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.

Prices seem too high for the food received. I saw the wine in the fridge - it seems the cheapest available on the market. The artichoke was tasty but too oily and overfried. The chicken was OK but small pieces. For the same money in...another restaurant you get a normal portion of meat. I am not super impressed by the pasta, either. Tiramisu was good. The table was shaky, and the chair was super uncomfortable. As we were sitting outside, I got bitten by mosquitoes. Cars were regularly passing by close to me. A man who was trying to sell roses to the tourists and begging for money, in fact had some kind of agreement with the restaurant (I seems he knew the waiters).More

Wandered upon this no-frills trattoria while strolling through Regola in the evening and had a wonderful meal.

This is my favorite restaurant in Rome. Doesn’t get more authentic than this. They only take reservations over the phone in Italian so make sure you have your concierge book it the first night you’re in town. Menu is handwritten in Italian too. It’s very...charming. Our waitress spoke enough English for us to order. She gave us some amaro for free at the end too. All the food was delicious and tasted like it was homemade. The tiramisu was to die for. I actually ate here almost ten years ago and had to come back when k went back to rome a few weeks ago and it’s still as good as I remember!More

After a two year hiatus caused by Covid travel restrictions Rome’s restaurants are once again bustling. Locals, who had Rome’s attractions, bars and restaurants all to themselves for a while now have to fight for a seat with the tourist hoards. Business is booming but...inevitably this sudden change has brought stress and strains that don’t go unnoticed by the tourists and often lead to unhappy dining experiences. With our go to eatery in Rome’s Jewish Quarter closed yesterday I was forced to look for an alternative for lunch with friends visiting from Canada and frankly some of the TripAdvisor reviews I read about some of my past favourite restaurants written by recent visitors frankly scared me. In the end we decided to try our luck at Sora Margherita, a very traditional Roman trattoria at which I great lunch six years ago (You can check out my review from May 2016 below). Sora Margherita was the perfect choice. They have a menu that changes every day of the week with tried and true Roman favourites. Their carciofi alla giudea was excellent and so was the Fettucine Cacio e Pepe was some of the best pasta I have had in Rome ever. Like most trattorie, the menu choices and the bar list is kept to a minimum. If you are looking for an Aperol Spritz or fancy cocktails look elsewhere. But if an ice cold bottle of Pecorino wine or a frosty bottle of Peroni or Nastro Azzurro beer will do the trick, give this place a try. They have been at this business since 1927 and their pride in the food prepared in their kitchen shows. My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful Roman lunch made all the more enjoyable by our very personable waitress. I am not going to wait another six years before my next visit.More

Food consistently good for the last 20+ years. Female staff very nice but recently an old man (I assume the owner) has been there and makes eating there unpleasant. So unpleasant it is now off our eating places. Many other great places to eat and...friendly staff to choose from.More

We were recommended this restaurant by the staff at our hotel as we wanted a traditional family restaurant. It was mid afternoon and we managed to get the last table outside and sat back and enjoyed the atmosphere. The pasta was exceptional as was the...sauces and the best was the house wine. This is a must visit restaurant.More

Simple restaurant with a good selection of Roman fares. Everything I had there was well made and flavorful. Staff was courteous. It offers dining outside when the weather is good. Recommended for folks who want to have a good meal at a decent price.

On our first half day in Rome, we needed a bite before a planned dinner. It being a glorious Saturday, the streets were packed with natives, tourists and students. With out looking at their reviews, time was a bind and we opted for this place...where most of the tables were full and the mix seemed more locals than foreigners. The staff seemed to agonize over whether they had a place for us; but one small table became free, and we were happy to take it. Yes, service is a bit of a jumble, But friendly enough. Our pasta was decent if not spectacular.. No frills (on the outside). Would we come again-maybe, maybe not. There are so many options in Rome. Other dishes going by looked respectable and perhaps working class. Prces modest for the heart of the city. So, not a full fledged endorsement.More

I arrived a bit early by Italian standards at 8pm to be told they were fully booked. They are, every table. But I stood with a sad old lady face and looked at my phone to see what else was near. I guess it worked,...she said wait and tucked in another table to the side. I’m so happy. Amazing grilled and marinated eggplant, yet another version of Cacio e Pepe ( this one with ricotta ) and a Tart Cherry Crostata miles better than last night’s at another place.More

I ordered the Pollo con Peperoni. It was 95% bone. Horrendous. Could barely eat anything. Tried to explain to the staff but nothing happened. Some hard bread (not served with oil) was provided, although didn’t know I was paying for it. 21€ in total, terrible.

Lovely small restaurant with a very authentic feel. We showed up without a reservation and they were able to squeeze us in. Food was great and we enjoyed everything. Menu not available in English, FYI.

Nice atmosphere but there's a lack of organization. Food is very typical and good, but nothing special. Make sure to order the right dishes if you stop there (Pajata or Trippa are very good). Prices a little above what we expected. Generally, a very nice...traditional place but probably our expectations were too high.More

We stumbled upon a queue outside this little restaurant in the Jewish Ghetto area. Put our name on the list for a table and came back an hour later. We were quickly taken into this tiny, busy but fun room, and a minute later were...joined by three ‘strangers’ who became instant friends. To start we shared twice cooked artichoke (so good!) and a zucchini salad with anchovy, garlic & olive oil (delicious!). Next a fettuccine cacio e pepe (fantastic!) and grilled lamb with lemon (yum!). Too full for desert but they looked good as well. If you’re after an authentic, local experience this is for you.More
