We had dinner at the Ristorante Chigi at the beginning of March. The service was very good. The grilled vegetables for antipasti were beautifully fresh. We took the owner's recommendations and had the carbonara and the cacio pepe, both of which were first class. We had a delicious bottle of white wine from a local vineyard. The bread was the... More

We used to love going here for the amazing food. There was always something different and exciting. Unfortunately, they have changed chef and it was disappointing to say the least. The food was ok, simple Roman dishes, but rather overpriced and the desserts just didn't make it. The 'signora' always used to make fabulous sweets that we were looking forward... More

Finding this restaurant after getting lost in the outskirts of Rome was a highlight of our trip to Italy. We happened upon it, and the food was impeccable! Meeting the family (parents and daughter) who owns the restaurant was so fun. We savored every dish in a very relaxing outdoor atmosphere. The owner even shared with us her homemade Fennel... More

To think we almost forgot this place! The food is sublime. We highly recommend the pasta with speck, gorgonzola and walnuts, mind you the truffle sauce pasta was wonderful too. The green pepper fillet - mmmmm and the veal pocket stuffed with artichokes and fennel seed potatoes - equally so. Mamma never fails to hit the spot with the desserts... More

One of the best restaurants I've ever been. The atmosphere reminds you of home away from home. The taste of the interior gives this place an ambiance that is hard to match. Most impressive, of course,the cuisine- you can not go to this place once. You can't!, you will go again, and again. I did!!

Probably the best restaurant in Formello and you don't pay over the odds for some exceptional and unique dishes. We last enjoyed a very lazy dinner here with friends who were all pleasantly surprised at the quality and ambience. The family atmosphere really helps and a walk past the doors early morning catching a smell of the "soffritto" simmering and... More

an excellent meal in friendly family environment that is also extremely sophisticated, with the added advantage of good english. The garden is wonderful for outside summer eating. I've eaten here at every possible occasion during my stay here in Formello and have found an interesting and continually changing menu. FANTASTIC!

I was impressed from the vivid imagination of the cook, which turns every dish into a really pleasant surprise with combinations of first materials that surpassed my gastronomic experience and made me very, very happy and content! This is good. Really good!

I really can't say enough wonderful things about this restaurant. I was in Formello for work for a couple weeks and this was one of the restaurants recommended to us. Ever since my first meal there I haven't really been able to go anywhere else (and when I have wandered into another establishment, I've kicked myself several times for doing... More
