Excellent food! I was a little surprised to find out, upon my arrival 15 minutes late, that my table had been given to someone else, but the waiter immediately solved the problem.

Everything was wonderful from the food to the service to the ambiance. Except it was really warm and most patrons were saving their brows. Please turn the AC on.

Ristorante Circolo dei Lettori provided us excellent food, service, and value. The gnocchi (my spouse's primi) and my duck breast were exceptional. The duck breast was prepared with plums and red onion in an acidic sauce. The sauce created an excellent contrast among the ingredients.

Everything is perfect in this restaurant: braised beef and veai fillet were juicy, tasteful and outstanding. The sommelier is a woman, expert in her field of activity able to comment very precisely the different wines and corresponding grapes selected in the very rich winelist: our Nebbiolo was excellent. We could profit also from the welcoming Maître d'hotel able to prepare a fine assortment of Italian cheeses ranging from the mildest to the hardest. Don't forget to make a reservation for this worth visiting place.

So hard to find!

We chose this restaurant online because of their rating and nearby location. The biggest challenge of the night was finding it. Thank heavens for Google maps and some kind English-speaking locals! When we arrived at the location, there were no signs just a large wooden door and two military guards? (Still not sure why they were there.) We showed the restaurant name to one of the guards who opened one of he large wooden doors which led into a courtyard. Still no signs for “Stefan”. We then returned to the guard and asked by showing him the written name on my phone, he gestured “down and to the left” which took us to a locked door with what we thought were codes. Trying all with no luck, we were let in by a woman departing. Still no signs. We went up the huge staircase to where we heard people and again showed the written name on my phone. She directed us to a closed door and we had finally found it. All this to say that despite the food being good. It was, in our opinion, not worth the effort. The menu is quite small with very Gucci versions of Italian dishes. Choices of veal, rabbit, ox, beef cheek, cod ravioli but not much for those of us who are less adventurous in our tastes. My husband loved his mussel soup, my cod stuffed ravioli was delicious but served as a small first course and my husband enjoyed the duck breast. One of the interesting options is wine by the glass that is paired to go with what you have ordered. The service is superb. We were greeted with complimentary Prosecco that was one of the best we’ve had and the amuse bouche and selection of breads were outstanding. This is really a non-touristy place, which we enjoyed and had there been a simpler choice in entrees, definitely a five star experience for us.

Some of the courses were very good and some disappointing (fish was dry and tasteless). We expected more based on prior reviews. We also thought it strange that we received a message that their credit card machine was broken and must pay cash. While that was not a problem a restaurant of that caliber should have a good relationship with their card terminal provider. Overall just ok, we would not return.

Good Morning Ms. Susan
Unfortunatly that day we had a real issue with the credit cards terminal....
But I sent you a message by mobile,
We are a restaurant, not a company, we don't have any special contract or special treatment with bank, only regular.
I'm sorry about the fish, but I ask you several time if the dinner was good, and always you said yes, and now you write this review.
I don't understand.
Any way Good life..

Possibly the best meal we have ever had. Cost is very reasonable for the quality of the food. Would highly recommend the tasting menu with the matching wine.

Great service. Really tasty food - we had the lamb and the braised beef in Nebbiolo wine sauce. Both delicious. They even had a nice Barbaresco by the glass (vs. ordering a full bottle.) The atmosphere is a bit old-fashioned, but lovely setting and quiet. If you're looking for more modern with lots of young energy, this is not the place! But there were families in addition to couples - just a bit formal if that's what you're looking for (which we were and liked.) We would definitely go again!

"La “mia” Finanziera" is so good. I recomend with green salad.
