Our cooking, inspired by the best traditional Sardinian recipes, is carefully perfected in all details, from the creation to the presentation of the dish. An elegant atmosphere is enriched by efficient service and theflavors of Sardinia found in all of our dishes- from the appetizers to the desserts and the best seasonal wines. The many choices of seafood are all fresh, caught everyday and always different.

“Una dell'ottima ristorante di pesce- rivisitata”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

We first visited this ristorante a year ago and our memories of it were that it was very special. Some people say you should never go back because they fear the reality will never be as good as the memory. We went back to Eleonora D'Arborea and the reality was just as good as the memory. The antipasta di casa was as spectacular as ever and was so ample that we had only a sorbetta or a gelato to follow although i camarieri made sure that we had their complimentary torti and choice of digestivi to go with our wonderful caffe'. We had tonno marinato among the dishes that I have never seen elsewhere and the pane sardo -carasan with olio d'olivo ruined my diet because I could not resist it. Looking around, there were very few empty seats and the majority of the diners were romani ; I would think that most of the clientele came originally by word of mouth recommendation and came back for more. Il proprietario was ever present meeting and greeting and one had no doubt that he ensured that no-one would ever have reason to be unhappy with the food or service if he had anything to do with it and I find it incredible that there have been the very rare examples of unhappy guests. We can speak highly enough of il ristorante,i camarieri, il cibo and especially il proprietario. Give yourself a treat and go, not for a meal, but for an unforgettable experience.

The food was delicious and at a reasonable price,the staff courteous,polite and friendly. Visit the website and make a reservation ahead of your visit as it was a very busy and obviously popular restaurant for city visitors and locals alike.

“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

We visited this restaurant because of the excellent reviews we read and they werent wrong! Definitely one of the best meals we have ever eaten. The whole evening was perfect from start to finish. The level of service was superb with lots of little complimentary touches such as bubbly on arrival and liqueurs afterwards. Although a little more expensive than other places it was still excellent value for money and cannot recommend highly enough. For a special meal in Rome it is the place to go.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

WOW .....
This restaurant will satisfie those with even the most fastidious tastes!! We had an unforgettable experience of exotic, fabulous cuisine, with a triumph of flavors that will make this restaurant a must for anyone who goes to ROME !! Thanks to our friends who highly recommended trying and a very enthusiastic cab driver that confirmed that the locals " LOVE this place". Their were so many choices of restaurants and so much to explore when in Roma, with never enough time .... definetly make time !!
Even the staff, obviously composed of veterans, were in perfect harmony !!
We travel alot and taking the time to acknowledge a phenomenal, authentic experience should be shared with everyone - which speaks for itself !!
We dressed comfortably & treated like Royalty! The atmosphere in this place is full of love and elegance !! You will truly miss out if you don't put this on your intinerary, get in a taxi or walk, but you must GO !!! Ristorante Eleonora D'Arborea 5 star in every aspect!! Delicioso, relaxing, authentic, elegant and affordable !!! Oh yeah , I won't forget the 50 yr old Grappa or the Sea Urchin - both a first for me ... Dave, I owe you a Grappa from that bottle, our next trip to ROME ... because we will be going back !!!!

“Thank you for a wonderful evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

We would like to thank the staff of Ristorante Eleonora D'Arborea for their part in making a very important evening, much more memorable.
As our eldest daughter had recently become engaged to man from Rome, we decided to take a trip to meet his family. My daughter chose this restaurant having never been there. She was nervous about the decision since she said that food and meals are very important to her future family and she wanted our family to make a good impression. And what an impression we made!
As soon as we came in, the staff took our coats, and showed us to our table.
We spent a wonderful evening trying new types and ways of making seafood, getting to know our daughter's new family, and evening trying our hand at a little bit of Italian (after a couple bottles of wine!!)
The seafood was AMAZING, the wine was a perfect compliment and the service was friendly and informative. Our waiter, Irio, a Sardinian guy, was the perfect guide to our dinner, explaining the traditions of the island and the dishes.
My husband and I were a bit worried about the final bill as our party was large, but we were very happily surprised when we saw it. Sure, it wasn't cheap, but we were happy to pay a very reasonable price for the experience, the atmosphere, the wonderful, unique food and a very special memorable evening that I'm sure would not have been as nice anywhere else.
We can't wait to come back!
