Menu with a difference and a great atmosphere. We went early on a Monday evening and the place was buzzing by 9pm! Comprehensive wine list and beers. Definitely worth a visit and try the chips (crisps)

The best meal at the end of 5 nights in Rome! Great food and super staff. An Italian local place to eat but you are made very welcome. No wonder it is so popular. Can't recommend it more highly!!

If you're staying in the Ars hotel, this is a good choice for a fair valued, quality meal. The wine list is about 20 pages long and the food menu is 1 page long! Loads of craft beers available too. This is a local and...More

The menu was heavily stained with food so this wasn't a great start. Its quite a nice atmosphere more like a pub with a nice emphasis on beer rather than wine. So its great if you're out for a drink and a snack. The food...More

Found this restaurant tucked away. Friendly staff happy to interpret menu and prices for us. Nice bottle of wine. We had the steak and the tuna (fabulous). No extra charges and fairly reasonable cost. Would recommend.

We loved this restaurant. It is clearly a favourite with the locals as I think we were the only non-Italians in there! We took that as a good sign. The menu is only in Italian but the waitress was incredibly kind to take us through...More

Salve Massimo, ho avuto modo di leggere la tua recensione a proposito de "ILocale" e... sono rimasto perplesso, forse che qualcosa sia cambiato dopo la mia esperienza non proprio positiva riguardo alla celiachia. Tu dici di aver trovato disponibilità e preparazione, oltre ad una offerta soddisfacente per quanto riguarda i prodotti senza glutine. Io ho trovato invece che non avevano ne una patatina o snack analogo garantito senza glutine, anche in busta, mi sarei accontentato, ne una scelta adeguata per le bevande, visto che proponevano solo le birre della linea Green's, ottime per altro, all'esorbitante cifra di 9 EURO a bottiglia da 33cl. Vorrei chiarire che trovo esorbitane tale cifra relazionata ai prezzi del menù che, seppur non proprio popolari, non sembrano rientrare nella fascia gourmet, rendendo quanto meno singolare la scelta, apparentemente punitiva nei confronti dei celiaci, di caricare solo su quei prodotti un margine francamente poco ragionevole. Ho provato anche a chiedere se potevano garantire un negroni con ingredienti senza glutine, cocktail inserito nell'elenco IBA e che non ha bisogno di presentazioni, ricevendo risposta negativa. Posso sapere con più precisione in cosa ti ha soddisfatto questo locale ? Che non vorrei che le due esperienze così lontane fossero dovute o a standard qualitativi differenti nel valutare o, cosa che mi piacerebbe molto, ad un cambio di rotta da parte dei gestori del posto. Colgo l'occasione per suggerire ai proprietari o gestori del posto, che sicuramente avranno modo di leggere questa mia, di rivalutare il loro approccio rispetto a chi è affetto da una patologia come la celiachia, non fosse altro che per non dare l'impressione di un intento discriminatorio nei confronti di chi non ha scelto di dover rinunciare al glutine.
