When it opened towards the end of the last millennium,this Prati restaurant with its retro wood-panelled décor was one of the first places in Rome to take the fresh-and-local trattoria formula and give it a cordon bleu twist.The good news is,it's still one of the city's best bets for a mid-range gourmet meal.To sample what they do best,order the rigatoni alla carbonara-a classic Roman trattoria dish,given wings by the quality of the ingredients and the perfection of the technique.At the end of the meal they offer free,homemade Vov-a zabaglione liqueur-with sweet biscuits for dipping.With its well-spaced tables and refined,elegant setting,this is a good place for a romantic tête-à-tête.The lunch tasting menu-three courses for€25-is a real bargain.
