L' Insalata Ricca. Feb 04, 2017
This restaurant has three dining rooms where around 150 people can be seated. It has several outside chairs and tables to use if the weather is fine.

Here several kind of salads are served; in large bowls. If you don' t fancy a salad for lunch or dinner you can have pasta, other kinds of first courses and several meat dishes.

L' Insalata Ricca is a chain of restaurants. These are located in several areas of Rome. I went to the one in largo dei Chiavari.

I discovered this restaurant by chance. I was looking for my favourite restaurant; Tosca. Unfortunately they closed it down. It was located next door to L' Insalata Ricca.

The first time I visited this restaurant I had paccheri (a kind of noddles) with small tomatoes. I liked them much.

The second time I went there I had spaghetti with vegetables. These where quite good.

Pasta La Vista, ba-bee May 17, 2012
Turns out this is a chain, but their twelve locations are only dispersed throughout neighborhoods in Rome. As the name suggests, bountiful salads are the specialty, but the pasta does not suffer from a focus on greens. I ordered up some gnocchi pomodoro and it was a delectable feast! All major credit cards are accepted and the service was above average (for Italy, lol). We dined al fresco, but the indoor dining room was elegantly decorated (featuring paintings evoking Markus Pierson).

Perhaps inappropriate for a restaurant review, the bathroom captured my attention. The first notice was a porthole on the entry door which perfectly framed the toilet! It was a unisex lavatory with two rooms --- one with sink and another (possessing a door you could close to eclipse the porthole view) for the actual toilet. The fascinating feature, however, was operation of the sink. I had slowly caught on to how sinks in Italy were operated by foot pedals.

Originally stumped by a spigot with no knob to get water rushing, I eventually caught on to the foot pedal beneath. A perfect sanitary solution and probably much cheaper than the ‘electronic eye’ solution elsewhere, this lavatory had separate pedals with red and blue markers so you could actually manage temperature of the outflow. Perhaps a nuance, but the first (and only) time I noticed two pedals.

That aside, L’Insalata Ricca proved a superb (and inexpensive given the location) dinner choice --- recommended!
