The name of this Italian restaurant by Aram Mnatsakanov (author of Probka and Mama Tuta) refers to a Roman tradition: men would propose by presenting their future brides with an engagement ring hidden inside a small pastry with whipped cream. A spacious hall with fifty seats maintains a cozy atmosphere in the evening, and the second floor has a balcony that offers a view of Patriarch's Ponds.
As in Mnatsakanov's other projects, the chefs work in the open kitchen, and the guests can watch them cook. The menu offers traditional Italian cuisine: various Neapolitan pizzas, grilled marbled beef, and focaccia bread. Restaurant specials include seafood dishes: Sicilian-style octopus and northern halibut fillet with zucchini and spinach. Any dish (and especially the pizza) can be prepared without gluten or lactose.
Make sure you book a table in advance — this applies to every restaurant at Patriarch's Ponds.
