This restaurant is in an easy location to find --- the food was good. However, the wait staff were not very friendly. It turned the dinner into an unpleasant experience.

My brother recommended this restaurant (he had visited about 5 years ago) but the food was rather cold and very bland. I was very disappointed with this restaurant since there are so many good ones in Rome.

This place was a lovely evening meal, that felt like you'd just stepped into an elderly Italian Man's home. The staff were wonderful, and barely spoke any english but still managed to communicate effectively with tourists. The only problem is that for fussy eaters, there...More

We loved this restaurant, it is family run and the food is amazing. Fresh and home cooked its simplicity is so appealing. We had the pork which was soft and flavoursome and cooked to perfection. A litre of good white or red wine is only...More

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
cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to
