We arrived late in Rome and Life was close to our hotel, so we decided to dine here. We should have known before we left what we were in for. Our host warned us about it, but we decided to try it anyways. It was a disappointing experience. The food was below average as far as meals we've had in... More

Wonderful restaurant very friendly staff. Went with work colleagues and we took some of our customers. Fabulous menu. Mixed dried selection starter gorgeous, main was king prawn spaghetti amazing lovely and chocolate mouse with raspberries, very rich but worth it. Drunk lots of Prosecco great atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed their food from pastas pizzas to lobster superb. Well worth a visit.

Celebrating a birthday and anniversary we chose the wine with 5 courses. Every course was a culinary surprise from the truffle and ravioli with several cheeses to the beef filletto topped with foie gras. What was better was the outstanding customer service and beautiful atmosphere. This place is not to be missed while in Rome!!

We booked for a birthday lunch after a recommendation from our hotel and the TA reviews And had a beautiful lunch. The food was excellent and the staff warm and knowledgeable. Had a lovely almost private table. For their full serious menu we would certainly, and probably will, return as soon as we can. However... having enjoyed the full menu... More

Wow. Try the white truffle and burrata entree. It will literally change your life. We came here three years ago and loved it so decided to try it again in December. We were not disappointed.

We stayed in Rome for three days and on a recommendation from the wonderful Hotel Barocco on Piazza Barberini visited this great restaurant. It was the only meal we ate in the three days which we didn't find on TA and it was actually the best. The staff were great, very helpful and informative and the food was fresh and... More
