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.

not like US alfredo fettuccine

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 a hotel close by, we found Ristorante Alfredo by walking up and down nearby streets looking for a place to eat. We walked down stairs, just below street level, to a nice atmosphere of a typical Italian ristorante. I asked for Prosecco to start the meal, it was on the house. We order some pruciutto for an appetizer... More

This place was near our hotel, I don't even know how to describe what's wrong with the place without being annoyed that it was our first taste of food in Rome. From outside it looks 'ok' but once you enter and get taken down the dingy steps it just gets worse and worse. The music was bizarre, the chairs worn,... More

Very friendly service, complimentary drinks but food (pizza) was undercooked. Choice of music was also not typical for a restaurant. Price surprisingly low but let down by quality of cooking.

Concierge had recommended this restaurant to us. My husband and I were looking forward to go there to dine on the "fettuccine alfredo" , unfortunately, it wasn't anything we expected at all. It was salty and small portions , yet it was expensive. . The interior of the restaurant was nice and the staff courteous. In my opinion this was... More

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.
