Went to the restaurant on a recommendation from a friend in San Antonio and then found out that the location was in the square that our friend from Rome loved the most. A great combination for a wonderful evening. The food was quite good, not the best we had in Italy but when you include the ambiance it is well worth the visit. Be prepared that it has the highest cover charge per person we encountered on our trip, but again - $ 8 per person to sit in an ideal spot including the tip in my opinion is a bargain

After a long flight we arrived in Rome for our 4th trip to the Eternal City. We were able to enjoy a leisurely lunch in one of our favorite piazzas in Rome. We had the Buffalo Mozzarella and Prosciutto carved table-side as antipasti. We enjoyed the Spaghetti alla carbonara made with guanciale rather than panchetta. The guanciale was so crisp and the sauce creamy and eggy served along with fresh pasta... Very good to say the very least. The Spaghetti alle vongole made with fresh pasta and sweet tiny clams was full of salty goodness. Both pastas were wonderful. It was a little expensive with the service charge to sit outside on the piazza but we would go back in a heartbeat.

Dined here on a glorious evening. Lovely outlook over the square. The wait staff were very efficient and friendly. We had bruschetta which was lovely,then I had the veal cotelleta alla Milanese which was lovely but my husband had the veal escalope with lemon which was absolutely sensational,the best meal he had in Rome . Señor Sabatini still serves in the restaurant and I told him how much we enjoyed our meal, he was really lovely and obviously delighted. We intended to return but alas couldn't hopefully on our next visit to Rome . Sabatinis is not cheap but you get what you pay for and the service is impeccable.

If you like to people watch while enjoying a meal this is a great place. The food was good. I had the seafood risotto. It was very rich, but nice. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful.
