    Really nice place and people. Food was super nice. Pasta with mushrooms and cheese gnocchi were great. Would definitely recommend! Great Italian place for a romantic dinner.

    Food was excellent, food arrived at a nice rate too, not rushed or waited ages between each course. It was on our doorstep too and it was an amazing find. Definitely worth going for all Rome visitors.

    Johanna was really nice and welcoming. The food, wines and Aprerol Spritz cocktails were good and very cheap with the Fork’s discount. This is definitely a place to try when you are visiting Rome.

    Great place with delicious food. Unlike other places in Rome, here the staff is very polite and responsive. A special thank you I wanted to tell Joanna. She helped us and made our dinner great. Meals served very quickly, poroli large but most importantly delicious!

    For our 40th wedding anniversary, we chose to come to Italy with our last contact from the wedding party.. For the actual day of the anniversary I looked for a restaurant close to our hotel, since we were just arriving in Rome. This restaurant was FANTASTICO. The waiter waited until I had selected the wine, and then listened to our request for some smaller dishes for the ladies. He suggested a feast for us. We started with salami and cheese antipasti, a couple of pasta dishes, and finally filet and veal cutlets. Mouth watering, tender, and freshly seasoned. We are now digesting our dinner and reminiscing. Oh, the food bill with water coffee and tea was 74 euros. I ordered a wine that I had heard about, but never thought that we could have. A truly memorable night.

    Very good quality food and service. Joanna was excellent and attentive. There was a small problem with the order, and the staff noticed it quickly and wanted to rectify it immediately. As a matter of fact what I received was excellent so I kept it. Would definitely recommend this place for good quality authentic food.

    In Benso they served The best risotto ai funghi porcini I’ve ever eaten! Place was cosy, easy to access and find. Serving was good as well. We had a child with us and she was beautifully served also.

    I had a lunch in this restaurant . It's fine. But there was too little sauce in Caesar salad. Fresh juice was good. I certainly can recommend this restaurant with the Fork discount.

    They make good pasta and lasagna, but the secondi could be better. Drinks are way too overpriced. Deserts were good. In any case, good place to go when you happen to be around the Colosseo!

    We came across this place on tripadisor and it didn’t disappoint. It was a short stroll from where we were staying, it was busy and bustling. The service was excellent and whilst we tried our best limited Italian - the staff were happy to speak in English. We had the buratta, salami and fried courgette flowers to start, followed by a huge pizza, pasta with meatballs and a couple of other pasta dishes. Very good food, great service. Would definitely recommend
