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.

Fantastic staff and waiters

Went there with my partner for dinner, the waiters were fantastic and they had a awesome sense of humour and made us feel very welcome. The food was tasty and well priced. Have to say that was the best service we have had in Italy so far after 3 days :)

The food is overpriced even by Rome standards.Also the food we tried not very good.Go down stairs to the toilets and you are in for a big shock. They are ancient and not clean.I think this restaurant is living on its past reputation. These are my own peronnel views.

In the heart of Rome is this restaurant. It has delicious pasta and the service is exceptional. You need to try their fettuccine Alfredo!

This restaurant is the birthplace of fettuccine Alfredo and you can tell by the Alfredo they serve. The rest of the food is a little under par. But as is everywhere else in Rome, the service and wine is great. Sitting in the middle of some old buildings it really gives the movie style Italian effect, makes it a very... More

Called in for lunch just as we arrived in Rome. Was quiet, not many customers. Looked at the menu was a standard menu €10 menu with pastas etc on, couldn't see a bolognese or ragu though. Food came quickly, obviously microwaved lasagne, very dry and burnt on top no sauce at all, no salad or bread to accompany it. Staff... More

There are more restaurants in Rome with the name Alfredo, this one is the one in P di Santa Maria in Trastevere, the old quarter in Rome where the real romans live :-) Unfortunately the quarter has been a little too "touristique" if you know what I mean, but it's still worth a visit and the menu at Alfredo is...

We decided on this restaurant because we wanted to sit outdoors and the recommended reastaurant a couple of doors down only had seating inside. Oh, how I regret that decision. My meal looked and tasted like a microwaved supermarket pizza with a piece of carrot on top. The house wine was weak, sharp and undrinkable. When we had finished our... More

Wonderful friendly, attentive staff and the Alfredo was everything I imagined. Light thin homemade noodles tossed with butter and Parmesan right at table side. I recommend sharing one serving, it was more than enough for the two of us, I don't see how anyone could eat the entire serving by themselves. Creme Brûlée was as good as any I have... More

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

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.
