“Charming, Romantic great service”
Reviewed 26 December 2011

My husband and I ended up here after being turned away at another restaurant. The staff was inviting, the restaurant is charming and the ambiance romantic.
Our waiters were prompt and tending to our every whim. I had the pear ravioli while my husband had the special which was a something that looked like rigatoni stuffed with meat in a broth. My dish was the clear winner.
We shared the tiramisu dessert which we both agreed was the highlight. We counted as 4 other tables ordered it as well. Yes....it's that good. I definitely think if you're in the area this is a great spot for a quiet dinner at a good value. Gusto just down the street beats it in terms of food taste but ambiance at Buca is better. Service at both places is great.

“Food was very good, but we thought, too expensive”
Reviewed 27 November 2011

First night in Rome, both hungry, more ort less went to the first restaurant that we sort of fancied. Food was very good, wine was also good, very cramped, eating in a bit of a bubble on the street. overall average

“Classic Roman Dining”
Reviewed 26 November 2011

Want a five starhomecooked Italian meal? This is the place. awarm inviting small family place up the street from the Art Academy and a short walk from the the Spanish Steps. Home made pasta and an extensive wine list will bring a smile to all who eat here.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed 3 November 2011

Forget eating on the squares and follow some of the roads to find better restaurants in Rome. We had a lovely meal here. Food was excellent and so was the wine. I would make a reservation as it was fully booked when we arrived. The waiter told us to come back in and hour and true to his word a table was ready. Its a small place so you get good service. Well worth a punt.
