You really do need to try to save a space for pudding at Cafe Annalita. I thought there must be a better translation of Pasta Prima than "hot crumb cake with cream". However I’d be at a loss to describe it better. All you really need to know is that it is fantastic, and has to be tried. Trouble is, so does the semifreddo di amaretti con cioccolato caldo. And the chocolate mousse is possibly the best in SF, and the selection of sorbets includes walnut, apricot and fig, all served in tiny portions in their appropriate shells... this really is food to die for.
To go with this feast there is a wine list of over 400 labels representing all the regions of Italy. Service is by charming and efficient young ladies, and the loo is five star. Enough said? One final note - there’s a no smoking policy at tables inside, a rarity in Rome. Booking advisable.
