    they brought us the first dishes after pasta. and I didn’t eat the risotto because it was not tasty and immediately returned it to the waiter. and the waiter didn’t even ask why I returned the whole dish, but simply took it.

    Staff very welcoming, timely service, and food was great. Very busy so suggest making reservations. Convenient location to the Vatican without being on the busier street.

    The food was very good, best meal we had in Rome (only stayed 2 days). The puntarelle salad was top notch and a great suggestion, super refreshing. Chocolate cake for dessert is a must! The atmosphere was very chill and the service was also the best we had in Rome thanks to our server Luigi! We chose to sit outside which was fine at first but got pretty cold at the end of our meal. There were blankets provided but I think a heat lamp would’ve been more effective.

    We always visit at least once whenever we are in Rome .... so at least once each year for the last 6-7 years. Have recommended to many of our friends!

    Lovely spot near the Vatican but restaurant interior was entirely too warm. The food was outstanding and worth the price. Portion size and service were fantastic!

    We stopped here after a very long tour of the Vatican. Fredrica waited on us and she was wonderful. The food and wine were excellent. Just what we needed to perk us up.

    The restaurant is terrific - the staff is lively and the food is quite good. This is a must visit if you are near the Vatican. The sea bass was very good.

    The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our daughter has multiple food allergies, and they listened to our concerns and put our minds at ease. They even suggested a dessert that was safe for her, and she loved it. We dined outside. A charming setting and a short walk to Saint Peters afterwards!

    Excellent food and very friendly service. Arlu is one of our favourites when we're in Rome.

    We made a reservation for a group of 14 people. Even though this is a small establishment, they were very accommodating. The servers were excellent and the food was top notch. It would be an especially nice place for a couple wanting an intimate dinner. One of the couples in our group was celebrating an anniversary and the restaurant was able to provide a special tiramisu for us. We had a very enjoyable evening, our last night in Rome.

    Good location, food prices above average, but presentation and quality way above average, so worth the extra €. The offering of house wine by the carafe, also made the final overall price excellent value for money. Service was very attentive and friendly. Highly recommend this place.

    I made a reservation several weeks in advance to ensure a good table, but I was very disappointed that the staff gave another group of 4 my reservation in error. We were given a back corner table instead of the prime table that was reserved for us. When we were given a tray of olive oil and basalmic vinegar for our bread, we found the bottle of oil empty. Also, 3 of our entrees came out together and then we waited 3-4 minutes for the fourth to arrive. Overall, the food was good, but the staff seemed panicked and rushed. The experience was disappointing.
