Epicurean Delights

by Danilo Brunetti

Indulge in an exquisite meal of unexpected flavor combinations in an elegant setting. Federico Schiaffino shares his review.

Opened in 2016 just a few steps from Piazza Navona, with the aim of offering its customers an elegant and refined atmosphere on the upper floor of a 17th-century palace, SU Da Francesco offers an excellent selection of Italian and French wines, and a meticulous choice of high-quality fresh ingredients, all in one of the most exclusive Roman “living rooms” of the city center.

An evening spent in this restaurant is more than a simple meal, but rather a true epicurean experience. The passion for food and fine cuisine has led SU Da Francesco to create new dishes that bring together ingredients in original and brilliant ways, based on continuous research and discovery of new flavor combinations.

From the white truffle of Alba to the seafood of Porto Santo Stefano, from the Japanese Wagyu meat to the Iberian Pastores lamb, from the vast selection of Italian cured meats and cheeses to the legendary Jamón Ibérico and incomparable French cheeses, SU Da Francesco proudly offers some of the most famous national and international culinary products, creating an evocative and unique eno-gastronomic itinerary, by mixing ingredients from different culinary cultures.

Pairing high-quality wines with sophisticated food is a time- honored tradition of the most important Italian wineries as well as several French Terroirs, ranging from Champagne to Burgundy. To cap off the evening, a spirits menu offers more than 100 labels, ushering the diner into an entertaining and exclusive after-dinner experience.
