    Very enjoyable meal, fresh ingredients and excellent value for money. If you aren’t looking specifically for it, probably easy to walk past but you shouldn’t. Great quality and value for Rome.

    This place is a hidden gem! The owner is super friendly and very helpful and the kitchen staff is also very nice. Not much English is spoken here but we were able to communicate anyway. Prosecco on the house was followed by a delicious burrata, spaghetti vongole and bucatini amatriciana. It was all perfect, the male restroom was very clean. But be aware this is not the place for a romantic dinner, it is more for people who come as a group and want to have conversation.

    Tremendous dinner with the family owners Roberto and Mateo being wonderful hosts. Our preference for English was easily complied with and my wife was able to use her high school French with Roberto. Well worth the trip from the tourist areas to enjoy Fiorenzas culinary skills...

    המסעדה היא יותר בסגנון בר- מסעדה, קטנה ורועשת . בעל המקום נחמד מאוד, מקבלים את פניכם עם כוס למברוסקו וברוסקטה. האוכל מצוין, הזמנו פלטת נקניקים וגבינות , רביולי ופסטה שמכינים במקום . החסרון הינו באזור המסעדה, אם אתם לא שוהים באזור סן לורנצו לא הייתי מתאמצת להגיע, גם כי האזור עצמו של המסעדה לא סימפטי, מלא מהגרים , נראה שונה מכל רומא התיירותית שמכירים.

    The food was delicious and the welcome from the family who host and serve was warm and attentive. We were there for three hours! And that is not typical of us .

    What a gem! Decided to try this restaurant after reading all the great reviews and since we were staying in the area. I’m glad we did, it did not disappoint! My husband and I were greeted with a round of prosecco and bruschetta which was very nice. Our pasta was just amazing!! We had the carbonara which was probably the best we’ve ever had, and the fettuccine with mushroom and cream sauce which was also delicious!! The owner is charming as well :) we will definitely be back!

    What a surprise! This is a gem of a restaurant in San Lorenzo. The son of the owners speaks passable English. His mother is the chef. We got there at 8 pm and were the only customers until 9. We chatted with the owner in French and his son too. They brought us a glass of prosecco and a tomato bruschetta and some delicious roast pork slices, as well as complimentary tiramisu, all on the House. Fantastic spinach and shrimp salad, and pasta dishes. We’ll return several times this week, and bring friends!

    Welcomed me with open arms, prosecco, and bruschetta. The food was obviously made fresh in house. I genuinely felt like they were honored to have me

About the restaurant

COMFORT - Il ristorante Pensavo Peggio si trova a Roma, a pochi passi dall’Università Sapienza e dalla Basilica di San Lorenzo al Verano. La struttura presenta un arredamento semplice e minimale, che caratterizza un’atmosfera sempre tranquilla e molto rilassata.

COSA SI MANGIA - Il menù è esposto su di una lavagna all’interno del locale e propone specialità romanesche accanto a piatti tipicamente mediterranei. Ottime le birre artigianali come accompagnamento.

PORTATE CONSIGLIATE - Da provare senza dubbio i tonnarelli cacio e pepe, i paccheri all’amatriciana, la tartare di manzo con puntarelle e stracciatella e la cheesecake alle pesche.
