The menu was really interesting a bit different from others but still with a very traditional roman feel. There were a couple of specials which the waiter explained beautifully and he was very knowledgable about the whole menu. my husband... More

Had a wonderful meal here. I had never eaten halibut so perfectly cooked and the warm chocolate dessert was worth every one of the 20 minutes wait.Delightful atmosphere and charming staff.

We had a late dinner here on a rainy evening in February. 2014. My dinner consisted of 3 antipasti courses, as I wasn't very hungry. The fried dishes were a little greasy, but the salad was fresh, and the service was courteous.

La Buca di Ripetta is an unpretentious, simple place. The tables are close together like in most fine trattorias, creating the coziness that Italians like, which is why you'll find so many locals here.

It was a Monday and heaving and I was lucky to geI the last table. As a solo traveller you can sometimes get less stellar service (though I find this doesn't happen in Europe as... More
