In the heart of Rome, just steps away from Piazza Navona, Il Convivio Troiani is a refined restaurant that offers, according to chef, Angelo Troiani, a retro but very current cuisine.
Without ever losing its strong bond with the territory’s cooking, traditionally rich, hearty and tending toward heavy, the chef has rediscovered the ingredients for Romanesque Gastronomy, bringing them to the table in a contemporary and lighter version.
The A la Carte menu allows diners to choose between whole portions and tasting portions, and includes dishes such as: Fried battered zucchini and borage flowers, mozzarella di bufala, cream of anchovies with sweet and sour piquant pepper sorbet, Tightly wrapped fattened goose liver en croute with dried moscioni figs, Bronte pistachios, and rosemary brioche, Mantovana squash Bio-risotto with Gransardo cheese, Small sea snails alla Bourgognon, Lamb shank from the Lazio region countryside with black truffle sauce and Roman artichokes alla Giudia, or Deboned Vaccinara ox tails “in the new way” with celeriac purée.
Tasting menus of four or six dishes are also available.
The wine list, put together by Massimo Troiani, includes about 3,000 labels including Italian, French, as well as wines coming from other countries such as Spain, Australia, New Zealand, California, Chile, and embraces some lesser known wines, such as, for example, a Dutch Riesling.
