Great local food

Great fungi porcinI. Good service, friendly atmosphere. Typical roman menu. Excellent pasta. Interesting clientele. Great for people watching. We all had a very good meal. Slightly expensive but worth it. Go for a bottle of wine , rather than the house carafe

A wonderful, classic meal in a 'room' (more like a grotto) dating back as far as the 9th century. Truly great food, excellent service and a remarkable setting with warm ambiance. Definitely an occasion to remember - and only 40 kms from Fiumicino!

this was my second time at this restaurant (the first was a year ago). my expectations were crazy high based on my last meal here; but there is no disappointment possible at this restaurant. every aspect -- the decor, the service, and especially the food -- are incomparable.

I had the opportunity to be there several times on the past 11 years, and the quality and taste is very consistent. The owners are really nice people and they are always please to serve the guests. You have to try all the house products, Wine, Olive oil, Liquor, etc... The must is the strawberry tiramisu on this picture...

Best restaurant in Castelli Romani area. This area is well known in Italy for being the food and beverage district of Roma inter land. This restaurant mix the excellence of services with local food. Services is great. Style of taverna is nice. Go there for dinner if you are in Rome. It deserve a visit!

Have been coming to this restaurant for 30 years. Ambiance is amazing, the setting and warm and welcoming. Food consistent and delicious, don't miss the pasta sampler. I recommend this place constantly and has never disappointed. Consider this place for lunch as it might be a little heavy for dinner at times. It's worth the drive is your staying in... More

We had an extraordinarily good time there. The ambiance of this restaurant is great: Stone walls, a few big Roman lights, lots of flowers and plants, a few atntiques, makes you feel like in an ancient albergo. There are several connected areas on two levels. We saw only locals there, and elegant ones. We had a wonderful roast maialino (suckling... More

It was my good fortune that we were staying at the boutique hotel next door and had my dinner at the wonderful restaurant. The food was full of flavour and tasted authentic. The atmosphere was nicely decorated and the service was professional. Good food good service and nice place to eat . Thank you.

We were recommended this place by the owner of the B&B where we stayed. It's a cosy, rustique-style decorated restaurant where they serve excellent food. I followed the advice of the owner and took the tris di pasta as starter. In fact, it proved to be four pasta dishes and so the trend for our evening was set: H.U.G.E portions.... More

We were staying at the hotel next door and as this was a Saturday night we decided to eat here as reservations in Grottaferrata were hard to come by. We were initially seated on a joint table with another couple but when the head waiter saw our discomfort (they were pretty scruffy and a bit smelly.. sorry) we got moved... More
