“Very nice meal with friendly service”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We came here because of the TripAdvisor reviews and the location, close to where we are staying. We both had the fennel salad (very fresh, and refreshing with the citrus), and then one of us had grilled orata, and the other baccala. Both were absolutely first-rate, and seafood is often the truest test of a restaurant. Because I have read reviews here of restaurants that take advantage of tourists, I will note that I asked the host for his recommendation between the baccala and the grilled veal, which was more expensive. He didn't hesitate to recommend the less expensive baccala. For contorni, we shared simple grilled vegetables (nice but not special), and a steamed cauliflower with olive oil that was exceptional given its simplicity. For dessert we shared a millefoglia. The pastry and cream were excellent, but I found the raspberry sauce too sweet and too much. The staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating.

“The perfect Christmas Eve”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We've decided to have our Christmas Eve dinner in Marco G restaurant and it was a good idea. The atmosphere was great, food delicious( the pumpkin ravioli was amazing) and the service was excellent. I'm definitely coming back to Marco G next time I visit Rome.

“great deal! wonderful food! very friendly and honest people!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

We spend the christmas eve (24.12.12) at marco G and it was a fantastic evening at a great location in Trastevere! The story goes: we called the restaurant to ask if they are open on christmas eve and not only that they had, but marco G send us the special christmas menu via email within 5 minutes, so that we could decide about if we wanted to make a reservation. We did - and just can say: We are so glad that we did! The dishes were really fantastic (with a little downgrade only for the lamb which was to dry and with lots of bones). The good wine was good and filled in all the time (think we drank a whole bottle each), they gave us 2 limoncelli each for free and so on... And all that for 45 Euro per person for a marvellous christmas dinner !!! - never seen before and after that in rome! Just great and worth every Euro!
It is a real bargain for this high quality of food! We highly recommend this restaurant to everybody who does not want to be cheated again in rome and wants to have a warm and friendly atmosphere! It is a very distinguished place!
Thank you very much Marco G, be sure that we will come back and tell lots of friends about your place in Trastevere!

“Huge disappointment”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

A friendly greeting and an interesting menu, but the actual food was a huge letdown. Bruschetta depends on flavoursome tomatoes but these were dull. We ordered porchetta, with happy memories of tasty porchetta in Tuscany, but we got thin slices of pink meat with soft (not crispy) skin and not much taste. We were too polite to complain, as we should have done.

Dear Traveller, everytime i’m not able to please somebody, i really feel sorry. But then I say to myself: Marco, it is impossible to please everybody and I keep on trying to do my best. I hope to welcome you back and to be able to make you happy. For sure, your point of view will help me to try to improve. Best regards, Marco G
