“Nice place, ok food, not too friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

We went to the restaurant to celebrate a birthday of one of our relatives. We were recommended by a B&B owner (from Rome) to eat there as it was "value for money and a good local eat." What was good: the bugatini amatriciana, sauteed mussels, spaghetti with Tuna egg (interesting and different), Porcini (was great), Tiramisu. The Bistecca Florentina was not bad as well. So-so dishes: pizza, Carbonara (disappointing for rome), desserts were nothing spectacular (creme brule and pannacotta were forgettable). The bill was very reasonable. Experience was so-so because of the vibe of the place. We came as a group of 16- as our last night in Rome of course we were chatting away and we were immediately silenced by the elderly lady in the restaurant for being too noisy. We off course were thrown off by this but kept quiet nevertheless. Staff was not friendly/ didn't warm up to us at all. From experience, Italian restaurants may have some arrogance as you walk in but by the end of the meal, we would normally have a nice relationship with the people taking care of us. At the end of the dinner, one of the kids knocked a glass down and the same elderly lady who made us keep quiet was clearly annoyed and unhappily (with very unpleasant motions) cleaned up for us even as we cleaned it already for her. The service and unfrendliness for me ruined the overall experience and I would not go back. The food, at the end of the day, was nothing too special given the experience and the vibe of the place. If you are a big group and want to let loose, this is not the place for you. Also it seemed very unfriendly for kids. Maybe their 4 star rating has gone to their heads.

“A gem in Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

We celebrated a family birthday in this small but ever so cosy restaurant a few days ago. Reservation was made by mail 2 months before and everything - but really everything - was as we expected. This family restaurant with its outstanding food is a real gem in Rome. Modest prices and the food quality is beyond expectation. Great antipasti, delicious pasta and please try the bofalina cake, absolutely mouthwatering. The red table wine was great.
I have been coming to Italy for the last 26 years (mostly on business) but this was surely the most delicious evening meal ever had in bella Italia.

“rutic italian”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Spending a few nights in rome and decided to go here, because hotel recommended it. Walk in to a very small restaurant. Sat down and was there a little bit before the woman came over. What i noticed about the menu it was a menu with different items. WE ordered , pasta carbonara, and second courses were suckling pig and veal. food was good,.Dinner was good and nice meal in rome. we ate at different places around rome, and found this place good. Food in rome was very disappointing.and expensive.Guess we are getting spoiled here in the states with all those upscale and farm to table places that are sprouting up.

“Made in Italy :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

After visiting Vatican museums we were really hungry so I found Piacere Molise on TA with good recommendations and we gave it a try, and it was a good decision!
Atmosphere is absolutely Italian with many different details from all over the world. It would be nice to have some classical or any kind of music in the background while having a meal but even without that we had a good time.
Restaurant is family owned so mother and son are in charge for a service and father is in the kitchen and most likely he will personally bring you a dessert if you have one.
We had 3 different pizzas and spaghetti all home made with love and subtlety. The texture was there the taste was there and bottle of house wine round everything up. And dessert was just perfect we had tiramissu and gellato and I still have a taste of it in the back of my brain :)
Be careful not to pass next to it because its not very appealing from outside but as soon as you step inside everything changes.
So for a genuine Italian experience Piacere Molise is a place to be.

“Great Italian dinner at Reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Our family of four just had a very enjoyable dinner at this family owned restaurant. We had an excellent variety of pasta and, fish dinners. The food was excellent and the drinks were reasonably priced. This was the only restsurant in Rome where we paid 2 Euros for a can of Coke - everywhere else was 3 Euros or more! The chef delivers the dinners to your table. They speak very little English, but good food has a universal language. We strongly recommend this restaurant after visting the Vatican Museum or if you are staying at the Best Western Spring House. Multo Buono - Ciao!
