Good traditional cooking

This was probably my favourite place to have eaten on a recent trip to Rome. Swiss chard with anchovy or coco beans with cured herring for starters gives you an idea.... A bit of simple rural cooking. It's not haute cuisine but it is very tasty and genuine, so it deserves a good rating.

The place is not big and seems to be very popular, so advanced booking is recommended. The tables are very close to each other so the place feels a little crowded when full, but I guess they want to be able to serve as many people as possible. The menu is quite varied with the normal Roman fare, but also... More

Armando's is very small and very close to the Pantheon. My automatic assumption was that any place so close to a major attraction must be a tourist trap and not very good. Boy was I wrong! The food is first-rate. I had braised oxtails that were one of the most delicious braised dishes I've ever had. The pastas were wonderful... More

I am not sure what this place used to be like back in the day and we did go there after a friend recommended it. We had the artichokes and two plates of pasta, both delicious. Have had better though and this was by no means some sort of exceptional meal. The service though left a lasting impression. This is... More

It was our first dinner in Rome. We ordered some starters and then the pasta that they are supposed to be famous for. Ala gricia and amatriciana. Both were overly salty the flavour was ruined and not al dente but uncooked. Since it was our first meal, at first I thought that perhaps that's they way they are supposed to... More

We hadn't been since the layout was changed a couple of years ago. The seating is better. Service is still good and pleasant. What is a shame is the negatives - Owner is full of himself and the clientele were in the main of a type. Food was nothing special, lacked imagination and the menu was lazy - contorni, dolci...

This local gem was recommended to me by a friend and it did not disappoint. We arrived in Rome on the Monday and made a reservation (which is highly advisable) for the Wednesday night. We were warmly great by the staff and shown to our table we were told what the specials were and left to look at the menu.... More

Having a reservation for this restaurant is a must as it is quite popular with locals as well as lots of tourists. The service was attentive and the food was good not great. Value for money spent just wasn't there for what I consider an meal with average food. Yes it is popular, yes its got a great location and... More

What a great find, we booked a table on line and arrived at this cosy restaurant in the shadow of the Pantheon ( me personal favourite building in Rome ) the food was fantastic and reasonably priced with wine being of fine quality. Service was understated and any questions were answered with a cheery response. I would definitely recommend this... More

Make sure you have a reservation. Even for lunch. We had lunch reservations but I saw several people turned away. It was a good thing I still had my email confirmation because they had written down the wrong time in their book. The pasta dishes and the veal saltimbocca were great. I'd love to eat here again.
