My boyfriend took me there for my birthday as a surprise. At first I was a little nervous dipping down a little side road however once you walk into the place you are stunned. The atmosphere is perfect , soft candle lit and beautifully ornate tables and bookshelf's. We sat down and we were at once greeted and given cute... More

My darling love, John, had made dinner reservations at the Library weeks in advance. So, when the day arrived, I was chagrined to find that I was just too sick to go and enjoy a meal. He called and immediately got reservations the next night (this was not a weekend) and a 'hope she feels better' from the owner. I'm... More

Well that all depends. If you're willing to pay twice as much for twice as big servings that are twice as good as most other restaurants, then yes it's worth twice the price. If you want service and ambiance that's far more than twice as good as other restaurants as well, then it's worth so much more. This is a... More

My partner booked this before we went to Rome (must pre book) it was just perfect, Dana was warm, informative and helpful, this restaurant only has 6 tables and can only seat 12 people, if your a romantic it's a must you won't be disappointed.

This small place is tucked in a narrow street near Piazza Navona. If you're looking for that perfect hole in the wall, this is it. The place is very tastefully done and elegant. The perfect place for a romantic meal. The prices are high, but if you are looking for a memorable splurge, you've found it. The owner, Dana has... More

PRO'S: Amazing place (the inside is a true, romantic, unique beauty), with professional, cheerful and friendly staff. CON'S: The food was average. But if you take into account its price, then let me say it's not even worth one third of what it cost. That was pretty upsetting to me and my wife. The second con is that the service... More

We found this delightful restaurant on this very site. Idyllic theme, set away from the bustling streets just a stones throw from the River Tiber. We had an early booking so we had the whole place to ourselves and this added to the atmosphere. Quiet, unobtrusive service and a wine list to die for. My girlfriend and I were treated... More
