Perfect Saturday lunch with my darling at Ad Hoc Restaurant. Menu with variety of Italian food. It was really attractive, I felt like I can not choose my food. Food presentation was lovely and unique. The design and decor were also classic and great. I love wine collection corner. Awesome!!!!

We reserved a place three weeks before coming to Rome based on all the good reviews and we were very disappointed. After three days of good Italian food, AD-Hoc seemed like a non-personal, formula restaurant. Although we reserved a place long time before they seated us in a narrow corridor where the waiters brushed our backs every time they passed.... More

We spent our last dinner in Rome at the Ad Hoc Restaurant. The first impression was great. We got impressed by the interior design. It looks amazing with all these wine bottles. We decided to take the food and wine tasting menus and we both expected more. The food was okay, but we definitely expected more. Maybe we have been... More

Had a fabulous meal here last night to celebrate my husband's birthday. Food was fantastic, atmosphere great and the staff really looked after us well. I don't think any of the photos on the web site do the place or the food justice. Lovely!!!

One of our favorite meals while in Rome. Great selection and execution of dishes (and were very accommodating of Celiac with gluten free pasta). Truffle courses were excellent and the suggested wine pairings were spot on. The staff was most helpful and genuine. Would certainly go back for another meal.

I booked this restaurant online months prior to our arrival in Rome as a special treat for our 4 night stay. The service is brilliant. We received an email the day prior inviting us to a truffle tasting prior to our dinner, just around the corner from the restaurant which was lovely. We sampled about 8 different types of truffle...

We specifically went to this place after reading all the wonderful reviews here. It started out wonderfully with a truffle tasting in a private room with sparking wine. Unfortunately, what started out as an experience ended with us cutting off the meal early. We are a party of four and were the third table seated at our 6:30 reservation. We... More
