What a beautiful little restaurant, such a change from the busy, often loud and bright restaurants of Rome. So so cozy, perfect music, perfect ambience to have a couples night out. Besides the decor, the service was amazing, the fellow who served us was so great and attentive. The food was to die for, loved everything! Great experience, will recommend... More

A little pricy but worth it for a treat. This boutique restaurant is a real find - although recommended by our concierge which is always a great validation. Only 5 tables available with one very lovely and attentive waitress who is on hand but never intrusive. If you're here to eat you're here all night with no pressure to eat... More

My husband and I were travelling with friends over Christmas and had dinner here Friday night. We had the restaurant to ourselves. It was cozy, no more than 7 tables, and the waitress was so sweet and helpful. There was so much on the menu that we wanted and she provided valuable recommendations. We started with the meat/cheese platter (amazing... More

The Library Romantic is a truly magical place to escape the busy pace of central Rome. This charming little restaurant is hidden away down a cozy cobblestone alley. Beautiful decor bathed in soft candlelight sets the mood for an evening not to be forgotten. The food was incredible. At the Library, the chef has not chosen to do all the... More

We had a wonderful evening in the restaurant. The service was one of the best we ever had and the food was just amazing. The waiters make you feel like only guest in restaurant, very nice and friendly. Restaurant is excellent for couples, very romantic, with hand written menues, candles and only few quiet tables for two. We got engaged... More

This restaurant seems to be the go to place for couples in Rome. Its definitely pretty and cosy if you get a table inside. If you're sitting outside, the weather is great but it feels slightly pedestrian. We had a picture of an old woman staring at us which we ofcourse joked about. We were served 2 generous glasses of...
