18 days of fresh high quality seafood dishes combined with a careful selection of wines, sparkling wines and beers at Eataly
Seafood returns as the protagonist of Eataly’s summer edition of Fish & Wine – an 18-day festival that spans from events and tastings dedicated to seafood that will take place from 8 to 25 August. From seafood crudité to oysters, from international-style tapas to crispy fried seafood, from spaghetti with telline and fish soups, fresh and sustainable seafood awaits you all through August. But that’s not it, all tastings are paired with exclusive wines or beer selected for the occasion.
August in Rome? Fish & Wine is always open!
For the entire duration of Fish & Wine, you’ll find for lunch and dinner special dishes on the menus of Eataly’s Pasta, Pizza and Birreria restaurants. Get ready to get a taste of the seaside in Rome! Among the proposals also fried seafood (the good one that’s also good for your mood): anchovies, squid, pink prawns, salt cod in in a delicious batter and fried in quality oil. And for pasta lovers, the gran padellata di linguine ai frutti di mare.
If you head to Forma Ristorante, you can choose from dishes like Spaghetti with sea urchins and paprika, Spaghetti with telline and the fish soup of Civitavecchia. Every day for lunch and dinner, you’ll also find a space dedicated to the Cuopperia di Pasquale and Gaetano Torrente. From 12pm to 8pm every Friday and Saturday and from 12pm to 6pm on Sundays there’ll be an appointment with Eataly’s Fish Auction and Fish Market.
Special events not to miss
Fish & Wine kicks off with a dinner in collaboration with Singita Miracle Beach and Coldimar Fregene on August 8th and 9th. A menu that ranges from crostini with marinated anchovies, stracciatella and green sauce, to seabass carpaccio. Dishes will be paired with a selection of wines from the wineries of Marco Carpineti, Poggio al Tesoro, Fontanafredda, Raffaele Palma and Tornatore.
On August 16th, the protagonists will be tapas and fried antipasti at Birreria di Eataly in collaboration with Sale – Fish&Spirits di Fiumicino, for an aperitivo or a delicious summer dinner. Entertainment couldn’t be missing either with live music! On August 17th and 18th the fun continues at Birreria Eataly with aperitivo or dinner with Ostriche & Stout in collaboration with I.Wai Food. An explosion of tastes that becomes the perfect end to a day on the beach thanks to the combination of oysters with the Perle ai Porci di Birra del Borgo stout, a soft and full beer with a pleasant salty finish given by the molluscs with which it is produced. For those that don’t want to pass up on wine, the timeless combination of Marco Carpineti’s Kius Brut Millesimato is the perfect answer.
While the Calafuria Fisheries Cooperative of Ostia brings to Eataly two great Italian seafood classics: spaghetti with telline or spaghetti with lupine clams will be the protagonists on August 22nd and 23rd at the Pizza e Cucina restaurant
