We went to Pulcino Ballerino for a celebratory lunch after my partner's thesis presentation at the nearby La Sapienza University. We were looking for a good restaurant with a designated space for our 20-25 strong group of family and friends. This one appeared to be somewhat off the beaten track when it comes to the menu so we decided to... More

We had dinner in this place a few days ago. Food was quite good at a reasonable price, the service was excellent (although we have not been in a hurry). We really liked the quiet atmosphere, ideal for spending a nice evening without the noise and the crowds. We would come back.

I went twice this past week, once with my husband and then, against my better judgment, with close friends for a holiday outing. Dinner with my husband was a huge disappointment,... More

Off the usual tourist beaten track, Il Pulcino Ballerino is one of the better restaurants in San Lorenzo. I've eaten here several times over the years, and although the prices (especially of the secondi-meat- dishes) have gotten a bit high, I will keep coming back. Interesting dishes (I think the chefs are a mixture of Italian and Arab), and very... More
