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.

Having booked through our hotel, we arrived on time to find no welcome. Eventually we were able to persuade a waiter to take us to our table - on the inside of a terrace, no view, no ambiance. No-one was prepared to speak any English - not the Italian maitre de, not the Polish waitress, not the Italian waitress. We... More

This restaurant is in a lovely location and we had been wanting to visit for some time. We finally went yesterday, for a light Saturday lunch. Service was slow given we only ordered pasta and there were a mere two other tables full in the entire place. But my fresh pasta with porcini, asparagus and pachino was fine (the asparagus... More

Great terrace. high up away from the noisy streets. We had a fix menu for 60 euros. The food and drinks didnt stop coming all night.. It is a family run restaurant and it is popular with the locals The friendly staff give a great service throughout.

When we entered the restaurant we were not greated by any of the waiters who definately noticed that a customer just entered their restaurant.... More

If you are in Rome and want a guaranteed good meal, (whether it's pasta, meat, fish...) a great, elegant atmosphere, a wonderful balcony and excellent service, then go to Consolini. An eternal classic, it is on via Marmorata, so you can follow it up with some drinks in Tarstevere or a night out in Testaccio. The very scenic entrance has... More
