Our travelling party of 4 had a flavorful meal which did not include pasta dishes. The grilled lamb chops perfect, sea beam with wonderful potatoes and sizzling sliced steak, delicious. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. Our server Serda made the evening delivering tiramisu with lemoncello shots for all while singing happy birthday. Something he will never forget, thank you... More

Such a cute little restaurant in a side and quiet courtyard. Recommend a reservation as they were packed from open to close. Excellent food and best Bruschetta I have ever had. The staff is wonderful and warm and start you off with Prosecco.

Just around the corner from our hotel - a bit hidden, this is a real gem. Try to get seat outside on the patio. Very nice. Had some wonderful fish and pasta dishes. Great wine list - but thought the house bianca wine was just so-so. Actually tried to come back for lunch another day of our stay (great 15... More

Had ravioli that was so overcooked it had to re pried off the plate with a knife. I should have sent it back and walked out. Wife had steak that was chewy and flavorless. Receptionist couldn't care less.

This restaurant was recommended to me and we booked a table for 4 at 9pm. Unfortunately when we got there, no tables free. We stood around outside waiting like spare parts until a waiter came across at 9:25 with a glass of Prosecco each, we were now spare parts but with booze at this stage! We got our table 35... More

We booked a table on tripadvisor and we had 20% discount. It s a lovely place away from the noise, took us a bit to find it but we didn't regret. For seafood lovers that's the perfect place. We loved the seafood soup and pasta with pesto and prawns. They are having lots of delicious things in the menu and... More

I was brought here by friends who are regulars, so I expected great things! But I was soon to be disappointed. As I'm coeliac I have to eat a gluten free diet, but Italy is great for this, so I don't think it normally impacts much on my choices of food. I chose the caprese salad as a starter -... More

We were staying very close to this restaurant which is in a quiet back street not far from the Pantheon and we stumbled across it when too tired to walk further. The staff were helpful and welcoming and the food was the best we had in Rome. The tuna was lightly seared and divine, the rack of lamb was also... More

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
