“Great meat dishes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

A cosy restaurant in a quiet street! We dined here the first evening in Rome and it was a place we will come back to! The meat dishes were perfect! Cosy atmosphere and nice waiter!

“Awful experience, slow and over priced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Just arrived in Monti area, I went with a friend to 19 Al thinking the cute façade would represent a nice culinary experience in Rome. How wrong! We waited almost 45min (!) for a plate of passable meat (for me) and almost raw veal that my friend who was not able to finish. The side dish (artichoke…and I mean one piece) was outrageously charged 6,00Euro. The comic part arrived when we had to wait for the owner to pay the bill as he was outside…in another restaurant…guess we will do the same next time…we will pick another one!

“The best in the area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Rome is beautiful but ... no service , all restaurants serves only pasta and pizza !!! very not easy to find good fresh fish , sea food restaurant.
When you are coming from London you like to try something more then pizza!!
Sure we can recomend Al 19 Trattoria , fresh , good food for the price.
2 smily waiters was very helpful and with excellent service.Restaurant was full a lot of variety of food and wine to choose.
Baby squid and octopus carppaccio was delicious! We will recomend this friendly restaurant for all out friends.
Well done !

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012 via mobile

Very nice place. The two young guys were running it when we went. Both friendly and helpful. We had swordfish and ravioli with seafood. Both very good. Chocolate cake was amazing. Overall nice feel to the place. It was our last restaurant in Rome and I was happy with my last meal there.

“Service and food below the standards”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

I visited the Trattoria al 19 because it was one of the few open restaurants after 14:30 in the street. However, after the experience, I would have not minded if it had been close.
The waiters were slow and not specially friendly. We ordered easy pasta dishes, but the quality was quite below expected. I can not recommend such place; there are many other good alternatives around!
