I ate here (in July 2014) mainly for sentimental reasons -- my mother had dined here in 1985 on her only trip to Italy and I just had to dine in the same place. I'm sure a lot had changed in 30 years, and I was skeptical because some of the recent reviews were not so good. But the staff... More

I returned at this restaurant after many years. location is great inside an historical building very close to Spanish stairs. I had the same table in a very cool pergola into the courtyard. Restaurant offers typical roman cooking. Frieds egetables were a fantastic starter combined with a very crispy cool local White wine. Raviolis with ricotta were top quality as... More

I only started eating at Concordia three years ago, unlike some other reviewers who say their experience goes back decades. But even I can see that changes have been dramatic. Unfortunately it's no longer a special find, and now just another restaurant choice. Which, if you are not a Rome regular, is not all a bad thing - you will... More

This place was recommended by my hotel concierge, the food was good but nothing extraordinary and the prices are descent. That's about it.

Crazy busy due to location near Spanish steps I presume. Seating includes 'community table concept' ie close close quarters. Once you gain one of the only two waiters in the 'outside covered enclosed area' you realize you better make quick decisions to avoid sitting ignored for too long again.so you wait and have drinks and tableware thrown at your table...

I first at Otello in 1972 with my Parents. For 40 years it has been my perennial first visit restaurant during each of my annual treks. Has always represented good old Roman "Nonna" food but alas something has changed (and not for the better). Upon making the familiar left turn from the Via Della Croce noticed that the outdoor seating... More

I was surprised to see the recent poor reviews as we had a great time here. Sunday lunchtime was busy and boisterous, full of locals and the food was the good, wholesome Roman fare that the menu suggested. Very affordable too, considering it's proximity to the eye wateringly expensive shopping area. Nice covered courtyard area for warmer months.

I have been eating at Otello alla Concordance whenever I visit Rome for 15 years after it was recommended by friends. Sometime in the last 12 months it has completely changed. The energetic management and brilliant waiting staff have gone, as have the local clientele, edible food and any reason at all to go here. Unless of course you want... More

My mum had recommended this place to me from a previous visit, so we went with high expectations. Upon entering the maître de walked past us in order to talk to her friends, after 5 minutes she decided to seat us. The restaurant was not busy but all of the tables around us had not been cleared from the previous... More
