We arrived in Rome beyond lunchtime & we were starving. We began walking and found Ripetta - it looked familiar - we had dined there last year. We began with an absolutely amazing porcini mushroom salad with rucola & Parmesan. I could have stopped there - but we had to have pasta too. We chose a fabulous Falanghina vino to... More

Had to give this place 5 stars since we had a really good lunch here. The pasta was perfecty cooked, tasted excellent and was beautifully presented. The place also looked nice and we would have gone back for dinner if we had more time in rome

When wr arrived the place was jampacked, and the 2 waiters really could not cope, although they did do their very best, but the food was really great, and a superb winelist completed a wonderfull evening. At 10 pm 90 percent of the guests left, so if you want more peace and quiet, and better service, you should time your... More

We visited here on our last night in Roma and came upon it by avoiding all of the tourist restaurants around. This was truly a delicious and memorable meal. Definitely make a reservation if you can as it is always packed, even when we got there at 10:00. I had the Paccheri pasta with fried artichokes and veal sauce which... More

Was relieved to find this restaurant thanks to Trip Advisor. This place restored my faith in Italian food after eating at various tourist traps in Rome where the Pizza & Pasta are frankly awful! Anyway, the Wife and I ordered 2 x pasta dishes ( a Ravioli & a fuccini Dish) Both were fresh and beutifully cooked. As a second... More

There are plenty of restaurants in the Piazza del Poppolo district where we were staying, and this was by far the best experience we had during our 3 days in Rome. We got there at 7:00 pm when it opened, without a reservation, and were seated at a lovely corner table, though by 8:00 the place was filled. It's a... More

We chose to dine here on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews, and we are glad we did, as the food and service did not disappoint us. The turnaround time for the food was very good, and the menu had lots of variety even for vegetarians. Service was very good and efficient. Staff were attentive which was nice to see. This... More

Tried this off the back of TA reviews. Great food, great service. Hot choc pudding my daughter had was to die for ! Friendly waiting staff who squeezed us in without a reservation. Seems to be busy with people queuing outside the door and waiting for tables, so obviously popular.
