When legendary chef Jeremiah Tower posts a restaurant on Facebook, you’ve got to pay attention. And when you realize that if you and Tower were there at the same time there’d be no room for anybody else, you’ve got to not just pay attention–you’ve got to make a reservation. Housed in a 19th century building in central Italy, Solo Per Due–or “Just for Two” in Italian–has just one table. It seats, as the name says, just a duet.
The Solo Per Due website helpfully offers directions from Rome, Florence, Naples, Terni and Rieti. It doesn’t say that you should ride a scooter and look fabulous on your way, but that much is implied. The world’s smallest restaurant is open for lunch and for dinner. The menu features Italian dishes exclusively and wine from the very best cellars in Italy. No credit cards, by the way. And if you can convince Jeremiah Tower to go with you, you can be assured the conversation will be sparkling like the champagne. But best take someone you love.
