Lunch was mediocre and expensive. There was confusion about the daily special which then was supposed to be a pasta - turned out to be a red bean soup with undercooked pasta shards and little flavor. Fried artichokes were nothing like Pipernos -- tough and oily. The mixed seafood grill was greasy and very small selection for $30. One can... More

Al Pompiere is in a side street near Largo dei Torre Argentina and it is a great find. A warm welcome was given to us in the spacious and very nice dining room. The service at this restaurant is first class and the cuisine is delicious. I had the artichokes for the first time and was very impressed. My wife... More

The service is charming and the interior is like something from another age. This place has a lot of charm, but it's not cheap and the average food doesn't really justify the prices.

Booked for partner's birthday - staff were amazing, brought delicious cheesecake with a candle in it! The deep fried artichokes, a local speciality, were out of this world, delicious baccala, pasta dishes and complimentary bruchette, and a great wine list. Not a tourist in sight - apart from us of course ;-)

Our visit was all positive. It is upstairs so no view from side street entrance. However a big crowd went in and we followed thinking they must know best. They did. Mostly locals I think, great relaxed atmosphere and interesting traditional decor. We tourists were very well attended to and the food and house wine excellent.

We absolutely LOVE this restaurant! The roman artichokes are amazing, as are the zucchini flowers stuffed with mozzarella cheese. The atmosphere is quaint and the service is good. We would highly recommend it.

I know you go to a restaurant to enjoy the food but I was curious to visit Al Popiero in the Ghetto area. This house belonged to the Cenci family in the 1600s. Beatrice was beheaded for killing her father who abused her. Although public sympathy abounded for Beatrice, the pope had her beheaded some say so that the church... More

We were seated in the back room, where they apparently seat the tourists. Food was ok, nothing more and took forever to be served. One of the plates was the roasted pork with potatoes, but when it finally arrived at the table it came without the potatoes, with no apology. When we asked for the potatoes it took the waiter...

Constant Companion and I had the fried artichokes as an antipasto which turned out to be a bit disappointing but not because of the way they were cooked: It just turns out that this Roman delicacy is just not as exciting as I had been led to believe. I ordered the pasta with carbonara sauce: It was excellent. Don't remember... More

We were a group of 11 friends and could enjoy the dinner in a pleasant atmosphere. Timely served by careful staff, we had the classic "jewish artichocke", the fried flower of pumpkins and cod followed by many "Romanesque" pastas: amatriciana, carbonara, alla vaccinara, cacao e pepe: all excellent!
