This restaurant, which features a lovely courtyard setting, is housed in a 16th Century building and is named after a love-affair that took place there. It is said that the artist Raphael met Margherita Luti here, a woman who became his model and with whom he fell in love. Margherita was nicknamed 'la Fornarina', being the daughter of a baker. The cooking is typically Roman with lots of fried food, pastas, vegetables, cheeses and herbs. The wines are, of course, mostly Roman. Eating under the trees in this romantic setting is a delight.

  It was on my first trip to Rome that I was brought here. We enjoyed a wonderful evening and I always enjoy a return visit.
