We went here on day 2 of our stay in Rome. We were impressed by the welcome. A lovely family run Italian restaurant with good food at sensible prices. Delicious cold white wine for 7.50 euros. We went on day 2 of our Rome holiday and returned on day 4. The seabass on day 1 was wonderful freshly cooked and... More

Having read other reviews we declined the olives. We had veal in a sauce which was OK but the chips were frozen chips, the spinach was luke warm and the dish came with rather a lot of unispiring salad. I thought it was decidely average and pricey but in fairness to this restaurant average and pricey seems a common trait... More

We went to this place on our second night in Rome. Highly recommended by the hotel front desk. The entire experience did not disappoint. Pasta dishes were cooked to perfection. The flounder and red snapper were excellent. Tiramisu was exquisite. Service was top-notch which made us come back for 2 more nights! Grazie!

We went there on our second night in Rome, at the recommendation of the hotel staff. It was described as being good Italian food at a reasonable price. The description was correct. The staff were a bit slow at times but otherwise quite attentive. We had antipasti which received a mixed reaction from us, some of us loved it, some... More

Food and drink very good. Staff were friendly and not in a hurry to get rid of us like some restaurants. The place was always busy, good sign. We were charged for olives and bread which we didn't eat but from this we realised we just had to refuse the extras when visiting other restaurants as it is soon crossed... More

Owner is extremely helpful, food is exquisite, and prices are fine... Lovely evening but can do a bit more on the ambience... The Gnocchi and Veal are a speciality!

First up, its not a attraction. Its a restaurant. Second.. They charge was bread on the table, and refuse to accept that its their obligation to inform the customers of it. Walked out with a Bitter taste in our mouth of the lackluster food and being cheated.. Don't Visit

Really bad restaurant...spoilt our Roman ecebing experince. They had already kept olives and bread on the table and had no mentioned anywhere that they will charge for it, in the end they charged us 2.50 each person for the olives and 2.50 again each person for the bread, so we had to pay 10 euros more for the two of...

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighborhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 8pm.
