Very much cheaper than the old brother and booked with the 50% discount. Friendly staff, short but good wine list. Nice place for a dyd fan with drawings on the walls. Italian food done well, not a tourist place due to it's position that makes it especially good for people from Roma. It deserves a visit for sure!

Osteria Giuda Ballerino was a lovely surprise for me. Good and honest food, lovely atmosphere, good and subtle music, lovely attendance. Congratulations to Mauro (the owner).

I had dinner at Giuda Ballerino a few times and it has been consistently amazing. Great food, great service, great wine-list. It is always such a great experience to eat there.

Excellent food, good service! I have been a few times to this restaurant and every time I am surprised by the combination of flavors. I really would like to recommend a visit to this place. It is not in the average price range, but it is absolutely worth the money.

We went to the Osteria with a view to eating something special. Honest? We were not disappointed at all. The food was excellent in our view. We had "raviolini al Reggiano in salsa di funghi con guanciali croccanti" and different types of second dish. Although it is not very central (but close to the underground station), the trip is worthwhile.... More

When I go to a restaurant which have the claim to have a different meal and serving a degustation menu, I want to have a meal of a balance. I had a very unbalanced degustation menu at Guida Ballerino. Three dishes of menu was about frying. First one was fried oyster, which I liked most. Second one was Chefs signature... More

Giuda is the right name ... when you expect quality and style and rudeness is what you get in return ... being a good chef is not enough if you lack style ... no matter how many stars you might be on a michelin guide

This restaurant is far away from the city center so if staying in most of the tourist locations it will not be convenient to get to (although it's not too far from a subway stop). The food we had was not good. The restaurant also messed up our order and instead of bringing the reasonably-priced seafood dish we ordered, they... More

I am aware that I am writing a review on the page of the Osteria while in fact I ate at the Ristorante but I do not find the Ristorante on Tripadvisor. Anyway. This restaurant is absolute top. We had made a reservation for the Osteria but there was a table in the restaurant and we took it. We never... More
