We just had the best meal in Rome! The seafood was incredible...the kids and I are still talking about the octopus salad and my seafood soup was perfect with the daily fresh-caught fish. In a city where there is a lot of pasta, pizza and grilled vegetables, this was refreshingly different. It was a little bit pricey, but well worth... More

A lot of the reviews here seem to me to be accurate from my recent experience in mid-July. The location is great and the food, from our dining experience really was quite good being well cooked and nicely presented. However, the waiting staff really didn't listen to what we wanted (1 starter with some parma ham on the side) and... More

Had supper here last night with my husband and friend. Stefano the maître de was fabulous and an informative sommelier. The service was attentive, food delicious, ambiance good. The restaurant is set in a small pretty piazza and has a nice patio.

Our family of five-two adults and three teens had a wonderful meal here. We had fresh seafood of the chef's choice for our first course which included oysters, prawns, squid, octopus salad and smoked tuna, swordfish and salmon. Then, we had cooked, shelled lobster and crab, and prawns served over wilted arugula. Lastly, we each had a different dessert. All... More

The Osteria looked very nice and inviting and as it was a bit away from the main tourist spot we decided to have our dinner there. We ended up paying a bill of EUR 195 for two which included a fish fillet recommended by the Head Waiter for two (for EUR 76 which we only discovered when asking for the... More

We didn't actually read the reviews before going here and went on the advice of our hotel. It is interesting to read them now and I can see both sides on this one: It is very pricy here, the Maitre d' does make a lot of recommendations, and the portion size on a couple of the dishes were on the...

The menu at the restaurant seems nice and while I have seen several good reviews... We did not enjoy ourselves when dinning here. The Maitre d was over bearing and not typical of what we experienced at other restaurants in the neighborhood. He was always pushing the most expensive dishes and wines. When the food came to our table... it... More

I consider myself a seasoned traveler and know not to take the recommendation of my hotel. Unfortunately being hungry and new into Rome, we did and it was a mistake. We got overcharged and duped into ordering dishes that we didn't realize we had. For example, we clearly ordered only ONE antipasti dish, at 18e for asparagus, that was already... More

This is a delightful restaurant with an excellent menu but the Maitre d' spoils the experience! The goal of this Maitre d' is obviously to see how much money he can extract from the pockets of the patrons (especially the tourists). When it is time to order, the Maitre d' will try to push the $100 bottle of wine when... More

We were walking back to our hotel and liked the look of this place in a lovely quiet Piazza. It was my 56nd birthday so although it wasn't the cheapest palce we'd seen my wife said she'd treat me - so in we went. The Angus Carpaccio was fantastic - and the evening provided just a perfect Italian dining experience.... More
