Our host recommended La Matriciana, so we went there. Out of six dishes, only the tripes where good. Both pasta dishes were definitively too salty, one of them not cooked enough (we like the pasta "al dente"). The eggplant gratin was abysmal. The eggplant slices had been deep fried to allow them to soak all the frying oil before being... More

We enjoyed the food and the service at this restaurant. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. Would recommend for an authentic Italian food experience.

Visited with my husband while on our honeymoon. This classy restaurant was only round the corner from our hotel and we chose to visit after seeing other reviews on trip advisor. Food was wonderful, service was great. Friendly and busy. Not a seat left in the place 90mins after opening.

I was twice at this restaurant The food is delicious! The price is excellent for the quality of the products they offer! It's better to make a reservations or try to arrive early. It's packed with locals after 8:00 pm

Lovely 1930's decor and fascinating kitchenalia. Proper tablecloths and napkins, excellent service, lovely food, good house wine, a little more upmarket being right opposite the opera house. Pannacotta and parma ham to die for. Possibly slightly overlit but all in keeping with the era. Would suggest reserving a table. Supper for 5 was €200 but that was 3 courses each... More

This restaurant has been our favorite for years. We went once 7 years ago on the advice of our travel agency and fell in love with it. Our waiter left us with a long lasting impression of excellent service and excellent food. We returned this last year and immediately booked a reservation to return. The waiter we had 7 years...

This is the most favored of restaurants by Romans. It is just wonderful to return again and again. Rome affords a traveler the ability to revisit over the years as some eatery are ever there.

It's a family restaurant, it seems. Few tables, got busy in less than half hour. Waiters are amable and food is excellent. Definitely worth it.
