“Love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

My husband and I stayed in Rome for 5 nights and we ate dinner at this restaurant 3 times. The food was so good and the prices so reasonable we could hardly force ourselves to go anywhere else and when we did, we regretted it. You will love this place, family owned and in business for around 100 years! When you visit, you will understand why they have been able to stay in business for that long with so much competition. It seemed like much of the family worked there and took tremendous pride in everything from the service to the ingredients of the food. Amazing! Make reservations and go; you will love it.

“Went twice in 3 days ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The title says it all! The atmosphere, food, service and value was outstanding at La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali. I have a wine allergy and the staff bent over backwards to accommodate me. There was a gnocchi dish that I wanted so badly but it had wine ... so the owner customized it for me by substituting an out-of-this-world pesto sauce instead. I just can't say enough about this lovely restaurant. If it were closer to home we'd be there every week.

“Great restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a great dinner at La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali -- probably the best meal we had during our trip to Rome. It's a really nice atmosphere and didn't feel touristy at all. The pasta was delicious. The waitstaff were also very friendly and happy to explain different items on the menu. Even though it located close to the Forum, its a little hidden. After dinner we really enjoyed walking up the via Madonna dei Monti along the narrow cobblestone street. This place books up fast, so reservations for dinner are definitely needed.

“Just like family...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We have eaten at this restaurant many times, and rave about the atmosphere. Last visit we were welcomed by the owner and shown our table. Our group of nine chatted over what to order, and selected a variety of options with a little hep from our server, who also made recommendations which were not on the menu. She has a friendly way of steering you in the right direction. Upon our departure, we said our goodbyes, one table had finished singing happy birthday, the owner, this time holding a little toddler while bantering with his guest. See you soon!

“Great lunch in a very authentic ristorante”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We had a great lunch here after seeing the Colesseum. It's location is a bit hidden but its good reputation is well known because we were lucky to get in for lunch since it quickly filled up and others were turned away. Very delicious food and friendly waitstaff. Make reservations in advance for dinner.
