Our craving for seafood led us to wonder the narrow streets of the Centro Storico, and we fell upon the chalkboard advertising Al Duello's daily specials positioned on an easel. We ventured in as the sole diners for half our meal, enjoying the attention and courtesy of the handsome young waiter. The seafood craving was satisfied with a succulent pasta... More

Our meal at Al Duello is one that we will always remember when we think of Rome. We were suggested this restaurant by our hotel concierge and he made a reservation for us. When we arrived we were quickly seated at a table close to the kitchen, which some may not prefer, but allowed us to enjoy the comings and... More

Food was really excellent (sea bass, pasta, beef), except the fish of the day which turned out to be expensive (it's priced by the weight and we thought we'd get 150-200g but it was 500g which turned into 40€) and not super tasty. Deserts were also really tasty. Service was good and quick. One of the best addresses we tried... More

Enjoyed a really great meal here. Nice intimate atmosphere with friendly but not overly attentive service. Wine list is very good. We had a Barolo at 55 euros and a starter and main course. Total bill was 109 euros. The dishes that we ate were of a great quality and the bread was also excellent. Certainly worth a try if... More

We made a reservation here after being told by an acquaintance that it was a "must" in Rome. I need to disagree with that, it was fine, but nothing all that special. It was midweek and pouring, and there were only three tables taken. But the fish we had was quite good and so was the pasta. The zucchini flowers... More

Very elegant place. The service was attentive and professional. The food was superb - the zucchini flowers for the appetizer and the filled sea bass for the main course were divine.
