“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

A little gem near Vatican but far enough from it to be a tourist trap. We had a mixed salad, which was perfect, with very sweet fresh cherry tomatoes and tasty vinegar that you can add yourself. The seafood risotto was one of the best meals I've ever had. Reasonable prices, good service, good wine (if you don't want a whole bottle, they have Chianti per glass). Definitely a place to return to.

“Simply Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Fantastic restaurant located very close to the Vatican. The atmosphere is very comfortable and clean. I was impressed that the owner (Alessandro) greets you personally upon your arrival. The service was excellent, not to mention the food! The fish is very fresh with a beautiful presentation. Prices are reasonable without being too expensive to take your wife to dinner in a fine restaurant. Definitely worth a visit!

“Lovely first meal in Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

Lovely waitress was so helpful and friendly giving us lots of tips for our time in Rome. Nice steak and pasta. Enjoyed a lovely bottle of Chianti too. Other adventurous dishes around us looked very nice too. We ordered fried potatoes thinking they would be chips but they were actually freshly made crisps. If you love Chips go to Goose round the corner. But La Calletta Is lovely too.

“Excellent food, bad service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is beautiful and modern with a great atmosphere. The food was fabulous and worth every euro (by the way, wasn't expensive at all).

But, from the start, our waitress was very rude and inpatient, She made us feel uncomfortable for the whole entire evening.

In the end of our meal, we had a small argument about them charging us an extra 4 euro's for a tiny piece of bread that she brought to our table without letting us know it was charged, that we didn't even eat. We thought that was not Okay.

buongiorno e grazie per aver decantato cosi' bene il cibo ,la qualita' e la bellezza del ristorante.mi ricordo perfettamente di voi,ci siamo visti sabato sera e la vostra cena e' stata preceduta da una telefonata per sapere quanto sarebbe costato un piatto di pasta .
ci tengo a precisare che il nostro e' un ristorante per molti ma non per tutti,o meglio un ristorante per chi sa apprezzare il bello,il buono,l'elegante,ilraffinato.il prezzo e' solo una componente,un dettaglio . nelle immediate vicinanze e' pieno di posti(non di ristoranti,che sono un'altra cosa)con lavagnette affisse fuori che propongono menu' a 8/10 euro pane compreso.il pane che noi serviamo ,che ci e' sembrato essere il motivo del suo disappunto, viene fatto al momento e servito caldo ed ha un costo fisso a persona di 2 euro a prescindere se viene portato 1 ,2 piu' volte(la cameriera ha solo cercato di spiegarvi questo).non abbiamo vino della casa come da voi richiesto ma solo etichette che si rivolgono all'alta ristorazione(la cameriera ha solo cercato di spiegarvi queso),ma con un ottimo rapporto qualita' prezzo ( si parte da 17 euro).segnalo che,nonostante la premessa,il vostro conto ammontava ad euro 58 e che , ha dimenticato di scriverlo, le e' stato applicato uno sconto di 8 euro e quindi avete pagato 25 euro a persona( mangiando e bevendo prodotti di grande qualita').ricordo anche il suo sorriso e la sua calorosa stretta di mano quando e' andato via e soprattutto cio che ha detto:excellent. cordiali saluti
