After a tour at Vatican museums its worth to walk a couple of blocks north to avoid those tourist menu places. Terno Secco offers Roman kitchen with good pride. Pizzas at dinner and good lunch options.

Terno Secco has a welcoming atmosphere and homey Italian decor, and sports a wall of photos of famous people who endorse it, but the food is the best of all. My ravioli with ricotta and spinach was to die for, and no, I'm not exaggerating. Everything was homemade, and the sauce was a perfect blend of tomatoes and cream. From... More

Back to Rome again after three years, and back at Terno Secco. This time we went with another couple and we were very happy to see that the place was run by the same family. And can you believe they actually recognized us. We had a selection of appetizer including prosciutto di Parma mozzarella di bufala then we had the... More

House wine 5 per glass. Mixed fried squid and prawn including 1(one) prawn 15 euro. One lasagne minus meat 9.5 euro. Service charge 8 euros. Total for a rubbish meal 68 euro. Glad we don't have to go back. Mediocre food at top price.

The idea is that the restaurant is traditional. But they smack you a "s" (for service) out of the blue. Be aware! Food was all right. Pizza ok. Still, don't think they know their game.

On the way to the rugby international we found this family run restaurant. The owner suggested a mix of dishes for our party of 8 so we sampled many of their delicious dishes. The service was excellent.

Overall bad experience. Hotel recommended and it was raining so this close restaurant was easy choice. Besides the pasta(which is pretty much decent everywhere in Rome), everything tasted like it was out of a freezer. The antipasti buffet was cold and soggy. Prices weren't too high but should have been lower for serving such low quality. Service was a little... More

Place was recommended by the hotel. We noted that TripAdvisor reviews varied from love to hate, but took the chance. Got a table for 6 and had a nice meal. Only locals except us. Intense service and recommendations. That's why some like it and some hate it. If you play along it gets good, if you start to resist and... More
