Tiny little restaurant but top class food and service. Booking essential if you want to eat here. We went back a second time and it was just as good. A must visit.

We had a chance to eat our last lunch in Rome and it was a perfect end. Risotto with truffle was perfect, fettucini with Black truffle was also delicious. Very nice welcomed, very interested and humble waiters. A very small place, reservation needed.

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
