This was my 3rd time at this restaurant, the service is amazing and the food is even better! I went here for the first time last year when I visited Rome and loved it. I was so excited to come back to Rome with my boyfriend as it is his first time in Rome, he loved it so much, we... More

Just a little away from the main drag, this restaurant ticked all the boxes in my family's search for a reasonably priced, tasty venue, serving decent Italian food. All three of us were very chuffed at individual choices. We covered the gnocchi, seafood and veal. My husband is still raving about the tiramisu. Yep, you get charged for bread you... More

Location: In Monti, off Via Nazionale. The place: Old-school decor makes for an 'adult' vibe. Like most restaurants in Italy, they offer tables both indoors and outdoors - but come early as outdoor seating goes fast. As such, I was seated inside. The food: They offer a varied menu but I only ordered Gnocchi al Pomodoro. The Gnocchi had a... More

I asked for tap water, and never ordered bread. Yet, they gave and charged me for bottled water and bread. The food was mediocre at best, and over-salted (a common theme in Italy). The tiramisu had been sitting in a fridge for hours, and lacked any good flavors. Service was abrupt and lacking any sort of smiles or appreciation for... More

Good worth for money in this restaurant. It's not easy to avoid all the tourist traps in Rome, and this is definitively an outstanding restaurant. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the food very delicious. Prices are moderate, and there is a good choice of italian specailities. The restaurant is also located in a very nice neighborhood with lots... More

I have been in this restaurant for a late night dinner with my colleagues, hoping to get some good quality food, and ended up being extremely disappointed. First of all, staff was rude to say the least. rarely have I witnessed waiters almost throwing the plate at you, as if they were doing you a favour in bringing it to... More

The place was recommended by the hotel as a "second" place just in case. We walked pass the original recommendation and found this place. What a find!!! The food was fantastic and the service was unbelievable. The prosciutto and cantaloupe were out of this world. My wife had a pasta dish which was fantastic. My daughter had spaghetti ravioli and...

Rome was our fourth stop having been to Venice, Florence and Tuscany. Not a bad meal. Many superb. La taverna is the one we went back to. Two of the best meals we have ever had. I had lasagna one night and ravioli two nights later. Wife and adult son had fish, pasta and meat. Side vegetable dishes were incredible.... More

We decided to try this restaurant tucked into a side street off of Via Nazionale because of it's proximity to our hotel. At first, we thought we might have made a mistake...for some reason, the piped-in music is 80's American, but we quickly realized we had found a gem. Service was attentive and businesslike, but not unfriendly. The Bolognese was... More
