Good food but a bit pricey probable due to its location, the risotto was creamy with good amount of seafood, the curry shrimp though claimed prepared from frozen prawn did taste fresh, worth a try if you want something close to St Peter Square.

Fellow travelers we met in Tuscany told us this was a "must go to" spot. They in turn had been sent by friends who had been there. They were absolutely correct...we let Stepphano choose our meal and it was the best we had in Rome. The staff was professional, friendly and the food was amazing. The price was reasonable and...

My hubby and I were so impressed with the experience we had at Caffe Universale, that we went there a second time on our last night in Rome, as we wanted a guaranteed good last dinner experience. We made a reservation for dinner on our 1st night in Rome, based on Tripadvisor reviews. When we 1st walked up to the... More

Fancied a change to the routine Italian menu offered by the majority of restaurants and fell across this one. Nice modern clean design inside, friendly and helpful staff with lovely food. Service is excellent. You can either select from the main menu or go for one of their four course meals. This place is well worth a visit

My husband and I just returned from a fabulous trip to Rome, and one of the highlights was dinner at Caffe Universale. From the central location to the special touches, like a glass of prosecco when we sat down and Sicilian sweet wine to finish our meal, this was a wonderful dinner. I have celiac and therefore I try to... More

This is my oldest hang out for long drawn out conversations over coffee and wine. The service is top notch and the coffee is both Haitian and Indian. Very nice pastries available. Short but good wine selection. Closed on Sunday's but open till about 2 am most days of the week. Very chic atmosphere. Very clean restrooms with interesting design... More

I'm not usually lucky enough to have a top-rated restaurant be so close to where I was staying in Rome, but this time, I hit the jackpot. My husband and I had a late dinner, so we were able to be seated immediately. Our wait staff was so nice and so helpful. We had the eggplant parmesan (not breaded!), the... More
