Truly unique and wonderful dining. The truffle tasting was well done and no pressure to buy anything. The restaurant itself was superb as expected.

This restaurant was excellent...everything from the appetizers to the first and second plates were spectacular. The selection of wines was also unbeilievable...they have separate wine menus for red/white.

Loved this place. The staff was very helpful and attentive. It seemed all of the staff spoke great English. We tried the truffle tasting menu. WOW. Great wine list. We got a glass of Prosecco when we arrived and a split of Prosecco as a "parting gift". The décor had a very modern feel. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We (4 adults and 2 teenagers) arrived a bit late, but were still made very welcome and given a glass of Prosecco each to settle ourselves. Roma our waitress was very helpful explaining everything in english although there are english menus,... More

Absolute perfection! I made reservations online and let the staff know that my wife and I were on our honeymoon. I received an email confirmation back from them, along with an invitation to arrive an hour early for a truffle tasting at their truffle store. Considering my wife is a truffle addict this was a no brainer. We arrived at... More

Overall nice for a city like Rome. Not stars involved, therefore no high expectations. Nice environment and overall decent service. Extremely interesting wine list... Trio of beef tartare served with truffles oil, creme fraiche, mayonnaise mixed with something else... Quite ok. Paccheri pasta with porcini & scorzone (summer) truffle. The truffle oil simply covered everything... What a shame... Suckling pig... More
