    Great and quick service. The duck starter and cod main were fantastic. The pistachio pudding is an absolute must!

    I had a seafood pasta and polpo, both were excellent, same thing about the white wine which was recommended by the extremely welcoming, friendly and professional staff. For the dessert I had pistacchio semifreddo. The semifreddo itself was excellent but I didn't like the salty additional stuff ( salty nuts probably), for me a dessert must be sweet by 100%! This might be a question of taste. Their espresso, while being of course acceptable, was not the best I had in Rome. In Rome you are spoilt with excellent coffee almost everywhere and this espresso was just average. Still, I recommend this place, especially with the discount of the fork it is really very very good ????

    Staff were very friendly and the service was great. The food puts a modern twist on traditional flavors and the portion sizes were larger than what was expected from the pictures. Will definitely eat here again next time I’m in Termini.

    Friendly and attentive staff. Nice food. A bit different from your usual Italian food. Very good price with discount; however overpriced without. Would recommend.

    Definitely, the best culinarian experience during a few day stay in Rome. Exquisite cuisine which unifies the best elements of mediterranean food. We, me and my wife, tasted seafood dishes.

    The staff were all incredibly friendly and professional, and the food was delightful. Will definitely come back if I’m in Rome again. It’s very close to termini but off a quiet street, so you don’t have to eat your meal with loud traffic passing by.

    We returned to Culinaria for our second meal in two nights, we'd had a long day and it was so convenient to have somewhere we knew was excellent nearby. This time I had the salmorejo starter, which was delicious. Then the duck confit, served with a very tasty cheese and onion pancake. Service was great again. Definitely a recommendation for anyone visiting Rome.

    We were at Culinaria on a Thursday night just as Rome was reopening to tourists. Our hotel recommended it and we were very glad they did. The welcome was very friendly and, although the menu was reduced due to the current circumstances, it was still difficult to choose from the delicious-sounding options. I had fried anchovies as a starter, then black and white pasta (chocolate fettuccine in white sauce) as the first main course and lamb cutlets as the second. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was friendly and the recommended wine was great. Culinaria is well worth a visit if you're in Rome, we'll definitely be coming back on our next visit.

    Nice place, great food. Quality/prize for who love is acceptable. Location is nice, place is not on Main Street but not complex to find it

    Both the food and the service were outstanding. A few gluten free options available and an alternative complementary appetiser was offered. The duck with liquorice and the pistachio dessert were the stand out dishes for us. Prices were a bit higher than the other restaurants we went to but we thought our meal was worth it.

    The restaurant is nice, very creative cuisine and the only minus was the food was rather salty. We thought the chef was in love. :) for the rest really it is worth tasting their cuisine.

    Small and intimate restaurant with good food. Great service and attention to the details. Enjoyed that you can see the chef preparing your dishes behind a glass wall. Great for couples though a family of 8 was there and took over almost half the room.

    We came here to find a nice quiet place without too many tourists and we found the right spot. The waitress greeted us upon entering and showed us our table. I can be really short about the food. The preparation was done very professional and the taste was very good. I’ve never had such good tuna steak in my life. It literally melted on my tongue! Would highly recommend this place :) P.S. try the pistache dessert. It’s heaven.

    Very inviting restaurant just a short walk from Roma Termini. Although more of a local crowd for lunch, the dinner crowd was a combination of tourist and locals. We were a table of 4 (2 couples) from the midwest America. Each couple shared a first course and everyone selected a different second course. This included pasta, salad, beef and fish dishes. We were very pleased with the choices as the dishes were very flavorful, well portioned and reasonably priced. The owner and his team were very friendly and welcoming. Highly reccomend.

    A bit tatty decor but good service and welcoming. We were elbow to elbow with the next table and as they were deep frying we left smelling like a chip shop. My wife’s rigatoni starter and steak main were good but my 26euro lobster starter lacked seasoning and was bland. My cod main course was tasteless and rubbery. It’s a capital city so food will be expensive and not as good as say Tuscany but this was disappointing even so. Would not go back.

    In short, service was good but the food was a disappointment. It seems to be more about presentation here than quality and taste. Food was not served hot, and it did not live up to the hype. My husband had the carbonara and I had the cod. The cod was served with over salted bacon (and I like seasoned foods and salt) and a strange, bland and cold seaweed. The cod was undercooked at first (did not flake apart - had to pull, indicating it was underdone). I sent it back to be cooked a bit more even though the chef indicated he thought it was cooked correctly. It returned cooked but still hardly edible, for me or my husband, as the flavors hadn’t changed. I wish I had just sent it back altogether and ordered something else. And the hubby nearly did not eat all of his carbonara, which is extremely rare for him. We didn’t want to have to go to another restaurant at 9:00 or face getting hungry before bed, so he just ate it anyway. I left most of my plate. When we got the check and was asked how everything was, even though it was awkward I explained that I didn’t enjoy the dish especially the “vegetable” (seaweed). I have had plenty of seaweed salads in my lifetime and this was like no other. I didn’t bother addressing the rest of the plate. The gentlemen (manager?) was apologetic and seemed to go over to explain to the chef. We were about to leave after paying, but the chef wanted to send a dessert for our dissatisfaction. It was a pistachio based dish, and that was truly delicious. We greatly appreciated the sentiment and enjoyed it, but altogether we wished for a better experience overall. My intention is not to bash the restaurant, but rather inform future consumers and hope for improvement by this establishment.

    Outstanding food. I have lived in Naples for a year now and visiting Rome a dozen times. This was hands down the best carbonara I have ever had. My family also gave loved what they ordered. Service was friendly and fast. Great music played during dinner. Highly recommended.

    Friendly service, good food and absurdly large portions! Portion sizes were similar to that of an American diner, and I was only eating half of each course.
