This place does try to give its guests extra care and special offering. It is quite a small indoor space with a design that is hard to specify. It isn't traditional nor modern. A special care is given to the cutlery, the table setting and plating of dishes. The service is very good and the waiter was extremely knowledgable of... More

We booked a table at Ad Hoc based on a recommendation from a friend. We booked a table via email and in doing so received a 10% discount on our bill. We were also invited to a complementary truffle tasting before hand which we were intrigued about. I would definitely recommend going to the truffle tasting, it was interesting, delicious... More

Best restaurant i've bin in Italy. Great food, great wines and lovely atmosphere. The best tiramisu ever. After we got home we got a email including the cookbook from the restaurant, for us a very nice gift. We use the book very often to cook for special moments alone or with friends or family. Thank you very much for the... More

We found this restuarant through Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed! Be aware that the location in the tripadvisor app is wrong (as of ultimo August 2014) but the adress given is correct. We would recommend anyone to give this a try!.

A little hidden gem off Piazza Del Popolo that serves excellent Italina dishes with a twist. the winelist is great. Our waitress was great but another waiter seemd to be in a bad mood that day. Thankfully it didndt affect the atmosphere and our tatsebuds.

Very nice place, good for a romantic, dressed up dinner, very deep wine list and they are pretty knowledgeable about it. They specialize in truffles and if you like them, it's a must visit.

I am an American living in Rome for the summer. This was 100% the culinary highlight of my entire 3 months here. Each dish was so satisfying and the truffles are SO good! They have a truffle room where they sell truffle products and we got a free tasting before dinner started and they even gave me a free truffle... More

Just after I proposed to my girlfriend (whom said yes :D) we had reservations at Ad Hoc in the hope we could conclude the night in a special way. We absolutely had a great time at Ad-Hoc and enjoyed the great food they had to offer. We were there from around 19:00 o'clock until 22:30! Certainly not because the service... More
