Our B&B recommended this family-owned restaurant, and we considered it to be the best food we had in Italy. Enjoy the Italian experience - English is limited. The food and house wine (very inexpensive, served in a pitcher!) were wonderful.

If you are looking for a nice meal in Rome, just dont come here. The Old grumpy lady is racist. Seeing us as the tourists, she unpleasantly pointed us to a random table giving us the look of 'not welcoming us'. The food here is...More

They were surly, racist, rude, slow and pasta was cold and had hair in our food. It's not an American problem either, it's a Tattoria Ai Villini problem. I will never go here again. No one should.

Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is
a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every
shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and
gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,
