This lovely restaurant is very close to Termini Station, it's a great choice if you are staying in one of the many nearby hotels or if you have some time to spend before your train departs. We were greeted by 2 very polite (and for...a good change, not pushy) waiters who served us a complimentary glass of prosecco while we waited for our food (and limoncello at the end). They have a fixed menu ("menu turistico") which is good value for money, 2 courses and a side dish for 18€ or 20€ (if you go for the fish). The food is really good, and so is the service. Overall a great restaurant if you want to try some good Roman specialties.More

We had a 4 hour layover before flying back to the states, we had 18 minutes to get foot before we had to grab our train back to the airport and they insisted we had enough time.. and they were right. Best pasta dish I’ve...ever had. I have food allergies so I’m allergic to yeast (mushrooms, wine & cheese...) and they were able to accommodate! Got something like a carbonara... and my god I wish I asked for the recipe. I’ll probably spend all of my quarantine time trying to figure out how the hell they made it. Currently searching through the reviews for a picture of their menuMore

Friendly welcome, sparkling wine and Italian bread sticks on arrival. Vibrant atmosphere with excellent service. Silvano in particular deserves a 5* rating for his efficiency, sense of humour and ability to switch between languages. We tried to look for somewhere different on the second night...but couldn't find anywhere better, so spent four enjoyable evenings at Elettra. Silvano suggested traditional food, which we thoroughly enjoyed.More

We’ve discovered this gem of a restaurant when arriving late at night. Not only the prices are more than reasonable but the food quality is amazing from homemade pasta to succulent pizzas, everything is excellent. The service is second to none. Will recommend this restaurant...to anyone that want good Italian food at a decent price. Will definitely come back there.More

We stopped late in the evening on our way back to our hotel that was just next door. We had a lovely meal and the waiters were amazing and made the whole experience fantastic. Silviano made both our visits great. THANK YOU ! It was...my girlfriends 40th birthday and I asked if they could bring out a piece of cake of which they decorated and brought out with a candle and sang happy birthday. I can honestly say we have eaten out lunch and dinner for 3 days during our stay at restaurants near the Colosseum, Vatican, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and would have preferred just to eat at Elettra. Great food & great staff is hard to come by but this place definitely ticks all the boxes.More

Been to Elettra Restaurant twice now and it never disappoints. Complimentary prosecco was a nice touch. Their asparagus risotto is amazing and the berry panacotta is really lovely too. The night we went it poured and staff were very attentive to our needs to keep...us dry. Close and handy to the main train station and our hotel where we were staying. Highly recommend.More

Always stop off here before heading into Formia to see my Dad. Food is excellent as are the staff and price. Close to Roma Termini too.
