was our all time favorite. Only the raviolini with broccoli and anchovies was not to our taste as we felt the anchovy taste overwhelmed the vegetable.

    The restaurant is in a vibrant up and coming area and was quite close to our hotel. When we arrived they were quiet but they filled up quickly, it is a very cosy friendly atmosphere. The menu is not extensive but good. We are non meat eaters and had no problem with selection. The wine menu is large, we were assisted in our choice but did not feel pressured into choices, just right. Service was good, food excellent, not cheap but worth it. Would definitely return.

    We ordered steak well done but the steak was rare inside. However other dishes were nice, like the octopus dish.

    The 2 waitresses were a delight. Very fast, helpful and seamlessly flowing from English to Italian. The lovely starters and bites for dessert on the House were unexpected and delicious. Food was good and interesting. Menu small but unique and daily specials add to it. I will go back to try additional dishes!

    Wonderful food and atmosphere. The linguini Amatriana was the best I have had with the bacon delightfully crisp, but light. Also a nice personal touch that the chef comes helps take your order so you know what is the best dish to have that day. This restaurant is what Rome is all about.

    Great find, off the tourist trail. Good authentic Italian, very tasty. Not much English spoken but no matter, staff very friendly and accommodating. Reasonably priced food, great wine selection.

    This is a lovely place to enjoy dinner, and I have dined here three times. The dishes are a mix of traditional Italian and those with a bit of something new. I love the choices! The decor is charming, and the wait staff extremely pleasant, accommodating, and helpful in explaining the choices. Highly recommended!

    We tried Osteria dell'arco a few years ago and then again on Saturday and liked it even more this time. Each menu item is creative, combining traditional dishes and ingredients in a new - and delicious - way. The wait staff were friendly and helpful, and the pace of service was comfortable. The small cozy space is quiet and intimate. I look forward to my next visit!

    Very short menu, but many appealing choices. Food was well-prepared and somewhat unique. Nice side dishes, which is a bit unusual with Italian secondi. Excellent wine recommendations.
