Friendly staff and tasty food. They had truffles in and talked us through how this could be added to different dishes. A nice touch to bring out the actual fish to emphasise freshness. One course each with half a bottle of red set us back 50euros. We'd go again.

Very nice and friendly service! Even though we have many restrictions for my selection, they still serve us with the greatest patience. My husband and daughter love the beef with mushroom source very much. I like the fish. Good recommendation of red wine. All guests look very happy in the restaurant. Thanks to tripadvisor to help me to find this... More

Typical Italian food with real fresh and local products. The hostess was very friendly, something what we don't see very often in the south of Italy. Prices are reasonable because of the very fresh products. However, the main courses (pasta) are quite basic, just pasta as usual. To my opinion this place could do better if they had more of... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The service was very good. We had 2 pasta dishes, the veal and the house Trebbiano. The bill came to 53 Euro. It was a good dinner!

Nothing special here. Just your average Italian fare at a higher cost. There was nothing that we could say stood out here. I find it hard to understand how it is rated so highly

The restaurant Al Duello only 300 meters from Piazza Navaronein the center of Rome and not far from our temporary resident Hotel Raphael. Very positive service from the reservation call and continued during our visit to the restaurant - always a smile and great English. We had a three course meal. The different variations of bruschetta was excellent, but especially... More

After having read reviews on tripadvisor my fiance and I went to find this restaurant. We were so disappointed. We probably should have realised we'd made a mistake when there was not a single Italian person eating there. First of all the restaurant itself was very hot, despite there being air conditioning (which was turned off). Secondly I ordered a... More

Our hotel made our reservation for us but said they had never heard of this place however I read quite a few nice reviews online about it. It's cute and charming place. It's not located near anything very touristy although it appeared that the other diners were tourists. It's sort of in an unassuming location. We visited this restaurant in... More
