Almost 25 years ago, a restaurateur in NYC told us that next time we are in Rome, we must go to restaurant Due Ladroni (two thieves). Over the years we have passed the restaurant a number of times but never went in. In fact 2 years ago we rented an apartment around the corner and passed it almost every day. Michele said we have to go there one day. Last year friends went for dinner and told us how wonderful it was, the food, service and decor.Finally, last February we rented an apartment a few short blocks from the restaurant. It was very rainy and cold in Rome, so one night we decided to go to Due Ladroni because it was close by. We went for dinner and had a great meal.
When we finished dinner the woman at the next table was still on her main course- -it was langoustine and I could smell the delicious aroma. We went again just before we left Rome and had another great meal. That time, I had the langoustine and I have been thinking about them ever since. So now that we are in Rome again, we returned to Due Ladroni and had another wonderful meal.
Michele had the Tonnarelli Gamberi Pistacchio to start.
I had the Spaghetti ai Moscardini. Moscardini are tiny octopus.
Due Ladroni is now one of our Roman favorites. We have been there three times and have always been pleased. Michele and I plan to be back again soon.
