The restaurant opens promptly at 7pm. There is usually a queue outside the door. The waiter with a beard who never smiles opens the door and glares at you. If you don't have a reservation they will probably tell you that it's full, but a reservation for the next evening is usually possible. We didn't order a starter and the... More

We booked our reservation several weeks in advance, and good thing too: even on a Monday they were booked solid, I saw some reservation-less guests turned away, and while I asked to be seated over an hour early they were unable to seat us prior to our reserved time. Good for them!! The staff was a bit cold and seemingly... More

Two things about Armando's: 1. It is small and very well supported by regulars. You must book. 2 The food is excellent. Top quality Roman dishes with daily specials that are hard to go past. A third thing - don't miss it !!

We were out walking and chanced our hand at Armando al Pantheon. We were early enough that a table booked for later was available so long as we finished by the reservation time. We had two hours so we easily managed that. To get a table you really do need to book in advance. It was well worth it though.... More

We'd been disappointed the night before, and the exterior of Armando's does little to persuade you that this is going to be different, but it was. Our waiter made the suggestion that we might share a selection of starters and then 4 portions of Spaghetti Griscia between the 8 of us. All this worked perfectly with the spaghetti worthy of...

I was determined to find outstanding carbonara in Rome (not the faux stuff with Alfredo sauce you usually get in the US) and I found it at Armando. Small place, excellent food, wish I could go back tomorrow.

I don't believe this restaurant merits the reviews it receives. Their food involves much more oil and fat than any other restaurant I've eaten at in Rome. The fat gives the food a richer flavor at first, but 30 minutes later it hits like lead and you walk out feeling like you ate too much, not the mark of a... More

Made my res in August for October visit. It was a perfect night. Waiters extremely friendly and accommodating. Food was perfect....truly....there is little wonder why this place must turn people away every night. All the Pastas are remarkable, and after 12 days, I was so SICK of pasta, but for my last meal in Italy, it was a must, and... More

We got lucky and got a table for two for lunch without a reservation. We had a starter, pasta and a course of meat. It was all very good, but the pasta was simply incredible. If you are walking through the city and plan a stop next to the Panteon, this is definitly highly recommended!

4 of us came here on our last day in Rome, for our last meal, and it didn't disappoint! We each had 2 courses which can be single full meals by itself. A good aglio olio prides itself on quality ingredients, and their take on it was refreshing with the added spice complementing the smooth quality of the olive oil.... More
