Description: Giving always attention to meet the changing course of the latest trends, the restaurant has the culinary agility to anchor the current fashion to the heritage of the rules and quality of the food products, maintaining the delicate equilibrium between discretion and popularity. In this way, we assure our guests to be present, without appearing. The original customs officer and the modern host, preserving the historic mission of the place, have been followed by a family known as connoisseurs of taste: the perfection of the proposed cuisine, offered in an ambiance enhanced by the beauty of the great artworks and the meticulous attention for each guest, so to guarantee an exclusive atmosphere combined with the warmth of a comforting familiarity. Our guest, no matter from which movie set arrives, or for how long hasn’t come, is always welcomed with a smile, a shake of hand, a delicious meal accompanied by an excellent wine and with the warmth of the art surrounding this fascinating angle of Rome. We know well that what the body nurtures is not foreign to the soul.

I've been to Antica Pesa three times over the years and it does not disappoint. The food is very very good - from pasta, to meats (lamb and veal both great choices) to the fish everything is excellent. For me the stand out dishes are the amatricana pasta and the grilled calamari. The setting is beautiful - be sure to... More

Our party of three celebrated a special occasion at L'Antica Pesa on a Monday night. We had booked a few days in advance. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and shown to a very pleasant table. We all ordered three courses - each was very good and the guancio di manzo and saltimbocca particularly impressed. The wine list is... More

I had received a recommendation from some friends who had been there a couple of times. They were obviously on a business budget (company paying) and were not deterred by the very high priced wine list. I admit it was impressive but the markup was also exorbitant. They need to add a few more less expensive bottles. We did have... More

Strange unhygienic wooden boxes to serve the food from.The waiters were truly bored as if they had been there for 30 yeas, one even tare down our bread basket and he asked me... More

The wine book was huge! The wait staff was so attentive and waited on us hand and foot. This is a huge celebrity hot spot and I can... More

My husband and I came here for dinner and loved it - especially my husband. We walked in without and reservation and were told that we wouldn't be able to be seated by a small older Italian woman however a male then came and escorted us to a table. The staff was excellent and so accommodating. The food was excellent... More

We were referred to this restaurant in the Garibaldi section of Rome, We did not need a reservation, as we had dinner after 9:00 pm, however our service was excellent, our waiter was very charming and the food was excellent. We sat in the back outdoors, and on a summer evening it is wonderful. Inside are pictures of all the... More
