Local Italian restaurant

Large selection of fresh fish with many traditional preparations. Many locals visit the restaurant. Menus in English or Italian. You would probably need to travel by cab.

We love this place, and have eaten here several times when we want a nice, classy, white table cloth dinner. NOTE, the specialty of Consolini is seafood, so don't come here looking for pizza or carne. The entrance is up a flight of stairs, so if you are mobility challenged, skip it. There are basically four levels to the restaurant,... More

I had an excellent steamed fish dish, the waiter offer us a wine made of falanghina grapes, which is the best white wine I ever had. The service is quite good, the waiter very attentive and the prices quite fair. Awesome environment, build on top of a ruin, which is possible to see on the entrance, with a glass floor.

By the side of the river in central Rome. Excellent seafood and free Prosecco in the waiting area/bar. Sat outside with a gorgeous view of Rome. Staff was friendly and attentive. Gave great suggestions.

I am not big fan of seafood, and had no idea that it's restaurant's specialty. However, food was great. Service was very good - just slow a bit.

This was our 25 wedding anniversary meal so we hoped the restaurant would be a fitting celebration. Unfortunately not. The food was average, the service generally poor despite being not busy. In fact the waiter was almost obnoxious. It feels like one of those restaurants that was good many years ago and that now rests on its laurels! We left... More

We were invited to join a group of friends to celebrate a birthday - since this was a restaurant that my husband had on his wish list we were happy to accept. I looked at the website and the menu so I was aware that this was more expensive than the average ristorante/trattoria - but it was a special night... More

We were sent here on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. The staff weren't all that friendly to us (we're American) and the food was just okay. I've had better pasta dishes in the states. If the prices were more reasonable I think we would be reflecting on the experience a little better but they weren't, so we're not. Go... More

First tip, book a terrace table, we were first placed in, and having insisted on the terrace view got one and it was worth a little waiting. The view is great! Second tip, you'll find 90 pct of patrons are local, some large groups, it was slow dining, but that's what you have the view for! Third tip, this is... More

The menu is classic 1950s American-Italian. Nothing interesting or original. A bowl of packaged bread on the table says it all. Pasta was very nice, everything else was beyond dull and lifeless. You could eat this food at an Olive Garden. Service was pleasant. Meh.

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.
