Gorgeous little restaurant in a bustling little street. The food was quite nice but a little bland. Not offered parmigiana salt pepper which made a difference when asked for. Rabbit was really good. Beef salad was more beef than salad but nice. No outstanding flavours...More

We were looking for a famous pasta place in this neighborhood, turned out it is only take-away place and we found this place by accident. It's quite a find. The service was very personable and attentive. Unlike the normal pasta which is made of wheat,...More

Let's get real here: authentic, organic (or, "bio") ingredients deserve a premium. This restaurant uses fine ingredients, and as such it makes sense for them to charge more. What is not fine is the tiny portions they serve, coupled with tastes that aren't all that...More

We were happy we went to eat here. The pasta was phenomenal, and the salad, meat and vegetables were good too. This is a lively and popular restaurant with some innovative dishes and new twists.

We had a pizza in this restaurant near Pratello, near closing time but service has been very friendly and professional nevertheless. I don't usually bother trying funny doughs for pizza, but they are amazing at making a perfect pizza dough with lots of different flours!...More

We went here merely due to the fact it was very busy outside and the menu looked good. We ordered the courgette flowers, expecting them to be cooked (as we normally have them)- we received 3 tiny, uncooked courgette flowers stuffed with minimal ricotta for...More

Quality of the raw ingredients, peculiarity of the food and overall taste amazed me. I perceived a will to experiment mixing and matching flavours with very positive results. Bread especially, was amazing. The portions were normal and we spend around 60 euros for a lunch...More

Nice and friendly staff. My wife and i took vegan dishes (maltagliati, fiori di zucca and mopur) and they were tasty and creative. My friends had parmigiana and chicken and they were satisfied with the choice. Good white house wine and nice desserts.

The service was friendly and they changed the wine we didn't like with no fuss. The rabbit was good but needed a garnish. The tagliatelle with veg was good. But the velutata was tasteless; the pork dry; the duck breast was OK. All needed more...More

The Rovescio was born out of paradox which became our philosophy: we do not source our produce based on the menu, but instead we build the menu around what produce is available at each time of the year, based on the offerings of our small-scale, local producers.
