The food was ok, nothing extraordinary, but our wine came AFTER the food. What? They also seemed annoyed by our very well-behaved and happy children, just for being there. Anyways, the WORST PART was that after my family and I each used the bathroom (we drank lots of wine-we all needed to pee!) we left thinking all was well only... More

Charm, check. Good Service, check. Great food, check check. On a TripAdvisor recommendation, we ventured out to Santa Cristina. It is tucked down an alley, across from the Hotel Bolivar. We were instantly captivated by the welcoming staff and down-home charm. We started with the grilled artichokes, which were in season and we were not disappointed They had a great... More

This is a family run restaurant and very friendly. We could not believe that it was so close to our hotel. As we entered the restaurant, I read the sign to my wife that stated ' mind the step'. I then FELL into the restaurant!! so beware! The food was fantastic and we felt so welcomed and relaxed. Highly recommended.

All of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I personally ate steak and it may have been the best steak I've had! Medium is rare but I loved every bit of it. We thought we had over ordered but the food was too good to leave so we finished the lot. Next time I'm in Rome I will certainly book a... More

Restaurant was a little hard to find but totally worth the visit! We started off with the ham and mozzarella and fried parmesan pizza.. That was incredibly good. For our first course I had the Angolotti Cacio e Pepe which was a stuffed pasta with some cream sauce. My wife had the Dellizia Santa Cristina which is a pasta with... More

First off, we loved Teo, the spaniel who greeted us at the door. The whole family was a delight, with the parents working the kitchen, offspring out front and family pet at the door. From the spectacular wine list, to the beetroot and gorgonzola risotto, to the salt cooked sea bass, to the amazing beef filet with honey and peppercorn... More
