“Sadly disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We went with great expectations but were, unfortunately, disappointed. We informed our server that this meal would be our last in Italy, and a celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary. We were willing to pull out all the stops to have a truly memorable meal. Our server took no interest in making our meal special. We asked for suggestions and she merely referred us back to the menu. The food was sadly forgettable. On the positive side, we truly appreciated the ease with which we could order gluten-free dishes. But I would not wish to dine there again.

“A great choice: super gluten free food and super helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We had a very enjoyable meal here a few weeks back during a family break to Rome.
We chose to book a meal here based on the very positive reviews and a need for one of our party to have a gluten fee meal. Right from our very enthusiastic and personal welcome through to our departure everything was just perfect. Traveling with a coeliac is often daunting but the staff put us at our ease from the start bringing out gluten free bread and bruschetta and ensuring that everything gluten free was easily identified on the plates. All of the food was very well prepared and everything that we had from the menu was delicious; the desserts were particularly so.
Overall, we could not fault II Vaiggio and we would soundly recommend a visit.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This was a break from the usual Rome fare. We weren't sat outdoors, the decor was modern and different and the menu was surprising. My father in law had the fish (apologies I'm not sure which fish dish) and said it was the best he'd ever had!
The staff were polite and there were a number of locals in which speaks volumes. The portions weren't huge for Rome but it's a good idea to leave room for the tasty desserts!

“Good food and ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Excellent, good value meal in a very pleasing modern ambience. It was full of Italians when I was there - always a good sign when the locals choose to eat in a restaurant as they want fantastic quality and a good price. Staff spoke good English and were helpful but not over-bearing. I will eat here again.

“Modern restaurant, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Pleasant restaurant, swordfish of my daughter was excellent, my meat was ok, great desserts. Only tensely polite waitress was a bit annoying, other staff were very nice.
