I've eaten here twice. Started with the Mozzarella both times, which was incredible with the rosemary bread. Had pasta and pizza (not at the same time) and my partner had steak. All dishes were delicious, and the service was great. Only problem is the soundtrack!!

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
