Rome’s top craft beer pub just got even more carb-tastic. In addition to their outstanding (mainly Italian) beer selection, scrochette (potato croquettes), and flavored potato chips (get the licorice), Open Baladin is now serving pasta.


The new menu, which was created by Gabriele Bonci, was inaugurated today. It features tagliatelle with veal ragu and ravioli with pecorino and crispy guanciale.

  • The question I’ve been biting my tongue about for about two years now:

    Has the whole world gone craft beer crazy? Do people actually go to Rome (or Italy in general) to drink beer made in small batches?

    (Ducking the brickbats…)

  • Well, Marion, I don’t have to since I already live here. But I would.

  • ditto…I have the good fortune to live in a place in the States where I can buy Baladin beers (though for a high price), but if I flew to Rome tomorrow, Open Baladin would be one of my first stops. Teo Musso is making interesting, world-class beers, and he is one of the few working toward a terroir concept in beer. Thankfully, not many people go to Italy for this purpose yet, but I would undoubtedly would.

  • I am craft beer crazy and had already scoped out Open Baladin. This place is a 8 minute walk from where I will be staying – hooray!
