This place has a serious attitude problem. The were very difficult to make a reservation and insisted we get there right on time. We did, and proceeded to get the worst table in the basement with one tiny window. I felt like I was in jail. Ugh! No charm- and even the truffles and porcinis that we were looking forward... More

Small, quiet restaurant specializing in dishes with truffles. Better to have a reservation, because eager for a good meal is not missing. Professional service. Strongly recommend!

Prices were pretty similar to other locations with similar items. We ordered more then we have anywhere else, as it seemed better. We have been searching for rissoto but hadn't seen it at very many places. We tried it at one other place but were underwhelmed. Here they had several, and we got 2, one black truffle and one gorgonzola.... More

The crostini is to die for, lasagna is yummy and the black truffle fettuccine blows away!We've ordered the house prosecco and it was million times better then what you get in m&s! The only thing that might ruin ur diner is... More

A bit of internet research for a top quality Lasagna in Rome led us to this place. We turned up at opening time on Saturday but it was fully booked, so secured a reservation for the Monday instead. The food was great quality all round, from the mini appetiser, to the bruschetta starters, the black truffle lasagna of course, and... More

Terrible experience. The owner apparently canceled our reservation before we got there and then promptly showed us the emails he sent us to confirm the reservation. The place wasn't even crowded and he wouldn't seat us.

The restaurant is always crowded for our good fortune, and every day we receive many bookings. Our tables always have a book .Many customers like them, do not book you remember the time and come to any time.Il Ours is a small restaurant and be precise in bookings is very important. More

Fantastic food and really nice waiters. They book up quick so get in early so as not to miss. We had the dried beef and the aubergine parmesan (special menu) followed by the black truffle lasagne and the black truffle and king prawn risotto (special menu). They were all excellent. We shared a tiramisu which was the best we have... More

We went to this local place for dinner. Since we ate downstairs like basement it was a little bit noisy. However, the food was delicious and unique.-aubergine, black truffle lasagne and homemade pasta with mushrooms. If you want truffle, you should visit!

I highly recommend this restaurant, food and service was excellent!! We had a delicious meal of several courses and desserts that were fabulous. We were seated at an outdoor table in a location with very little traffic and great ambiance. Both the waiters and the manager went out of their way to make it a special evening.
