I recommend this restaurant. The maître d' speaks perfect English and explained the menu well. He recommended a good wine. The food varied from very good to excellent. I recommend the octopus. It was superb.

Sensus is a charming restaurant on a small side street a few steps from Piazza Farnese. We went for the crudo platter but everything was wonderful and artistically presented. The crudo platter for two was served with an assortment of dipping sauces and included gigantic oysters. We finished the home-made rolls because they were so delicious, so they brought us... More

A truly wonderful experience with very personal service from Carlos the owner. Food was fantastic, atmosphere quiet but relaxed and enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble including Carlos and Marta taking us to a Rome Piano bar courtesy of their Fiat 500 after the restaurant closed in the wee small hours. Above and beyond by any standard! A great evening... More

Absolutely love the place, in a tinny street off Campo del Fiori. Sensus is a smart place that services artfully presented dishes made from fresh high quality ingredients. The service is provided by the owner who is very nice and attentive to all your needs, furthermore, he likes to talk about food and wine. As a starter we shared the... More

Sensus is like most classic non-tourist restaurant in that it does not open until 7:30PM. As noted by others, it's close to Campo de Fiori. Simply put-fabulous service and food. Best meal of the week. Not typical tourist food. Excellent grilled octopus with a hint of lemon; wonderful pasta dishes; beautiful shrimp that tastes like the ocean; fabulous fish. Owner... More

Far and away best restaurant we've had anywhere in Italy. Neighborhood, locals-only place but they were most welcoming and friendly to the English speakers. Freshest ingredients, sophisticated preparation, delicate flavors. Fantastic wine list. Reasonable price for such high quality. Went at end of July 2 days before holiday closing- owner on vacation until end of August.

Hidden away close to Campo de Fiori you will find a high class restaurant. Fresh ingredients and freshly prepared which also means that you don't rush through your meal. We were there midweek with only a few other guests. What a pity because you really get value for money. And to our fellow travellers: if you book a table and... More
