We were actually staying next door at the Rome Times Hotel so decided to give this place a try. Unfortunately they were fully booked for the Saturday night so we ended up going on Sunday - worth booking if your interested in going. The food was really nice, and certainly different from the usual restaurants in Rome. We actually felt... More

Pleasant restaurant with lots of character, our starter was amazing, beef carpaccio , main pasta was a little undercooked and waiter was a little standoffish and adamant it was al dente , though there is a difference between undercooked and al dente which he soon realised. otherwise a nice place to visit

Everything is out of balance in this place. The wine list is a gem! Great wines at excelent prices!! Food is a good try on contemporary sea seafood. The problem is nothing is seasoned at all!! Al least the salt was on the table. Dessert was not on par with the food. Cheese cake was not good at all. Products... More

Myself and my partner booked a table for 9pm, we arrived at 8.55pm to be told the table would be 5 minutes, which turned out to be 25 minutes. The reviews kept me in the restaurant as during the wait we weren't offered drinks, a menu or an explanation. We then we had been seated, we had to keep grabbing... More

Dear Madam, Thank'you for your review on TA. I'm really sorry for your bad experience in our restaurant. I don't remember you and my staff isn't able to give me information about the problems with your table, first of all for the fact that your table was ready 25 minutes after the time you reserved it. I'm also really disappointed... More

If you like seafood then you need to try this restaurant. We started off with the seafood tartare which was mind blowing. It felt like the plates kept coming. Everything different, super fresh and beautifully presented. I had the lobster and pasta and almost passed out when I found half a lobster in my pasta... So good! My husband had... More

Four of us traveling in Italy visited this restaurant (next door to our apartment) in the Monti section of Rome. The cuisine was by far the most creative we had in Rome, beautifully prepared and presented in vivid, stunning designs. Among other things we had were the purple gnocchi with clams and truffles, ravioli, an excellent monkfish dish, a beef... More

We were lucky our receptionist (IQ Roma hotel) recommended this MODERN restaurant, both in decor and dishes. We had the scallops 3 ways for starters and a perfect lobster pasta (with a half lobster in it!). This was accompanied by a good bottle of Grilio.. perfect. Too bad we did not try their tiramisu as we loved to stop by... More

We found this lovely restaurant through our hotel's concierge. It is by far one of the best gourmet sea food restaurant we have ever visited. The octapus, the scalops, the tuna all are amazing!! Beautiful plates and great taste! Its not cheap, (we paid more than 65€ per person with two bottles of wine for four) but it totally worth... More

We chose the seafood platter to share for our main course and it was delicious. Everything was perfectly cooked and the Gavi wine that the waiter recommended complemented it brilliantly. The restaurant is modern and stylish with a great atmosphere and prices are very reasonable for this quality of food.
