This was the best meal that I had in Italy. Everything was prepared perfectly and all of the dishes were beautifully presented. I'm really glad that we found this place. It can be easy to miss! I ordered the tasting menu and was very happy with everything that came out. The portions were huge! It was more like two full... More

Without a shadow of a doubt this was our best meal in Rome throughout our 5-night stay. We went based on previous trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed! People have said it was difficult to find but we found it fairly easily, it's just set back from the road a few metres. We went on a Sunday evening and... More

This is a wonderful restaurant near the Vatican. It is very tastefully decorated, and we especially liked the fact that it was quiet and serene inside, with no outside seating and all the craziness that comes with that. The food was outstanding, beginning with the smoked goose appetizer we had and ending with a very creative dessert filled with fruit... More

The wife chose this place as a result of reviews and I have to say that it really disappointed. I chose the 35 euro set menu and it consisted of four courses. I'll acknowledge that the sea food pasta course was fine but the smoked tuna and rocket was just that and boring, the fish and sliced potatoes were just... More

Dear sir, I see you have mentioned a few dishes in your review that we don't server in our restaurant. So, I hope you did not confuse us with another place during your visit to Rome. Each guest at our restaurant is looking for something specific. I hope on your next visit you will give me an opportunity to discuss... More

This is a first class restaurant proximate to the Vatican. Our experience here was first rate from beginning to end. A welcome drink sets the tone. The set course menus are a fine choice here. If not all of the diners at the table select the set course meals, there is a willingness to time the dishes to match the... More

Came across this restaurant by accident just off Piazza Americo Capponi between Vatican & Castel Sant Angelo on Saturday night looking for a table for 4 and boy were we delighted we found this gem. The lady who runs the place was brilliant and sorted us out with a free prosecco while we studied the menu. Great choice of veggie,... More

We randomly chose this restaurant as it was just round the corner from our B&B and tonight was our first night in Rome - such a wonderful surprise! The food was superb and the service was friendly, attentive but not at all obtrusive. Would highly recommend to anyone staying in Rome - the restaurants for the rest of our stay... More

I recommend this restaurant to anyone in rome, the food here is simply excellent. The pasta with pistachio and shrimps is a must, the best pasta in rome. Also, the white chocolate mousse is great. The location is very good, near st peter's basilica, but not on the main street. You might have trouble in finding it the first time.

This restaurant was a delight from start to finish. We were greeted at the door by a woman, who apparently was the owner. We could not have been made to feel more welcome. This was the start of our wonderful evening here. The decor is stylish and peaceful. The food is just as Fodor's promised: "creative without being pretentious". The... More
