Just an ordinary, uncomfortable seating restaurant. 2 points for the meat. It is an overrated restaurant. Possible to find better services nearby with better atmosphere. The grey bearded waiter with eyeglasses was terribly rude. I am familiar with rudeness of many italian shop keepers (i...More

We had a great lunch at Cul de Sac last week. We ordered the red lentil soup that was amazing. The wine and bread was also wonderful. Nice setting outside in the street or inside the long narrow restaurant. Friendly and efficient service.

Excellent wine selection and wonderful cheeses too. Nice to sit and try both. Good pasta and salad variations too. However, could be more welcoming as some staff need to work on their customer service and smiles.

I have often been told that Italians export their worst wines and keep the best to themselves. And I think most of that wine is here. Huge menu. Great staff and tasty nibbles to accompany. But this place is about wine. End of.

One of my favourite places to eat in Rome. Great wine list and the food is consistently good. Lovely place in a small Piazza to watch the world go by

My fiancée and I are really into wine so this seemed an obvious choice. We were keen to try lots of different wines but they only serve about 6 reds by the glass. Not much to choose from... it’s great that there’s lots of bottles...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
