This little place was right near my friend's home so we ordered pizza from here and then had dinner here later in the week. I was very impressed to find such an authentic restaurant in this residential area. My friend knew all the family members and I was able to have the polenta I had been craving. Delicious, with a...

We (2 pers) had a very enjoyable dinner here! We each had a starter and main course and we shared one desert, one bottle of water and a glas of wine (well okay, the wine was mine). The total bill was about €50. I can highly recommend the toast with bacon and onions as starter, the tuna steak for main... More

If in Rome, and you want to eat somewhere a little out of the way, we recommend Taverna Portuense. It's a family run, genuine Italian taverna with lots of home made pastas and sauces. Chef Graziano even took us into his kitchen for a little demonstration. The taverna is up on a hill that overlooks the city, just beautiful.

I thought we would not have the opportunity to eat great food, but I was wrong. Our dinner this evening was just wonderful. The chef waited on us (we were by far the earliest diners... More

Having worked in this area for nearly a year, I had not expected that we would find such a great place to eat so close to where we were staying. (I usually stay closer to the centre of the city). Having the family with me this time, and staying in a hotel close to the office, I allowed the official... More

Friends brought us here to this very enjoyable restaurant off the beaten path, to make sure we got to try authentic roman cuisine. The young ebullient owner was very friendly and accommodating, preparing us sampler platters of items on his menu. We pastas were perfect. We sampled the lamb, fish, tripe and ox-tail (coda). They were all delicious but I... More
