The place has a very romantic setting with a very cosy atmosphere. The food is great specially the truffles tasting menu. The service is amazing and the staff is friendly. The wine tasting is the food is also a great idea which gives u the opportunity to try many different wines while changing courses. A must try while in Roma!

Before beginning our meal, we began with a truffle tasting. We were given several truffle spreads on bread and invited to try each one. The white and black truffle were truly amazing! For our meal we had pasta stuffed with duck and drizzled in a white truffle sauce. This was delicious. My father had duck glazed with honey infused with... More

Extremely tasty, extremely generous restaurant that went out of its way to make our night very, very special. The communication for the reservation in advance was fantastic. Email back after reserving, confirming, planning, and a beautiful personalized followup email from the restaurant's manger one week after we left. We said it was a special dinner for us in advance, and... More

My husband and I wanted to experience food that wasn't just your average Italian food for tourist. We took advantage of the free truffle tasting at their tasting room before and loved our experience (and all the goodies we got!). We had a wonderful 3 hour dinner in a perfectly romantic and relaxing atmosphere. We chose to do the tasting... More

I'm not as much of a food snob as some of the other reviewers but i do enjoy good food and wine. This place delivered both of those. We had the tasting menu (Land) with wines and it was all delicious and served with a great explanation and a smile. I'd recommend this place even though it is on the... More

We had a lovely dinner at Ad Hoc. Food was great and so was the service. They didn't have any beer in stock which was the only disappointment.

Ad Hoc could have been a very nice dinner experience, but oddly regimented service, out of stock wines, and price points beyond what the food quality deserved made us regret our decision. Before I continue, let me say that the ravioli and sucking pork were delicious. The small dishes compliments of the chef were enjoyed and appreciated. Niceties out of... More
