“Excellent service and even better food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

The food is savory and filling. Authentic, fresh, well-priced - it is near the Basilica of St. Maria Maggiore, so it's close enough to be convenient for travelers.

Just off the M train, L'Europeo is tourist-friendly (Andreas speaks English and the menu is in five languages), without being too touristy.

The owner, Andreas, is very nice. He talked to us about the history of this place. His grandfather built this restaurant in 1951. He was eager to guide us to our next site.

Excellent place to eat. I highly recommend L'Europeo!

“Better choose other restaurant..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

I could not say that food was really bad, but according other places in Rome - it's bellow average. Pasta was just ordinary and sea bass also not the best. Of course we didn't try other dishes, hopefully thy are better. The service was also average.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Sat outside on a chilly November evening. They had heaters going and it was so romantically comfortable!! Had their fire roasted pizza and house white wine that was outstanding. Service was slow but whose wants to rush eating outside in Rome with your husband!!

“Nicely priced slice of Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

This was the first restaurant we visited in Italy and we chose this as our hotel was nearby. We think we chose well. The ambiance was homely, the décor clean and humble, and the wait staff pleasant and attentive. The pasta and meat dishes we chose were an affordable introduction to Italian cuisine and the desserts delicious.

“Very small portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

The portions are very small, the prices although normal... People at the table next to us made long faces when they saw the small portions. Open all day. Quite noisy and cramped.
