Having enjoyed numerous Michelin Stared establishments across the world We were greatly looking forward to an Italian experience in Rome. Booked online, confirmed with an early evening booking but when we arrived we were told there was an issue with the online booking facility and we didn't have a reservation. There was no apology, no effort to accommodate an obvious... More

The place is small, located in an old hotel, but when you enter the place you find a simple but very fancy place, with a great service and food. Go for the suggestions of the ownner who takes car of you personally all over the dinner. Not outrageously expensive for a one Michelin star Restaurant.

We have just enjoyed a magical Christmas lunch at Pipero al Rex. The Christmas menu was stunning and thoughtful and the atmosphere was very enjoyable. After discussions, we left it up to Mr Pipero to choose our wines and his selections were perfect. The food was stunning, with no weak dishes, every course was spectacular yet restrained, so by the... More

Our concierge recommended this place - a high-end chef's tasting menu restaurant in a nearby boutique hotel - and was able to get us in las-minute in spite of it only having less than 10 tables. From beginning to end, the experience was artful and adventurous, you can order the chef's prix fixe tasting menu (we did) or go a... More

We went to Pipero restaurant driven by Trip Advisor comments. All in all it was a good experience. The appetizers, the potato cream , the pasta dishes, the meats (both lamb and pork), the desserts, all of them, superb. Only the pumpkin ravioli, unexpectedly cold, were dissapointing. Everything plus a Tocana wine bottle, came at 95 € each, which is... More

As we were staying at the Hotel Rex and read good reviews of the restaurant, we decided to treat ourselves and go on my birthday. We've also never tried a restaurant with a Michelin star rating and wanted to know what the experience would be like. Our reservations were at 7:30pm on a Monday and there were was only 1... More

Since my last visit things have improved quite a bit. The food is in a class of its own, the service is first class and Alessandro Pipero is a fantastic guy. I especially liked the duck tartare, the caviare pasta and the lamb. The wine list is impressive and consistent. Absolute top.

We picked this restaurant based on its Michelin 1-star status. Food was good - we both ordered the tasting menu without wine which consisted of a perfectly cooked mackerel, haddock soup with soft boiled egg and hazelnuts, 2 pasta dishes, lamb entree and dessert. We loved all of them. 2 pasta dishes in a row came as a bit of... More

Really great food, especially carbonara. we had a tasting menu, make sure to be really hungry. I will repeat, DO NOT EAT ANYTHING ELSE THAT DAY :) Price for a tasting menu of 100 EUR is fair, however the matching wine was a bit over priced (as proposed by a very helpful staff) so we sticked with a bootle of...
