We were recommended this restaurant by friends, so had to try it. We met them there and were not disappointed! Booking online was easy and we were welcomed on the evening with a small glass of prosecco. Lovely menu, relaxed atmosphere and very friendly / attentive staff. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We walked the area looking for an open table and decided upon RLT48 based on reviews. We chose the bruschetta and burrata cheese appetizers to start. The bruschetta was decent. However the burrata was a solid brick, it should have been labeled regular mozzarella. For our main courses we chose two pasta dishes, the pesto linguini and the spaghetti with... More

Would not recommend this at all. The food was good however, the service was so extremely poor that it is not good enough to wait 45 mins (after sitting down at the table) to order a drink. We were afraid the waitress wasn't going to come back so we ordered our entire meal with our drinks. Waited almost an hour... More

One of the best restaurants we ate at in Rome. The food was excellent, the waitress was fantastic and fun, and even helped us learn some Italian. Highly recommend getting the tiramisu for dessert, and the house wine

This is a very small and cosy restaurant which is hard to stumble upon. I read about it on TripAdvisor and decided to go with my and another family, in total 4 adults and 4 kids. We didn't make a reservation but the staff made an effort to fit us in, and did it with a smile. The waitresses were... More

Great food, service and wine. We stumbled across it and just managed to get a table that wasn't reserved but, unless you're there early, make a reservation. The price is reasonable and the quality high.

After 2 weeks in Italy eating at reasonably priced restaurants, this place far exceeded any expectations we had. One of the best meals we have ever shared.

I booked this restaurant via trip advisor and I'm glad to say it didn't disappoint. Our table was waiting on arrival in the quiet side street. The menu was vast and authentic. The wine was very well priced and service was brilliant. I only wish we had had time to go back again during our trip.

In part this review is influenced by the amazing seafood we just had in Amalfi. For a relatively affordable seafood heavy place in Rome, it is good to very good. But just not at the same level. I did enjoy the octopus salad very much; the tuna tartare was good; and the cheese plate interesting (loved the bufala blue). The... More

We ate here on our last night in Rome. My husband got the lobster ravioli and I got one of the specials with red prawns. They also greet you with prosecco, which is great! Awesome service and fabulous food!
