If you are looking for an authentic Italian food experience in the Colosseo district of Rome, then this is the place for you. A good range of freshly prepared menu options at reasonable prices (mid-range compared to others). Like us, many others were arriving, guide book in hand, after reading about this place. All of our food was delicious. Friendly... More

Good restaurant. Good food, service and atmosphere. The price was a little high when compared to other equally good restaurants I've been to.

We got lost walking there, but once we found it, we were enthralled with specials of the day that we ordered! Homemade pasta! The stuffed calamari was unbelievable ! The flavors played with our tastebuds! You will be sorry if you miss it! Mangia!

Our driver took us here and told us we were in for a treat. He was not kidding. The food was exceptional. In fact, it was the best lunch I had on my trip to Italy. Do not miss the meat and cheese plate "slow food". You will not be disappointed. The restaurant is not overly fancy, old chairs and... More

If you are looking for a truly "Italian" eating experience then Il Bocconcino is the place to go. Excellent food from appetizer to dessert and very friendly service. It is close to the Colosseum just off the via Claudia and easy to find. We had our best meal during our visit to Rome in this small and understated restaurant.
