I am Italian and the food at Santa Cristina is like being in my grandmother's kitchen. The recipes are authentic at this family run Ristorante. This was my 5th visit and once again they amazed me. The restaurant is a bit hidden off Via Maggio near the Quirnale in an alley next to Hotel Bolivar and is on the right.

Best family-run restaurant I've ever been to in Italy or elsewhere. The Danish steak, I had with green pepper sauce, was excellent - though too big - I hated to leave some on my plate. Nice red house wine 750 ml for 9 euro. My companion had chicken slices with gorgonzola and milk sauce, also excellent and too much. We... More

A simple family run restaurant that serves astounding home cooked food with a large helping of charm. We visited on the strength of other reviews and ended up dining here both nights in Rome. Lovely people, very fair prices and a great menu. NB. save a little space for the home made dessert! Can't recommend highly enough.

Staff very friendly and helpful, nice setting, amazing house wine (1/2l 9€ if I remember correctly), and they had a kids chair for the little one. Bread and one mini pizza as starter, then baked aubergines and cheese and pepper pasta, two deserts. With drinks we paid 60€. Portions small, but quality just wow.

Ristorante Santa Cristina is a short walk from Piazza della Repubblica, the Quirinale etc., but tucked into a charming quiet side street that you'd likely not notice on a casual walk. As a result, it's quiet, frequented primarily by locals and not a bit 'touristy.' Service was professional and pleasant. Food Fantastic. We had steak -- described on the menu... More

Visited this wonderful family run restaurant on our first night in Rome. All cooked fresh and a nice relaxed atmosphere. It would be hard to choose my favourite course as the steak with green peppercorns was amazing as was the homemade creme brûlée. The house red wine was also of good quality. I will defiantly go back before I leave... More

We tried this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel staff. The staff were friendly and the food was good. We had the Gorgonzola chicken, bolognese, and eggplants. Everyone enjoyed their dishes but after trying them all I would say the eggplant was the best. We also ordered the homemade bread with olive oil which was tasty. We showed up... More
