Excellent little independent restaurant. Great food every time and friendly attentive service. You must have the pork loin with the figs. Amazing
This lovely restaurant was recommended to me by a well known UK chef. The food is fabulous, and I had a couple of dishes that will remain firmly impressed on my memory. The service is very attentive, and it is a small restaurant. If you love chili peppers this restaurant is a must!
Seating for 22 means make a reservation or take your chances that you can't get in. The décor is red and gold, exciting! We had raschiatelli di semola with anchovies, peperoncino, grated zucchini and light pesto, chestnut pappardelle with wild boar sauce, porcini and pecorino, a classic fish fry in olive oil, and filet of pork with a Calabrian style...

Found this tiny little place down a side street thanks to our great hotel concierge(s). Phenomenal dishes from start to finish and we knew that we were in the right place because the ratio of Americans to Italians was disproportionate(not in our favor which I always like!). Fantastic tiramisu to finish!
We went to Il Peperoncino D'oro on recommendation from staff at our hotel, who made our reservation. It is located on a small street but was easy to find, just a short walk from Via Nationale. The staff was very friendly. They were not as proficient in English as other area restaurants, which was okay for us but may not... More
Not sure why this place is so highly rated. Food was okay. Place is small with cramped seating. Had to order a whole bottle of wine for two people who don't drink that much. Sevice was lacking as well. Wouldn't go back as there are better places to eat in Rome.
This restaurant was recommended by the front desk of our hotel and in contrast with the other recommendations that they had made this restaurant was poor. The food was frankly terrible and the pasts dish, pappardelle, was certainly not freshly made with fresh ingredients, and the secondi piatti was equally uninspiring consisting of unseasoned squab on a bed of cold,...

Lovely friendly restaurant with traditional Calabrian-Italian food. Booking is essential. Food is very reasonably priced but not "cheap". Quantities are not massive (see previous reviewer) but in line with traditional Italian restaurants outside tourist centres. We particularly liked the mixed playe starter: ideal for sharing, pasta with spicy sausage, and pork with bacon and fig. Interesting selection of Calabrian wines... More
Went expecting a good meal based on reviews, but the meal surpassed expectations. Reasonably priced, simply prepared, wonderful setting in an otherwise touristy section of Rome. Lamb and pork were fantastic, sea bass very good. Turamisu dessert was a lovely cap to the meal. Restaurant is tiny, recommend reservations ahead of time.
Visit this restaurant at around 2 pm on a thursday. The decor is kind a weird. It reminds me of a chinese restaurante made on a back room. The staff was ok, not really interested in you. The menu is quite small and really overrated. I ate a pasta with tomato and cod and it was too salty (probably because... More
