The cafe (bistrot) San Teodoro should be avoided ---- it has become a real tourist trap -- the prices are high and the quality of food not that good. There a better places to eat. Attached to the cafe (same building) was a lovely restaurant Trattoria San Teodoro.....it apparently has closed. The food here was delicious ----

The charming hostess wooed me into a light lunch with her smile and laughter. I was not to be disappointed. My pizza of red sauce and anchovies was perfection with a thin crust as crisp as a biscuit and a light tomato sauce dotted with anchovies. A large glass of Grillo was properly chilled. This little caffé is just off... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant a few weeks ago on a chilli January evening, thought it was closed but luckily tried the door and to our delight found a non-touristy, not too busy restaurant experience which really did hit the right spot. Food and service were amazing & they were more than accommodating with a dairy allergy. Perfectly cooked food... More

During this quick trip to Rome for business I discovered this gem in Rome - close to the Fori, in a quiet part of the city, easy parking. I had an amazing meal, traditional italian food revisited in a contemporary way, elegantly presented, in a very roman setting (a XVII century building); in summer the experience must be even more...

I was there last weekend. The setting is beautiful. The bar overlooks the Forum. We had a lovely table on the terrace. the food was delicioius (even though the portions were small). The wine list was very good. I highly recommend the pork with a very thin layer of crackling.

If you are looking for a charismatic and proper italian dining experience in Rome - this is the place to go! San Teodoro's terrace is lovely and romantic, especially in the evening with all the candles lit and musicians playing. Its wine and dessert are to die for!!!

The restaurant San Teodoro is located in one of Rome most historical site, the Imperial Roman Forum! The restaurant, an elegant oasis of tranquility has a commanding presence in a very historical building with a very beautiful outdoor seating. The menu, is simple and exquisite. The fish is exquisitely prepared oven baked or grilled. The rack of lamb and other... More

Tempted out of our hotel to try local trattoria, we ended up here! this was a serious error! Service was slow, and the food mediocre - microwaved lasagne, burnt pizza and mu daughter selected baked rice - she was served about two tablespoons of sticky goo - which is fortunate really as she spent the night throwing up!!Over priced, with...

The food here is good. Far from the best I've had in Italy but good. On the other hand, the prices, given the quality of the cuisine, are outrageous. €18 for pasta and €26 for entrees. It's priced like a one star Michelin restaurant, with food that doesn't match. Also, the service is just weird. Waitresses constantly hovering, lots of... More

I will always be surprised by extreme reviews and ratings in tripadvisor.. I assume that some unpleasant experiences can happen everywhere, even in the best places But is it necessary then to try to assassinate the place. OK , you may have had a bad experience with seating, etc....but that does not mean you have to rate the food as... More
