“Il Winebar - a jewel off the beaten track”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

When we told some friends about planning to go to Rome we got a recommendation to come to this restaurant. Not quite in the touristic area of Rome, but well worth the effort of going there. In fact... After enjoying too much of Rome's Gelateria's, :-D we decided to walk there, because we wanted to walk through Trastavere anyway. After walking for a while we were actually doubting whether or not we were in the right area. The area looked a bit industrial, and when we finally arrived at the 'Citta del Gusto' (the building this restaurant is housed in) we really doubted if it was the right place. We pressed on nevertheless and we were very glad that we did. After taking the elevator to the top-floor we were pleasantly surprised. Especially the view from the outer rooftop area of the restaurant was a nice panorama of Rome, unlike we had seen before in any other spots of Rome. And the brilliant food and wine kept us entertained for a long time. Thanks to the weather we were able to sit outside for the entire dinner, which added to the atmosphere.

All in all a very nice place which is not yet too familiar with tourists, which is a shame, because it is definately worth a visit, but on the other hand it might make it even more attractive to visitors, since you don't get the crowds you sometimes get in the bustling city center.

“Food matches the view”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We dined here as part of a large group, with a set menu. While many venues tend to drop service or quality in that situation, Il Winebar did not. Staff were very professional but also warm and friendly; the food was lovely and the salmon main was especially good, if a little small. Diners with food intolerances were generously and appropriately catered for, and the arrival of other large groups did not appear to have an adverse impact on our experience, nor that of smaller parties near us. The rooftop setting gave wide views over Rome and the spacious seating both indoors and out added to the feeling of relaxation and calm. Lovely.

“Excellent service and food”

We organized a small wedding reception (25 people) and both the service and the food were excellent. I highly recommend the Winebar for its cozy and elegant atmosphere

“OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! Chocolate cake......................”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

A wonderful experience. Pleasant outdoor dining with attentive waiters.
Excellent food and reasonable prices. I actually returned one of my dishes as it wasn't appropriate and there were no questions asked, a new dish was brought and we were not charged.
THEN to dessert..................I left a very happy lady ;-)
