We met our friends in Rome and their daughter use to live there. On visits they had gone to this restaurant and enjoyed it greatly. So, all four of us went. Definitely a place that locals visit. It was very old school and a trip to the past. The food was excellent from the seafood risotto to the veal Milanese.... More

This restaurant is in the Prati district -- in our "hood" as were have an apartment in Prati for the month of January. We keep going back because everything is sooo good. Try the tortellini in brodo in a cold day, or the fritta mista, or a pizza, or the spaghetti alla vongole. We have yet to be even the... More

expected better food. But disappointed to be honest. No surprise at all. Thought should have better food served for Christmas Eve and have something special, but nothing. Won't come back 很普通很一般,意大利饺子还可以还有松露牛肉还过得去其他都很很…无聊。对不起价格。不会再来吃。米其林指南说还不错实在是很一般。两个人吃了105欧。但是相当不满意

Very nice Italian restaurant with wonderful food and great wines. The service was also very good, besides a very friendly environment

Wonderful meal and service. Great selection, but not overly long menu. Authentic, delicious Roman meal.

Decor and service is of the "old school", and the restaurant appeared to me as a exclusive though not in a fancy or expensive way. Food is classical, and portions here are less huge than in other Rome restaurants (which is good) but very delicate and well-made.

This is a classic, a really good traditional hostaria of the sort that is becoming hard to find. It boasts an extensive menu, with, apart from the usual delicious dishes, plenty of innovative offering. I ordered the salmon with mango, something I had never tried before and found it excellent. Just inside the main door there is a large refrigerator... More

The food was nice but not exceptional and the service was good even though we were not all served at the same time. Unfortunately when one of my friends mentioned that the wine was not as it should be the proprietor talked down to us as if we had never tasted a good wine in our lives. My friend is... More

This is the second negative review that we have received from these eight people for a bottle of wine correctly inserted in the bill for the following reasons: firstly, the wine has been chosen among the wines listed in the wine list and it has not been suggested from us; secondly, as known the client usually tastes the wine and...

For the first time, the waiters in italy weren't rude! Good food quality and the deserts were to die for! They even serve artisan Gelato (instead of the mass produced ice-cream). Extremly clean bathrooms. Will definetly pass by again before we travel

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
