“Very good meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in today for lunch and had a very good meal. The gnocchi and cacio e pepe were very tasty. We also had fried olives and artichokes. Only gripe is the place is small and can be crowded.
This is my second visit in the past 3 years and I would return again if in the area.

“So delicious (not a "tourist restaurant")”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

So glad that this restaurant was recommended to us by a local while we were visiting Rome (as he told us, this is not a "tourist restaurant"). Tasty food, and very reasonably priced. Their Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe was amazing. Their staff didn't speak English, but their menu items are listed in several languages so ordering wasn't a problem. The restaurant is a little bit out of the way, but worth the effort to find. We were lucky to get a table both times as nearly all of them were reserved. Probably would be a good idea to make reservations beforehand.

“Don't miss this wonderful restaurant near the Vatican”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

My family and I found Ristochicco through other TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. If you are anywhere near the Vatican, we suggest you make plans to eat here! One of the owners, Alexander, greeted everyone who entered (even the many people who had to be turned away because the place was full), and Maria was an excellent host and server. We enjoyed one of the best meals we've ever had while traveling! The food was amazing, and the attention to detail and care for the guest was obvious. We will always fondly remember that wonderful meal. If you can't be there at 7:00 pm when they open, we suggest making a reservation.

“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

We visited on saturday, and cannot praise it enough. The service was good, staff very friendly. The menu choice and food was excellent with good value for money. The best restaurant we visited in Rome! Make sure to book because it is very popular with locals and tourists. Next time were in Rome we will be back!
