Stazione di Posta is located on the Southside of Rome, Italy. The Italian restaurant has a Michelin star with a tasting menu and à la carte options.
The restaurant is a trip from the city center. In addition, it’s pretty hard to find since it’s tucked away in a remote area; it’s in a grassy area with a bunch of horse stables that resembles a horror film. It’s an odd area for one of the few Michelin starred restaurants in Rome.
Stazione di Posta’s service was awesome. From hostess to the waiters, everyone was very accommodating and they did a wonderful job explaining the dishes in English. It was a very relax atmosphere and the restaurant was filled with Americans. The restaurant is split into two sections — a bar/lounge area and dining room. The tones of the restaurant was very welcoming and the lighting definitely helped highlight each dish.
Now, the food. We went with the tasting menu and here are my favorite dishes:
- Amuse Bouche – This was the first thing that came out. There were a number of items to get the appetite started; the highlight was a traditional Asian pork bun. I didn’t expect to see an Asian dish on an Italian menu; it really shows how different cultures are intermingling and I absolutely love it. It was very simple without any hoisin sauce. The pork was very tender and it tore easily apart when I bit into it.
- Rigatone – The ‘surf and turf’ dish mixes land and sea. The rigatone was al dente and it made the texture chewy. Al dente was pretty consistent across all Roman restaurants. The assorted seafood and chorizo provided a very robust taste and contrast to the rigatone.
- Piglet – The piglet was served with potatoes, apple, and mustard garnish. The purée potatoes and apples had a sweetness to balance the large slab of pork. The tender and succulent pig gave me an understanding of Anthony Bourdain and David Chang’s love for pork. The mustard provided a tangy flavor to the dish.
Overall, Stazione di Posta was a good experience. There wasn’t many people dining here, so it felt like a private experience. The cocktails were all wonderful and the food was decent. However, there wasn’t one dish that stood out for me. In addition, it wasn’t one of the best dinning experience I’ve had but it wasn’t the worst dining experience. In my honest opinion, I thought Stazione di Posta was an average Michelin starred restaurant.
