We found this restaurant through a little research and were not disappointed. I stopped by at 7pm to change the day of our reservation, and interrupted the owner during dinner - rather than asking one of his staff to help me, he got up and took care of me himself. The setting is small tables intimately arranged in small rooms. The service is exceptional without being obsequious - water and wine glasses are never empty, dishes seemingly come and go magically and the waiters are friendly and warm even for non-Italian speaking Americans like us. The menu is varied and the food was delicious, and certainly some of the best we have had in Rome. The prices, while high, are reasonable for a restaurant of this caliber and this degree of service. ($325 for 4 people with 1 bottle of wine). Every staffer wished us a Happy New Year on our way out, including the owner, who helped us don our coats.

Rome is a difficult city to dine. Sometimes we weer lucky, sometimes we were disappointed. On our departing day last year we saw this restaurant and noted its good score on tripadvisor. We made a reservation a few weeks ago (just to be sure) and what a great experience it was! Fabulous food, many fried vegetables and my girlfriend was very enthousiastic about the fish choice. Great wine list, but we have chosen for the wine by the glas, which was great too. We really liked it, and will certainly go again when in Rome again. You can not go wrong here.

This place is great. Good people, good prices, great food.
try amatriciana is simply delicious. The restaurant is in Via Ferruccio crossing with via Buonarroti, in the center. Is always full of people and it is better to reserve a table before. The owner and the people working in the restaurant are very nice and welcoming. Specially they are honest and never try to charge more like someone else sometimes do.
I strongly suggest this restaurant

the Vecchia Roma is in a tucked away side street not far from the Campidoglio and the Wedding Cake. in the summer you can eat outside and we have done so and enjoyed it. we went twice in November 2012, once in a party and once just the 2 of us. My wife pointed out that there were more Italians than foreigners eating which must say something.
