We were eagerly anticipating our lunch at Marzapane, and reserved months in advance to ensure we could get a table. The service was flawless, and the waiter went out of his way to ensure we were well taken care of, had good wine recommendations, and even gave us recommendations for places to eat in Sicily, which was our next stop. There were some dishes which absolutely blew our minds: the pasta with anchovies and lemons was flawless. The seafood carpaccio with fresh raspberries and blackberries inspired. There were also a couple of duds: A gorgeous stuffed squid dish was artfully plated, but tasted very bland. The chicken and pineapple curry was also unmemorable. While we enjoyed our experience overall, I wish the food had been the most memorable part.

6 of us recently had the great pleasure of eating here for Sunday lunch. We all took the tasting menu and were thoroughly spoiled both with the quality of the food and the excellence of service. Rabbit roulade was exceptional. Two of our party adore sweetbreads and declared the ones here the best they'd ever eaten. A wonderful treat and a great ending to our weekend in Rome. Can't wait to return.

booked a few weeks in advance for Saturday evening - took a little longer to walk there than expected and would recommend a taxi for next time I think.

Although we were not completely relaxed when we arrived due to the rather rapid walk a glass of prosecco later life was much smoother and we knew that we were in good hands. Food and service was very good and efficient without being too regulated. It was certainly a personal touch and the two and a half hours we spent over dinner were very relaxing.

The €35 taster menu is vg value for money and full of variety - there were four bottles of Pecorino to choose from as well as lots of other good wine to sample. I particularly enjoyed a glass of dessert wine from Lipari which I had not tried before. Best grissini I have had for a while.

The small bags of chocolates with coffee were excellent gifts for others we have invited to try out Marzapane.

We will definitely return the next time in Rome - by taxi this time though.

My husband and I had a fantastic lunch here. We did the tasting menu for 35 euros, which is a really good value. The food was occasionally a touch oversalted, but generally very good. I was impressed by the service - they were welcoming, unpretentious, and gave beer as much pride of place as wine (as it should be)!

We read about this restaurant in an article and booked it for our first evening out in Rome. It's a small restaurant in a quite street. The food was amazing, everything we ate was delicious. And the owners were very friendly and warm. They recommended us some other restaurants that were great. After dinner you get a small bag with home made cookies, which was a personal touch. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Great wine too!
