The Paper Moon Garden menu is divided into three sections: “without fire”, that is products processed as little as possible to enhance their freshness, “timeless”, therefore the evergreen, irreplaceable as a symbol of the Mediterranean tradition and the “inevitable season” which enhances the genuineness of the ingredients.

Fish is the great protagonist. From the raw as appetizers, tartare or chopped red prawns, to the inevitable mixed fry. In this season, excellent the cod in batter accompanied by a trio of sauces by the chef, as well as the risotto alla pescatora that triumphs with the freshness of squid and shellfish. Also noteworthy are the ravioli stuffed with burrata with red prawns, the Pacchero with tomato sauce and the linguine with seafood: traditional dishes that, if done artfully, as in this case, can give an extremely satisfying culinary experience.

The delicate baked croaker with vegetables deserves a taste too, served enclosed in a basket of bread, cheese and crispy tuna wrapped in grissini grains. The meat proposal is no less interesting: you can opt for the Milanese cutlet presented with a breadstick coating or a beef tartare with wild mushrooms.
