We had a fantastic meal at this restaurant last week (14th August), and would definitely recommend a visit. We were recommended that we visit here, whilst on a cookery course with a local Italian chef, and were really pleased with the standard of the food, the lovely service, and the cosy atmosphere. The choice of food on the menu was... More

Nice place at the Via di Ripeta - near the Piazza del Popolo - with a very cosy atmosphere inside. Excellent service by two guys with a passion for food and wine and a convincing story on everything they cook for you. Food was excellent but portions are not too generous so anti/prima/secondo are manageable. Mixed clientele of locals and... More

The patrons at the table next to us had ordered something they were exclaiming over. Had to have it too! It was called uovo al tartufo - egg with black truffles. I could have eaten three of them - just delicious. Also had the pear ravioli and it was the best we had enjoyed our entire life. Very popular restaurant... More

La Buca is a busy little restaurant we walked past and prebooked our table a couple of hours before hand. We were greeted by professional waiters who were excellent throughout our meal. We shared a starter which was their special antipasta which was pleasant and enough to share. My wife had Gnocchi which was fresh and delicate. I had the... More

I loved the taste of Rome chef's choice menu option. Pricey but well worth it. I loved the food and atmosphere and would dine here again.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and ended up having dinner here twice. Best food we had during our ten day stay in Italy. Service was efficient and friendly.

It is a pity to release this review, because I spent half an hour along the street evaluating who could be the best restaurant in Via di Ripetta. Finally, I decided to choose this restaurant, because of Tripadvisor, because of the interiors of the restaurant, because of the menu shown outside of it. I asked a suggestion for the pasta... More

I didn't get a chance to eat a lot here as I was not very hungry, but what I ate was very good - stuffed zucchini flowers fried in tempura, a Rome speciality I think. Worth a try.

On a Saturday evening, getting off the #2 tram at the Piazza del Popolo, with skies threatening rain, we looked for a place to eat. We stood outside the gate to the outdoor terrace of Dal Bolognese where the maitre d', overseeing the preparations for opening, resolutely ignored us. We walked away, down Via Ripetta, and found La Buca di... More
