The acronyms means ‘Cooperativa braccianti agricoli organizzati’, a cooperative of the farmers who cultivate the 40-hectare area surrounding this agritourism in the Insugherata Natural Reservation on Monte Mario, the highest hill in Rome. These fresh products from the garden are either sold at the food shop (together with olive oil, wine, tomato sauce and other home-made products) or served at the restaurant, which is open only on Sunday at lunch.
The menu is the same for all the diners and it is made up of nourishing, seasonal dishes. At a fixed price of € 22 you can try many different specialties and their cuisine is simple but very tasty, as the ingredients are all especially fresh and genuine.
I love the hippie vibes emanating from this place, the fireplace dominating the room with its warmth and crackling in winter and the tables scattered throughout the green field in summer, when you can eat surrounded by donkeys, dogs and more resident animals. It gives me the feeling of being far away from the hectic town (which –actually- is just a feeling, as this place is on Via Trionfale and just in front of the former mental asylum Santa Maria della Pietà).
