    Al Cantuccio: A Little Corner for You

    by von.otter Updated May 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The English translation of this ristorante’s name is little corner. It will become your little corner of dining heaven.

    Dining at Al Cantuccio is a personal experience because it is a personal labor of love for its owner, Carla and her mother, who does all the cooking. Carla greets guests, who are clearly repeat diners and friends, with hugs and kisses. There is much laughter to go around.

    A menu? There isn’t one. Carla or her only staff member, Felicia, will come to the table and tell you, in Italian, what is available that night. There is a selection for each course but it is a limited choice. Don’t worry. Even I, a 37-year vegetarian, had no trouble with the selections that Carla, who does speak a bit of inglese, picked for me; one was ravioli in a lemon sauce that was delicious.

    We dined indoors, where the décor resembles an over-stuffed Victorian living room; but it is charming not cloying. There is an outdoor dining porch that is well screened from the street by a high hedge.

    With wine, our meal cost $100 per person; credit cards are accepted.

    You will need to take a taxi to Al Cantuccio because it is located outside the centro storico of the Eternal City. The restaurant will gladly call a taxi for your return trip, but do be advised that these reserved taxis charge a premium.
