This restaurant has a wide range of options for meat eaters, but almost none for vegetarians. The portions are normal, though the quality of the food is average. I found it a bit too expensive for the quality served. I hate those restaurants that offer (or even without asking bring to the table) bread and water and then charge you... More

This is a typical italian place where they do not speak very much english, but that does not matter, because the service is very good, the atmosphere is absolutely lovely. Lots of local people and tourists in a good mix. You will be disappointed if you think the dishes are served with a lot of sides, potatoes, sauces etc. This... More

This place is a buzz with character. We had fillet steaks cooked over the wood ash. The steak had no seasoning on it and really tasteless. We asked for French fries to go with the steak but they said they didn't do them. Only grilled...which was a sliced baked potato put over the bbq ashes to grill. They were cold,... More

If you are in Rome and fancy something different to all the restaurants that have the same basic menu outside and don't want to pay the prices charges by the restaurants along Via Veneto, then you can't go far wrong with Il Ciak in the Trastevere area - just across the Ponte Sisto. The food is mostly cooked on the... More

We came and ordered pasta wanting just a light meal but the meat on offer looked so fresh. The pasta we had was average and some slightly surly table service probably because we ordered pasta rather than meat! Not bad, but probably would not return.

There was a bit of a wait but it was well worth it. Passed the time watching the chef as he slaved over the open barbecue. The display case was also pretty cool. Awesome steak and bruschetta though my husband wasn't as excited about his osso buco. Would make a point to return next time we are in Rome.

Ok, this is a hunter's restaurant. So don't come here if you are vegetarian. I come here every time I am in Rome, what a fun place! We were staying near piazza bologna and i wasn't sure which bus to take so i called. I do speak italian so that helps, and the signora informed me which bus to take... More

The wild boar and wood fired game is special. Lots of game birds as well. As far as those go they are good. Add lamb, steaks and pork and it is a carnivores' delight. The wild boar and venison are both terrific. The lamb kabobs are tough and lack seasoning. They need to learn how to do veggies. Done on... More
