The restaurant is located in a quite tourist-beaten part of Rome (near Saint Paul's Cathedral), so you will hear al languages of the world while eating here. But nevertheless it's absolutely no tourist trap, the food is good, the location fine, waiters professional. At lunch they offer a three course set menu for € 15 (excl. drinks, but incl. water),...

I prayed for a decent restaurant just after leaving the Vatican on Sunday (29 June) and came across this place. The team speak English are very welcoming and knowledgeable. I chose grilled octopus and asparagus with roquette pesto - soft, warm and very tasty octopus, with clean fresh flavours. I asked for a fruity wine and the waiter/owner brought me... More

Thanks to trip advisor we headed to Mama' Ristorante for an evening meal, arriving at 815pm without a booking for a family of four. We walked the street for 10 mins whilst they organized a table. Service was warm, engaging and impeccable by the two hosts who could converse easily in English. The menu was exquisite, too many choices of... More

I'm not sure why this restaurant has received such great reviews. The service was awful and the food is overpriced and not very appetizing. At one point, the table next to us asked if they could cancel their order (because they had been waiting so long...it wasn't even that busy!) I just wish we could have done the same. Would... More

Over 4 weeks in Prati, we went to Andrea's restaurant 4 times. Each time we were very well looked after, and the food was excellent. The staff were extremely friendly and explained all the daily dishes to us, in English. Every night the restaurant was full with both visitors and locals. We would recommend this to anyone - but if... More

Loved everything about this place from the moment we walked in to when we left. The staff were very nice and attentive. The food was delicious and fresh. You could really taste and smell the quality ingredients. The portions were big and the prices were just right! They serve these little mini pizza-like starters and then end the meal with... More

An excellent genuine resturang not only is good food but also good and friendly service. Here you will find both! I would recommend something from the weekly menu on the black board for the main course. It is an extra 1-3 euros or so but a step up from the ordinary menu, and will give you more complex tastes. We... More

The food and the service was amazing! We had the best dinner so far in Rome. This is a must try place but make sure you book your table.

Found this place by accident and was amazed by the quality. Fresh ingredients, perfectly cooked meals, well sized portions, friendly staff. The food tasted - OMG! I am writing this review and salivating – it was that good. Reasonably priced, it was one of the best meals that i didn't cook myself :) We went there again and I will... More
