We tried this place as it was recommended by our hotel which was round the corner. We had spent the whole day exploring Rome and we were pretty exhausted so didn’t want to go too far. We sat outside as it was a lovely night....More

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to

Assuming that it is a real Italian meal and not just "pasta and pizza" around 40 euros per person including wine.

I believe it was about 10-14 euro for pasta course, with the meat course being a little higher. I felt it was reasonable for Rome, and it was the best place we ate.
