Four of us had lunch here and loved every minute of it. Tiny place where they create the menu based on what's available and it's handwritten on notepaper. I disagree with the earlier review that said it was a tourist trap. I agree there are...More

We visited this nice place without any intentions but later wanted to return once more because you feel there like home. Dino is serving food by himself,you order by handwritten menu which changes everyday. Pasta was great!strongly recommend this place for great food and atmosphere!

Our dinner at Dino's was truly our favorite meal out of our 5 days in Rome. From the handwritten menu to the home made limoncello, everything was delicious and served to us as if we were family. Loved the experience!

What a great homey place! The menu is written for the day in a spiral notebook. Limoncello that tastes homemade. Great food. Inexpensive. There were 8 of us, 2 bottles of wine and limoncello and the total bill, written on the paper table cloth was...More

Feel like a local, eat like a local, talk like a local. When you ask for the menu you get a small note with the meals of the day written on. Have your Roman lunch in a very non touristic place. Every time we're in...More

Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is

gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,
