“Mediocre and overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Nice atmosphere, but the sauce for the cacio and pepe pasta was gloppy and tasteless, and two plates of this pasta, an unimpressive meat/cheese appetizer plate and a bottle of house wine came to 65 Euro. I find this steep. Most of the locals ordered from the pizza menu (which was not offered to us).

“Great food great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The homemade pasta dishes at the Trattoria were great. My wife had cannelloni and I had a pasta dish with ham and vegetables. The dishes were of a good size and value. The wine was also good as was the assorted brushetta.

“Falcone in the town of Tivoli: Perfect Service, Excellent Food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

No one is more gracious that the people running Antica Trattoria Il Falcone. They are helpful and efficient and kind without being intrusive. The food is wonderful. The tiramisu is at least as good as the best I have had in Italy. The roasted vegetables are just the right degree of doneness and cooked with a light touch of flavorful olive oil. The ricotta & spinach raviolo is wonderful. The cuisine is typical of the area and just right for combining with a trip to Villa D'Este, which is about a 5 minute walk away.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We stopped for lunch, and returned in the evening for pizza. Lunch was good. Pasta with sauces using fresh produce, nice flavor and good service. The evening pizza was not the greatest. Dessert was good

“Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Would recommend this restaurant. We had the meat carpaccio and a white and red pizza. Good food and not expensive.
