If we had a couple of hundred euros to blow on a knockout meal for two with a decent bottle of wine, we'd be very tempted to blow it here. 'Agata' is Agata Parisella - a talented chef who was one of the first to demonstrate that Roman cuisine could be refined without sacrificing its flavoursome roots in mamma's home cooking. Among the primi, the cannelloni filled with a white duck ragù are memorable, their thin home-made pasta gratinéed to a delectable crispness, while the terrine of coda di vaccinara in celeriac sauce is an affectionately ironic - and, more importantly, delicious - tribute to a legendary Roman dish. The place is a family affair: Agata's husband, Romeo Caraccio, presides over the dining room and extensive wine list, while their daughter Mariantonietta is fast becoming one of Rome's most original and exciting pastry chefs (don't miss her triple-whammy choc-fest of semi-sweet chocolate cake with chocolate sorbet and chocolate semifreddo). The service is very professional, and the decor elegant but welcoming, with well-spaced tables.
