On our first night in Rome we picked this restaurant as it had such good reviews & we weren't let down! We sat outside which was nice (inside was fully booked).

The wine list was extensive and had many delights. Cocktails were also available and the Bellini was devine.

I had the Parma ham with melon and my partner had a cheese stuffed thing both of which were lovely. The pizza with potatoes on was so moreish for main and the lasagne was great too!

Definitely worth a visit and worthy of its such high ranking in restaurants of Rome! Would go again in a heart beat as so many tempting things on the menu!

We ate only seafood, all in all five courses plus dessert. The seafood was very good, made using a simple but very tasteful way. We were a company of 20 people. The service was very good. Although I have allergies to shellfish, but got my own very tasty dish as a substitute for the lobster. The selection of wines was great, the ones we chose were excellent.

After researching for places to eat in Rome we booked this one based on reviews and the atmosphere.

Located near Spanish Steps it was a good location for us and we ended up sitting outside as weather was nice.

Food was very good, service good and very reasonable prices for dinner with a bottle of wine; it was a great first night in Rome.

One of the more touristy places to dine at, but we received a very warm welcome from the owner. We decided to have the four-course tasting menu "lobster" which in fact more of a seafood menu (pasta course includes lobster). Price for that menu is 60 Euro including wine pairing. Very good antipasti (smoked swordfish and salmon, sea bass carpaccio). Pasta with tomatoes and lobster was a little tricky to eat as lobster had shells still attached but was cut into pieces which resulted in parts of the shells distributed among the noodles. Oven baked sea bass was a rather plain but nevertheless tasty main course. Dessert was again on the more simple side but tasteful. Surprisingly, all water was included and we were also given a limoncello on the house. The accompanying wines were tasteful. Overall solid experience in a tourist hot spot only a couple of steps from Spagna away. Possible alternative is "Ad hoc", see my other review.

Excellent personal service by owners and wait staff, small rooms with nice decor, excellent menu with modern twist. Truffle tasting menu was outstanding and the wine pairing was excellent. Other dishes including seafood specials were also great. It was an excellent way to end our stay in Rome. This is a high quality restaurant with reasonable prices. Highly recommended.
