Vicolo delle Grotte 27, Rome
I arrived at Da Sergio at just about 15 minutes after they opened. As I entered I got the look of, "what the hell are you doing here?"
The interior of Da Sergio is about as typical as you can get. Red check table cloths, tired old pictures on the wall, beamed ceilings and a stuffed boars head watches over you as you eat. The staff seems to be mostly female dressed in red and shite striped shirts an white caps. They also won't be winning any congeniality awards.
Since it is Thursday I thought I would try some Gnocchi. In case you don't know, Thursday is Gnocchi day in Rome. My dish is served up rather quickly and is loaded with Gnocchi in a meat sauce (€8).
The texture of the Gnocchi is pretty pastey and the sauce reminds me of school cafeteria food. Now that I think of it, the staff here also reminds me of the lunch ladies in an elementary school.
I really thought you couldn't get a bad meal in Rome. I guess I was wrong!
