We stayed in Rome mid September 2014 for five nights. Our accommodation was near Flaminio metro station / Piazza del Popolo. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from however, if you are looking for a little more of the local, traditional food of Rome then there are a few good little places on Via di Ripetta namely, La Buca....

Great service, delicious food, lovely atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience here and luckily we got a table for two without a reservation.

Service was very professional, with the waiter having excellent English (which is unlike the usual Italian fare!). They promptly brought menus and explained their specials and a couple of dishes that were not available on the day. I found the detailed description of how each plate is cooked and served very enticing. For starter we had the taster combination of... More

Every year we go to Rome we must stop here more than once for dinner! Always get the pear ravioli! Out of this world. Waiters and staff are so pleasant and service is always good! Make sure to get a reservation!

We didn't book but as always, they found a table for two. Great service and amusing waiters who want to have a rapport with diners. Starters were amazing! Mains weren't as good but decent quality. Wine list could be better. Other drinks are 8 Euros. A bit steep even for here. There us home made pasta, fish and beef. Nice... More

nice restaurant, good food. We had pasta and fish (the fish was little bit frozen inside but they changed it with no problem - it was perfect the ). Very good aperol spritz but bit expensive (7€ per glass is to much, we had it for 3-4.5 in Venezia this summer anywhere). They also had a big and nice wine... More

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
