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.

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
