So that works out to be a 3-Star restaurant in my opinion. Lovely outdoor arbors and gardens are offset by some of the blandest, dullest dishes I’ve ever had in Rome, and that includes take away. From apps to pasta to meat course to dessert,...More

Super service and very good food for the finesmecker, and the wine cellar is an adventure in itself. Must book in advance. Highly skilled and attentive waiters. Also no problem with gluten free food or other allergies. A wonderful experience recommended. Transportation easiest by taxi.
