This is a nice looking restaurant, rather upscale compared to its neighbors. The restaurant we planned to go to was closed so we tried this one on the spur of the moment. Because we had no reservations, we were sat indoors, which is totally understandable. Then nothing. We sat for 20+ minutes with service personnel going by frequently, yet none... More

There is no option of giving 10 stars else we would have given that...we ordered the baked sea bass with cherry tomatoes and olives and baked potato... And we absolutely loved it... This was our discovery in Rome... And we also loved the house wine (white)... Most importantly, we found smiling staff here... This is a rare breed in Italy... More

We had a lovely dinner and we're lucky to reserve a table outside. This restaurant is situated in a cute side street and has a lot of ambiance! We ordered the dishes suggested to us by the friendly waiter, which was a honey, cheese and walnut platter for a started & Truffle pasta and Truffle steak for our dinner. The... More

First off, the waitress was superfriendly so the service in it self was not bad. Just that the whole experience took extremely long. From we sat down until we left it had taken 2,5 hours to get and eat our food. The food was good but not spectacular, not sure if it was worth the price range which is kinda... More

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 was our most disappointing meal in Rome in spite of previous positive reviews. The service was extremely slow. After over 1 hour, one in our party got food, which he finished before anyone else received food. One of us got the saltimbocca long before the potatoes to go with it came, and the meat was cold. This potatoe was,... More
