Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great food! The pasta may be the best I’ve ever had. Get here before 7pm and you’ll beat the crowds. There are a lot of tourist, but that’s the area it’s in and the reviews are obviously bringing them in.

Myself and my son stayed in Rome for a few days and we ended up eating here twice! Lovely little restaurant and really friendly staff, the lasagne is to die for! At the end of the meal we got a shot of liquor and a...lollipop which was fun! Not over priced and a lovely atmosphere. Can recommend the lasagne, meatballs, carbonara and focaccia, delicious!More

We had a lovely time here because the food was just SO good, but the service was slow. They missed items and it was clear they could not be bothered to serve us. Nonetheless one of our favourite meals in Rome

Yet another highly rated restaurant in Rome that did not deliver. Very average food, very busy, very touristy spot. We were so disappointed-nothing authentic here. Would definitely avoid.

We visit Rome annually and I always come here for the pasta amatriciana. While everything on the menu is good, the amatriciana is a standout. Don’t be put off by the line ups, it moves quickly and is well with the wait. The team at...Cucina e Catina just get better every year and are well deserving of the ratings they receive. Highly recommended!More

Appetizers and main courses were delicious and creatively presented. Wait staff was slow to bring us water and take our order and we were seated outside in the heat, despite having a reservation. Highly recommend the poached egg on asparagus with parmesan foam and the...roasted octopus on wasabi pea sauce with laced black ink squid topping.More

We were getting a bit tired of pizza and pasta, so we found this restaurant with a wonderful local Italian secondi selection! Two of us had the meatballs cacio and pepe, and two the turkey milanese - both were delicious, rich, huge portions! The staff...were attentive, and the dining area was eclectic and charming. Highly recommend! Go hungry and early - there are huge lineups!More

I came to the place with high expectations from the numerous positive reviews yet I was disappointed with many things The food was not bad but not impressive, one of our dishes was lasagna which was below average especially that we had an amazing one...the night before at “Pasta e Vino” that was simply amazing The waiting line was too long, the place was very crowded and the music too loud. And for me the killer was that the glasses smelled like eggs 😞 Yet the staff was very helpful and attentiveMore
