Located on Viale Aventino opposite FAO, Manioka is among the latest Japanese-Brazilian fusion restaurants to open in Rome. Indeed this is the second Manioka to open in the capital, after the branch on Via Ofanto in the Salario district.
The Aventino "boteco do sushi brasileiro" is housed mainly in a sprawling downstairs venue although it has a few brightly-coloured tables on the street too.
Dishes prepared by the restaurant's Brazilian and Japanese chefs include temaki, farofa and tenkasu, as well as a range of desserts, freshly-mixed juices and exotic cocktails.
