Best restaurant of my most recent trip to Rome. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Perhaps it's my own partiality toward truffles but I found the food to be excellent from the consistency of the noodle to the flavor of the sauce. Also, the service is quite nice. Our waitress was warm and the head chef visited every... More

Go here, enjoy. We walked in after doing our research (Google best risotto in Rome and this is one of the top 3) and it was about 500m from our hotel. A couple walked in behind us and got turned away as we had pinched the very last table at about 9pm :) It was a bit truffle heavy for... More

Great food in a great environment! The stuff was very polite and the plates with the truffle are a great experience! You have to reserve a table because it is always booked!

Wonderful food and great service! Risotto special was fantastic! If one issue - on the night we went I found the tartufo lasagna a bit dry (nothing creamy about it) but still very tasty!!

Amazing small restaurant that specializes in truffles, something we can't find very often in the US. The food and service were fantastic. One of the best places we ate while in Italy

I first state you are going to need a reservation here, we attempted to come on a Thursday night at opening and it was fully booked for the night so the manager suggested a reservation for Friday which we gladly accepted. I was so happy that we were able to eat here. We ordered a nice bottle of wine, salad,... More
