Est, Artigiani del gusto: for our guests who want healthy food and special wines.
We do not improvise, to achieve excellence you need experience, history, passion. Gelardo Marano, Filomena (the sister, in the kitchen), Alessia (the wife) have an important experience in catering and in the world of wines. For this Est, Artigiani del gusto located in vicolo della Cancelleria 11, even if it is a bit hidden, is always crowded with customers (better to book: tel. +39 0668803332), perhaps because it boasts a wine list with more than 600 labels, from eaten locally or to buy.
On weekdays, at lunchtime, they serve a very rich menu at the counter: first courses, meat or fish, many vegetables. All of quality and above all healthy. Low price: 8/10 euros. You can also choose from the à la carte menu, which is valid in the evening and on Saturdays, with proposals for fresh pasta, meatballs, cod, saltimbocca alla romana, tempting appetizers and many other dishes.
“There is a lot of attention to raw materials. I know many small producers, we use seasonal vegetables, cheeses from Puglia, special flours. We have large and small wine labels, so much so that in the center we are the reference winery », explains Gelardo Marano, known by all as Gerri.
We start in the morning with breakfast, with homemade cakes and artisan croissants, plus international breakfasts with eggs and more. Buffet or à la carte dishes for lunch, all with fresh products. And you arrive in the evening, with a high-quality menu and excellent glasses of wine.
«Our concept is to offer a healthy and simple cuisine, and whoever discovers us does not leave us. There is a strong loyalty, as well as in Rome, tourists arrived from Australia, from Scandinavian countries, from the United States to whom friends had reported our address. It is a great satisfaction ».
