Rome local Alessandro and Susanna with a team of young enthusiastic friends and family with culinary and beverage expertise, coined the term ‘RISTROT’ to describe their novel restaurant and bistrot hybrid.

La Maisonnette Ristrot can be found in a historic 1920’s house in the foody, anti-tourist area of Garbatella. A few feet from the metro, it sits in stark contrast below the DNA-like super bridge Ponte Settimia Spizzichino linked to the student area of Via Ostiense.

The decor inside is reminiscent of a French retro bistrot with light, painted wood and mixed reclaimed furnishings. Outside, the garden’s rustic facade boasts striking Roman red terracotta with a large outdoor deck, a beautiful veranda and funky graffiti.

In the kitchen simplicity and freshness are reign supreme. The Mediterranean culinary style has modern twists here and there, and places an emphasis on fresh fish.

The ristrot’s new winter menu features cozy dishes starring seasonal ingredients. Appetizers include a terrine of duck with persimmons, Zibibbio wine, greens, and mandarin orange and a Scotch Egg revisited, made with cumin, hazelnut, and capocollo. Pasta dishes like orecchiette with oxtail, mascarpone, and cajun spice will warm you up on a chilly night; and secondi like rack-of-lamb with berberé, parsnips and  artichokes is an elegant take on comfort food. For dessert, indulge in a chestnut souffle with rosemary-infused custard cream, classic cheesecake with berries, and much more.
