We found this gem by coincidence and were thrilled about our eating experience. At first sight it seems a usual noisy Roman osteria. But the cooking that happens here is way different and much more creative than at any other osteria in this city. They definitely know what they are doing. Just to study the menu was exciting because the... More

We spent a long time researching restaurants to go to in Rome and are SO glad we chose here. The food, the wine and the service were OUTSTANDING! The degustation blew us away…the egg yolk ravioli was to die for, the cuttlefish, the duck…everything was amazing. We got there late in the evening but the staff were so accommodating and... More

With only a couple of days in Rome I did extensive research to choose 2 restaurants. This was one and we were very pleasantly surprised. The menu is limited but beautifully done. There is a lot of preparation and fine cooking going on to produce food like this. Not all the flavours work perfectly but that is a very picky... More

Excellent local place right on the corner from where we had an apartment. The chefs' welcome and the starter duck were outstanding. As always, the main disappointed a bit, but we may go back for their tasting menu before we leave

We stayed in the Trastevere for a few nights while in Rome and ended up here on the second night. While I did thoroughly enjoy the restaurant for the first night... not sure I would have ventured elsewhere if we ended up here on the first night. Their menu is limited but great. Highly recommend. I might even swing by... More

We were given a menu in English which was badly translated but after receiving the Italian menu ordered and enjoyed an amazing, innovative meal - the best we have had in the week we have been here. Very creative, outstanding service, this is a find.

I walked into a beautifully presented Restaurant, with the staff being nothing short of wonderful and accommodating! I unfortunately suffer from Celiacs (gluten intolerant) and this makes dining in Italy extremely difficult to say the least. As an individual who loves pasta however can only eat gluten free varieties, I was thrilled when this option was offered to me! Gluten... More

We stumbled on this restaurant on a hot evening, and gratefully took an outside table. The staff were welcoming and helpful, despite our bedraggled appearance. The menu is very interesting, and I ordered something I never do - scallops - which were delicious and cooked with veal quite unlike anything I've seen. All our food was beautifully served and delicious.... More

At Fernanda one definitely eats well and is exposed to a variety of sense experiences which definitely leave a memorable impression not just on the palate. The menu is very well thought out, the wine list excellent and the dishes superb in terms of flavour combinations and presentation. Although not cheap I certainly don't consider this place expensive given the... More

Me and my husband arrived at this hotel without the reservation based on reading some reviews...and I must say we were not at all disappointed. The owner was very accomodating and did let us know that he was expecting the guests at a certain time and he can offer us place if we complete our dinner by that time. Well... More
