Ristorante Alfredo Roma is quite simply the epitome of Roman dining. A cosy, unimposing restaurant in the centre of town with a warm and welcoming atmosphere greets you as you step in from the bustling Via Principe Amedeo. Inside a barely signposted red painted building, only found by a long awning covering street side tables, is a stone arched room surrounded by classical style sepia murals. A large, well stocked bar catches your eye as you enter, tempting you with a pre-dinner drink before moving on to the menu, a traditional Italian delight. Lasagne and bruschetta, so typical, is matched only by the staff for true Italian personality.

A great experience

We had a wonderful time. Lots of wonderful food and good service. It was not cheap but I think the value was in the whole experience. My daughter had the best steak ever.

We actually walked past this restaurant on the first afternoon in Rome while hunting our hotel. The guy working there (the owner I believe) was sitting outside and we asked him if he knew where our hotel was. He immediately directed us . And didn't at all try to lure us into his restaurant which was a change!! We thought... More

They charge far too much for what they offer and they won't take credit cards, so if you don't have 50 euros to throw away, avoid it.

Waiter was quite abrupt and rude to me asking "Do you want to eat?" in a short manner- I suspect it is because I was a solo diner. He was all smiles when a couple came to eat. But I can get by that if the food is decent. It was not, however. I ordered an alfredo pasta and fish... More

Alfredo fettuccine was prepared in front of you, but it had no sauce. Just butter and tons of grated cheese tossed in to coat and melt onto the pasta. The pasta itself, was delicious, fresh and tender. Their veggies in a bag were great.

A very famous restaurant in rome with a long list of famous clients, like president kenedy and merilyn monroe! The brand plate of the restaurant is spaghetti alfredo. I tried this one, which is very good but 18 euro just for spaghetti, butter and cheese is very expensive! We also pay 8 euro for a bottle of water! I think... More

This is a very belated review - my mom and I came here in August (It's now April) and I've been thinking about it ever since. But that speaks to how good it was (or how much of a procrastinator I am)! We went here because it was inbetween the train station and our hotel. The food was delicious -... More

Can definitely recommend the pasta and wine which were reasonable both in price and quality. The restaurant is convenient for the Termini and easily walkable from there. The deserts were a little disappointing and I suspected that they were not home made. The complimentary Limoncello was very well received! Would not hesitate to dine there again.

I chose Ristorante Alfredo to dinner because was staying in a nearby hostel. The waiter was very kind and helped me to choose the meal. My choice was red wine and spaghetti. When the food was being prepared, I realized that I didn't have enough money with me. I explained the situation to the owner. He was very kind and... More

The place is very nice and confortable, the service was fine and the food was very good (but not fantastic). The price is pretty salty.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
