Super service and very good food for the finesmecker, and the wine cellar is an adventure in itself. Must book in advance. Highly skilled and attentive waiters. Also no problem with gluten free food or other allergies. A wonderful experience recommended. Transportation easiest by taxi.

Just amazing. If you happen to be in the area, L'Archeologia is definitely a must! The waiters are professional, the kitchen is super clean, the chef is an artist and the overall experience is superb. Will come back for sure.

Easily one of the best restaurants in Rome. Fantastic service, extensive wine list and beautiful fish main course followed by great desserts, coffee and limoncello. Beautiful gardens and awesome wine cellar! Will be coming back again very soon.

The experience we had here was so wonderful I don't want anyone else to find it! But seriously everyone must go here. It is small and intimate, but not intimidating by any means. The staff are so friendly, greeting you with a handshake upon arrival,...More
