“Great spot in busy area, very good meal and wine selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

The enoteca promotes wines and products from the Lazio region of Italy, as such the wine list is great and offers many options to try that you would not find elsewhere. Wine prices, especially for Rome, are incredibly reasonable.

The food was lovely - we had a gnocchi ragu and the pasta with cacio e pepe (a traditional pecorino cheese and pepper pasta dish of this region), both were delicious. We probably should have had a snack/aperitivo and then just the pasta dishes as mains, and would do this next time - as we went for pasta as primi and then mains, and we could not finish the latter. They were nice but we enjoyed the pasta dishes more. I tried the tripe which will not be for everyone, but was well cooked, tender and tasty with tomato and some mint. My husband had a sausage dish with broccoli (it came with spinach though! Not sure if a translation error or just that they ran out), which he just thought had a bit too much meat and was rather large with just the 2 ingredients. No room for desert sadly as they looked great!

Staff were helpful and professional, some spoke more English than others which is completely reasonable, and it was easy to order and make ourselves understood. There is an English menu. We had a booking and would recommend this, as at least in the evening they were turning people away.

Our bill was just over 60 Euro for 2 pasta dishes, 2 mains, one mineral water, one bottle of wine - very good value for the quality, amount, and for that area of Rome.

We would definitely go back (and leave more room for desert!).

“A little refinement in the tourist precinct”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

The food and wine are the attractions here.

A menu that makes a decision problematic--a downside of travelling solo, you do not get to taste as much ~

Floor staff friendly and informative.
The so called maitre d' needs to learn how to smile and engage his guests, notably international ones.
Enjoyed my dinner, even if a little rushed but a solo diner 'wastes' a chair….

“Just go there!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

I stumbled on this place - we were staying round the corner. These people take their food seriously all from Lazio, amazing wine list, very local. There were few (if any) other tourists there either time I went

The baccala was great. The contorni ( vegetable sides) are really clean and tasty. They do a classic pasta cacio e pepe and my son had a gnocchi which he loved.
