Good food, grumpy service steep prices

This time it was much better because I was with an Italian who is known there. He is five star but the restaurant only merits three, not because the food isn't good but because it is poor value. The service was attentive if unsmiling and the food excellent. The prosciutto ham was superb, very good... read more

This is a first class restaurant, with top quality food, a friendly and relaxed atmosphere with a lot of space between tables, friendly and helpful service and a varied and interesting menu. The bollito misto is a speciality, and well worth having.

To start, I have never experienced service so bad in my life, the staff was outright rude and dismissive. They did not bring us bread, even when asked for, while every other table was served bread upon their arrival. When I asked for water the waiter made eye contact, turned around and left, only to return 10 minutes later with... More

We had lunch here on the recommendation of our concierge. The experience was very disappointing, primarily due to the two-tiers of service, where locals/Italians get much better service compared to non-Italian speakers. First, our waiter couldn't be bothered to bring the amuse bouches to our table, though we noticed certain tables around us were promptly served generous plates of small... More

On our third day in Rome we came to Dal Bolognese. We found a great restaurant in the Piazza del Popollo! Do not miss the bolognese dishes - with the home made pasta. And the disserts. Service was also great. Fast and friendly! Do not miss. Reserve ahead.

A traditional restaurant in Rome-style, no frills, no design, no tricks: you get what you see, and that is excellent. We tried Bollito Misto (fantastic looking and tasting), Guancia (you seldom get that in a restaurant nowadays), Tagliata di tonno and..... Taglierini al Tartufo. Simply excellent. Nice but not insisting or noisy service. Just great. (Interesting and very rich wine... More

This restaurant has an excellent location directly on the Piazza del Popolo. It offers very fine formal dining. We enjoyed our meal, but truthfully we have eaten just as well at the better Italian restaurants in Los Angeles.

A great discovery in an unlikely place. One might think this was a tourist attraction...wrong! Very local...local regular customers...even a dog under the table...(cute). Food was great, service good. ambiance wonderful(local flavor with men dressed in suits as one would expect of local businessmen)

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
