Trattoria Mario


Trattoria Mario
(cucina casalinga) at Via Rosina, 2/R is off the west corner of the San Lorenzo market. After a few hours in the Basilica di San Lorenzo and it being a rainy afternoon, what is one to do? Eat a big lunch of course. We headed over to Trattoria da Mario.

Mark had zuppa di ceci (chick pea soup) and lingue con salsa verde (tongue with green sauce). I had risotto con polpo (risotto with octopus) and maiale arrista (nice cut of pork). We split patate fritte (ok, french fries) and had vin santo and biscotti.
It was quite a hopping place. You can share a table with others (much quicker) or wait for your own table (not very many). We sat at a table with a French couple (friends) from Paris that we had a nice conversation with (in English). As we paid up front, one of the owners showed us their coveted Slow Food Ottavino d'Oro award.
