We heard about this restaurant through family. It was very good. One of the best places in Rome. We made reservations through our travel agency. The place was packed with local Italians!

Or maybe this is the code of conduct required by the owner of his staff. What astounded me is the queue of people waiting to get in, the "reserved" signs on all the outside tables...but this restaurant deserves recognition for charging exorbitant prices for the most bland tasting food served by the most miserable waiters imaginable. And why do most... More

Went for dinner on Saturday night...came back for Lunch on Sunday! An added bonus was running into Ronnie Wood the night before their show at the next table!

This restaurant was walking distance from our hotel. It is in Piazza Di Poppolo. The food was very good but the staff was not friendly or chatty in the least and seemed a bit put out by any questions or foreigners in general.

Excellent!!!Excellent!!!Excellent!!! Traditional food really well executed. The price is ok considering the quality, specially to Rome that is full of tourist traps. Taste the lasagna or tagliatelle with beef tomato sauce. Tiramisu is a good choice too.

Famous restaurant located in Piazza el Popolo. The place to see and bee seen! The food is bad, the service is worse (unless you are somebody in Rome), but the location is great if you can live with the traffic.

The owner of our vacation rental suggested this restaurant and made us the reservation. Reservations are highly recommended, as we saw people being turned away. I think this restaurant rests a bit on its name, but we quite enjoyed it. The food was good and we thought the service quite friendly. Yes, it is more expensive than similar restaurants in... More

This is a classy, and classical, Roman destination. The pasta we started with was spectacular, but the costoletta alla milanese was beaten too thin, and was a bit dry.

I went to have lunch with my wife and I found the place clean and nice. However the pasta was overcooked, the worst possible thing for an Italian restaurant. I must say that it does not deserve its reputation.
