Why to visit Altrove Ristorante


Altrove is a restaurant with the mission of promoting inclusivity and social awareness through food: first, by employing a multicultural staff, and second, by providing a diverse menu of international dishes. It serves as a training ground and economic boon for marginalised young people, including immigrants and disenfranchised Italians, and allows them to hone their cooking and service skills in a safe environment. It is open from morning to night and features a café, a pasticceria, and a restaurant that combines Mediterranean flavours with the native cuisines of its employees – order a buffet plate for lunch or à la carte dishes like tempura, ceviche, cous cous, and kofta for dinner.

Lunch is a relaxed, canteen-style affair with daily-changing meats, grains, and sides. Even vegetarians, who are usually out of luck in this carnivorous city, will find something to like here, with salads, soups, and cheese, as well as fresh-from-the-oven breads. When it comes to dinner, the cosmopolitan menu offers creative takes on Roman dishes like risotto d'acqua (carnaroli rice cooked in tomato-tinged water with lashings of pecorino cheese and a sprinkling of briny fish roe), which serves as a warm-up act to plates of—gasp—gluten-free chicken cooked in ginger and fennel and spicy lamb meatballs stewed in. 

Special Tip

Don't forget to leave room for the bitter chocolate mousse, which is topped with creamy gianduja milk chocolate and tart raspberries.
