“beautiful place, great service, surprizingly good value”
Reviewed 25 October 2011

During our recent stay in Rome our hotel was located at the top of the Spanish steps. Ciampini was just steps away and we were incredulous about how good it would be as it was a prime location for a tourist trap. We stopped in there late one night after a tour to get a bite. It looked like they were closed (it was 22:45). They welcomed us and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and service at, what I considered, very fair prices. Since we were in Rome for over a week we returned two other times, once for a long leisurely lunch (try the truffle risotto!) and once for another late night dinner with a bottle of sparkling wine. The view is lovely day or night. Each time we were made to feel special and service was superb. I will visit again when back in Rome!

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed 14 October 2011

We went here twice on our trip is was that good. Traditional Italian food, simple in ingredients but big on flavor.
Service was excellent & they have a good variety of local wines to choose from.
Excellent views and only a short walk from the Spanish stairs

“Our best meal in Rome”
Reviewed 1 October 2011

Our last meal in Rome and the best. Beautifully done space in a fantastic location with good views. Bar far the best service we had all week and seriously good food.

Highlights: the mozzarella and iberian ham starter was perfectly balanced and
the wild boar and turnip top pasta was the best pasta dish I have ever had.

Our last night in Rome we chose to stay close to the Hassler Hotel so we walked a bout 100 yards to this resturantl. Great food and very professional staff. Very good wine list.

“The best meal I had in Rome - went back twice”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

Our daughter recommended this restaurant to us, so we made a point of reserving for lunch upon our arrival in Rome. Excellent and friendly service. The food was delicious. As a result we went back for a second meal which was just as good. Excellent wines even though on a bit on the pricey side. A haven of peace at the top of the Spanish Steps, hidden away from the noisy tourist area just below.
