We are a reasonably well travelled and 'grounded' couple who appreciate the finer the things in life when we experience them. To date our best ever Dining Experience has been the 'Al Munhara' Restaurant at the Burj Al Arab Hotel, Dubai. We have enjoyed many other excellent Dining experience's since then, however, to date the Burj has never been topped.... More

Located in the Gran Melia Rome hotel in the Trastevere section of Rome. Aside from being part of a resort in the midst of a city, the restaurant produces outstanding food which is impeccably served by a friendly wait staff.

I have eaten in a few Michelin star restaurants in London and this was beyond them in both quality of food and outstanding service. It was the best meal I've eaten in years. The staff are all friendly but incredibly professional and knowledgeable at the same time- the perfect mix. The restaurant itself has an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere. I... More

The food,beverages and service are the best I've seen in Rome. The lamb melted in your mouth. The chef overdid himself. The wait staff brought out several "samplers" the chef had prepared, which were out of this world. He followed it up with a series of decadent desserts for us to try also. I highly recommend this quiet, superb restaurant... More

We had an absolutely superb dinner at Viva Voce this evening. The restaurant was quiet, but the attention that we received all evening from the maitre'd, his associate and the server were simply first rate. Each course followed the other on a measured but not too long pace, and the chef provided three bonus "gifts" that were wonderful. Also, the... More

The hushed atmosphere and meticulous service were nice, if you like that sort of thing. The food however was disappointing. We chose the 'inspirational menu' which offers the chef's selection on the day. Four courses of which three were distinctly average and a choice of food more typical for winters day rather than the 38 degrees we had outside. A... More

I booked this restaurant for my parents 50th wedding anniversary with some hesitation as they have high expectations and I have a small purse! However, from the moment of my initial enquiry via e-mail, I was provided with a number of different options, from a six course tasting menu with wine, to a straight forward three course menu.

Viva Voce provided a wonderful experience for our anniversary dinner, combining the creativity and artistry of fine dining with friendly, efficient and knowledgeable staff but without the pretention that can accompany and spoil restaurant ambitions.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere
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 eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
