The pasta is not home made and for the same price I got home made pasta in Rome ! The crostini is a pile of ingredients and the taste is less than average. Only two clams in the Spaghetti a vongole dish tasted fresh and the clams tasted as if they were boiled in chicken soup. I really don't recommend... More

We went here on the recommendation of the woman who was renting out her apartment to us. We had been to an amazing restaurant the night before and had read glowing reviews of this restaurant. I had a nice starter and a nice main course but my wife didn't have the same luck. She was considering a secondo of fish... More

My second visit, 18 years apart! Unchanged, solid excellence with a majority Italian local clientele. Knowledgable friendly but professional waiters, delicious food.

Few words are required to describe this excellent mid to upper end eating establishment. This is my fifth visit over a decade and only if I am struck down will other visits not follow. Old school ambience and service. Everything that I have ever eaten here has been good or excellent: today the soufflé of truffle and porcini mushrooms was... More

We met our friends in Rome and their daughter use to live there. On visits they had gone to this restaurant and enjoyed it greatly. So, all four of us went. Definitely a place that locals visit. It was very old school and a trip to the past. The food was excellent from the seafood risotto to the veal Milanese.... More

This restaurant is in the Prati district -- in our "hood" as were have an apartment in Prati for the month of January. We keep going back because everything is sooo good. Try the tortellini in brodo in a cold day, or the fritta mista, or a pizza, or the spaghetti alla vongole. We have yet to be even the... More

expected better food. But disappointed to be honest. No surprise at all. Thought should have better food served for Christmas Eve and have something special, but nothing. Won't come back 很普通很一般,意大利饺子还可以还有松露牛肉还过得去其他都很很…无聊。对不起价格。不会再来吃。米其林指南说还不错实在是很一般。两个人吃了105欧。但是相当不满意

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Prati
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, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
