Cul de Sac review Rate it

Rome's first ever wine bar, the Cul de Sac was founded in 1968. Looking very traditional nowadays, it's cramped inside and out, with long pine benches and tables, and decidedly no-frills. But the location - just off piazza Navona, with a ringside view of the 'talking statue' of Pasquino - coupled with reasonable prices and an encyclopaedic wine list, ensures full occupancy all the time. Food is standard wine-bar fare, with mainly cold dishes. The generous Greek salad and the lentil soup stand out.

Encyclopaedic......wouldn't have chosen a better word. I would add to that, the divine pates infused with the likes of truffles, chocolate and made from eg wild boar and other specialty game meats....also great accompaniments as well as wines from countries I never knew produced wine!
