Back to da Lucia

Via Corsini, Rome, Nov. 14—
  • Trattoria da Lucia, Vicolo del Mattonate 2; tel. 06/5803601
  • A PLEASANT STROLL in the Botanical Garden down at the end of our street, and then midday dinner back at da Lucia, because I thought our Veronese friends should know about it. I wrote about it here a few days back, and again four years back and then some. Every time I eat there I like it more: homey, comfortable, quiet, off the beaten track but easy to get to. Today I just had a plate of spaghetti alla Gricia, with bacon and grated cheese; and afterward, for dessert, delicious pecorino from Pienza with a spoonful of first-rate honey.
