Excellent and good prices

We went as a family. The kids had gnocchi which were a treat, my wife had pasta which were very nice. And I had joue de veau, which were over the sky. They also serve special beers, which are also very very good. The 4 of us paid 49 euros for a main dish and a drink each. Very good... read more

Located worrying close to the Vatican, so cheek by jowl with some real culinary dross, Osteria della Commari delivered some welcome surprises. Now, this is a proper restaurant. Proper table cloths, cloth napkins, the lot, but the staff didn't blanch at the site of my malodorous offspring: in fact, they were wreathed in smiles. Menus in French were presented (my... More

After a long day touring the Vatican and the Vatican museums, we were ready for a bite to eat and a place to sit. We were walking down the street and stumbled upon this place. We arrived at about 3pm so missed the lunch and dinner rush but it was perfect for us. We had the whole place to ourselves... More

Good restaurant in Prati that feels like an expensive restaurant but it is actually a neighborhood place for a nice meal with the family. We visited twice, because the service, ambiance and food was very good. Great wine options at very good prices, with daily meal specials and the best Carbonara in Rome.

We were staying near St peters and picked out this place from reviews - wow. We seemed to be about the only tourists in this buzzing local eatery, specialising in seasonal locally produced food and wine. Service was attentive from the outset, and we enjoyed a wonderful meal with everything done to perfection. The highlight for me was a tiramisu... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the friendly staff at our nearby hotel (the Hearth Hotel). We were welcomed warmly and seated quickly and provided with an English menu. Our waitress expertly explained some options and specials to us. To start off we had a pasta dish and mine was a pasta Carbonara which was splendid. For the main... More

We happened upon this gem of a little place after being mistreated elsewhere and bolting for the door... Boy, were we lucky! As mentioned by others, there is not much outdoor seating, but the interior is very tastefully done and sets the tone for good things to come. From the antipasti of the day, which was a scrumptious little broccoli... More
