I have been few days ago to get my lunch with my girlfriend. The place is clean, hospitable, we met professional staff and superb roman food. Price according to the category. We don't drink wine, but we saw a well furnished wine list. The place is more used by local people rather than tourists.

Excellent food, cooked in a traditional way, using excellent quality materials. Please add english menus or english speaking waiters, so as to assist us to order more comfortably and enjoy more dishes.

My family was so fortunate to be invited by a true Roman family to experience this gem! This is by far one of my favourite restaurants I have ever been to! I kept my mouth shut and asked the host to order for me. I certainly wasn't disappointed! Not a tourist in site. Just perfect.

After reading all of the reviews here, my husband and I were excited to experience Il Caminetto, which was a 15 minute stroll from our hotel (Hilton Garden Inn Claridge). What a disappointment. The service was unwelcoming. The waiters seemed annoyed that we did not speak Italian very well. They were scarcley available to take our order, explain the specials... More

We visited this restaurant following a top from our limo driver. It was fully booked on the first evening and so we booked for the following night. No menu was available in English and we were worried about struggling trough but we didn't need to be. Then entered the fantastic Tony, grey haired with glasses who would remind you of... More

It's always a pleasure to share dinner with friend. It is even a moment of joy when it comes to spice it with food that tasty. The meat is delicious and the wine suggested has match the food perfectly. Just a little expensive, but definitely worth it!

It's the place where I love to dine when I comeback in my hometown Rome.The place is nice and the food is good,but you go there for the people since it's located in the more wealthy neighborhood of Rome:Parioli!!A must

Close to our hotel was the reason for our 1st visit. This is not a tourist venue, but an Italian restaurant, run by Italians for Italians. We were the only foreigners there and had the most fantastic experience. We were very well looked after by Tony and the food and wine were just perfect. We chose to eat there on... More

We were dining 4 night in a row in Rome and we were following the recommendations given by local friends. Il Caminetto outscored all other recommended restaurants in terms of service, food quality and presentation. None of the rest could even compare to this restaurant. The house wine was Nobile de Montepulciano and it was one of the best that... More

slightly away from the busy and crowded Rome, experiment this excellent restaurant, full of small rooms linked by corridors. You'll be served very good traditional food by nice and efficient waiters!
