This is a complete locals place, hidden off of the beaten course we only found this as we met some Italian friends. The food was sensational especially the carbonara and cacio e pepe. The food was so simple but cooked to perfection. The chef came out and spoke to the table and I got the feeling this is a restaurant... More

We ate at this restaurant a couple of years ago and because it was so good, we decided to eat here, again, on this trip. The food was just as good as we remembered, but the service was lacking this time. Have your hotel make the reservation. I emailed this restaurant three times prior to our trip with no response....

Best dinner we had in Rome during our five-day-stay. Traditional Roman dishes! Delicious pasta! A family-run restaurant, with the father in the kitchen and the two sons in the restaurant that was filled with locals. Very friendly service, we had a nice talk with one of the sons. You may have to search a while but it's worth that. Prices... More

We were given this restaurant from the front desk staff at our hotel. He stated "This is where I go to eat". This place was just plain great. It's down a side street and away from the hustle and bustle of Rome. It's a family run with the father in the kitchen, his sons working the front of the house... More

We happened to stumble into this restaurant as we were looking for a dinner option on our first night in Rome. What enticed us inside was that the place was quite simple, even ascetic in décor and the quests of the restaurant seemed to mostly consist of locals, not Italian tourists but actual Romans (yeah, how do you really tell...

So we decided to book a number of our meals in Rome before we left Canada. Trattoria Lilli was the toughest of the bunch (we were in Rome for a week). I tried emailing them twice. No answer. BTW my emails were in Italian. The I tried FB messaging them from their FB page. Success - a reply was received... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a gentleman on the train who frequented it. We found it very popular and booked in advance. It was well priced and the food was great. We can only ever fit in one course, and this did not disappoint. Desert was delightful, but not sure if the chocolate cake was made on site?... More
