Enoteca as it is called in Italian but also very good food. Large selection of wines (especially Italian, which are the best of course). In addition a reasonably populated list of dishes, ranging from classic roman ones to new ideas. Very nice ambiance and friendly staff. Price is acceptable, if you don't select rare bottles of wine. Problem is parking,... More

More a wine restaurant than a bar, this place was a gem of a find in Rome. Great staff and lovely ambience surrounded by towering wine shelves as well as whiskies, rums, cognacs, etc, this is a real visual treat. It's small and intimate so do book ahead on the busy nights (thursday-saturday) if you want to guarantee a table.... More

This place was recommended by the owners of a B&B we stayed at down the street. We were so exhausted and no desire to go into the center of town for a meal. I am sooo glad that we listened to their advice and came here. It was in fact the best meal we had in Rome. The scallop appetizer... More

The menu is maybe a bit small in selection, but quality is outstanding. Large wine selection and reasonable priced. Great dinner for a reasonable price.

Great wine bar and restaurant in the Prati area. Decent food for a decent price, good wine and friendly, relaxed interiors with wooden tables and brick walls. Do not expect to be blown away by the service, though fairly attentive, they are younger and busy, which are just fine in this kind of setting. We were here on a Saturday... More

A good change from pizza and pasta, wine selection is unbelievable. You feel like your off the tourist trail. Staff speak good English. The fruit lasagna is great.

Family run place with tremendous wine. Go to the "bar" side early (6-7pm). You can get a glass killer wine for about €5,00. Sound a bit pricy? Well, know that this includes a FREE appitzer buffet! Yes, it's the stuff and the server was great. Wine was terrific. She spoke a bit of English.

You could walk by the Del Frate without noticing it -- but what a mistake it would be. I actually did that, then was later invited to dinner by a friend. Del Frate is multipurpose: wine merchant, coffee bar, and restaurant. Sitting in the shop, surrounded by an infinity of Italian wine and other Vermouths and Limoncello bottles, we had... More
