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,

Bottom line: Painfully slow service, not friendly to foreigners, and food can be better given how much time it takes the restaurant to get it out to the table. I came here for dinner and right off the bat didn't have a good impression. After waiting at the entrance for a couple minutes, the host finally came out and told... More

Sadly, we were in Rome for 5 nights, so never got opportunity to go back. The food was brilliant, the staff friendly and the service prompt. Would highly recommend!

Great little restaurant that can be easily missed. This was one of two that was recommended by the staff at the hotel we stayed at and it's a shame that we only visited this gem on our final night. The outside seating was perfect for us and the food was brilliant. We had three courses and drinks and it cost... More

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
