We had a work dinner here a while ago which was such a treat. Service was excellent and the food outstanding. A tip: You'll need a glass of wine whilst you peruse the wine list/book! A wonderful evening, would recommend.

What can you say about a Michelin Star restaurant? The service was divine, the cuisine was exquisite, and the overall experience was stellar. Located in a hopping part of Rome the location from the outside was definitely underwhelming. Even the initial entrance into the restaurant...More

Pretty good. Solid choice for good cuisine with a modern style/flare. Not a "must go", but it's in a neat area of town which gives it a big perk. Explore after!

The restaurant claims to be a place for VIPs. Waiters behave rather arrogant. Nevertheless the quality is not more than average. Not worth the price!

Fine dining, old roman recepies with some contemporary ideas. The wine bible is impressive. Quite pricey, but worth it.

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable

Giving always attention to meet the changing course of the latest trends, the restaurant has the culinary agility to anchor the current fashion to the heritage of the rules and quality of the food products, maintaining the delicate equilibrium between discretion and popularity. In this way, we assure our guests to be present, without appearing. The original customs officer and the modern host, preserving the historic mission of the place, have been followed by a family known as connoisseurs of taste: the perfection of the proposed cuisine, offered in an ambiance enhanced by the beauty of the great artworks and the meticulous attention for each guest, so to guarantee an exclusive atmosphere combined with the warmth of a comforting familiarity. Our guest, no matter from which movie set arrives, or for how long hasn’t come, is always welcomed with a smile, a shake of hand, a delicious meal accompanied by an excellent wine and with the warmth of the art surrounding this fascinating angle of Rome. We know well that what the body nurtures is not foreign to the soul.
