Ad Hoc was recommended to us and we had a lovely evening there. You need to book in advance as a lot of people coming in were turned away. We had the truffle tasting with Prosecco, which was a nice way to start the evening, then we went to the restaurant, which is nice and cosy, and had a lovely... More

We tried booking online but the date we wanted was fully booked, and the manager offered us another date. The staff were charming and the set menus offered great value - the 10% discount on the online booking was shown on the bill without us asking. But... and this is a big but, the food and ambience weren't as good... More

This was a fantastic meal, on our last day in Rome. Wine recommendation was spot on, as you might expect from a place with bottles of wine all around you on the walls. Truffle dishes were delicision, staff very frendly and helpful.

We were in Rome for our first time and wanted an experience of food as well as history and culture. Ad Hoc delivered with its unique truffle tasting in the old refurbished wine cellar. We sipped champagne, tasted various truffle pairings and were sent to the restaurant with a taste of truffle tinted honey on our tongues. Wonderful experience.

I really can't fault this place, it was absolutely lovely. Great service, great food and compared to other places we visited in Rome it was fantastic value for the tasting menu. The wine pairing was just perfect, we left absolutely full and satisfied. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Rome, but remember to book ahead! Getting a table isn't... More

We had a fantastic dinner! It was the first time tasting truffles and we loved it! It was a magical blend of tastes, flavours and good wines. It's obvious that Ad Hoc involves a lot of passion so after our experience here, we're passionately in love with it !

We went to this restaurant by chance when we came to Italy three years ago. Three years later we were still dreaming about the food, the service and importantly the truffles. Amazing. This year we had the chance to go back and eat at Ad Hoc again and it was absolutely amazing. Exactly as we remembered it. The atmosphere is... More

I can only echo the many positive comments about Ad Hoc. We were in Rome for my wife's birthday and we had reservations at several terrific restaurants. Ad Hoc was at the top of our list and it was even better than we expected. It is conveniently located just off of the Piazza del Popolo, in a cozy, elegant space.... More

I had made a mistake when booking this restaurant online last year when in Rome with my husband and they had no availability. When back in Rome for one night on business, I was delighted to make a (correct!) reservation. It was worth waiting for! Due to a late flight arrival, I had to go straight from the airport and...

Didn't Expect to be in Rome again this year but when the opportunity arose to spend one night I knew I would have to book our favourite restaurant Ad Hoc once again. This was our fifth time and I am delighted to say it did not disappoint. We brought along four friends who also loved it. The staff are very... More
