I have a Tipo 00 problem. It was the restaurant that I frequented the most in 2015. I’m pretty sure I was there at least 2x a month from about July onwards. Good news: I got to try almost everything from their delicious menu. Bad news: the wallet is lighter, the waist is wider and I ignored a lot of other new places.
This is my homage to Tipo 00, the love of my 2015.
Entrees: from the moment the yummy focaccia comes out at the start of the meal, you’re hooked. It’s amazing with salt, olive oil and cheese. My personal favourite of all the entrees is the arancini with mushrooms.
Goes without saying, the pasta is amazing. The most famous of them all is the “Tagliolini al nero – squid ink tagliolini, squid & bottarga” but my favourite is the “Gnocchi di patate – braised duck, porcini mushroom & pecorino” in it’s pillowy perfection.
For desserts, again, all very very good. But amazing is the “Tipomisù – chocolate, coffee & mascarpone“. Can’t go past the amazing dark chocolate cake with the super rich coffee chocolate sauce.
I’ve actually had to impose a ban on myself from going to Tipo too much this year. And after posting these pictures, I’m questioning my decision. I seriously can’t articulate how much I love this place.
