“A Roman Bistro Affair!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

As every “savy” traveller knows that the more interesting places are to be found off the beaten track …

Oratorio is a small comfortable bistro type affair not too far from the Central Termini. The service we received was exemplary as the hosts were very impressively customer friendly and easily encouraged my group to try most items on the menu which made it impossible to choose. The outcome is that we happily and willingly enjoyed a variety of cuisine across starters, main and deserts and concluded with a fine aperitif.

We highly recommend that you visit this establishment at least once, to enjoy the vibes of a cosy establishment , that is well priced but above all gives excellent value on all levels.

“Nice Ambience Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

Just at the end of the road from our Hotel we popped in for a light lunch on arrival in Rome and ended up back there for drinks and food 3 more times in our short 4 day visit! We enjoyed the
easy atmosphere and relaxed service and the waiter Ali was most attentive. We'd certainly recommend Oratorio to anyone staying in the area, for good simple food or just chilling out with a beer ( italian) or a glass of good Vino

“Best waiter I've never seen before,”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

It's a good food, good ambience, but the real difference is the waiter, Ali, from Bangladesh.
He stayed all the time attentive about the satisfaction of the clients and tried to recommend best meals for each taste.
I would return to Observatorio BIstro just because of him

“Amazing cocktails with free food to come with”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

Just wandered around rome and spotted this restaurant with an amazing terrace! Sat down originally for a quick espesso but stayed longer for the wifi and nice environment! I ordered a cocktail -pina colada and it was absolutely delicious, probably best ever! Chatted to the staff and the manager Ali, and they are all very friendly and helpful. I will definitely come back here for coffee and cocktail when i am in roma again!
