Had dinner here during my honeymoon. Compared to the other michelin 1-star restaurants I've eaten at, Pipero al Rex was one of the more intimate: ~8-10 tables or so. The food is unique, imaginative, and absolutely delicious. The wine pairings were amazing; some of them...More

Lovely 'special occasion' dinner for two. We had the tasting menu, which was excellent throughout, and perfect length/extent for a satisfying meal. The food is very interesting, without falling into the trap of being too weird just for the sake of being weird. Service is...More

The excitement and standard set for this place is probably to high. If one goes to Michelin approved restaurant you think it cannot go wrong. It can, if you dine at Pipero al Rex. I will not go into details and list all the points:...More

I dined at the restaurant the night before my wedding with my fiance and our parents. It's a lovely restaurant, competently run, with competent and almost interesting food, but when you're looking for a special meal on a special night to remember, this is not...More

My husband and I recently returned from Rome where we ate at several Michelin star restaurants. This one was our least favorite. The food was fine, but nothing special. The Carbonara at Roscioli is much better (although the ambiance is horrible there) if you are...More

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Wine pairing with the tasting menu was on par and course size was ample. The only thing that felt off putting was the expert after the meal. When the waiter brought the check, he said that...More

Before getting to the review, let me set the expectations straight. This is a one star Michelin restaurant so you know you will get great food. But there is a difference between very good food and excellent food. And personally, I do think Pipero falls...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
