About the restaurant Benso

ATTENZIONE AL CLIENTE - Il Ristorante Benso si trova nel cuore di Roma, a pochi passi dalla Domus Aurea e dal Colosseo. Si tratta di un ambiente rustico, accogliente e caratteristico, in stile tipico da bistrot. Il personale di sala è sempre molto cortese, simpatico e disponibile. Inoltre il ristorante offre musica dal vivo della tradizione romana venerdì e sabato.

COSA SI MANGIA - Il locale propone una cucina tipicamente romana, con piatti preparati esclusivamente con ingredienti freschi e genuini. Inoltre, il menù dispone anche di portate pensate apposta per i vegetariani.

PIATTI FORTI - Le specialità della casa sono la mozzarella di bufala con prosciutto, alici e salmone, la caprese con pesto alla genovese, i rigatoni alla carbonara, la tagliata al rosmarino, le orecchiette all'arrabbiata e l'ottimo tiramisù fatto in casa.

Very good quality food and service. Joanna was excellent and attentive. There was a small problem with the order, and the staff noticed it quickly and wanted to rectify it immediately. As a matter of fact what I received was excellent so I kept it. Would definitely recommend this place for good quality authentic food.

In Benso they served The best risotto ai funghi porcini I’ve ever eaten! Place was cosy, easy to access and find. Serving was good as well. We had a child with us and she was beautifully served also.

I had a lunch in this restaurant . It's fine. But there was too little sauce in Caesar salad. Fresh juice was good. I certainly can recommend this restaurant with the Fork discount.

They make good pasta and lasagna, but the secondi could be better. Drinks are way too overpriced.
Deserts were good.
In any case, good place to go when you happen to be around the Colosseo!

We came across this place on tripadisor and it didn’t disappoint. It was a short stroll from where we were staying, it was busy and bustling. The service was excellent and whilst we tried our best limited Italian - the staff were happy to speak in English. We had the buratta, salami and fried courgette flowers to start, followed by a huge pizza, pasta with meatballs and a couple of other pasta dishes. Very good food, great service. Would definitely recommend

Highly recommend! Excellent restaurant just a street away from the Colosseum. Staff were very friendly and attentive to our family. You can’t miss on any dish chosen. We enjoyed it so much the first time that we went back again.

The service was good. It was in a heavy tourist area, and the food was not as flavorful as I’ve had in some of the more off-the-beaten-path places. That said, the bread was the best I’ve had since visiting Italy.

Very nice restaurant with great food. We ordered four various dishes and each one was great. Because of selection of dishes without meat it's vegetarian-friendly place :) With app "The Fork" prices were very, very good. We recommend this restaurant :)

Nice little place within a few minutes walk from
The colosseum and roman forum, our waiter, Raz was very welcoming and friendly. We booked a table via the fork and received 30% off but we would have paid full price because the food and service was fab. We had a nice table outside and great service from Raz. The food was lovely. We had bruschetta to start and 3 different pasta dishes. My favourite was the spaghetti and meatballs! Definitely stop by on your trip to Rome
