Food was pretty good at a decent price (120 Euro for 4 including 3 bottles of wine - yes it was a Saturday night :) ).. Good service and decent menu.. The Oxtail was fantastic.. simple in a tomato and... More

I tried this restaurante while I was in Rome for the weekend in between business trips. It is a very pleasant restaurant, it seemed to me like a family owned business. The staff was very nice and helpful. Not a very touristic restaurant what I found fantastic, although there were quite a few tourists. The food was good, I ate... More

We ate here in our last night in Rome. We were heading for another restaurant but they were booked up and Thank God they were! We found this beautiful little restaurant with amazing food, great service and good prices! Came away with a full belly and a happy last night! Highly recommended!

This was our first pasta stop in Rome and it was absolutely delicious. My husband had the lasagna, which has some of the freshest cheese possible. I had the Arrabiata which was the perfect amount of spice and the pasta was perfect. Make sure you arrive early or put in a reservation because they do fill up quickly.

We came across this place because of the good reviews and we were not disappointed. Good food for little money. We both had (simple) starters, main dish, dessert, beer, wine and coffee - for only €30 in total. Great food for the price and service is quick and friendly!

We ate here on the last night of our stay in Rome. The title of the review says it all, but we had, half a carafe of wine, water, bread, veal and chips, seafood spaghetti, tiramisu, and two coffees for 41 euros. The food and service were both excellent. We'd highly recommend.

We visited Dodo Ristorante on our way to visit the Colloseum in the evening. We decided to eat here as it had indoor eating and wanted to sit inside even though it had room outside. We chose a menu for 13.50 Euro meal. I had bruschetta with tomato, followed by spaghetti bolognese, followed by chocolate cake. My husband had roast... More

I'm not sure why exactly, but it felt very homelike. There are tables outside separated by some plants from a quiet street. Food is great and not expensive, staff - very worm, good house vine. All in all from my trip I liked this restaurant the most.

Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets.
