I've been here with friends for dinner. Staff is very welcoming and well informed about dishes. I suggest to ask the blonde waitress for the best dish of the day. She is an asset. Great pasta (ask for Cacio e Pepe) and delicious cake "sbriciolata" made of mousseline cream, crusty puff pastry and chocolate. I'm Italian and I live in... More

Local to our hotel, this meal was fantastic! Best we had during our stay. Salted beef was amazing (I wish I could eat it now), and best carbonara we had. For 2 people a few starters and two pasta courses, with bottle of wine and water was €50 with service charge. Excellent value if you ask me.

Our hotel recommended trying this restaurant. It serves fish, meat, pizza, and pasta. The food was reasonable and fairly priced. By the time we finished our food to getting dessert took 20 min. After getting our bill, I waited for 20 min before our server returned and told me to go up front to pay with credit card. We were... More

Fish tartar and pasta (we had 2 different types) were great. Octopus salad as well. Tiramisu was not. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The second time we went our order was taken by a lady who looked like the owner of the place. We had some disagreements with her at first but all was fine at the end.

This lovely restaurant was near our hotel. The menu choice is fab and the service really good. The food we had fillet steaks was beautiful. We visited twice and really enjoyed it. The lady who served us was so, so nice. We were even given lemoncello at the end of our meal- a nice touch. If you are staying near... More

Try the Gnocchi. It's one of the most interesting non-cheese-drenched Gnocchis I've ever had. Not sure I can pinpoint what it was, but I can say it was deliciously different. There are very few good restaurants in the Termini area, unfortunately, but Babbo's filled the bill and is fairly reasonable, comparably. The people are friendly and speak English well enough....
