    Wonderful food just steps away from our hotel in Rome. Read about it in a travel book that was purchased in San Francisco.

    We loved the light lasagna, the grilled octopus was perfect, and the semifreddo of torroncini with chocolate and grappa was our all time favorite. Only the raviolini with broccoli and anchovies was not to our taste as we felt the anchovy taste overwhelmed the vegetable.

    Thanks!

    The restaurant is in a vibrant up and coming area and was quite close to our hotel. When we arrived they were quiet but they filled up quickly, it is a very cosy friendly atmosphere. The menu is not extensive but good. We are non meat eaters and had no problem with selection. The wine menu is large, we were assisted in our choice but did not feel pressured into choices, just right. Service was good, food excellent, not cheap but worth it. Would definitely return.

    We ordered steak well done but the steak was rare inside. However other dishes were nice, like the octopus dish.

    The 2 waitresses were a delight. Very fast, helpful and seamlessly flowing from English to Italian. The lovely starters and bites for dessert on the House were unexpected and delicious. Food was good and interesting. Menu small but unique and daily specials add to it. I will go back to try additional dishes!

    Wonderful food and atmosphere. The linguini Amatriana was the best I have had with the bacon delightfully crisp, but light. Also a nice personal touch that the chef comes helps take your order so you know what is the best dish to have that day. This restaurant is what Rome is all about.

    Great find, off the tourist trail. Good authentic Italian, very tasty. Not much English spoken but no matter, staff very friendly and accommodating. Reasonably priced food, great wine selection.

    This is a lovely place to enjoy dinner, and I have dined here three times. The dishes are a mix of traditional Italian and those with a bit of something new. I love the choices! The decor is charming, and the wait staff extremely pleasant, accommodating, and helpful in explaining the choices. Highly recommended!

    Grazie!!

    We tried Osteria dell'arco a few years ago and then again on Saturday and liked it even more this time. Each menu item is creative, combining traditional dishes and ingredients in a new - and delicious - way. The wait staff were friendly and helpful, and the pace of service was comfortable. The small cozy space is quiet and intimate. I look forward to my next visit!

    Very short menu, but many appealing choices. Food was well-prepared and somewhat unique. Nice side dishes, which is a bit unusual with Italian secondi. Excellent wine recommendations.
