    Absolutely the very best meal and service I've had this trip. Friendly and knowledgeable team and an excellent meal. Raw seafood platter to start was incredibly fresh and delicious and a great wine list to match with very reasonable prices to match the high calibre of food. So good in fact will return for my last meal in Italy tomorrow. Really can't reccomend it enough, terrific views as well

    We had a perfect Christmas Eve dinner. Johnny, the sommelier, welcomed us warmly. We had a several dishes including amuse bouches and apertifs. The pasta for our children was excellent and we enjoyed our secondi plate. We appreciated all of the wine, amari and meal recommendations. Would go again for the high end service, wine, and food, even with our 8 and 10 YO kids in tow. Grazie mille!

    The dishes were delicious and creative. I'm often disappointed with the quality to price ratio with upscale Italian restaurants, but the food was excellent and well presented. I tried some flavor combinations that were new to me, and I was pleasantly surprised, especially with the Agnolotti alla zucca, which had a sweet licorice-infused butter sauce matched with very strong Parmigiano Reggiano (60 month). I was skeptical because I'm often not a fan of anise-based flavors, but this worked extremely well.

    Amazing setting in a piazza that was once a Roman amphitheatre. It is a small menu of well cooked dishes, and a fabulous wine list. If you are fed up with tourist trap trattorias and want something better this is a great choice.

    Previous reviews of Peperosa indicated that it would be very good but it was really excellent. Every course was better than the last, the raw seafood platter was delicious, just the right amount of each type and amazingly fresh. The pasta dishes were fabulous, a subtle mix of flavors. And there were frequent additions to the meal with little tidbits from the chef. Every course was explained by our server and we really enjoyed that. I highly recommend having a meal here.

    Lovely new venue and ambitious crew. Other reviews were mixed, but it seems they are getting their feet under them. Service was professional, dishes were delicious, well priced and beautifully presented. I am rooting for them! We will be back!
