We really wanted to like this place: it’s reasonably priced and part of the slow food movement, which we wholly support. And generally the flavours were good. Nice all’amatriciana in particular. But two of our courses - the aubergine patties and the ravioli - were...served lukewarm, which is not something I’d expect at a restaurant that’s got a bib gourmand. That kind of killed the meal for us. They ought to as a minimum warm the plates here - all are stone-cold, which doesn’t help. The roast lamb was also over-cooked - quite dry and chewy in the main. It feels like this could be such a lovely restaurant… but on tonight’s showing some basic mistakes made it a disappointing experience.More

Great experience! Food, service, wine was great! Don’t miss this gem! We were a bit sceptic at first sight since the tables outside were quite simple and we got recommended this place by another restaurant since they were fully booked. I’m glad we did not...hesitate.More

This is perhaps the best carbonara we've ever had - creamy, but with guanciale cooked to a nice crisp. Flavor was excellent. Owner and waitress were very nice, despite the place being extremely busy.

We stopped for lunch at Hosteria Grappolo D’Oro and had a truly enjoyable experience. The service was very good and the restaurant runs very efficiently. Most importantly, the food was sublime. We started off with an antipasto misto consisting of mouth-watering cod fish mousse, a...creative millefoglie of burrata cheese and anchovies, polpette di bollito (boiled beef meatball), aubergine ricotta cheese patty, and panzanella. This was followed by a delicious plate of mezzipaccheri pasta with fresh anchovies, roasted zucchini and toasted aromatic bread crumbs. Together with a local Cesanese del Piglio red wine it was a fantastic lunch. Thanks to our great friend for the recommendation.More

Roma is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world so the tourists are flocking so the level of the services plummets, it's inevitable. Well this restaurant serving local food is a sure thing! Near Campo dei Fiori is perfectly located in one...of the hearts of Roma for food and drinks; clean, nice looking, small tables (no big parties). Staff is really kind and gentle, attentive and helpful. Food is delicious, tasty well cooked; traditional recipes, such as Amatriciana, carbonara, cacio e pepe, are perfect and I am Italian so I know what I say. Although this is a restaurant gathering tourists be sure you are getting the best possible, no doubts. Another hint is the fact the menu is not extensive while there are some more contemporary dishes such as "sfoglia di burrata e acciughe" three layers of puff pastry with burrata cheese and anchovies; you will ask for more. Price is absolutely coherent to the quality although not too expensive. So go there and have the best! RESERVATION ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED!!!More

A friend and I spent a long weekend sightseeing in Rome, and we rated this our best meal. Our other dinners were pizza and non-pasta. So for the last night we asked a local for a pasta recommendation - and this was it. Reasonably priced...and expertly cooked.More

Suggested by a Roman friend we indulged ourselves with a quintessentially Roman dinner. This Hosteria is a Presidio Slow Food, meaning it’s a proper place where to ear and enjoy good food with friends and no rush. The Hosteria is next to Campo de Fiori,...one of the hottest spots of Rome, but yet apart from the busy, chaotic and touristic buzz of this city. The staff is very friendly, accommodating and attentive. The food for us was an easy choice and we opted for the antipasti mix and the ‘cacio e pepe’... to kill for! Fresh, delicious and authentic. I had to walk for half an hour to digest it, but totally worthy! Don’t miss it. Bravi!More

This restaurant is my family’s go-too place whenever we want Italian food. We’ve been dining here for quite a couple of times and all I can say is that it’s worth it. Tasty food, great service, and perfect location. Upon reading comments from unsatisfied costumers...saddens me because based on my experiences (and also from friends’ experiences), I can’t help but disagree with their disappointment. The foods were really really really delicious, the waiters were really kind, and the price is not that bad. *Pictures below are some of my favesMore

We had a simple but extremely tasty dinner with superb service. Homemade pasta was excellent but local wine selection really hit the roof. They have exceptional local wines from small wineyards which you cannot spot in every restaurant. We highly recommend this restaurant and will...return!More

Service, ambience, food, and value: all top notch. The cacio e pepe, the carcioffi alla romana, the cheese and pepper tonnarelli, the braised cheek with chianti: superb. And probably the most sublime pistachio gelato I've ever eaten. Another big plus: the clientele are locals.

Yes they do. In fact most restaurants we went to accept credit cards. You may want to carry more than one type of plastic though, eg, Amex, Visa, Mastercard, etc. One final advise, you may want to change some euros in US... More
