I would highly recommend this lunch! I had the pasta with meat sauce and my cousin had the ravioli with pesto. Very good!

My boyfriend and I were recommended this restaurant by a friend and the trip advisor reviews are great so we thought it was a good option. The food is nice, average in my opinion but my boyfriend says slightly better than average... My slight distaste was mainly from the chef who greeted every table no matter their language and introduced... More

We just left this restaurant about an hour ago, and are still floating on air over the mouth watering food and the service that makes you feel like a cherished friend or member of the family. Located in a charming neighborhood, the inside is as warm and inviting as the outside. The cream colored walls are dotted with fun memorabilia... More

First time was in April 2008 and was a recommendation from our hotel. Delicious food and friendly service. Flash forward July 2014, the restaurant is still fantastic! Booked our reservation for dinner on the same day. (Sunday night) It is popular with tourists, English and Italian speaking ones. However, locals still frequent them. We had two apps, two pasta dishes,... More

Pollo al limone was very good. Beer or wine is expensive as everywhere else in Italy. It gets crowded at peak times.

This little tavern is a very good restaurant, well frequented by Italians. My friend and I had luck to get a table without reservation. The service was friendly and courteous and the chef came to greet his guests. The ambience was therefore very familiar. Beside the normal menu, there was a separate card with dishes of the day. The food... More

We were actually not at the Colosseum nor the Forum - but had been looking for the Vespa museum downstairs at Bici and Baci! Oh, it was a hot sunny day and the crowds were awful. What's with people in large crowds staring at their phones expecting oncoming pedestrians to watch out for them? Sigh and I digress. So, we... More

Everytime i travel to Rome i eat here, innovative dished, perfect service and always a good time. Only minus is that this is a very popular restaurant so you need to book in advanced. Have eaten here many times a year for the last to years. Looking forward to next visit

We wanted something close to the colosseum but not a tourist rip off and this fit the bill perfectly. A bit hard to find using our free hotel map in the tangle of tiny streets off a big main road - but worth seeking out. We had delicious carbonara off the special chefs menu and also a rabbit and duck... More

We stumbled across this restaurant round the corner from our fantastic B&B Made In Rome. The staff and owner were very welcoming and attentive. The food at lunch was superb and the house wine recommendation hit the spot. We were only disappointed that when we returned a few days later we couldn't get it as we had failed to book... More
