Based on friends suggestions we did preordered a table. Were seated on second floor. Couple tables were empty, but when we left the house we realized that ground floor was packed. On that day it was not a day for waiter, he was trying so hard to light up a fireplace, but he succeeded only in smoking us. Friendly atmosphere,... More

We had a delicious meal here -- everything was incredibly fresh. The ambiance of the restaurant is rustic and fun, and there are cool tunnels to explore underneath the restaurants.

Very much enjoyed this one. Restaurant has been there for 55 years but the building is 1400 years old. Great interior and food.

Taverna dello Spuntino is such a charming restaurant with great atmosphere. We were surrounded by local families speaking Italian, who had lively conversations with the owner as he visited each table. The food was delicious, especially the tiramisu. It was so fresh and they had three different flavors - orange/chocolate, strawberry, and traditional. I don't think I'll ever have tiramisu... More

We walked into this lovely restaurant and sensed this would be a memorable meal. The decor was wonderful, with attractive brick, but what set it apart was the use of fruit (grapes as a canterpiece on our table), food, copper utensils and wine bottles for decoration. The service was warm, with little english but we communicated. Nice wine list and... More

We lived in Grottaferrata for 2 years in 2000-02 and this became our favourite posh option. The reception and the owner/head guy is always very welcoming even with kids (then they were 0-4, now they are 11-19). It is in brick lined alcoves with its own set of ancient tunnels. The food is beautiful and lots of it. My favourite... More

You have to visit - this is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Visually arresting and wonderful food. We've been a few times now and it's always great.

If you ever make it here, don't leave without seeing the underground ancient cellar that goes for miles... You can also have a lovely set up there for dinner with candles lights: very romantic! Amazing food, very well presented and executed. They also have a small hotel (locanda) next door which is very posh and pricey but completely worth for... More
