Passeggiando per via Francesco Crispi vi renderete conto d’avere a portata di mano molto luoghi significativi di Roma: da Piazza Barberini a via Veneto, da Piazza di Spagna a Trinità dei Monti. Una strada collocata in una zona storica, affascinante, estremamente frequentata da turisti e residenti. A loro si rivolge il ristorante “Crispi 19”, un piccolo ristorante che da circa 10 anni ha modificato la sua offerta gastronomica proponendo una cucina mediterranea che parte dalla qualità degli ingredienti.

È qui che lo chef Fabio Mancuso crea i suoi piatti, basandosi su materie prime quali l’olio extravergine, carni selezionate, pesce fresco e prodotti di stagione, inserendo in menu la “Tartare di tonno rosso del Mediterraneo con uovo all'occhio di bue”, gli “Sfiziosi di orata e frutti di mare in brodetto di crostacei e verdure” e la “Mousse fredda di cioccolato bianco con crema di mango e panna cotta”. Grazie ad un restauro è stato possibile recuperare l’antico soffitto in legno naturale di castagno che rende unici gli ambienti, la sala da 22 posti e l’altro spazio con due salottini riservati. Posto elegante con rifiniture in legno, pavimenti in cotto ed affreschi in pastello alle pareti.

    Lovely authentic food in a cute little restaurant off the beaten track. We had the 4 course tasting menu and were not disappointed. Could not have managed any more. Great food and very friendly staff. Fantastic selection of wines, to suit any budget!

    Terrific find and a lovely meal. We had the 4 course seafood tasting menu with wine pairing. Every dish was outstanding and the wine choice spot on. They made a special effort for my wife's birthday, seating us at the window, singing happy birthday and toasting with a free glass of Prosecco. Service excellent, nice atmosphere, everything was simply perfect

    The best meal we had in Rome, excellent food and great service. The owner took time to chat and check we were enjoying ourselves. Loved the fish tasting menu with wines

    The dishes and service were superior. Too bad that they don't have Japanese menu anymore, although it is mentioned on the restaurant's website.

    Got the 7 course menu, after three plates we decided to stop since the food was especially fishy tasting. It made us totally lose our appetite and so we asked for check.

    The kitchen at Crispy19 really deserves a Michelin star. It is a pity the owners do not make an extea effort to improve non-kitchen aspects of the restaurant to bring it to Michelin star standard. Yet, on the other hand, guests can enjoy a truly supurb meals at very reasonable prices without paying extra for "niceties" like propertly printed menus or perfect English skills of the personnel. I would strongly recommend Crispi19 for a gourmet dinner.

    It is an unusual experience in Rome. This couldn’t be able to find in day time but vivid at night time. Food is really good. I’m glad that we followed the comments on TripAdvisor.

    The owner Mauricio greeted us and treated us like family. Good food and wine. No views of Rome, but you get to taste a good Roman meal. The dishes are light, so get the appetizer first and second course.

    A wonderful tasting menu was enjoyed in a private ‘snug’. An extensive and varied wine list. All around, a great dining experience, with an attentive staff.

    A bar during the day transforms itself into a superb restaurant at night serving beautiful food at sensible prices. Excellent service and not pretentious at all. Highly recommended
