In the heart of Rome, in the middle of Trastevere area, begins the story of three young boys. A story that starts from the classic Italian culinary reality: the pizza.
Trying to offer some unusual feeling for such a common dish, their main focus was on another classic dish offered to the customers: the bruschetta. That slice of bread becomes the basis on their experiments for new gastronomic trips.
Slowly curiosity becomes word of mouth and soon the demand for bruschetta exceeds the one for the pizza. It was the right time to give an identity to this fast way to conceive the Italian kitchen: born Brusco Lo Strabuono
Brusco Lo Strabuono: what can you eat?
At Brusco Lo Strabuono you can simply enjoy a meal served on a plate that you can also eat: a slice of toasted bread, home-cooked, crispy outside and soft inside.
The Brusco menu ranges from local dishes such as Cacio & Pepe, Polenta, Parmigiana and Lasagna to foreign territories’ kitchen as the famous Bismark or “Mr. Donald’s” fast food conception.
The toppings are all very generous and good, with always fresh and seasonal menu rotation commodities. But there is also a reinforced version of some bruschetta! The Strabuono name is in fact an addition that allows you to make the same bruschetta with a more determined and different flavor.
And finally, of course, you cannot miss the dessert. Brusco offers its variety of Cream Cake and Tiramisu on the bread. An explosion of sweetness that probably my grandmother will give as a snack to all his grandchildren!
Where is Brusco Lo Strabuono?
Brusco Lo Strabuono is at Vicolo del Cinque 22/A in Rome, in the heart of Trastevere (really near the famous Piazza Trilussa). Open all days from noon untile 2/3 a.m., closed on Monday.
