We went to Ad Hoc during the truffle season and had a variety of the truffle dishes. Everything was delicious, without exception, and beautifully presented. The restaurant is cosy and has a warm, yet sophisticated atmosphere. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Do book well in advance though as they were fully booked for 3 weeks when we went - luckily we had booked!

I booked this restaurant before I arrived in Rome as wanted somewhere special to take my boyfriend for his 30th Birthday. They made us feel very welcome and put in extra effort to make our evening special. We were greeted with a pre-dinner glass of sparkling wine and a delicate appetiser.We had the Cubed “Carbonara” Tasting of three different kinds of carbonara for main, followed by the Tiramisu, which was really tasty. As I had told the restaurant about my boyfriend's 30th birthday, they brought his dessert out with a candle and sang Happy Birthday, which was really sweet.

Thank you!

Had a really good meal here. I recommend it if you would like something special. The wine waitress was particularly good and very knowledgable.

The only restaurant we have eaten in where the waitress took order for seven of us (starters and mains) without writing the order down and got it absolutely right. Delicious, creative food with good portion sizes. Very knowledgable sommelier who seriously knows her stuff. Amazing selection of wine. Highly recommended and also in central location.

My wife picked this restaurant to celebrate my 50th birthday from Trip Advisor, we weren't disappointed!
We picked the wine inclusive truffle menu and had more than we could eat or drink. A different wine with every course and a birthday cake brought to the table by all the staff.
A very special meal to mark a special occasion.
Our waiter Andrea looked after us brilliantly in our own private booth!
Many thanks and we will come back one day when we net Coe to Rome!X
