I visited Fuiggi back in April with my daughter when on a trip to Rome. It was off peak, so there weren't many other tourists around. We were very hungry after a day out and we're looking for somewhere to eat - not everywhere was open yet and some of the places available seemed suitable for a more formal dining experience and were also a lot more expensive, others were of the cheap and cheerful variety. We were looking for good quality Italian food.

Neither of us can speak Italian, although I did have a guide book to make some attempt- it was a relief that the waiter's English was excellent and so we were able, with his guidance, to choose something from the menu. We started with a shared platter of cheese and cured meats.......it was absolutely enormous, to be honest it could have fed us both amply as a main course. The food was so good and fresh and of a great quality as well. The waiter was really friendly and chatty (but not overly so!) and the restaurant itself became really busy as the evening went on.

For our main course we chose a T-bone steak, which comes on a cast iron platter so that you can finish cooking the meat to your taste......it was cooked in an open oven in the restaurant and was sprinkled with coarsely ground salt -and that is all it needed. It was probably the best steak I've ever had, melt in the mouth steak! I recall we ordered a salad to go with it, it doesn't come with all the extras like chips or sauce or a grilled tomato like in the UK, but in my opinion, no extras were necessary. The atmosphere of the place, filled with locals and a great music playlist in the background, coupled with lovely friendly staff made this trip really memorable and if you're staying in or near to Fuiggi, we would definitely recommend it!

In total including wine, the meal was around £60 for both of us including a tip. Given the quality of the food I think this represents excellent value for money.

The place was recommended by the hotel concierge as "one of the best local places, famous for meat, but good for any food". Actually it was a total disappointment: awful service (they offered to taste a wine in a glass for water because all wine glasses were filled by water, the red waiter preferred not to see our raised hands no matter how close he was to our table), parma looked chopped by an ax, after 10 minutes of waiting for pasta with cod I was informed, that it had finished. The meat ordered by my friend's wife was overall OK - but it was the only good thing about this place. So we had left this restaurant without leaving tip - the first time in Italy and maybe even the first time in our life! This "museum" is not worth visiting, you can easily find much better places in Fiuggi!

A pleasant surprise, firstly it was open as so much of Fuiggi seems to be closed.
We ordered steaks priced by the weight, we put our order in their safe hands having no idea how large they would be , they were perfect .
House red wine is also good

Meat is speciality of the house and if you choose to sit inside your meal will be accompanied by a cooking show (or is it a class?). Burning oven, table laid with plates full of ingredients and a chef who at first sight works carelessly. But the quality of the steak is superb! You don't need a knife - you cut it with a fork.
They also have excellent pasta in the primi.
Tip: ask the waiters about the weight of your beefsteak. They like to make fun of you saying it'll be just right & then bring a portion about a kilo. A nice option is Scottish hamburger.
