At a hidden corner in the 15th district we discovered this Italian restaurant, Il Tavoliere. One would expect a fake Italian chef who pretends to know what Italian cuisine is at first impression of this restaurant. Most probably because it used to be that kind of Italian restaurant.
A Southern-Italian chef took over the restaurant and for starters focuses on the important thing, the quality of the food. That the interiors are somehow cheesy, doesn’t matter at this point. The pizza has a fair price and is crunchy and thin like in Rome, it’s baked in an electric oven though. It is a good choice for a quick and easy dinner. If you are up for something more special, their menu offers some great Italian delights. A good starter is their “Antipasti for two”, with typical Italian cheese, sausages and pickles which come on 22 small plates (€ 22).
As a first course you might want to try some of their pasta dishes. The pasta is homemade, fresh and can be purchased for take-away too. The highlight on the menu is fish (sea bass or other) in salt crust, which is served by the chef on a serving trolley and prepared in front of your eyes.
All in all a restaurant for those who appreciate good quality food.
