In Via delle Forze Armate, 405 you will finally find real tavern with low prices, homemade food and the ambience that used to be… Here, the good relationship between client and owner rules! The owner, lo Smilzo has a partner called Sintesi: he is completely deaf and takes your order following the movement of your lips… He is an expert!
In the kitchen Elena – Smilzo’s wife – prepares delicious risotto, pappardelle, dumplings, pasta and beans, braised meat, baked shin and osso buco with polenta… Not to mention the desserts and the famous peach and chocolate cake… For lunch a fixed price menu – €9 without drinks!
The most important thing… This is the tavern motto:
Osteria alla Grande… The last stronghold against hamburgers, vegetarian food, orzo and for those being on a diet!
