My Mother & I were enjoying a short break in Rome & on our last night decided to dine close to our accommodation at Mama' Ristorante Bistrot. Having spotted the menu earlier in the day we decided to return later. We were not disappointed! Our...More

A few minutes walk away from St Peter's square. Really fresh decor and very different to that of 'usual' bistros as restaurants made a really relaxing atmosphere. The waiters were lovely and very attentive. The food was amazing and so tasty as well as having...More

If you prefer a salad for a breakfast you should try salad with Mozzarella Buffalo (so fresh and tasty) or a salad with raw tuna. You will be happy! Also good service, nice interior.

We received good food and service for affordable price. Clean restaurant with nice and friendly staff. Interior has a bit modern atmosphere, which we enjoyed with two kids (7, 12) after all those historical scenes during the day. Also the wine recommendation was spot-on. :...More

We had a perfect lunch here. Buffalo mozarella was the best I have tasted in Italy so far. The danish beef steak and ham were very good as well. But what really impressed me was the tiramisu. Incredibly tender, melting in the mouth - the...More

Food was pretty good but waiter could have been friendlier and more informative. Look for the menu on the board. Apparently attracts locals.

We went for lunch following a friends' suggestion and it turned out to be a positive experience. Location quite pleasant and the service was good with waiters being attentive. Food was good. Not excellent though since ingredients weren't of prime choice e.g pasta with salmon...More

We visited this restaurant as it was recommended to us by friends. We were not disappointed, the carbonara and seafood pasta were delicious. The desserts were also lovely. We felt like we had been forgotten at one point as we had to intentionally ask for...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
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every
shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and
gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,

It was very quiet when we were there, totally did NOT live up to the TripAdvisor reviews, I wondered if the reviews were genuine after we went there as it's really nothing special.

We ate at two tables outside (we were 4 people) yes the sidewalk is narrow but it doesn't matter. Of course it may be chilly depending on the weather. Service was great outside and inside (we are there twice).
