We went here 4 years ago and it seemed incredible. Were we drunk? We returned and the food is MICROWAVED. It is bland and watery and the service is brutal. Rome, where did you go? Why have you forsaken us? This is the McDonalds of...More

I phoned up to try and reserve but you can’t reserve. You turn up and are given a number on the waiting list. But the guy on the phone gave me a number as if I had arrived in person. I only had to wait...More

Ox Tail? We had to try it. It was much like a beef roast , with the tail bone in it. The lasagna was really good. The wine selection is....a book. We were happy with the authentic-ness of the restaurant. They did accommodate a food...More

Can't believe all the wines on their menu. Ended up with a bottle of Amarone. It was a brand I've not had before, and it was excellent. We asked for cold meats and cheese, but only got the cheese platter. It was good cheese though....More

Very nice place and very good food and wine. Nevertheless due to the lack of explanations on menu (very large but unclear menu) and no help from waiter we didn’t succeed in ordering what we wanted. Nice place also to taste special Grappa or other...More

This really is a cul de sac bc the restaurant is a narrow hall that shoots back with bordering and tight seating with wine bottles tattooing every nook and cranny. The Lambruscos were cold and delicious and the owners could not have been friendlier in...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa

We drank lots of wine when we visited Italy, but like everything, they don't taste the same back home. Best to find a local restaurant or wine merchant for recommendations. Prosecco is easy to find.
