Pigneto Quarantuno

A friendly vibe and great food, Quarantuno is your pick in Pigneto.

If you know your Italian numbers, you’ll know that “quarantuno” means forty-one. Fitting as this neighborhood restaurant is located on the quaint street at number, you guessed it, forty-one. It also happens to be one of the best dining options in the up-and-coming culinary destination, Pigneto. With plenty of outdoor tables and a laid-back vibe, it’s a great place to hang out for aperitivi rolled into a full dinner on the ever-buzzing pedestrian-only section of Via del Pigneto.

The Menu:
The innovative menu and broad wine list is punctuated with the addition of a wide selection of daily specials focusing on the ingredients of Lazio. Don’t be surprised to find offal dishes such as pasta con pajata (pasta with veal intestine–don’t knock it!) or in-season dishes like pappardelle con zucca (pumpkin), sage and salted ricotta.

It’s a locals spot that will become a fast favorite.
