I can´t say anything bad about the food, it was excellent. But in Rome I have not met such as ignoring staff like here.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was very warm and welcoming. It was always very busy, but there was never a wait for a table which was a positive. The staff were all very polite and the service was quick most of the time. Busier periods (7/8pm) seemed to deliver slightly slower service, but of course this is just expected from any establishment with large amounts of customers, and you were not left waiting longer than expected.
This brings me onto the food. It was some of the most delicious food I tasted in Rome, it was a short walk from our hotel and we returned a couple of times during the week because we enjoyed it so much. Even the bread brought to the table when seated was some of the tastiest bread I have ever tried, especially when warm. However, be careful because this is brought without being asked for, but it is only 2 euros and is most definitely worth it. The price of the menu would be considered cheap, as you were able to get a pizza for 6 euros, and the pizzas were large.
Cutlery and over all appearance of the restaurant was brilliantly clean.

RAF was recommended by our hotel,NH Giustiniano, and it did not disappoint. We arrived around 7:15 and it was still pretty empty. As the evening progressed more and more patrons arrived. Many were locals, a good sign for us as we were not seeking a tourist spot. My wife and I shared a rigatoni dish for two. It was plenty of food and was outstanding. Since we also had appetizers, there was no room for dessert. Will change our ordering strategy for our next visit. Still have two more nights in Rome and Raf will probably be one of our dinner choices.

Great service and welcoming atmosphere! You should especially try the dessert with Nutella! The waitstaff spoke Engish and was very patient.
