Firstly, this restaurant has changed hands and has been renamed "Il Giardino Segreto" (The Secret Garden). It is located at the end of a side street just off Via Panisperna, only a short walk from Santa Maria Maggiore, but slightly awayfrom the main tourist area. From the street you go down a series of internal stairs and emerge into a paved garden with the major part set with tables under a canvas roof with wooden walls, either side of this are several external tables. Our visit was at lunchtime and we opted for the €15 set menu, from which we had a good antipasto, a first course of delicious pasta carbonara (dripping in butter and the pasta was al dente). Second course we chose pork in peppers. The set menu offerered a choice of three dishes for each course and the main menu, of course, offered a wide choice - but all very traditional Roman cuisine. Staff could not have been more attentive and helpful, despite limited English (and our even more limited Italian). Only criticism is that house wines were a bit basic for our taste. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I recently spent a long weekend in Rome and on our last night we decided not eat near the tourist attractions but near our hotel. After a short walk we came across Amore Mio and we are so glad we did. It was an excellent end to an very nice weekend break in a very friendly and cultural city. The staff were very friendly, the restaurant was very comfortable in and unusual setting, but this added to it's charm. Most importantly the food was excellent, very imaginative and the dishes had a modern feel to them. The presentation was eye catching and the house wine devine. If your looking for an superb meal away from the crowds and at very good prices please take your time to look this restaurant up.
