I was in Italy with my wife and 7 other couples in June 2017 and we had dinner here our last night before heading home. We had a private room so it was nice being secluded. Some of us had a fixed menu that had...More

I was ill as I walked out the door of this tourist trap (sad for Rome, it is Olive Garden quality food, not fresh or homemade). The food is awful, the cost is high for the quality, and from my food poisoning, I would guess...More

Dear guest, This is not to question about your review. But, let me tell you that in 20 years of activity sometimes (very few times indeed) people wrote that they did not like what they ate, but never our food quality was discussed. Our pasta,...More

Had a great meal here - we ordered the eggplant parmigiana for starters, and beef tenderloin and sea bass for mains. They also gave us gazpacho, bread and desserts on the house. Staff were very friendly and service excellent. There is an outdoor area which...More

My wife and I had dinner here the evening we arrived in Rome and we were so glad we did. The menu is full of Italian classic dishes, but with thoughtful presentation and explosive flavors. I highly recommend the eggplant parm and the carbonara!

We're staying at the neighbouring hotel to this restaurant and on our last night (unfortunately) ate here. We didn't realise that they allow you to share most of the dishes on the menu we were practically encouraged to do it! We shared the open kebab...More

We went to this restaurant because it was highly recommended by a food critic, and it lived up to its great review. Roasted pigeon with garlic mash, rabbit ravioli, followed by steak tartare with a layer of marinated thinly sliced mushrooms topped by shaved smoked...More

Pasta cacio and pepe was really bad done and the roasted pigeon without real flavor. We expected more from tagliolini with octopus

All dishes I have tried were too heavy, not the right flavour one expects from a gourmet restaurant. Not enough elaborated and not with the right mix of ingredients. Some dish was also too salted. The service can improve a bit while wine list is...More

All of it great. Atmosphere. Service. Creative menu with great quality good. One of the best meals I have had in Rome ever. Top Top. I highly recommend to Americans (or any nationality) not familiar with Italian food and want a very special experience. Can't...More

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
