Traditional italian restaurant, with lovable service and delicious dishes. Located in an almost hidden place, I mean, it isn't in a very touristic area. They also sell some new and used books about cuisine and travel. A friend had recommended it to me and I approved it.

What a disaster, plastic cups and cutlery, defrosted and non eatable seafood, slow service (nearly 50 minutes to get a main course with an empty restaurant). Staying in a nearby hotel I have followed good reviews on trip advisor to have a pleasant dinner for my family. And I need to warn you! This is more like a fast food... More

This chef is passionate about cooking his Calabrian cuisine to ensure you enjoy his interpretation in Rome. He adds a personal touch and is relatively inexpensive. We went there again simply to enjoy his food.

I had dinner at L'Ambasciata Calabrese during a short visit to La Sapienza University. Overall it was a good experience, the only drawback was that they only had "industrial" ice-cream (tartufo) for dessert. Reasonable price for Italy, around 20€ (main course (a generous portion indeed) of fish+really good roasted potatoes, beer, dessert).

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo may look all street with its pulse in urban art and street food, but don’t be fooled. This gritty student neighbourhood immediately east of Termini train station is on the avant-garde rise. Art galleries, curated mural projects by artists like Rome’s favorite Alice, charming cafes, and boutique restaurants are slowly infiltrating the streets of San Lorenzo with counter-culture chic. Don’t worry, San Lorenzo still retains its local vibe with weekend festivals and demonstrations, and is always a hub for Rome’s university student scene.
