Ambasciata d'Abruzzo

26, Pietro Tacchini St.
Rome, 00197 Italy
Excellent food. Appetizers, Dessert, wine and liquors included in the fixed price meal. Good quality. Specialties, wines, liqueurs, from the Abruzzi region.

In the heart of the most renowned area of Rome "Parioli ", Ambasciata d'Abruzzo, since 1964, welcome its clients with wonderful food imbued with typical Roman and Abruzzi flavor.

In its newly renovated banquet area, spacious and discreet, Ambasciata d'Abruzzo can accommodate meetings, catering to small and big parties. It serves the traditional fare as well as simple and tasty dishes, like cured pork meats, "mozzarella", "ricotta", "bruschette", smoked ham, meatballs and the typical "fagioli con le cotiche" (beans flavoured with pork rind and aromatic herbs), prepared with wholesome products.

"Located in Parioli, the overall most affluent residential neighborhood of Rome, it’s amazing how reasonably priced and down to earth this wonderful restaurant is. You must start with the house antipasto array, which always includes vegetable dishes, a frittata of some sort, and, perhaps best, a selection of salami from the region of Abruzzo, dried sausages and ham, most of which you cannot get in the States. (I am particularly fond of the dried sausage with liver.) The cheese and spinach ravioli dressed with butter and sage are also a must. Then you are on your own if you can fit in anymore. There is also a gargantuan set-price feast. You may want to ask about it. The rooms, including a wine-lined side one, feel substantial and comfortable. The atmosphere at both lunch and dinner is lively with local customers, including families who come for the set-price meal..."

Ambasciata d'Abruzzo serves a large selection of fresh fish dishes like "carpaccio di polpo" (raw polyp), "orecchiette con gamberi e zucchine" (typical regional pasta with prawn and courgettes), fish salad, "risotto alla pescatora" (rice with many types of fish), "tonnarelli alla spigola", "spaghetti con le sarde", "coccio al guazzetto" (a very good fish sauce with bread served in a typical plate), "scampi alla griglia" (grilled fish).
