“Skippable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

The reviews really made us want to go there - but the atmosphere and food is just above average, with price that are well above average. It boasts of a fantastic view of the city, but unless you get a table on the upper terrace that's not the case. The waiters are good, but the food is average. No dish was outstanding or made us want to go back. The wine list was standard. Go if you want a change from the standard Piazza cafes - but nothing to write home about.

“WEDDED BLISS & ROOFTOP DINING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

So we went to a wedding at this marvellous hotel, the food was lovely well presented and such a perfect service. Beef Carpaccio was truly lovely and plentiful. Plan to spend a long time eating as there is so much but if you take your time you really do enjoy the full experience.

“Excellent restaurant, service and view in the heart of Roma”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

This was our last day in Rome and we chose this for lunch after having read reviews prior to our trip. We now wished that we would have gone there first so that we could have returned several times during our week's stay. We had a perfect roof-top table and the view had all Rome laid out before us. From the roof-top restaurant, you are able to see the Vatican, Pantheon, Vittorio Emanuele. It is on a street right behind the Piazza Navona in the beautiful vine-covered Hotel Raphael. Mainly a vegetarian restaurant and each dish that we ordered was to perfection, and we tried many of the dishes. We were lucky to have Steven for our server and based on his recommendation for both wine and food, we felt it to be one of the best restaurants of our trip.

“Change to vegan but not a change in quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

We tried so many of the dishes here, but a word of advice: don't order them by courses unless you have a hollow leg for all the food! We ordered appetizers, first and main courses and two would have been perfect as the portions are quite substantial. The homemade paste was very good but I found that the beans were not cooked enough to my liking (can you to cook a bean to al dente?). The view from the roof is fantastic and a great way to see Rome after all the tourist have gone.
