What a pleasant surprise. This small, reservations definitely needed, hidden treasure restaurant with a view of the Pantheon is among the best we have eaten in. They offer the “4” pastas of Rome and each one is sumptuous. While their prices are among the lowest,...their food is among the best. The first night we had carbonara with guanciale and amatriciana with guanciale. The next time we sat outside and had the carbonara, again, and the cacio Pepe. There are no surprises and the food is as tasty as can be. We made our reservations, from home, 1 month before as they only have 9 tables inside and 2 sittings per night. This restaurant is a must and should not be missed.More

They are always fully booked but if you go right at 12:30pm when they open, and as long as you are the first 2-5 people in line, they can probably accommodate you. The food is good but more expensive than some other places. They were...also the only place we ate at in Rome in our 8 day stay that forced bread on you and charged 2EUR per person for it.More

A great Roman classic. This is a small place (though they have a few tables outside), so a reservation is a must. We had the gricia and saltimbocca and both were faultless. The desserts were good, though not the highlights of the evening. The wine...list is extensive and worth exploring. The staff were friendly and very efficient. It is one of these places that makes you feel you could and should become a regular. Highly recommended.More

We went there because of good reviews but were unfortunately deceived by the food and the service. The manager/owner was rude and the food was overpriced for the quantities served.

Definition of a tourist trap , or maybe not , however way you look at it can’t escape the fact that the food was bad , and the service on another level of bad , it took us 15 mins to get the attention of...the waiter to order the check and literally 20 mins to get the check . It went to the extent that I had to beg for it in order to leave this hell hole of a restaurantMore

Well, I see all the rave reviews, and I think back to our visit and I don't even recall what I ate there. Not a good sign. It was good, for sure, but so many restaurants in Rome are darn good... but this one didn't...stand out. So, sure, visit for the sake of visiting 'one of the best', but there's a LOT of really good restaurants around that deserve attention too. Service was fine, though they seemed a little cranky. They did seat us without a reservation, but then, we're there during the COVID days.More

This restaurant is rated highly in many of the places I looked before our trip to Rome and we needed help from the concierge at the Hassler Hotel to get in. Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed. The first issue was that almost everyone in the...restaurant was American or at least speaking English, not a great sign for a Roman restaurant. Next, the menu is quite small and they would make no adjustments to anything, even adding extra vinegar to the mixed greens. The melanzano starter was burned. While the pasta for the cacio e pepe was well cooked that should be a minimum at a restaurant in Italy. The sauce was fine, if a bit too much pepe. My veal was again fine but certainly not outstanding. Maybe it was a bad night but to me this place was very over-hyped and under-delivered. We are hoping for a better ending at Cipasso, another highly rated Roman restaurant.More

a bit difficult to obtain a reservation but stop by and they were accommodating. The Mozzarella di bufala, Tenus wine, and Rigatoni all’Amatriciana were just excellent. It's been more than 2 years since I last visited but did not disappoint. They also have outside seating...I guess until the weather becomes cold.More

My husband and I went here because supposedly one of the best in Rome. Hard to get a reservation. It was a tourist trap. As Americans we were given different food than the Italians right in front of us.. Differenf servers told us wrong specials....The cacio de pepe we were served was different then the Italians sitting next to us. They were served real de pepe. The lamb chops they served were insulting along with the potatoes and the vegetables. Inedible.. The worst part was they couldn't have cared less. This restaurant is supposedly a sought after place in Rome. Do not fall for the hype. Have been to Rome and other parts of Itlay many times and this was the most insulting meal we have ever been served.More

My hotel secured a lunch reservation on September 7. I was staying fairly close and decided to walk. When I got there I began feeling bad, dizzy and nauseous, and just needed to sit down and have some water. The server immediately got me a...bottle of water and asked me if I was feeling all right, which I replied not really. He said take your time and make sure you are OK. It took me nearly an hour to start feeling better, eventually ordered lamb chops (on of their specialties) which were delicious. I originally intended to have pasta and wine as well, but didn't really want to eat or drink a lot w/o knowing how I would react. Anyway, I t/w the sommelier before I left, let her know that I didn't get to enjoy a complete meal and she said don't worry that they have been open for 60 years and that I would certainly return, which I will.More
