“Pear and ricotta ravioli”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

I made my friends hike here from the Borghese gallery because I just had to taste the pear and ricotta ravioli again, but everyone agreed it was one of the best meals we ate in Italy during our two week stay. The wait staff is attentive without being intrusive, the food is traditional, but done really well, with some flair and individuality. Lots of Italians eating here, too, which I always take as a good recommendation. Good wine, delicious food, great ambiance, just what you are looking for for a special meal out.

“Rome Favorite”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

I have not been to Rome for 7 years - and I couldn't wait to return to La Buca di Rapetta to have the baked suckling pig. And it was just as delicious as I remembered.
Pasta was excellent, as was the lamb.
Moreover, it has such a warm, authentic ambiance. The other patrons were Italians - always a good sign. (We were the only ones speaking English at the 5 or 6 tables near us.)
The only thing that is a bit odd - and this is very minor, is the sound system playing 80s american pop music. Seems a bit incongruous to this otherwise perfect Roman restaurant that is also reasonably priced.

“Best tiramisu ever”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Nice little place near to our hotel. Service was very friendly and attentive. Staff recommended the pork which was very well cooked. Tiramisu here is amazing, the best we have had anywhere. We shared the tiramisu but wished we took one each.

Highly recommended

“Fantastic Restaurant”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

A brilliant restaurant. The food here was wonderful, a true taste of Italy. We went twice and the restaurant was busy both times. A lovely atmosphere. Staff were friendly and attentive and service good. The somalier knew his business and was helpful in recommending wines to go with dishes if asked. He even checked the wine for corkage before offering you the wine to taste. Price for the type and quality of food very reasonable.

“Nice cozy setting with good food to match”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Our hotel suggested dining at this restaurant, which is close to the Piazza del Popolo and the Spanish Steps. Upon arrival, we were delighted to find a cozy, well-filled restaurant with many international and Italian diners. The food was very good including a great grilled artichoke dish for a starter with wonderful fresh pasta to follow. We actually saved room for dessert and it was delicious too. Wait staff were especially helpful and the service added to the evening of good food and nice atmosphere.
