Restaurant Al 34: "Lively crowd, and good food" Al 34 Tip by Tijavi
Al 34, Rome: 3 reviews and 7 photos
In the midst of Piazza di Spagna along Via Mario dei Fiori among some of Rome's swankiest shopping district (and stinkiest, too), is this gem of a restaurant that boasts good food and a lively crowd. Just ask the friendly Bulgarian couple on the adjacent table who've eaten all their 5 Roman dinners in this restaurant (and it was their last night).
I really liked the pacheri (short pasta) with squid black ink sauce - the pasta was perfect, the squid undeniably fresh; just don't try to smile after enjoying this dish. For mains, I had grilled mixed seafood. Again, the freshness was undeniable, the sweetness of the crustacean mingling beautifully with the buttery, peppery and salty flavors. The dessert did not disappoint either. The panacotta with wild berries was luscious, creamy with the berries offering a contrasting tangy boost. Service was attentive and friendly.
