The food was amazing, everything fresh and handmade (the pasta too), and always including season vegetables. The waiter was extremely charming and helpful in his recommendations. The value-price is extremely good. I don't even have a minimum regret. Perfect evening.

We spent 10 days in Rome and this was absolutely one of the best meals we had. We did not have a reservation, but thankfully they were able to take us in. We did show up on the early side (7:30 for dinner is early in Italy!) so that probably helped. I think if you do plan on going here,... More

I will admit...we went here because of the Anthony Bourdain episode. We headed over at lunch and arrived when they opened. Get there early because even if they have seats, they may still turn people away (we saw that happen to several people). We were seated in the "upstairs" area which I think is where they put the Americans. Our... More

I don't understand some of the recent reviews on this restaurant. We went on the night of the Epifania, which is a public holiday in Italy, and enjoyed EVERY second of it. Of course you will need to book, but it's because it's popular not because it's pretentious. It's also NOT true that locals don't eat here anymore after Bourdain's... More

Of course I had to try this restaurant after seeing it on Anthony Bourdain's show in Rome. We went on a Monday night (closed), so had to go back later in the week. We had our aThanksgiving day lunch there. Food was very good. I had the cacio e pepe at several locations and this one was the best. The... More

Best Cacio e Pepe I've ever had! The artichokes (a la judia) were also great. Excellent service. Very authentic place; full of locals.

While I wait in a near restaurant, I take my time to write a critic about the awful service of Roma Sparita. I knew before hand that a reservation was needed (it must be the unique restaurant in the whole Rome with such pretension) but its staff showed inexistent interest and didn't intended to help at all. Not even when... More

We walked from the Vatican to have a late lunch. We arrived at 2:30 and thy were closing. Thanks tripadvisor for screwing up our day, which was planned around having lunch here. Be advised they close from 2:30 to 7:30. Been looking forward to this place for months, so bummed.

At the Piazza Santa Cecilia,you will find this traditional small restaurant in Roma.Food is great,making a classic place to go back and eat the superb specialty of the restaurant,tagliolini cacio e pepe,but also other high quality delicious roman dishes.Since it is a small restaurant it is advisable to reserve and check if the restaurant is open during low season.
