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...

I'm going to rate this restaurant with 4 stars although I concur with a lot of other reviews in that there are some shortcomings which the owner should find the motivation to address. I think the staff ( one chap doing everything, the owner sat outside chatting with a friend all evening) traded on the romantic feel and elegance of... More

Overall we had a very enjoyable evening. Its a small restaurant as others have remarked and we did book in advance although it seemed to be a quiet time as others simply turned up and were seated. We opted to sit inside as the pavement tables caught nearby road noise and people were wandering past you as they are "in... More

This is one of the most romantic restaurant i have ever go. The tastes were amazing and the service extremely good. The only small disadvantage was the price for 2 main courses one starter one desert and two glasses of white wine 104 euros. The environment is romantic and the light is only from the candles. Please if you have... More

We visited the library on 25th August for our 1st wedding anniversary, basing our visit from previous trip advisor reviews. Wow! What a romantic evening. The restaurant is tucked away along a small cobbled street. The internal ambiance they have created is perfect, with everything being lit by candlelight. There are only about 5 tables inside the restaurant which gives... More

I think there were only 5 or 6 tables in the restaurant. Our taxi driver had a hard time finding the alley for this place. Our meal was excellent. The wine our waiter picked was perfect. He tasted the wine first and decided that bottle was corked, so he opened another for us (and this was a 100 euro bottle).... More

We went to The Library restaurant on our last night in Rome and thought it was exceptional. As others have said the restaurant is a very romantic setting and I also found it relaxing. The food was excellent and we enjoyed that it wasn't rushed out to us and that we had time between courses to enjoy the wine and... More

We booked a table here for New Years Eve. It was truly marvellous, the service was attentive and friendly. The food was impeccable, having taken into consideration my tricky dietary requirements. In fact there was so much fantastic quality food, that we couldn't finish. The restaurant is small, romantic and ideal for couples. I recommend booking as far in advance... More
