Starter was amazing, eat too much, had steak with walnuts and balsamic Vingear, it was nice, but potatoe had a lot of olive oil. Lamb was very fat & carbonna was very salty.

I stepped in quite early and I didn't want a full meal so I asked for their special starter. Ordering the starter, I asked to the waiting an advice about a first dish but he suggested me to wait as the starter is normally "challenging". Good advice as the starter was excellent and definitely abundant unless you are really hungry.... More

A detour worthy stop. Delicious, inventive, quality ingredients. My husband, son, and I had dinner here and we all raved. The antipasto plate is a must here - a few of the usual inclusions but then a few delightfully delicious surprises: a pot of bufala ricotta, ceci in a cream sauce with truffles. My pasta - ravioli with zucchini flower... More

The menu was mainly Italian and Steak so not much Mediterranean food, but helpfully it was in both English and Italian . The staff were very attentive and friendly. It was busy when we went so I would advise booking a... More

It was a huge surprise. I was invited by my cousin to meet all family and I was surprised with the wonderful food, unique flavors and delicate combination of ingredients ... Superb !!! The craft beer produced by them is the best I tasted in italy. Since 2011 I recommend to all friends and relatives who will visit Rome.

We visited Ara Anua on a cool evening last October and were instantly warmed by our welcome, the charming ambiance and the radiant fire burning in the center of the restaurant. We enjoyed a shared salad, a couple of brilliantly prepared pasta dishes and a wonderful bottle of wine - a perfect meal representative of this charming village so close,... More

Walked in and there was only two other people so ensured service was impeccable. Food was high quality and very reasonably priced in a nice setting. Went for a table near the fire and it was very welcome. Can't recommend enough
