Menu with a difference and a great atmosphere. We went early on a Monday evening and the place was buzzing by 9pm! Comprehensive wine list and beers. Definitely worth a visit and try the chips (crisps)

The best meal at the end of 5 nights in Rome! Great food and super staff. An Italian local place to eat but you are made very welcome. No wonder it is so popular. Can't recommend it more highly!!

If you're staying in the Ars hotel, this is a good choice for a fair valued, quality meal. The wine list is about 20 pages long and the food menu is 1 page long! Loads of craft beers available too. This is a local and on our visit there was a wide mix of neighbourhood customers. It's a bit of... More

The menu was heavily stained with food so this wasn't a great start. Its quite a nice atmosphere more like a pub with a nice emphasis on beer rather than wine. So its great if you're out for a drink and a snack. The food was ok but not great.

Found this restaurant tucked away. Friendly staff happy to interpret menu and prices for us. Nice bottle of wine. We had the steak and the tuna (fabulous). No extra charges and fairly reasonable cost. Would recommend.

My husband and I stumbled upon this place while looking for somewhere to have dinner in Rome and it has become one of our favorites. They have an amazing selection of wine and craft beers which is hard to find in Rome. For an appetizer we ordered the "tagliere" which was mixed cheeses and salami, and for my main dish... More

We loved this restaurant. It is clearly a favourite with the locals as I think we were the only non-Italians in there! We took that as a good sign. The menu is only in Italian but the waitress was incredibly kind to take us through the items on the menu and recommend a good dish. The food was delicious and... More

Found this local bar and restaurant on trip advisor down a local residential street to our hotel. What a great place for local food and wine with bags of atmosphere and great staff. We were the only English people in there but made so welcome they helped us with the menu only in Italian. Every thing we had was lovely... More

In Rome for a few days as a tourist. Our Hotel was close by so gave it a try after reading Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed, great food and great service, the menu was in Italian but one of the staff walked us through it to help us order. My wife had a pasta dish and I had fillet... More
