Loved the chalkboard menu. Staff were friendly and able to describe each of the choices in detail. The linguini with shrimps and crabs were great. Don't forget to get a glass of wine with the pasta.

We had the octopus and cabbage roll appetizers and the salmon and tuna entrees for lunch. One of the best lunches in three weeks in Italy. Out of the way but worth it to find flute the food!

I stumbled upon this place on my way back to my apartment. It is well decorated and inviting. I decided to get coffee. The service is amazing. Everyone is very attentive and I was brought a glass of water without asking for one, that is rare in Europe. I came back with my friend the following day for dinner. I... More

We ate here on the recommendation of a tour guide from the Vatican, so were hoping for the best (and prepared for the worst). Luckily the guide was right - the food was great. Lovely, simple authentic Roman food. Well cooked and nicely presented. The service was good but there was a mixup in our orders at first. This was... More

Probably the best pasta I have had in Rome. I liked the atmosphere and light music was perfect for a late afternoon. Our waiter was very nice, and so good looking, that I would go back there in any minute.

I visited this bistro as my first choice restaurant was closed on Sunday. I was extremely impressed with the staff who were attentive and took the time to explain all the specials on the board to us in English. For roughly 40 Euros each we both had a 3 course meal (see my photos) and a bottle of prosecco. I... More

A lovely resteraunt with great service. Not your typical traditional italian, the food is more seafood based but absolutely amazing! For under 40 euro we had bruschetta, a pasta dish and salmon covered in pistachio with a vegetable mix and it was cooked perfectly and a freshly made chocolate fondant. Quality was superb, we will be going back.

Is it okay to say I'm a little suspicious of some of these reviews? Visited on a Saturday evening and certainly didn't need a reservation, looking around I think the few other customers were tourists using TripAdvisor like us. Food was nice enough, no complaints, but really doesn't live up to these amazing reviews. It's very adequate, pleasant food but... More

Very pleased with our experience here as a couple and we enjoyed a starter, main, 2 sides and a bottle of wine for under €70. We enjoyed a starter and asked for just one as we wanted to share and it arrived out halved on separate plates which was excellent. I then enjoyed the fillet steak with grilled veg and... More

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
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, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
