“Real cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

In the Via Veneto area, not all food is equal. Although located in a basement, Lo Stil Novo exhales subdued elegance with walls in venitian plaster and travertine. But more importantly, it is the home of a real chef who does serious cuisine and masters the art of revisiting traditional italian dishes. With an obvious mastery of ingredients and a flair for unusual and innovative combinations, this chef should deserve praise. The sommelier is most helpful and the wine list does include interesting finds at reasonable prices. Service is gracious and the atmosphere overall totally relaxed. This restaurant should be filled every night: at about 120 Euros for two with a a first quality bottle of wine and an amarone grappa, you can hardly find better in the entire area unless glitz and overcooked buccatine all'amatriciana is what you fancy.

“The real italian restaurent where the price is right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

I came to Rome in search for Italy restaurent. I went to Cafe Veneto around the street and got a total rip off. 100 Euro for absolutely something not eatable.

THEN I search for Italian restaurent on the net which is close to where we are. Lo Stil Novo is what I found. Fabulous food at half price of the rif off restaurent on the street.

Highly recommend to anyone who want REAL italian food. The service is great. The place is luxury. Most important the food is fabulous.

“truly fine dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Sophisticated cuisine served meticulously, they definetly know how to combine various textures and tastes. Very helpful and friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, live music (piano). Would be great if they had a garden or a great view out of the window in addition it all that, but their atmosphere has its own charm which is just perfect for a romantic evening for 2

“Enjoyable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We came across this restaurant in Tripadvisor, and loved it so much. The food was delicious and service outstanding. Staff was friendly and willing to help with any advice. Between all other restaurants in Rome this one has really good price/quality relationship and 100% worthy to visit.

“A perfect place to relax in Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

The ambiance, the food and the people who serve you are refined and tasteful. Apart from their regular menu they have a choice of vegetarian plates. It was a wonderful experience to be here. We especially recommend Lo Stil Novo to people who appreciate a certain distinguished atmosphere. From Holland, Louise.
