We went here on our final night in Rome, after finding it in Lonely Planet. We were seated swiftly and the staff were very accommodating. We were moved to a more comfortable table by the owner and treated to complimentary soup appetisers, which were tasty! I had the marinated chicken with salad, not exactly Italian I think but it was... More

We were attracted by a mention in Michelin's Green Guide. Our first impression was very good. The place is cozy and the decor attractive. The menu presents an interesting selection of dishes including starters. soups, pasta and main courses. There is also a fair wine list and the Chianti was very good. We both started with a mozzarella di buffala... More

We liked Babette so much the first time we returned for our last night dinner in Rome. The covered interior courtyard is very quiet and romantic with candlelit tables. Most of the diners seemed to be local, always a good sign. We were welcomed by Flora with a complimentary glass of prosecco on the second visit. Service was impeccable and... More

We were referred from owner of B&B. He is born and raised in Rome this is one of his favorite restaurants, we can see why. The food, service was great. You must try the Ravioli's they are incredible. We liked it so much we went back again two nights later, we felt like regulars.

Cute little restaurant at the end of the gorgeous Via Margutta. Excellent flavours! The courtyard was a nice setting although it would have been just as nice indoors

Great little gem really close to our hotel. Not cheap, but the food was excellent and worth every euro.

The restaurant was booked on recommendation for a special Birthday meal for a group of 8. We booked the courtyard and were seated immediately. I can only describe the meal as fabulous with 3 courses and liqueurs served by attentive staff. The Babette cake for dessert was a revelation. Try it :)

The courtyard dining experience was excellent. Brunello de Montalcino by the glass. Home made pasta - fantastic! Service was friendly and good.

We requested a courtyard table (we hadn't booked) and were told one would be free at 9.30 - they weren't full! But this being Italy we thought we'd go for an aperitif somewhere else first. Returning to the requested courtyard, the service was attentive, but never rushed and very informative. There was a real mix of couples, groups and a... More
