“It has it all: Terrific food, sweet service, and honest value!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

This gem would be a shame to miss if you are interested in wonderful Roman-style dishes capturing the essence of fresh, local ingredients, all offered at very fair prices. It might seem odd that the chef is Japanese, but it is a blessing because he builds on both traditions, never losing the Italian core, but adding a light touch: white asparagus with a light white freshly shaved summer truffles sauce, squid-ink pasta with a delicate seafood ragu, tempura-style fried calimari. After a week of eating in more famous and aclaimed restaurants with startlingly high prices, Pacioccne, as it's name suggests, was "easy going" pleasure, pure & simple.

“One of the best italian restaurant in rome”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Some italian restaurants in Rome are so expensive in spite of not good. However this restaurant is very good and reasonable price. The chef is Japanese, but he understands Italian foods and tries the fusion Japanese and Italian. The access to go to this restaurant is easy from center of rome. If you use No,8 tram from Piazza venezia, the new starting station of No,8 tram, you can reach there in 15 min throught the Trastevere zone.

“Just good food - recommended”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

One of the gems you can find via TripAdvisor. We stayed nearby and found this with help of the app, otherwise we would not have stumbled upon it. Had the menu of the day, very good, would have returned if we stayed longer.

“So Good!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We were blown away with how good the food was! The chef is young, Japanese, and seriously talented! Half of the fun is knowing that although the restaurant serves delicious Italian food, it is run and operated by Japanese nationals. The service is excellent as well. Very courteous and friendly.
