Amazing food, friendly staff, very nice atmosphere. We planned to go to another restaurant, but lucky us that one was fully booked, so we came here. The red wine is very tasteful, penne arrabbiata very very spicy, sea food pasta very tasteful. Definitely recommend!

We ended up here because it was raining and some other (better rated) restaurants were full. So, the food was ok, nothing sophisticated, one could say it was lacking attention. But the prices were nice, so was the staff.

Three of us had lunch with individual choices. Cool interior with excellent service. The menu is much more varied than most small restaurants and the homemade pasta was excellent. A very good wine list and desserts. Mostly locLs eating here. I will definitely return.

We are here while staying closeby at Suite Quirinale. The food is lovely, and the atmosphere very relaxed and friendly. It is popular, so booking is advisable. The walls are crazy! Highly recommended.

Our group of 4 couples attempted to have dinner at a well-known Rome Hostaria on Via Boccaccio, but it was more than full. So, we settled for the other Hostaria one door down, Hostaria Rosella. It was much more formal and traditional in its appeal...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
