The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the staff members are friendly. The food is prepared well, sometimes with a little twist on a classic. Overall, a very nice experience.

Restaurant is cool; was recommendation of friend living in Rome! Cool because of the music (80), what is on the table (go and see) and relaxed atmosphere:-). Food is great, honest and Italian for sure:-)

Went there with my wife after our Vatican tour. Had read that it was a good roman restaurant. We are Spanish and we like to eat and drink well - one of the few things we actually do very well! The service was very nice and very helpful. The spumanti was excellent, not to mention the amatriciana and the pigeon... More

We liked the food and the car toys on the tables. The staff was friendly, patient and helpful. We had the carbonara as a main dish, which felt salty and kind of uncooked for our taste (i don't mean al dente). Overall we liked the place and the other dish and sweet.

We went to L'Arcangelo because of the Food and Wine magazine recommendation. Our hotel concierge told us to get the fresh gnocchi and it did not disappoint. Our waitress did not speak much english but we had no problem communicating. The chef visited tables to make sure everyone was happy. L'Arcangelo is in an interesting neighborhood, so go early or...

Having read reviews on here we tried to book in advance and got in not quite knowing what to expect. The food is excellent and the staff were very helpful. We had the specials that day which were faultless and the wine list though not huge was well thought out and fairly priced. We also had a spumante as an... More

Found the place through a local norwegian guidebook ("reisejournalen") which boasted that the place served the best gnocchi amatriciana in Rome. I made a reservation for 1 through the Quandoo app. Ordered the 6 course menu for lunch, including the gnocchi (on a thursday - "the gnocchi day"). A streamlined progression of courses, more refined than my previous meals in... More

Once you get over the snobbery of the chef's wife, who is really quite an obnoxious woman, you'll find the other staff and the chef himself to be charming and helpful. The food is worthy of a Michelin star ... particularly the pigeon, which is presented in an incense filled closhe. Reservations are a must but can be made through... More

Trying to do classic dishes with a twist shows just why they were classic dishes in the first place: they are great as they are. Smoked potato rosti served as potato croquettes in a martini glass makes no sense and was a major culinary let down. The rigatoni carbonara was a travesty of that beautiful and subtle dish, the lamb... More

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Prati
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.
