A Hidden Gem

Returned here after maybe ten years. It hasn't changed and is still a charming hidden gem. We had to be brief as it was a very quick business lunch. The rabbit "Primi" was absolutely delicious. I only wish we could have had more time or returned for dinner. The restaurant /wine bar is in an... read more

We had visited this restaurant/wine bar a couple of weeks ago for lunch and had only ordered appetizers which were all excellent. This time we had dinner there on a busy Friday night and once again everything was superb. We ordered a few of the appetizers we had ordered for lunch: the veal meat balls and the fried stuffed anchovies.... More

We stopped in for drinks, and has such good service and great wine, that we decided that on our way back from Tuscany we would come for supper. Our second time was just as great! Ask for Mario's wine recommendations, he's the one with the mustache, he's great! The combination with the food was perfect, and everything was delicious.

Excellent food And perfect service. The wine list is so complete, so many choices. Wéve been there twice. I really recommand it. It's a little bit expensive, depending on your wine bottle.

Very pleasant find, lovely wine and nibbles, good way to relax after a very hectic day sight seeing, friendly staff, can sit either outside with high chairs and wine barrels as the table - very novel.

I would totally recommend this place, no tourist trap, expect I would be a regular visitor if I lived in Rome. This is a welcome rest from the sun and spent a good hour with a plate of cheese and meats. Fabulous place. Please go there!

Enoteca del Frate was recommended by our hotel receptionist. Only a few hundred metres from the Vatican, we ordered a glass of wine from their excellent selection (it's a wine shop with floor to ceiling shelves) and sat outside on high stools around a barrel to watch the world go by. They were almost too generous with the crisps/nuts/snacks so... More

We stopped here for aperitif before going on to dine somewhere else and initially ,on reading the very interesting menu , decided to reserve a table for the following evening . HOWEVER ! although the lady who served us our drinks was charming and the wine good ( but not exceptional ) , the olives,nuts and crisps provided were all... More

Del Frate was recommended by the Telegraph travel app. We were very pleased to have gone there. We liked the choices offered on the menu (so many places all offered the same things) and the choice of wines was amazing! We both had three courses and a good bottle of Italian wine. Everything was good quality and the bill was... 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.
