We were a large group with no reservation who wandered in for a glass of wine and light meal. The staff were extremely accommodating (which was much appreciated) and the food and wine great. The building is also very atmospheric.

We found this place by accident and were thrilled by the sound of the menu and the vibe of the restaurant. Sadly our expectations were let down shortly after the first course arrived, artichoke dish and the ravioli.... Followed by the rabbit and pigs cheeks dish which were both bland, without flavour. Black truffle was the the only flavour carried... More

Disappointing. A cuisine that tries to be sophisticated, but lacks in finesse and taste. The place is an hybrid: neither rustic nor elegant. It's expensive for what it offers

We have been in this restaurant yesterday night. The ambient is very nice, quiet and jazzy. It's perfect for a couple. The wine menu is large enough for a good choice of quality. The waitress was very kind and smilly. We have been served fast and we have enjoyed our meals with a great pleasure. In conclusion if you want... More

Stopped in after dinner for a glass of wine. Was nice. My glass was reasonably priced--many other options on menu were expensive. But was a very cool space!!

This little out-of-the-way restaurant was mentioned in Lonely Planet so decided to have lunch here after a tour of the Vatican Museums - and I am glad I made the effort to find it! In the guide, it said that there was a small menu, but I found there to be plenty to choose from. The waiter was really sweet... More

We had visited this restaurant/wine bar a couple of weeks ago for lunch and had only ordered appetizers which were all excellent. This time we had dinner there on a busy Friday night and once again everything was superb. We ordered a few of the appetizers we had ordered for lunch: the veal meat balls and the fried stuffed anchovies.... More

Returned here after maybe ten years. It hasn't changed and is still a charming hidden gem. We had to be brief as it was a very quick business lunch. The rabbit "Primi" was absolutely delicious. I only wish we could have had more time or returned for dinner. The restaurant /wine bar is in an old brick decor - just... More

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
