Fantastic pace of delivery, rapid at first then slower. Some excellent signature dishes - the tea - poached egg, the duck tartare sandwich and the carbonara. And with a delightful bottle of Brunello the nicest surprise was the bill. This should be two stars not one. On a par with Sat Bains and L'enclume.

So many interesting foods! Raw duck, chicken liver mousse, an amazing dessert. Very small restaurant within Hotel Rex, but the quality is exceptional.

Wonderful meal full of surprising flavors and textures. The atmosphere was secluded and felt very relaxed for the quality of the meal. Every bite was a treat, and you were encouraged to eat with your hands! Our dinner was a reunion of family members celebrating many things, and we were delighted with the food and service. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderfull evening here celebrating a birthday in our family. The host Alessandro took very good care of us. There are just a few tables in the restaurant so a very nice setting. Their house Champagne is great value. The food tasted terrific, however I wish they had only given us one pasta dish - two was a... More

The food is outstanding, the very best we have encountered in Rome (and we've been there many times). It's easily of Michelin star standard; and, given the quality of the meal, of exceptional value. The service is equally first class: the waiters are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. We had the tasting menu and were bowled by the complexity and subtlety... More

the hotel facade is deceiving because it looks very provincial and mediocre, but once you enter the restaurant, it's more modern and boutique feel. I liked the private setting. they only have a few tables. The servers were pretty unfriendly and could come off as even rude, which was a turn off, but in the end it was ok, they... More

I took my partner here expecting amazing food unfortunately we were disappointed the service and surrounds were what you would expect from a fine restaurant unfortunately the food didn't live up to the same standards. The best part of the meal was the lovely bread selection at the start. I am not saying the food was bad but was very... More

I tried the tasting menu for lunch, the place seems busy during the evening so I recommend making a reservation. The staff make you feel very welcome and they are very attentive and professional. The tasting menu was really creative, had an excellent presentation and tasted really delicious. Each dish had a nice presentation and always used a very clever... More

The chef consistently checked on us throughout the meal, the food was wonderful, and the wine pairing just made it even better. This was undoubtedly one of the best dinners we had and definitely felt the most personal. I highly recommend eating here if you want upscale dining in Rome.
