Very nice staff, caring and smiling. Lots of food on the tasting menu. Nice wines to go with the set menu. Calm and nice atmosphere. Good food but not "top cuisine" and good value for the money.

I visited Ad Hoc 08/047/2014 with my wife for her 40th birthday after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. If it wasn't for Trip Advisor we would have missed this gem of a restaurant as it was not an obvious stop. The ambiance inside the restaurant was perfect. The staff were faultless and the food was fantastic. We both opted... More

Ad Hoc restaurant was near where we were staying in the Piazza del Popolo area and we came upon it by accident walking along Via di Ripetta. The menu was very tempting so we took a chance and asked if they had any room for two people. Luckily, there was one table left for two. It must be a very... More

We had a very fine 4 courses menu with wine recommendation to every course. The food was excellent and the atmosphere in the restaurant is beautiful. There are not a lot of tables so you have a very pleasant atmosphere. But therefore it is recommendable to make you reservation before you will visit the restaurant. What we can say, everbody...

We wanted to like Ad Hoc. We REALLY did. We spent 3 1/2 weeks in italy, eating everywhere from some michelin-starred culinary destinations to some remote, top-of-a-mountain mamma-run osterias. In three and a half weeks we were disappointed by only three meals. This meal, our last dinner in Rome, was one of them. Trip Advisor has rarely steered us wrong,... More

This was our first meal out in Rome, which we booked in advance after finding Ad Hoc on trip advisor. Everything was perfect, from the moment we walked in. The lighting and interior created a brilliant atmosphere for our romantic evening. The service was excellent and our waitress had good English. We had 3 amazing courses (plus 7 types of... More

Very good meal in this restaurant, with a cosy felted ambience. We have taken a Roman style cuisine tasting menu, and a Sea Food and Wine tasting menu, with wine (the discovery of Ramandolo Dario Coos white wine was an excellent surprise). So we have loved the cuisine, the ambience, the service, the fair price, and the bottle as gift... More

I have been there with my family last night. The food was very great, and the service was excellent, and also the atmosphere was very nice. I like to compliment to Daniela. She is very friendly to us. Thanks to make a wonderful night for us! Pond and Pun
