Great wine

We stopped by after a day shopping in Rome. The weather was great and we managed to secure a table outside despite the place was quite busy. The wine selection was pretty good as were some of the appetizers we ordered. They take bookings so you might want to do that to avoid disappointment. Dress... read more

Had a great fillet here cooked perfectly. My sister in law actually enjoyed it and wished afterwards We had ordered another as we shared food around the table. Had a great cheese plate appetizer to start but beware the goat cheese unless you like it with the goat still in it. Fun place but gets crowded in evening with folks... More

Great food, excellent and helpful staff. Beautiful environment. Locals spilling out onto the street, eating and drinking. Generally a really nice place to be. Better book if you want to eat at peak times. The experience is worth it.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. It had a youthful flair. Young people were hanging outside with drinks and food. As you enter there is a busy bar scene again with young couples and singles. We had a reservation so we were immediately escorted to the back room dining area. Our waitress was especially nice and helpful. Her name was... More

My husband and I were quite hangry after the Vatican and came upon this gem. So happy we did! Wonderful food and wine. The server was incredibly helpful. You absolutely must have the apple and custard dessert and whatever dessert wine the server recommends.

We were recommended this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Staff really friendly superb menu. We probably ordered too much. Excellent wine. Quite difficult to find but so glad we did and could have stayed all afternoon. Great find after visiting Vatican

First of all I cannot believe the bad reviews. After a weary tour of the Vatican we were in need of a good lunch. We were treated efficiently and pleasantly by staff. They were attentive and served us quickly......even when they were busy and every table filled. There was a good mix of customers from young people, young professionals and... More

Il Sorpasso has recently become so fashionable, that the direction allows herself to treat customers, as if they were selling fish at the market (I ask the fishmongers for forgiveness). Today with a group of friends we decided to have a drink and something to eat, at il Sorpasso, as the sun was shining and Spring seemed to have finally... More

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
