What people are saying

  • I Cento (2018) includes them among their favorite 50 “Pop” or informal restaurants in Rome and explains the social mission of the restaurant – to provide culinary training to young people who are migrants, refugees, and second generation immigrants – but they “could not have included it among the best one hundred addresses of the city if it had not convinced our palate as well as our heart.”
  • Tavole Romane (2018) includes Altrove in its roundup of new drink spots, saying that aperitivo hour is a great time to test their Mediterranean and intercultural cuisine. There’s a formula for 8€ that includes a drink plus one dish with four different tastes between 18-20h from Monday to Saturday.
  • Puntarella Rossa (2018) visits for the weekend brunch (Saturday & Sunday) and finds a wide selection of cereals, meat, fish, side dishes, and daily specials with dessert, bread, water and coffee all included for 15€ (8€ for kids).
  • Tavole Romane (2017) reviews many dishes, recommending the “melandola” (eggplant caponata coated in oats and almonds and fried) among the antipasti, and loving the risotto with bottarga and pecorino as well as the “robustly flavored” pasta with sheep ragù.
  • Romeing (2017) in an article about Rome’s migrant population, they explain that Altrove “trains young people ages 16 – 25 to be chefs, bartenders, and wait staff, and employs a portion of their graduates. The project grew out of educational work at the Centro Informazione e Educazione allo Sviluppo to offer practical skills and a job for the disadvantaged. Altrove selects students for their school based on need, and liaises with local associations who work with refugees as well as residents.”
