This is the place for perfect pasta in Rome. As good as it gets. In a wonderful neighborhood of Rome, this traditional restaurant serves excellent roman cousine. Great experience!

Very disappointed. The restaurant was very busy and tables close together. We were constantly knocked by waiters pushing past. The battered anti pasta was good. The abbacchio al forno was quite good. The service was very abrupt and slow. The bill had a cover charge...More

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
