“Wonderful dinner ”
Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

What a nice place and so good food. The restaurant is rather small, full of atmosphere and happy customers. We just stopped by a
Friday evening and were lucky that they had room for us. I would love to go there again.

Thank Mette E

“A perfect evening”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

On our last evening in Rome we found the perfect restaurant La Dispensa Dei Mellini (La Dispensa meaning The Pantry). The service was excellent and so was the food. We highly recommend this place for people who love a romantic setting with great food and wine. Enjoy!

“Local restaurant for loca lpeople”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

Found this little local restaurant just behind the hotel, packed at the weekend, so went mid week, lovely food cooked to order, tasty and fresh, staff friendly and extremely helpful, so despite no English menu, we had a wonderful meal for a reasonable price.

“Excellent food in a lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

First of all I would like to note that the restaurant is NOT closed like a previous review stated.
We came across the restaurant because it was literally next door from the b&b we were staying in. Seemed like a nice place, dim lighting and a warm, homey atmosphere. When we came inside we were the only customers and seated without reserving, but by 9:00 when we left there were more people (all italian).
The menu was translated in its entirety by the lovely waitress wwho spoke excellent English, and we had 2 starters and 2 pasta dishes. This proved to be so much food we couldn't even finish our pastas, although they were both superb (carbonara and cacio e pepe). The service was excellent, and they consistently checked on us, making sure we were enjoying ourselves. A bit on the expensive side of casual (50€ for 2 starters, 2 pastas, 2 bottles of water and a dessert) but worth every penny. Overall, it's excellent, home-owned place to have a lovely dinner

“Delicious and inviting”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

This is my second visit to La Dispensa and I was not disappointed. I had the spinach salad (this time with salmon) and the carbonara with black truffles, finished with a slice of delightful chocolate tart. The restaurant is small, next to my hotel/B&B, but probably far from many others (it's on the Vatican side of the Tiber and a few blocks from most other things), the staff was helpful and the food was excellent. I will return on my next visit to Rome.
