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.

A little gem not far from The Pantheon. Great food and a super nice waiter. A €20 Menú del giorno that was superb - three courses, wine and water!!! Well worth the 10 min walk for a very pleasant lunch. You won’t be disappointed.

Chose this restaurant based on reviews... Great restaurant near the Pantheon. Very good service and delicious food. We were a party of 11 on a Sunday evening. Made reservations night before. Everyone loved their meal and we were very well taken care of.

This spot was fabulous. We ended up here on a Sunday because lots of places were closed, but everything was absolutely delicious. Enjoyed the house wines and the truffle pasta. Friendly service, lovely street ambiance. Would definitely return.

I stumbled upon this place while wandering around Rome on my solo tour of Italy. The lunch special was an absolute steal including primi, secondi, wine, water, and dessert for only €20. The carbonara was so delicious and it was the perfect lunch after a...long morning of walking. My server, Zulya, was very kind and accomodating with my poor Italian. 10/10 I would return if I find myself in Rome again.More

This was our best dinning experience in Rome though the food was just good. The waitress did a great job of making our family feel welcome and not like we were intruding. The Bruschetta Mista was great. As a table we had 1 of each...steak, a pork filet, a Rigatoni dish and a carbonara. I can really judge the filet with the mushroom sauce or the pork as we my daughter didn’t care for the sauce on the filet and I don’t like berry flavored sauce on my pork. However, that was personal taste not poorly cooked or presented food. The other steak was very good and cooked as requested, the Rigatoni was very good the Carbonara we had better at Cantine e Cucina, and the salami and cheese was excellent. Overall we left full and satisfied and thrilled with the service.More

We sat inside with a nice vibe. Service was very friendly, but very, very slow. Food was average. Not bad, but not outstanding.

We stayed in the Pantheon area and were looking for something nice and this restaurant popped up on the radar. We decided to go without a reservation and got there just before they opened at 7pm. I'm so glad we did! I had the carbonara...and quite frankly, it was a LOT different and better than any other pasta I had in Rome. My wife had the Amatriciana and she felt the same way. The staff was fantastic and they never rushed us during our almost 2 hour dinner.More

I came across this restaurant by chance and it turned out to be the best culinary experience I had in my 7 days trip to Rome. The food is of top-notch quality while the prices are in the mid-range category. I had the beef steak...in truffles sauce and it was among the best stakes I've ever eaten. My brother had salmon steak and he said it was the best salmon he's ever had. Then there were the waiters, which were very professional and attentive. One of them, dressed in a very elegant suit catches the eye. The place also has an assorted wine menu, and I was surprised to find some bottles at impressively low prices. The inside might seem short of space but it's very cosy and intimate. Although I dined indoors, I think I would recommend staying outside: the narrow street is quiet and flanked by old buildings, certainly a fine retreat in the hot summer days. Thumbs up!More

Don't be put off by the location off the beaten road yet still in the heart of Rome - the food was delicious here. Would highly recommend their Pinci. But Fred really went above and beyond to make sure we had an excellent experience -...thank you, Fred!More
