At their normcore spot in the shade of the Père Lachaise cemetery, Silvia Giorgione and Francesca Feniello (ex-Petit Capri Bazar) make a plea for the “slow life,” Lazio-style. So treat yourself to an hour or two seated around Francesca’s table, while she stitches together some divine family-style cuisine, taking inspiration from Campania to Piedmont. The day we went for lunch, we had an incredible vitello tonnato – based on a recipe from Vitel Etonné, the restaurant in Turin where the two amiche first met; trofie with sausage and Datterini tomatoes; before a rich mascarpone mousse with amaretti.

FEELING THIRSTY? Sulfite-free, often Italian wines: Dolcetto, a red from the Cachina Fontana estate (€6.50 a glass), a Nebblio Cachina Rocalini (€45 a bottle)…

PRICE: Set menus €13-20 (weekday lunch), à la carte €31-41.
