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.

Above average in some dishes but not in others makes it hard to give it the good rating I want to. The ossobuco was very good. The carbonara and tagliolini not so good. Attentive service and a well run restaurant but uneven quality and taste...of the food is why I rank it average. We also had a mixed salad, house wine, a Roman artichoke. These were all fine. My lasting impression is that Grappolo d’Oro can easily rise to VERY GOOD with small improvements. Go for it!More

We had lunch at Grappolo d'Oro and we were pleasantly surprised with the food and the atmosphere. We split a misto appetizer which was delicious. My wife had the tagliolini with artichokes and pork cheeks with pecorino cheese. I had the lasagna with squash. Both...were delicious. Overall we were pleased with the service although it was a bit slow, but when the head waiter offered us grappa and an amaro after our coffee, we were happy!!! I think travelers to Rome need to realize that there are a huge number of restaurants to choose from. Quite often, lunch can be quite expensive and good but you can also find places where the prices are reasonable and still have a very good meal. Grappolo d'Oro is one of these places.More

We had a very pleasant lunch here. We split the mixed appetizer, which has a number of very tasty bites. I especially liked the eggplant and ricotta "meatballs". For my main meal, I had the house made tagliolini with artichokes, guanciale, and pecorino. It was...excellent. My husband had the pumpkin lasagna. Also excellent. We had the house wine, which was nice and light for lunch. There was a table with a. large group there, so service was a bit slow between our appetizer and pasta, but we found the staff to be pleasant. I would return.More

We were recommended this place by someone who had visited Rome a couple of years ago and enjoyed their meal there. Sadly it seems the restaurant has struggled to retain decent staff. We felt like we were an inconvenience to the waiters and our food...was pretty bland, clearly prepared and presented without care. We shan’t be back.More

You can normally get a table of an evening without too much bother , but they will take reservations, ask your hotel to make it for you I am sure they won’t mind It’s certainly worth it that’s for sure

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
