Go go go go!!! The best meal we had in Italy after many very excellent meals and one of my top 10 meals ever. A very good value if you enjoy well-prepared food (you'd pay a LOT more elsewhere). Life-altering gnocchi with truffles and clams, delicious seared tuna, excellent 18 euro bottle of wine recommended by incredibly nice waiter (I... More

The restaurant was as good as others have said. Food was fantastic and a welcome change from pizza and pasta (not that there's anything wrong with lots of both!). Prices are very reasonable for the type of restaurant. Great service. Highly recommended. And it's open in August!

I can't rate this restaurant highly enough! The food was incredible, the service was attentive and friendly and the restaurant itself was charming! Yes it was the most expensive meal we've had in Rome but my gosh was it worth every penny. Perfectly cooked scallops for starter, one of the best steaks I've ever had and it was about 15oz!... More

Great selection of lovely, incredibly fresh seafood. We had scallops and parmagiana for starters, lobster pasta (with a huge half lobster), gnocchi with truffles and clams, a dessert, coffee and a bottle of prosecco for exactly €100. It felt like really good value, food was lovely and great quality, service was good and overall very satisfied.

We had four different meals and all were great - perhaps the best restaurant we found during our Italy vacation. The shrimp and scallop appetizers were perfect, too! The staff was very friendly and the service was flawless!

Duck breast, scallops and tiramisu - the food was great, and the friendly staff gave good wine advices. After this great food experience we left the restaurant both full and very happy. We will be back.

This is on a side street and our taxi driver couldn't find it. We ended up walking about four blocks but it was worth it. It's a 'hole in the wall' place or, more accurately, a hole under the sidewalk. The food was fantastic, both preparation and presentation. The wine list was extensive and very appropriate for the food. The... More

I found this place looking at reviews - it was the closest from the hotel. I cannot say it is very expansive, though in other places near hotel I spend less, but the meals were very different. First of all it is not home cuisine as in other places. This is a real work of culinary artist. I tasted shrimps... More

We enjoyed our first meal so much that we broke or rule of not dining in the same place twice whilst visiting Italy for a month in May. The decor is stylish and there are a few seperate rooms (gold, red and black & white) which gives a feeling of intimacy. Stefano is a charming host who speaks English. We... More
