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...

We ordered pasta, with and without gluten. Service was very polite and nice. Got bread, olive oil and tasty green olives before the food was served. The food was very good. Recommended

Reception at our hotel recommended this restaurant as it was just around the corner and traditionally Roman which was what we wanted. The owner welcomed us and was lovely, our waiter did not have the same charm unfortunately. We had nice dishes of veal and fillet steak, bit disappointed that there was not much of a promised salad garnish with... More

I travelled to Rome on the weekend in February when they had over 6 inches of snow which quickly turned to ice. Most of Rome was shut due to the snow...however La Cantinola was open! The staff were fantastic and the food was excellent. They started us off with a complimentary piece of their lovely bruschetta. Then I asked for... More

Our hotel recommended La Cantinola on the first night of our trip and we were not disappointed. Mainly filled with locals the atmosphere and the staff were fantastic and the owner also came out to greet us. I ate the house pasta, 'Pasta alla Cantinola' and thought it was superb and great value for around 10euros. The wine was also... More

I thoroughly recommend this place. My wife and I found it by accident and enjoyed it so much we went back the next evening ,our last in Rome. Between us we had the best Steaks and Ravioli we have had eating out anywhere and at a reasonable price. Customers are a mix of locals and tourists and there is a... More

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.
