A restaurant where they serve the classic Italian kitchen. Slow food as it was meant to be. Great service too.

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to

I believe it was about 10-14 euro for pasta course, with the meat course being a little higher. I felt it was reasonable for Rome, and it was the best place we ate.
