Great service, great atmosphere and great food. We ordered the truffle tasting menu with wine, which was reasonably priced at €120. The complimentary truffle and prosecco tasting was a wonderful little appetizer. I have never had so much truffle in one sitting before, it was great to see (and taste) all the different ways the different truffles can be utilized... More

The beauty of Italian food is it's simplicity, isn't it? The food here is prepared quite complicate and special and some of the offerings just stumble upon this self fabricated challenge. A pitty because Location is nice and the staff is very friendly, not to talk about the wine selection, which is a blast. At the end? Go there or... More

We went to this restaurant because of the reviews and we love truffles. So we couldn't resist the truffle tasting menu with wine pairings. It was quite expensive at 120 Euros per person, but it was worth it! Our meal was paced so nicely that we really had time to savour each dish. The presentation of the food was wonderful... More

Bad service, literally had to flag down the waiter multiple times to get another glass of wine. Serving champagne in a wine glass is also odd for such a "nice restaurant". My fiancé and I both ordered the 5 course degestution. By the time we got to the 3rd course I asked for the check. I didn't want to waste... More

We just loved our brilliant experience at Ad Hoc. I would recommend you begin with the truffle and Prosecco tasting prior to your meal which is great fun. Then we chose tasting menus with wine pairings and both the food and wines were fabulous. Attentive, relaxed and friendly service. One of my most enjoyable meals ever! I would love to... More

Came here in July 2014 as a couple. We made a reservation and got to sample their truffle products before dinner. Ordered tasting menu Rome, and tasting menu Meat, with the wine pairing. Everything was superb, except for the Rome dessert, which was too sweet. Overall, very good value proposition and was our favorite meal in Rome. Good atmosphere and... More
