Wouldn't go out of my way to get there, but the place is really nice and the food is good. We had a chick pea soup and a gnocchi dish, both were tasty.

We had pre-booked all our restaurants during our four day stay and went to La Buca on our last night. Just wished it had been our first night and we would have cancelled the other bookings. This is simply the best restaurant in Rome - trust me. It was full by 8.15pm so book a table. The atmosphere is amazing... More

This restaurant is about 300 metres down Via di Ripetta, off the Popolo Piazza or Square. We ate there twice and were not disappointed. Food was delicious with a good choice and not ridiculously expensive like some restaurants nearer to the square. Wine list was a bit expensive but we had a Pinot at €30 the first night and €22...

This restaurant has a comfortable, cosy atmosphere. The dishes are presented nicely and are full of flavour. Good choice for non meat eaters. We had a variety - pasta stuffed with pear, stuffed zucchini flowers deep fried, fresh mozzarella, tagliata, all delicious. The tiramisu was superb. Wines in a range of prices, there should be something to suit. I would... More

We were delighted to get a table at this charming bistro in Rome. the dishes arrived looking fantastic. I had eggplant risotto. my husband, a chef, had the Osso Bucco. They looked incredible and tasted good - not great. Service was terrific. Mix of tourists and Italians.

This is a small trattoria a short walk to the south of Piazza del Popolo. We went quite early on a Wednesday night and were lucky to get a table for 5. The restaurant is small but has a cosy and welcoming feel. Service was very good and my wife and 3 daughters seemed very impressed with the waiters!!. Food... More

We went twice in a week - unpretentious with staff kept busy trying to keep up with the diners. It is near the Spanish Steps and Piazza Popolo. They will suggest a good, reasonably priced wine and the menu is very nice - including Roman artichokes.

We ate here on our first night in Rome, as a group of 4. The service was good, the food and drink fantastic and there was a great atmosphere.

Concierge at our hotel made the recommendation. Charming but the waiter was in the weeds from the time we arrived at 8pm. Waited 25 minutes to be asked if we wanted anything. Fried artichokes which were good arrived at 9:15. Pasta dishes at 9:40. Pasta in cheese basket was way too salty. Also mussels in peppardale was also very salty.... More

We were lucky to make a last minute reservation and had a great meal with good service. Artichokes to start and then pork belly and a lovely chocolate cAke with a soft centre which was complimented by a sumptuous dessert wine. A great meal
