Good food and service

Good Italien food - that is to say that the menu is not yet coloured by the tourism. Thin crisp pizzas, fresh seafood and good pasta. Big portions so no one left hungry,

The food was delicious - and a lot of it! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Not too expensive either. Thumbs up for Retro and staff.

We were staying in a hotel round the corner and found this restaurant in a side street near the main road. It's a great little place with excellent outdoor seating! We arrived at 7:30 and were the first there, but it soon filled up with locals (good sign) and others we had seen at H10 Hotel. The food was excellent,... More

We went here as we were also staying in H10 Roma citta and it was recommended by the hotel, we shared a carbonara and a calzone, the carbonara was beautiful but the calzone slightly let it down, overall a good meal with attentive waiters!

Very good food, reasonably priced and staff were friendly. Just be careful sitting near the edge by the plants as you might get bitten!!

Side street location in mixed commercial area but handy for H10 hotel. Clientele seemed more local than touristy and decor is plain and functional. Food above average and excellent fish special recommended by staff and me! Not a single bottle of brandy or cognac to go with coffees and not a big fan of grappas, so 17 year old Langulvin... More

We stumbled across this place while we had taken a walk to find food from our hotel (H10 Città Roma). Sooo glad we did!! We thought it was closed as there was no one else in the whole place but soon started filling up with Italians.. You know what they say if their own people eat there it has to... More

Good choice at reasonable prices. Had no need to book during our midweek stay. 3 courses plus good bottle of wine is possible for 80 euros. Quiet until around 8.30 when a lot of Italians start to arrive and create a busy but nice atmosphere. Very handy alternative to the H10 hotel restaurant. Ate here 2 out of our 3... More

Looked for somewhere close by after arriving late in Rome. Was recommended by hotel. Turned up with no reservation and had no problem getting a table. Place filled up quickly, mostly with locals. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and mostly spoke very good English, which helped my poor Italian. We followed some great recommendations for starters then... More
