walked into this place with my wife for a bit of fine dining, there were about 10 people in at 8.30 pm with approx 30-40 places available around the restaurant. On lady welcomed us and was followed by a guy with little mans syndrome who just said " fully Booked" whilst waving his hands around like he was trying to... More

The place is not particularly nice and the neighborhood is not central, but the food and service are excellent. We are talking about traditional roman cuisine, so the specialties are fried antipasti, diferent kinds of pasta (matriciana, carbonara, particularly good gricia, etc) and meat-based "secondi" .

Yes, there is a tram up here from the historic area. But try and figure out the schedule. It was easier to take a taxi (20€, then another 20 to return to the hotel). We were the first to arrive at 7:30 (so unEuropean!), and the large 'cafeteria' sized dining room filled an hour later with mostly locales. (Though I... More

Da Cesare is a really good trattoria, not in the best location even though it is really easy to get there via tram. The food is lovely, the polpette di bollito are simply amazing, the stuff is nice. It is always crowded, we had to reserve our table two days before.

While this place has been on everyone's list of the best restaurants in Rome....I wholehartedly disagree! My litmus test is spaghetti alle vongole (clam sauce) and it was mediocre at best. My husband ordered spaghetti carbonara, and it was completely off. The zucchini flowers and calamari were also a C+. The main issue that I had was how NOISY it... More

Lunch for four on a Sunday. All the dishes were average to below average. How could da decent Roman restaurant botch grilled lamb? You can find out here. Overcooked and under seasoned. Pesto meatballs also average and nearly flavorless and the fried squash blossoms too greasy. Pasta alla gricia was good. But otherwise, nothing to write home about and less... More

We turned up without a booking in a torrential rainstorm. Turned out this local restaurant in a suburb of Rome was very popular and fully booked. Despite this the owner and staff managed to make room for us and conjoured up a table for two. Terrific traditional food served with super efficient service despite every table being occupied. They managed... More
