We've been twice. The pasta and the desserts were amazing. The pizza wasn't as amazing but still great. Excellent olives! And the Nutella flavoured dessert of the day.

Went to Rome in May and found it amazing. Our hotel was out of the town centre and on our way to the Termini we walked past this amazing restaurant. We stopped for food twice in our 4 days there, as the food and service were top notch. The service was amazing and all the servers could not have been... More

I came to Rome with my grandma and this was the perfect place, conveniently located a block and a half from where we stayed. I think the reason I had a feeling that it would be good was because as you pass it, no one runs after you to try to get you to sit down - they're either busy... More

Again, I was recommended by our receptionist about this restaurant in this district near Metro Manzoni, and indeed it was well affordable for both my girlfriend and I. Seems to me that a lot of other hoteliers recommend this restaurant and it seems to be frequented by locals as well. We tried pastas which tasted quite freshly made and the... More

Initially recommended to us by the hotel staff (Donatello - just around the corner), we weren't disappointed with the food and excellent service we got from Giovanni and his staff. The restaurant was clean and the food was really good value for money.

This restaurant was suggested by our receptionist Lyra. Tried it on our second night and took fillet which was medium cooked excellantly as we requested plus greek salad which was really fresh. Tried tiramisù which was excellent too. We dined on two other occasions and tried pizza, pasta and lemon chicken. All were great and waiters were friendly too

Our order was confused 3 times, but at the end everything went well. The pizza was nothing out of ordinary. The house wine was decent. The staff was responsive, but I can't say the restaurant is something way above average. There are similar restaurants just down the street.

This place was right around the corner from my hotel and I had been tempted to try it. After having stopped on the sidewalk to look over the menu, I promised the hotess who had approacded me that I would be back in an hour. She jokingly said they would have to shot me if I didn't return as promised.... More

I have no clue why people think this is a good restaurant! As soon as we sat down we were handed menus in English. I prefer to read the Italian menus as the translations are usually off and I am able to understand a bit of Italian anyway. Our food was ok, but the gnocchi was mushy and tasteless. My... More
