Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of the most elegant , welcoming and friendly restaurants in the world not only Rome .on arrival we were warmly greeted by Dorina who upon showing us to our table greeted us with a glass of Prosecco . The ambience of the restaurant is...warm welcoming . This being a truffle restaurant we decided to go for the truffle tasting menu. I also paired it with some beautiful wines . The food was fantastic . The service was excellent and you were made to feel like part of the family. A truly memorable experience for our family visiting from Australia. We booked weeks before we left for our trip as over the years it has always been hard to get into this restaurant. This is one of the must visit restaurants when in Rome . Thank you for a wonderful eveningMore

A wonderful date night here at the Ad Hoc restaurant. The waitress was very impressive with her knowledge and multi lingual skills and made us feel at home right away. Would not hesitate to come back here again next time I'm in Rome. 10/10

Ad Hoc restaurant is a really nice and cozy restaurant or should I say wine cellar with tables to sit and enjoy the food between thousand of bottles of wine. The wine list is impressive and "list" is not the right word, it's a heavy...book you need time to go through - if you decide for red or wine in the beginning. Otherwise you need to read through 2 books. Service is super friendly and supportive, cannot be better. We tried the tasting menu w/o wine as we had been really exhausted after a long day walking through Rome. We liked it really a lot, but you need to know that you have to have some hunger for more as "tasting" is as well somehow an understatement, so skip the lunch and look forward a tasteful dinner event. Besides that I really liked the music which for me has been a perfect fit to food and wine. Furthermore we received a nice present as the resaurant celebrates their anniversary this year, thanks to the restaurant team!More

We’ve been before and without doubt we’ll be back again. Our favourite restaurant in Rome and that’s comparing to some Michelin starred restaurants. The most hospitable, kind, informative, helpful and friendly staff, and the restaurant itself is so beautiful. 6 of us had the tasting...menus pared with wine and its was delicious and the wine was superb .. I can’t speak highly enough of them .. we couldn’t have had a better night for my mothers birthday celebration.. an absolute must when visiting Rome.More

Really enjoyed the truffle tasting menu. Staff, vibe and food all exceptional. Went the extra mile for a birthday celebration and Prosecco on arrival and sparkling water included in the tasting menu price. Bravo.

What fantastic service, food & wine. So great to find a restaurant with great value along with service & quality food. We enjoyed the complimentary Prosecco, chefs dishes & sweets. But that’s taking nothing away from the food which was stunning. I particularly liked the...offering of duel main, which we availed.More

The fixed price tasting menus with wines are now €95 and mains are between €24-29. The food wasn’t great the night we went.
