“Great view - a cut above”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

This is a cut above the regular tourist traps. A great spot for a romantic evening or with a group of friends.

“BAD service”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Despite nice location and a beautiful view our 17 wedding anniversary was a total fiasko.
The hedwaiter in this restaurant should not be working with people at all. We where to adult couples - which one of us is an well known chef and restaurant-owner - who was totally chocked by the total lack of service. Hospitality was changed with a hostile atmosphere.
Very sad.

“Magic”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

After wallowing in some less than satisfactory tourist experiences (that nonetheless cost us a bomb), this was a classy experience shared with friends, so in the end, no resentment on having to shell out the bucks. Little touches like the quality of the bread and a little teaser of cheese dribbled with honey spelled out that we were going to be treated right food wise. And the service was caring. Our bufala and tomato, stuffed pasta of some variety, followed by grilled seafood showcased fine produce without culinary fireworks - at least then we weren't too distracted from the fabulous views over Rome or our enjoyment of the old world glamour on offer.

“Amazing view, great service and good food”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Looking forward to returning to this restaurant - the view is amazing over Rome - just up from Piazza del Popolo and close to Borghese Park. The service was very good, attentive and polite staff, the food was delicious and wine list reasonable and extensive enough. Definitely recommend.

“A tourist trap? No way!”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

When dining at a supreme location such as "Casina Valadier" has it is natural to expect an over-priced culinary disaster coupled with short-tempered and snobbish service. I'm not sure how or why but this restaurant, which enjoy one of the most beautiful and delightful locations in a city full of beauty, does everything right. Set on the 2nd floor of a beautiful villa at the edge of Villa Burghese Park is has an amazing and unobstructed view of Rome, so anyone passing by (and a lot of people do!) immediately sees himself on the terrace, sipping a glass of wine or a cup of coffee and enjoying a truly breathtaking view. Unfortunately (for everyone else) but fortunately for us "Casina Valadier" is a serious restaurant with a tempting menu and serious prices. This attitude creates a haven of relaxation and luxury which is most welcome after a "squeeze" on the Spanish stairs. The bonus is the food, not "haute cuisine" with complicated dishes but straight forward quality cooking based on high-end products and proffessional delivery. In a city filled with cullinary disasters - "Casina Valadier" is an adress to cherish
