This is a cosy restaurant on what was a rather cool evening in Rome. We had the tasting menu which turn out to be a good choice. The recommended wine was also very good. The service was efficient, without being rushed. There was a good atmosphere, on a Wednesday evening. I would like to go on a summers night.

Friendly faces, with a open atmosphere. Food was great and willing to accommodate starts from the main meal section. Would come back again

The setting for Clemente is wonderful, in a romantic square surrounded by wonderful architecture...that is about the best thing you can say about this restaurant. The staff were rude and aloof, not at all interested in talking us through the menu or making recommendations, a very poor quality service. The food is very expensive and of poor to average quality,... More

I recently had a business meal at Clemente, a place I'd been half a dozen time before. The food is never disappointing, although the menu does not change often. The wine list is acceptable, the service is a bit old school, and especially in the warmer months geared towards tourists. In any case my guests were happy with the dinner... More

Food was good, even very good, as was service and wine. But: - plates are definitely overpriced, when compared to other good restaurants in the very near streets. - this unadvertised 10% service thing is typically the kind of bad surprise that upsets me. - I had this strange feeling that we'd better not stay too long, just like if...

Ok, this was not an inexpensive meal, but the pastas were excellent, the wine list reasonable and the service was very good. Unlike other reviewers we were not rushed, the waiters were helpful and not pushy. I was surprised to see the 10% charge as that was new to us. The location across from a church was lovely and great... More

Generally the reviews for this classic Roman restaurant are good, some reviewers have commented on the staff in a negative manner. This was not our experience - I will return every time I go to Roma. We ate at Clemente last Wednesday. When we arrived (2 adults, 9 and 13 yo) the outside area was fully booked (fortunately I had... More

We ate at Clemente the second night we were in Rome, and loved it. We ate outside on a square, and the food and service were great. When we returned to Rome a week later with our friends, we returned twice and had great experiences both times.

So many restaurants in Rome offer the same pasta/pizza. This restaurant is more expensive, but really worth it. The staff are great, the location is brilliant and the food some of the best I have ever tasted. The wine list also offers a better selection than most of the other restaurants.
