Not as fancy as a ristorante, not as homey as an osteria, the trattoria is the perfect middle ground of Italian dining, and Ditirambo is no exception. With a beamed ceiling and stone arches, this dining room has a cozy, historic feel, well suited to its location near the Campo de’ Fiori.
Dishes often rotate based on what’s available at the market. The result is tasty traditional Italian fare made with the freshest ingredients possible. You might start your meal with a ricotta pudding with artichokes and pomegranate or a tasting menu of fish and seafood, before moving on to a homemade pasta like the classic cacio e pepe or a more substantial spelt pappardelle with rabbit sauce.
There is a wide range of meatless dishes on the menu. Try the eggplant “meat”balls, zucchini parmigiana with mozzarella di bufala, or smoky scalloped potatoes with black truffle.
