Beautiful restaurant on the Apian Way. Ambiance is wonderful. Service is excellent and unobtrusive. Four of us tried multiple dishes. All very good with an impressive Italian wine list. Quiet with a large outside seating area which I would recommend. Nice antiques give a good touch.

Easily one of the best restaurants in Rome. Fantastic service, extensive wine list and beautiful fish main course followed by great desserts, coffee and limoncello. Beautiful gardens and awesome wine cellar! Will be coming back again very soon.

The experience we had here was so wonderful I don't want anyone else to find it! But seriously everyone must go here. It is small and intimate, but not intimidating by any means. The staff are so friendly, greeting you with a handshake upon arrival, and were attentive and kind all evening. They also brought us a few special surprises... More

Somewhat upscale restaurant on the Appian Way. A relaxing, picturesque place with very well prepared food and friendly staff. Pasta dishes were great, as was our wine and the crispy shrimp (pictured). Good lunch stop after a long walk. Make a reservation.

We are getting married here in April. Now had two meals and both were amazing. Staff are great, food is great, environment is great and location is 'authentic Roman' without feeling touristy. A must go for any visit to Rome.

This restaurant is not only gorgeous but serves great food. It is an iconic restaurant Take a tour of the Catacombs where Saint Peter and Paul were originally buried together. See the footprints of Christ! Then order up a Lazio white and have a perfect lunch! Dougthelebaneseguy

After arriving at the nearby catacomb to realise there was no on site refreshments, we decided to have a walk in the vast ground which the catacombs are located within, and after a few minutes of walking we stumbled across L'archeologia. From the outside of the building it's very deceiving as it just looks like a typical restaurant but as... More

I understand that this is a great dinner place but I stopped in for lunch with family. Really glad I did! Great food and I ate too much! We had the Sea Bass oven baked in salt and it was the best ever.
