Thank God we were here on a Thursday. Apparently, Thursday is gnocchi day in Rome. I have been eating and making gnocchi my entire life. I thought I knew gnocchi from my Nana. After eating this amazing gnocchi in a light, light cream sauce with...More

Horrible experience, the waiter was the less educated person I have ever seen before...very uncomfortable and unpleasant. They make you feel like rubbish. They treat tourists on a very bad way. It looks like you are not their friends, they will make you to serve...More

If you are looking for a nice meal in Rome, just dont come here. The Old grumpy lady is racist. Seeing us as the tourists, she unpleasantly pointed us to a random table giving us the look of 'not welcoming us'. The food here is...More

There few words to describe this place, the restaurant is consistent with its history of family run (since more than 40 years) traditional Roman cuisine. The service is reasonably quick, the portions are generous, the taste is that of homemade and freshly prepared Roman classics...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
a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every
shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and
gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,
