Aperitivo Fluviale - May 29, 2014

Next in our exploration of aperitivo spots, we'll be gathering at a hot location in the Quartiere Ostiense, Porto Fluviale, a 900 sq. m. multi-space, multi-function restaurant in an area that has witnessed the fusion of strong Roman popular traditions and cosmopolitan contemporary additions.  

A short walk away from the ancient Roman pyramid, from the "temple of Italian food" that is Eataly in its fabulous conversion of the Air Terminal Ostiense (originally built for the 1990 World Cup) and from the "industrial archeology" of the Gazometro, Porto Fluviale has quickly become a focal point in a quartiere brimming with new gastronomic venues.

Our aperitivo menu
1 drink: choice of either
one FluviAle beer (signature draft golden ale “L’Olmaia”) or a glass of red or white house wine or a soft drink

4 “cicchetti” (tapa-sized treats):
panzanella (Roman bread and tomato salad)
polpetta di melanzane (eggplant croquette)
involtino di Nero dei Nebrodi (prized Sicilian pork)
stracciatella di burrata e pomodori (soft cheese and tomatoes)

Special dietary requirements can be met if communicated upon RSVP.

Where: Porta Fluviale, Via del Porto Fluviale 22, 00154 Rome (near Gazometro/Piramide/Eataly)
