Fairly good food but not overly welcoming

Pasta was good according to our boys, age 8, lasagne OK but not the best. It was open in the afternoon and we where hungry so that is why we called in. Welcome not great and goodbye non existent and with a 10% service charge. Can't really recommend. Only go if you can't get anywhere else.

I was eating there when they first opened. Long before the wooden stucture. Food was great back then wine list good. Over the years they became very successful. Food is still great if you understand Roman food. That being said I do agree with some of the negative reviews. They need to find the way back.... Greg from Canada ...... More

35€ for 2 sandwitches, a beer and 2 little cookies. One of the sandwiches was good but it's still a sandwitch... furthermore for that price you don't get any smile or even a word, seems that you're boring them

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

Staying in Aventine

Neighborhood Profile
Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is Rome’s oasis. A neighborhood made up of a patchwork of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of surprises like the clever little keyhole at the Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find a line) along with Parco Savello (Giardino degli Aranci) next to the ancient Santa Sabina church. Keep your eyes on the 1960s architecture, several modern buildings are built atop Rome’s original 4th century BC wall.
