“going gourmet off the Campo di Fiori”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

This was one of our top 3 meals in Italy and we went to a lot of very good restaurants. this is a 2 minute walk from Campo di Fiori but a long way from the the tourist restaurants of the Campo. If you like fresh fish presented with creativity and great taste, you have to go here. the four of us went there on Sept 23, 2013 for an 8 pm reservation. We were the only people in the restaurant. Obviously the service was great, but it like having your own gourmet chef. All the dishes were very tasty and presented in a beautiful and creative fashion. Before I left home, I researched TA and booked this one due to it's rating and proximity to our hotel. We were not disappointed. definitely one of the highlight meals of the trip.

“Oh gusto mio!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely love the place, in a tinny street off Campo del Fiori. Sensus is a smart place that services artfully presented dishes made from fresh high quality ingredients. The service is provided by the owner who is very nice and attentive to all your needs, furthermore, he likes to talk about food and wine.
As a starter we shared the "famous" grilled octopus with a hint of lemon, ravioli with ricotta. For a main course my son had tuna ( first time in Italy we got tenderly cooked tuna) and I had some white fish. The cheesecake was above praise.
Of cause, we tried the in-house limoncello.
Overall, we spent a great heart warming evening at this place.

“Fabulous Restaurant Close to Tourist Area”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Sensus is like most classic non-tourist restaurant in that it does not open until 7:30PM. As noted by others, it's close to Campo de Fiori. Simply put-fabulous service and food. Best meal of the week. Not typical tourist food. Excellent grilled octopus with a hint of lemon; wonderful pasta dishes; beautiful shrimp that tastes like the ocean; fabulous fish. Owner is there and providing attention and service. Even gave us a taste of his own limoncello made by his family. Would definitely go back if in Rome. Worth taking your time to find it.

“Exquisite”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Far and away best restaurant we've had anywhere in Italy. Neighborhood, locals-only place but they were most welcoming and friendly to the English speakers. Freshest ingredients, sophisticated preparation, delicate flavors. Fantastic wine list. Reasonable price for such high quality. Went at end of July 2 days before holiday closing- owner on vacation until end of August.
