Now that I’m living in Pigneto, I couldn’t help but stop in at the iconic Bar Necci, made famous by Pasolini’s Accattone. Of course a lot has changed since the bar opened in 1924 and the inside has a cool modern, but comfy, feel. There’s a nice outside patio seating area where I went this evening and braved the cold to sip wine with a friend. They brought us plates of yummy snacks, as is customary, which we happily munched on while eyeing the menu (also a restaurant, I’ve heard they make good food, but I haven’t eaten here yet). The bar was devastated by a fire back in April, but was completely rebuilt in just a few weeks and there’s definitely a local atmosphere inside. Just across the street they look to be putting in a gastronomia, so I’ll be on the lookout for that when it opens!
