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

Partire dagli ingredienti per creare il menu; basarsi sulla stagionalità e sulle disponibilità, anche quotidiana, delle materie prime per una proposta caratterizzata da una ottima tecnica che consente di esaltare i sapori dei piatti in carta. Il concept di Cuoco e Camicia, ristorante situato nel rione Monti, a brevissima distanza dalla Stazione Termini e dalla zona dei Fori Imperiali e del Colosseo, è estremamente semplice ma efficace: lo chef Riccardo Loreni prepara in cucina soluzioni di grande pregio, come il “Baccalà mantecato con spuma di topinambur”, i “Ravioli ripieni di agnello da latte, tartufo, asparagi e crema di taleggio”, il “Cannolo croccante di spigola ripieno di carciofi e salsa di soia” e la “Zuppetta di cioccolato bianco, yogurt, more e mandorle”.

Il locale è piccolo e accogliente, le sedie in legno abbinate ai colori delle panche si integrano alla perfezione in un ambiente davvero caratteristico e suggestivo grazie alla presenza dei mattoni a vista in pareti ed archi. Arredato con gusto e completato dal parquet e da una enorme lavagna con le proposte del giorno, il ristorante può contare su una carta dei vini molto ricca e variegata e su un servizio di sala estremamente professionale, in gradi di poter illustrare nel dettaglio ogni singolo piatto.

    We waited an hour to get the wrong appetizer then another 20 min to get the correct appetizer, which was simply cheese. The whole experience was very disappointing.

    Our family’s new favorite restaurant in Rome. It deserves to have at least a Michelin plate. Other restaurants in the Michelin guide that we tried in Rome were nowhere near this restaurant. Everything was fantastic!

    A return visit after 2 years and the cuisine continues to improve! Using fresh ingredients with the right kind of seasoning, the menu takes another positive step with usage of organic food and wines. We will gladly return.

    The first disappointment in Italy. We ordered a portion of octopus and a portion of tortellini carbonara with zucchini. The portions were so small (although they belong to the category of main dishes) that you need to take 5 of them in order to feel something. An octopus is a piece of its tentacle, and tortellini is six small pieces with liquid cheese inside and 6 thin slices of zucchini. Perhaps this is a restaurant of very high cuisine, but the dishes did not differ in taste or originality, but at the price of yes. I do not recommend it! And they ssid us they fon't work eith Fork...

    I had high expectations because of all the great reviews, and Cuoco & Camicia did not disappoint! We ate a la carte and found all the dishes innovative and delicious, complemented by very tasty amuses and bonbons with our digestif. Service was attentive and well paced and the location in a nice and quiet side street. We'll definitely be back!

    We got the tasting menu and it was amazing! There was a lot of thought put into all of the dishes and as the server informed us everything is homemade. The service was very friendly and was more than happy to explain each course to us. Would highly recommend to eat here.

    Small dishes, but if you like modern twists on old Italian classics, you'll like the excuse to try many different plates.
