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

We are in Rome for four days and discovered this little gem yesterday, our second last day, and went back this evening for our final meal before leaving for home early tomorrow. Beautiful food, reasonable prices, a lovely ambiance and the staff are charming. Highly recommended.

We wanted a nice place to sit down to dine, and found this one. The service was good, I tried to order a carbonara with broccoli, but they said it was not the season, and offered one with asparges instead, and it was delicious, especially the bacon! The bacon was very good, and I really recommend it. The price was... More

First of all I'm not sure why this restaurant has received such great reviews, because they are not realistic. When we just arrived in Rome and checked TripAdvisor, we chose this restaurant. This was a big mistake from the beginning to the end. I must say we were very hungry, so we were going to have a good lunch. When... 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.
