“Our favorite restaurant in Rome”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We went here based on TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant but it boils down to delicious food and superb service. I got the risotto with shrimp and cream and my boyfriend got the sea bass with tomatoes and potatoes. It was the best meal of a two week trip in Italy and we went back a few nights later and ordered the same thing! It was just as excellent. After both dinners we were offered free limoncello and after the second dinner the staff even gave us a free bottle of wine out of their cellar. Oh and the tiramisu was out of this world. Go and go often!!

“Excellent service at a reasonable price.”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

My boyfriend and I happened upon Tema by accident when the strap of my sandal broke a few metres from their door. Not wanting to walk further we decided to try our luck. We were very pleasantly surprised. The setting is very elegantly minimalistic. Having not looked at the menu before being seated, we were half expecting the prices to be extortionate, but were relieved to find they were within our price range. The staff were very friendly, taking their time with us. We ordered bruschetta made with fresh basil and very red, ripe tomatoes. I ordered Linguine Putanesca made very simply with cherry tomatoes, olives and capers, and the flavour was amazing. My boyfriend ordered grilled steak which was done exactly the way he liked it. For dessert the waiter recommended a white chocolate baba with crumbled amaretti biscuit and a cannolo. Both were delicious, especially the baba. The bill came to a very reasonable 50€ and I would happily recommend Tema to anyone.

“Excellent find”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Picked this from TA. Sure, our lack of Italian didn't help but the proprietor spoke fluent English. Good choice of food. Not expensive. Nice atmosphere, but not full. A series of small rooms meant ours, which was the furthest from the door was a little sterile but the service was attentive and the right speed. Well worth another visit. Try it. It was a good night out.
