A small place with a see-through kitchen run by Chef Alba Esteve Ruiz. She’s just in her mid-twenties but making quite a splash on the Rome dining scene. She is taking some of the standards and putting a nice twist on them as well as coming up with some completely new combinations. They offer several tasting menu options as well as a la carte options. They will substitute one item for another as long as the whole table agrees, which opens up a world of wonderfully individualized tasting options. It is a fairly casual vibe without losing any of the service you expect from a fine dining restaurant – making it a really enjoyable dining experience. For example, they offer purse stools which are actually a child’s chair – fun yet functionally elegant. The dining room wraps around the pass through kitchen window, which slides up and down and thus keeps the kitchen noise from upsetting the dining room – another nice touch. We chose the Alba tasting, named for the chef – how can you lose with that? We certainly didn’t!
