“Simple, tasty and great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

A bit of a bar/lounge that want to be a restaurant and a restaurant that wants to be a bar/lounge.
You will distinctly see the 2 trying to merge in, in a cool and trendy ambiance. (music, beautiful people and associated scenery)
Modern interior, fusion cuisine, great wine selection, I would recommend it for a casual business evening or a smart casual dinner with friends place.
The prices are okay-ish, yet not cheap.
This is definitely a selected audience and a must see and be seen place, that reminded me of another 'establishment' in Martin place in Sydney...
I will go back there, with friends or customers.

“Duke's the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

In the most exlusive neighborhood of the city Parioli is located one of my favourite restaurant,the bar is very good,I think they serve the one of the best spritz in town..Try the tuna which is very good and fresh.

“Seems to be in NY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

Great place in Rome to have a drink and/or dinner!
If you go for dinner, step-in in advance and try the superb Spritz or Spritz Royal: you will appreciate it!
The atmosphere is cool and the selection of food and beverage very, very good. People, music, staff...it seems to be in New York!

“Ordinary food in a pretentious place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

I didn't really enjoy the whole experience. We were rushed through the whole meal with average results.
Very unexciting and predictable food, specially considering that a restaurant pretending to offer an international menu in a place like Rome where local food is one of the best (or probably the best) in the world: trying to offer something different than the ordinary restaurants is appreciable, but then the food should be up to that. Anyway we had some normal appetizer, a terrible frozen sushi and a very poor steak (mainly untasty). In a very smart and residential area, the place was once quite nice, in 90's maybe fancy but now needs to be updated. Good beer list, average desserts. Price about 40/50 euros + wine.

“Great place. Locals not tourists.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Had a great evening. Food was fair, service was great. Atmosphere was brilliant and the place looks very different.
