Adorable staff, sophisticated tasting menus, and great food and wine choices make this restaurant a beautiful spot in Rome. I definitely recommend the Artigiano Curioso tasting menu, since I liked all the dishes and really appreciated the quality, ingredients, and price. Absolute favorites: calamaro, risotto,...and rabbit. Remarkable benvenuti dello chef. I paired all the food with a Pinot Grigio from their list that was very close to an orange wine (the Ribolla Gialla orange wine must be super interesting too). A small flaw: the service might become a little slow (and stressed/stressful) when the restaurant is full, so I recommend reserving around 7-7.30pm or after 10pm to enjoy the service at its best. Comparable to many Michelin stars in the US, definitely coming back for the 10-surprise-dish chef menu. Well done! 🚀More

Over the years I’ve eaten in many places - good, bad and downright ugly, but have also found some truly inspiring places: not many, but it does occur. This is one of them. From start to finish the meal was a rousing discovery. I enjoyed...some dishes more than others but then again, taste is very subjective. Some Roman dishes with a sophisticated twist, but on the whole, not a place for traditional Roman cuisine - tasty but heavy. Had originally booked the shorter tasting menu, but once I saw the à la carte menu I decided to go it alone, just asking for wine by the glass to complement my choices. Service, friendly, competent, welcoming - actually I should say impeccable. Started with a jerusalem artichoke mousse with smoked porcini and black truffle, followed by tiny raviolis filled with egg yolk that just burst in your mouth with flavour, beef tartar and crispy ham, then guinea fowl in the most exquisite sauce as a main course. To finish I tried the black garlic pudding. Unimagineable! All was served with home baked breads and Normandy butter. Small amuse-bouches on arrival - the marshmallow and pecorino was incredible, and tiny patisserie to finish - just a nibble, but a burst of flavour on the palate. Pricy - I spent 95€, but absolutely worth it. Taking a friend there on Saturday. ‘Nuff said.More

We opted for the €69 tasting menu. It is an experimental selection of dishes that are clearly still in the works, but at such a price point it is quite easy to look past the less refined offerings of one of Rome's finest up and...coming chefs. Dessert is a defining strength of the restaurant (the lightness of the cinnamon apple with cucumber foam provided neccesary relief and was a real highlight), and takes influence across the menu. Whilst it was an unusual and new experience, we found the savoury marshmallow appetiser jarring as an entry into a meal whereas the hazelnut sauce with the duck was an ideal transition into the dessert section of the menu. The egg yolk ravioli was the unanimous favourite and worth coming for this alone. It was closely followed by the rabbit with Jerusalem artichoke (only slightly let down by the small portion of ice cream, more is needed to keep the flavour throughout). The risotto itself was cooked to perfection, a real treat. It was dressed with four sauces but told by server to eat them separately - this was made impossible by the Pollock-esque presentation. The flavours didn't correspond with each other well and conflicted the palette into too many directions. In this case, less would have been more (just the burnt orange and cuttlefish would have been ideal). Our main niggle was the use of sea urchin across back to back dishes (as a sauce on the risotto and then as ice cream with the cod fillet). As delicious as it was, it is a strong flavour that cancels out others and we felt it homogenised the dishes, and would have appreciated a break between. The food is only a few touches away from being a worthy Michelin Star contender. Service perhaps a little further off - there were irregular waits between courses but this didn't bother us beyond having to chase our server down if we needed something. Noticing empty / near empty wine glasses would be helped by more regular visits to the table. We raised that one member of our party's cod fillet was substantially undercooked relative to the others. Server looked shocked but did not attempt to resolve the issue (the transparent window view of the kitchen made this evident).More

Went there for dinner with friends on Thursday night. Great atmosphere when you walk in that set the scene immediately on a minimalist balance between Europe and Far East with mise en place that reminds of Japan. Went for Full Degustation Menu. Asked for a...change and was kindly accommodated. Same as for wine recommendation when I asked for a full menu single bottle. The full menu is a proper high quality experience from pre starter to patisserie at the end. The whole menu is an equilibrium between sweet/acid, cold/warm, crispy/soft Three things deserve a special note: raviolo al tuorlo d uovo, coniglio al topinambur and impepata di cozze. All shows perfect balance of taste. I left with a question: what do they need for a Michelin star ? Tiny little things on service ( e.g. all dishes at table served together). Bravo chef ! Keep it up. You have a great future ahead.More

Having cancelled one reservation due to personal reasons we finally managed to come to Rome and this experience was one of few we were waiting for. Andrea and his Team did not disappoint. They delivered 2 outstanding degustation menus personalized to my husbands and mine...(pregnant) tastes. Highly recommend to anyone who treats food as an experience. Thank you Guys for this amazing evening, we will remember it for a very long time😊More

Do not try this out if you’re not ready to experience some unusual flavors and textures. If you are, this restaurant offers highly innovative dishes, often including raw components, that will offer an exceptional culinary experience.

We made a reservation based on the Michelin Guide’s recommendation. We ordered the tasting menu and pretty much sat down with great wine to expecting to be wowed. Very creative dishes, unexpected ingredients and great presentation made for a great meal. The only real drawback...was that the timing of each of the ten different small dishes was uneven and generally slow causing the meal to become more of an ordeal than enjoyment. We politely raised our “complaint” and nothing was done not even acknowledged by the chef who was around. Tempo, tempo, tempo.More
