However the meal was disappointing as the fried potatoes that we had ordered were lukewarm and there was a lack of atmosphere. Would not recommend as... More

Servant seemed to be lost between tables and ordered meals. Also, pasta were not cooked enough. We almost left the restaurant but it was late and we were hungry (and... More

Just arrived late into Rome and was located right near our hotel. We walked on in and from the start we were welcomed and made feel at home. Deborah the host was exceptional and good to practice our Italian with.. In all the place had a homely feel with authentic Italian food. A must if staying near the station.

Invited in by the host who, having heard how my mum's wallet had been stolen on the bus, offered us a free drink. The host also let me use the restaurant's phone to make a call. He was very sympathetic. Regarding the food, we had the set menu for 15 euros. The amatriciana pasta was nice, the meat was testy... More

My wife and I ate three evenings at Gemma Alla Lupa and loved every minute. The meals were great, the staff friendly and courteous and the unexpected "entertainment," the guitar playing singer, was simply wonderful. It is a family restaurant with good food and good service. I can't explain the bad reviews posted on this site, I can only say... More
