On the internet it seems to be some sort of historic place, though perhaps because of this it is unnecessarily expensive. It is thus full of crude Lazio folk with money.The food was good, though the service was bizarre. We asked for half litre of house wine, but instead the waiter opened a full bottle put it on another table... More

In my opinion the Fico is an outstanding restaurant with great food and all the charm of Italy. The Fico is a warm and inviting 1000 year old building. Locals and visitors find this to be a delightful place and enjoyable experience.

This is restaurant has a charming setting, that should make a great (in the right company also romantic) evening. The attraction is the antipasti buffet, which is outstanding in variety and presentation. The pasta, fish and meat are absolutely okay for this level of restaurant, but not better nor worse than one can find in a dozen other places within... More

I was in Rome last year and a friend took me to Al Fico, I loved it I even took photos of the food. I let the waiter order for me and everything was outstanding. If you're ever in Rome please stop by and enjoy one of the best meals you will ever have.
