very disappointed indeed. There was no music on at all for a start, so ourselves and the other couple across the room could just hear each others conversations. We decided what we wanted from the menu but the waiter was across the room facing away...from us for a full ten minutes Before he remembered to come back. Asked for a coke light but received a normal coke. Asked for pizza without mushroom but recieved a pizza containing mushrooms. Pizza itself was not nice, much like one we would buy in a shop at home. Finally when asked for the bill, the waiter stood next to me as I got my wallett out, which was very rude and as a result I didn’t leave a tip ( not that I would have left much anyway!) Gutted that we wasted one of four nights in Rome in this place .More

I went here on a colleagues recommendation and was very disappointed by my dish. I ordered spaghetti with zucchini, mushrooms and mussels. The whole dish was slimy, I didn’t see any zucchini and the mussels were cold and chewy. The staff was super friendly and...I felt bad for sending back an almost untouched pasta.More

We were a table of nine for dinner at the Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto) in Rome just after Christmas last year. The restaurant came recommended by a patron, so we were eager to try it out. We had some difficulty making a booking as they...were closed over the Christmas break. However, we did eventually make a booking after the Christmas break and believe me, it was well worth the wait! With dietary restrictions for three guests, the menu provided several choices for all. Two of us choose the lasagne which was delicious and the Turbot Fish dish was I'm told, to die for. The person who ordered it could not stop talking about it. The waiter was also very happy to debone the fish so as to make it convenient to eat. Had we had the time we would have returned to dine there before departing the eternal city! All in all the menu, the wine list and the service was excellent!!More

Grotta appears to attract locals as well as tourists, and it was a good choice. The place is attractive, informal, and friendly. My swordfish was great; my companion's turbot very good. Prices seemed comparable to other restaurants of this type, in the name area

The gnocchi here put every other gnocchi I've ever had to shame. The service was very accommodating—they didn't make a fuss when we asked them to open a window—and the price was great.

I had prosciutto with fresh baked foccacia which was warm and wonderful! They didn't have what I wanted on the menu, so I asked and they prepared it! And excellent dish of spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce and basil! We had an excellent red wine--Valpoicella!...It was only about 30 EurosMore

On the occasion of the 25 years of the actual property (last september 25th) we (me and my friends) could not miss the peculiar menu wonderful fish menu at a very good price. Seven appetizers that were really complete dishes and one dish that they...called "primo", a lobster with spaghetti sauce. Great mistake the name, the half lobster everywhere would have been called a main dish. But they're young, only 25, me I'm 77, so they'll grow up. I hope them success, but, please, modify the menu and call the lobster a main dish and not a "primo".More

At the recommendation of our Local Host we ate this restaurant while waiting for our hotel to be ready. It is a clean nice place. The pizza was good and the risotto was tasty even though the rice was slightly undercooked for risotto.

Food was okay.... not raving about it and won’t be going back. We had bruschetta to start and it was just a slice of toasted bread although the olive one was okay - not disappointing.. main was lasagne which was okay, and the other main...was pasta with sea bass. Just a little sea bass mixed into a barely there watery tomato sauce. Wine was nice. Waiter was a misery!More

Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is
a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every
shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and
gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,
