My friends and I ate here on our first day from what we read in Rick S.s Book. The restaurant is very good but not what he described. It has a nice menu and the food was very good. The best part of this restaurant is that the manager speaks English and is very accommodating to guest. Even though they... More

I wanted to experience some good home style Italian food-just by chance we decided to go in for something to eat since our hotel Embassy was across the street. I was very happy with my choice-yes decor is authentic italian-family owned-father and son serving with wife in kitchen helping/supervising. Must have-vegetable soup-any pasta/lasagna dish, fish and beef best taste during... More

Giovanni's is the place to go for food in Rome. Giovanni was there and gave us a complimentary glass of Proscecco. The food was the best we had in Rome. There were 7 of us and we had plenty of room. The staff was friendly and service excellent.

We ate here our last night in Rome at the recommendation of our hotel. It has been around since 1948 and is excellent. The service was great, food was delicious and the prices were very reasonable. My husband said it reminded him of his grandmother's kitchen--very homey. We had a great meal and enjoyed the staff and the ambience.

Rick Steve's highly recommended this restaurant. The ambience was great and the service courteous. The house red wine was quite good along with the bread. However the food was C+ or B -. The Caprese salad had not ripe tomatoes and 2 pasta dishes were dry and not very tasty. The mushrooms in one dish seemed like canned mushrooms. We... More

Went here twice while in Rome. The food is nice in particular the Lasagna and Dumplings. Near the Vatican so handy if walking back towards the city

This informal family-owned restaurant was very relaxing, the food was outstanding and the house wine just fine.

As usual we were wandering about looking for good restaurants. Went past this restaurant several times. This time we thought we will give it a go. It was a good decision. We enjoyed our food and the service was fantastic. We had a chicken dish with peppers, Saltimbocca, pasta with black peppers and gricia and pudding was tiramusu. Food tasted... More

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighborhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 8pm.
