This is a typical Italian osteria in the center of Matonge. Rue de la Paix hosts a lot of restaurants, but this little Italian place, simple in its decoration, offers genuine Italian food made with fresh products coming from local producers in Bologna. Giacomo opened in late 2013, and nowadays you have to book in advance if you want to get a table. Giacomo recommends the maccheroni guanciale (pig’s cheek) with pecorino talamello. Highlights also include the scarmorza ravioli with aubergine, and the heavenly homemade tiramisú. Service is friendly, the wine is excellent, and the food shows why Italian cuisine is always popular.
