We ordered pasta Romana, spaghetti, pasta carbonara and pasta fettuccini. All meals were too salty! The chef went overboard with the salt. Also, they charged 7.50 euro for the bread that they put on the table without telling us it wasn't free.

I had read about this restaurant before leaving the states but had not made a reservation because they cannot be made via email. I happened to mention it to my tour guide for Ancient Rome and she highly recommended it. She immediately called the restaurant and made a lunch reservation for us following the tour. La Taverna is near the... More

With a location just steps from Piazza Venezia and the Colosseum, I was so nervous that this place would be very touristy, despite reading some positive reviews. I was very pleasantly surprised. It didn't feel touristy at all (ok, they had an English menu and sent us an English speaking waiter but there were clearly locals there as well.) The... More

I have eaten in many restaurants in Europe and America and really enjoy trattoria and bistro style restaurants where the chef uses great fresh produce and does not try to do too much with them. We were shown to our table by a very friendly lady and given our menus and ordered. The first course to share lamb meatballs was... More

This is a lovely restaurant behind the forum. They have one table outside which they reserve for VIP and several tables inside. The chef and staff could not be nicer. The food is very good. This is not the best meal I have had in Rome but very good. My son the vegetarian found several things to eat. My Puttanesca... More

Located near the Colosseum and just down the street from Fafiuche . I'd suggest an antipasti and a few glasses of wine at Fafiuche before the main course here. A good way to try out more than one spot. They bring out bread w/o letting you know there is a charge - and it's so dry it's hard to get... More

Okay, if you are in Rome plan in advance to eat here. I teach in Rome every summer and a friend introduced me. The food is simply outstanding. The place is the real deal run by family. Envision long, authentic meals with perfect wine pairings, ever changing specials, and a menu of classics that will leave your mouth watering. All... More

This restaurant is the one you have been looking for. It has the menu. It has the charm. It has outstanding house wine. But, most of all, the food is to-die-for. Unlike many of the other restaurants, they have a menu of daily specials that were simply unbelievable. One was better than the next. Upon arrival, I knew it would... More

Monti is a picturesque lively neighborhood not far from Via Nazionale. LOts of local night life . Mostly young people hanging outside enotecas and bars. Sort of like a stationary passagiatta. This restaurant was well recommended . The fresh bur rata was amazing as were the pastas. Great local color and good food. Again go by early to make a... More

We visited the colosseum and of course were starving. Was a little harder to find, but it's a nice short distance away from the strip of restaurants. They were full, but were able to fit is in with just two. Pretty good prices, esp for near the attractions. We ordered the meat and cannelloni with milk and tomato sauce (amazing),... More
