Happy Wednesday loves. I wanted to share our brunch at Pasticcio Rome as we were so happy to come across another cool spot to have brunch in Rome. I try to stay away from the full-on touristy areas especially when I want to eat out so I’m always super excited to share my discoveries with you guys.
Pasticcio is located on Lungotevere Portuense and in the midst of Testaccio and on the edge of the old City. The area is favourite amongst locals for its amazing selection of restaurants, bars, and clubs for its delicious food. To get to Pasticcio you take a lift to the 5th floor to enjoy not only delicious food but a spectacular view of the river Tiber and Aventine Hill. Aventine Hill is one of the Seven Hills on which ancient Rome was built on.
I love Rome as every corner involves a larger piece of history that if you are interested to discover, you will find yourself feeling super grateful to be there. Pasticcio interior was breathtaking, I thought 60’s were a major inspiration for their decorator. Pieces of furniture including large leather chairs and cowhide rugs really added the edge to what looked like an airy and bright warehouse. The roof did it for us, it was so gorgeous that I was quite annoyed at not having enough time to come back for a night out. I took a lot of pictures to show you guys
We arrived at Pistaccio on a Saturday for brunch Italian style. I was, to be honest, expecting your standard avocado on toast and eggs, however, Italians do it differently. Restaurant manager showed us to the buffet-like spread filled with Roman favourites including meatballs in tomato sauce and chicken cooked with peppers and of course, can’t go without bufala mozzarella and tomatoes. We quenched our thirst with a bottle of white wine. To finish we had espresso and fruit. The food was so delicious and service really attentive.
If you are looking for a cool restaurant with a roof top, you really need to visit Pasticcio when in Rome. You will love it
Have a good rest of the week!
