È possibile mangiar bene a Roma in zone estremamente turistiche? Per fortuna si, e la Taverna Angelica ne è l’esempio, grazie ad un’offerta di piatti preparati con ottime materie prime. Questo ristorante situato nei pressi del Vaticano, da due decenni propone una cucina che unisce tradizione e creatività con un menu che consente di scegliere indifferentemente tra carne e pesce. Un bell’ambiente, curato, con una mise en place essenziale e la predominanza di arredi in legno, un luogo sito in Piazza Americo Capponi che può contare anche su una carta dei vini (molti visibili nella elegante cantina a vista) piuttosto nutrita.

Tecniche moderne come il sottovuoto e la vasocottura per raccontare in chiave moderna il passato, ottenendo piatti come i “Gamberi in crosta di kataifi con miele su misticanza di verdure”, i “Ravioli al ragù di scorfano con emulsione al prezzemolo”, la “Tagliata di anatra con prugne caramellate e cipolle rosse” e la “Millefoglie di mela in pastella con miele e cannella”. In alternativa è possibile scegliere tra i vari menu degustazione ideati dallo chef, che prevedono ad un costo che varia tra 40 e 45 euro di poter gustare un piatto per ogni portata.

    Taverna Angelica is an adorable restaurant, attentive to every detail in every way. From the time you enter, you are treated like family. Mariella, one of the owners, is so kind and warm, and super at helping you decide between everything on the menu—because everything is just so delicious! The presentation of every dish is beautiful, and most of all the flavors they put together are unique and outstanding. I’ve never seen or had anything that wasn’t top. Also the wine selections by glass and bottle are superb. Don’t hesitate to come here. Make your reservation now !

    When you are on holiday we always hope to find that one special restaurant, for us this was it! The food and wine were delicious and the staff was very kind and clearly knew what they were talking about. You can tell the owner is extremely passionate about the restaurant and that shows in the quality of everything. We were with 2 people had 4 courses each and 2 good bottles of wine and spent about €75 per person. It was worth every cent. You can eat for less but do yourself a favour and have it all.

    Staff very welcoming and quiet atmosphere, the dishes were visually appealing and tasty as well. Starters were excellent, but main courses left us a bit disappointed. Good overall. No problems with the yums discount.

    A five-course "adventurous" menu: The cook doesn't understand that feeding your guest first with a handful of spelt (the "greeting from the chef":not bad in itself, but:), then with rice (so-called sushi: bland rice with nori coated in mashed potato!), then with rice again (risotto this time, tasteless again, though turnip-red nice to look at) bores the guests: nothing to tickle their palate. And make them wonder whether this only has the purpose of getting the guests's bellies filled... The pork-belly was just about okay, the problem that the main taste came from the pork itself, not of any of the other ingredients (what sauce actually was it supposed to be?); again we're at: boring. Lastly octopus arms, delicious, except again, the sauce didn't match the taste of the octopus, and the iced fruit did nothing to help. The dessert: good. Lastly, we hesitate to suspect that the fact we were charged twice for the dessert was deliberate, but one had better check the bill.

    This was my second visit to Taverna Angelica - and it didn't disappoint! I had some friends in town and wanted to have a nice, final meal with them in Rome. We were greeted enthusiastically on arrival (as they knew I was a returning guest) and seated immediately. Because we wanted to do some catching up, we were talking and didn't even open our menus for a while - they never hovered or seemed impatient that we were not ready to order. They allowed us to take our time and enjoy our time together - what an Italian meal is supposed to be all about. We ordered the house red - but our waiter skillfully suggested a much better wine for the same price - looking out for the customer! The food was, once again, delicious, well presented and portioned just right. We all got different deserts and shared them all around. GREAT! Although I must admit that the next time, it's Crème brûlée for sure! Thanks, Taverna Angelica, for another GREAT evening!
