We stayed at the Hotel Artorius on this street and went to 4 restaurants on the block. This was one of the best. We walked in without a reservation at 9:00 on a Sunday night but they seate us quickly. The service was a little slow but there seemed to be only one wautress and she was run off her feet, but we weren't in a rush. The menu was a little different. We shared an appetizer plate of rolled eggplant, what looked like a tamale and smoked salmon rolled around buffalo cheese which was very good. My husband had the spagghetti and I had the carbonara which were both excellent. The house wine was good as well. Of the 4 restaurants we went too on the block this was one of the most reasonable and the food was great. There were lots of locals. I would certainly return but I would reserve and go a little earlier next time.

This is a pretentious restaurant, which does not deliver. Service is good but the quality of the food is just average. And it's also way over priced: nine euro for a plate of grilled vegetables is really too much. We had visited the restaurant about five months ago and we noticed a marked decline in quality and an increase in price.

We ate here on our first evening in Rome and it was a wonderful start to the holiday. The facade is open and welcoming, and the waitress was great - very friendly. There were many things we would have liked to order, but loved the choices that we made. The food was fresh, delicious and was served very quickly. The ambiance was great, a good mix of tourists and locals. This wasn't fine dining, but was excellent Roman specialties. The wine that the waitress recommended was delicious and great value. If this was our local neighbourhood restaurant. we'd definitely be regulars.

A cosy restaurant in a quiet street! We dined here the first evening in Rome and it was a place we will come back to! The meat dishes were perfect! Cosy atmosphere and nice waiter!

Just arrived in Monti area, I went with a friend to 19 Al thinking the cute façade would represent a nice culinary experience in Rome. How wrong! We waited almost 45min (!) for a plate of passable meat (for me) and almost raw veal that my friend who was not able to finish. The side dish (artichoke…and I mean one piece) was outrageously charged 6,00Euro. The comic part arrived when we had to wait for the owner to pay the bill as he was outside…in another restaurant…guess we will do the same next time…we will pick another one!
