We went there on a whim, but man this place is great. Definitely a modern take on Italian traditions, with a farm-to-table outtook, reasonable prices, amazing wine list and an insanely knowledgeable staff. Sit at the second bar inside and let the bartender guide you...More

Stopped here for lunch after an exhausting and overcrowded Vatican tour. It is nearby, but away from the crowds, a great place to sit and have a bite to eat. One of my favorite items was the Trappizino,a small triangular pocket sandwich with your choice...More

It was recommended by guides but we were disappointed: Started too salty and chewy. Same for pasta and not a taste so great I would come a second time. My wife took tartare, but it was cooked?! As for the service, they served “free” appetizers/tapas:...More

If you like ham and cheese, with good wines at reasonable prices and good advice from friendly waiters, and from your table neighbors as well, this is definitely THE place

This a fun restaurant. A Thursday night in Rome and the outside of the restaurant is jammed with people enjoying light snacks, drinking and engaging in lively conversation. Inside, the tables are filled with diners and wait staff rushing about. The atmosphere is cozy and...More

If you really enjoy to eat meat which melts in your mouth and this with a good glass of wine you have to go there! But be in time if you haven’t made a reservation, because it’s well-known by the locals. Very friendly service too!

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,

Hi! Sorry for my late answer. I am not 100% sure, but don’t think they had pizza. Lots of other great dishes though:)

Hello Stacey, as they don't accept e-mails, you will have to telephone them - perhaps your concierge can do this for you?. However if you wish to call them; here is an example "Desidero effetuare una prenotazione alle ore... More
