The restaurant at Algergo Corona is in a beautiful setting over looking over the Lima River. In spring and summer it is especiially delightful when there are tables outside on the terraces. With the weather beginning to warm up the outdoor dining should begin soon..
We were invited last night to meet the new chef, Stefano Gallo, and try the new menu. Stefano has lots of experience both in Italy and overseas. This is evident in the execution and presentation of the dishes we enjoyed.
We chose a five course degustation menu and asked the chef to select them for us. Every one was delicious…take a look. 1. red mullet with pappa al pomodoro. 2.seafood soup. 3. cacio e pepe (particularly delicious) 4. cappelletti (another favourite) 5. cod with endive. The cheesecake dessert was a delightful extra.
I look forward to trying more dishes on the menu soon. I’m sure they will be every bit as good as the ones we enjoyed.
That looks so good I can’t wait to try it in September.
2 restaurants plus Bar Italia in Ponte a Serraglia now.
Has anyone taken over Marcos Restaurant?
Marco’s is still empty. It would be great if someone took over the space.
The food looks delightful Deb. We wish him/them every success.
It was great. We look forward to going there often.
Everything looks beautiful and delicious. I wish them lots of success
I hope the hotel and restaurant are busy this season.
That looks marvelous. I’ve often been tempted to try making cacio e pepe but have thought better of it.
I have not made it either. It is much easier if someone else does it.
See you soon!
I look forward to it.
The chef did a great job. We have been back to try a few other dishes and it was all good.
Beautiful presentations for each course of this meal. Hopefully he will be very successful.
I hope so too.
