I admit it freely and proudly… I’m a food snob. I spent my 20’s backpacking around the world eating weird and wonderful things; my 30’s learning the difference between good and indifferent food; and now that I’m in my 40’s I see no reason why I should have to inflict my taste buds with badly cooked, badly presented, boring food....

This review is somewhat tardy but because we're certain that the owner/chef is still the same, hopefully no harm has been done. I don't recall exactly where I learned of this restaurant but we're glad we had the chance to visit here because we feel that it was the best meal of our 40th wedding anniversary trip to Rome and...

When you arrive in Tivoli you don't expect to have a meal at stared restaurant level. In Rome and nearby generally restaurnt choose to serve classic or popular italian dishes which makes you get bored after 4 or 5 times. In Avec 55 we were lucky to find a free place without reservation. I suggest making reservations. After getting seats... More

A tiny restaurant, hidden brilliant gem! Place is very stylish and and food is nothing short of awesome. Meny was in italy, but chef explained everything happily, and in overall feeling of service was more like as we were dinging at our friend than in restaurant. Food itself was very very good, fine dining sort of (not that good country... More

My husband and I had a delightful meal on a quite Thursday evening. We were made to feel very welcome with the chef helping us to understand the menu as our Italian sadly isn't that good. You had a real sense that the chef really cared about the quality and presentation and we had a really delightful meal. Look for... More

Had a great meal here with my husband's parents on a chilly Sunday night..even though it was very quiet the chef/owner and lovely lady running front of house made us feel so welcome - the food was great, the feeling was fun and inclusive with such helpful descriptions - my inlaws are semi vegetarian and really appreciated the explanations and...

Visited here after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. Tucked away in a side street, this tiny restaurant is a real find. It was very quiet on the Wed night we visited - just one other table. The owner/chef was really attentive and rushed over with two appetisers - one a savoury creme brulee and another mini rabbit burger! The food... More

I wanted to avoid all of the typical tourist places and have a memorable meal, and that is exactly what happened. This restaurant is hands down the best place that I ate in during my three nights in the city. They serve dinner only, and you must have a reservation. The food is wonderful and beautifully presented, the service is... More

This is a fantastic hidden jewel. I haven't had such a superb meal in years. Lots of courses, all light as a feather, so you don't feel bloated at the end, and served with perfect wines. I think the chef deserves a Michelin star or two!! (We were there to celebrate my brother's 60th birthday and I don't know how... More
