I've eaten here twice in a week at this little place. Very warm atmosphere and friendly. From the bar to the dining room, these people know what good service and amazing food is all about! I will be bringing my family back here for sure! BRAVO!!

Our anticipation of a delightful experience was soon destroyed by the rudeness and dismissive attitude of the Cief Server and his reluctance to explain the menu to us (the menu is only available in Italian). We restrained ourselves from walking out and ordered some plain pasta dishes as the Chief Server was so nasty and unhelpful. Overall, a most disappointing... More

The whole experience was spoilt by the lack of an English menu, the waiter was very arrogant in his reluctant rendition/translation of the menu, was hurried and very insufficient. This resulted in us being unable to properly understand the menu and misse out on probably some very interesting dishes. In order to avoid the fiasco we had to do with... More

This was one of the best meals I had in Rome. It opens a t 7 pm and when we arrived there was already a line-up to get in. If you have time, make a reservation if not be prepared to wait or if you get there for 7 pm be prepared to have only an hour for dinner as... More

I had the house special and maybe, cos I opted for home-made gnocchi, found the whole thing too be a little stodgy for my taste. My wife's chicken in tomato sauce buried in an avalanche of rocket, though recommended by the waiter was found to be very bland. Stones in the washbasin of the 'convenience' were a nice touch in...

This place is only rated poorly because there are 2. Food is excellent and it was the best food I had in Rome. Prices are excellent and staff and service is great. Make sure you go to the right one!

To the point: The staff treat you as a tourist, you are charged like a tourist, and ultimately its a mediocre meal for a hefty price. STAY AWAY!!!

My husband and I ate at La Carbonara during our trip to Rome because we had loved it so much the last time we went. 3 years ago I would have said this was one of the best restaurants I'd ever eaten at, but unfortunately, it did not live up to expectations this time around. The atmosphere was great, but... More

I was disappointed because that restaurant was recommended as one of the best in the city. The food was OK, but the to loud music (house or electronic) and unfriendly staff is rather not italian...
