Ristorante Re Degli Amici, Rome

Saltimbocca alla Romana

I'm trying to eat as many things unique to this part of Italy while we're still in Rome. So when we came here tonight (Via della Croce 33, 795-380), I ordered saltimbocca, a local veal and prosciutto dish cooked in butter. It was smaller than I was expecting, but then again, I hardly know this stuff. These thin cuts of veal were so tender and tasty that I wolfed this down pretty easily, even if it was a touch salty and sour. I was also delighted with that plate of mildly spicy chicory that I got along with it, as well as of course the €4 (US$5) carafe of house wine. I could get used to this.
