A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Alle spalle della conosciutissima zona dei Musei Vaticani ci possiamo imbattere nel ristorante-wine bar ToccoFerro, locale dalla struttura molto originale grazie alla presenza di mattoni a vista in quasi tutto il perimetro. Un luogo accogliente, semplice ma ricercato, che punta su tonalità scure senza risultato troppo formale.

La tradizione culinaria romana è il cardine della proposta gastronomica: sapori conosciuti, rassicuranti, dando spazio anche alla creatività e naturalmente al gusto. Questo mix di elementi ha dato vita ad una filosofia che permette di avere in carta piatti come il “Flan di pecorino Brunelli con carciofo croccante”, i “Tonnarelli cacio e pepe al ragù di polpo”, i “Paccheri di Gragnano all'Amatriciana con guanciale di cinta senese” e il “Tortino al fondente con gelato di crema”.

    A highly creative menu and very attentive service in an attractive setting. The chef takes the menu to a new level combining unique tastes. Don’t miss the fried zucchini flowers with prawns and mozzarella or the sea bass rolls for starters. After that put yourself in the server’s capable hands seeking his recommendations. It’s the best way to learn from a creative chef. Romans have discovered this gem. There were many tables of family and friends gathered there. But international celebrities like Dustin Hoffman have dined here too. When we were there, it was just happy people enjoying food—- the best way to dine. It’s a little difficult to find at night. Coming from Via Candia, it’s half way up the street on the left hand side. (We were on the other side of the street and missed it twice. Enjoy!

    Wow, an amazing dinner. The service was fantastic - the owner (I think he was the owner) served us and let us customize our dishes (selecting different pastas, different sauces). Everything we had was really fresh - we only had seafood dishes but they were incredible - a shrimp tartar dish, full of sweet shrimp, and two orders of the shrimp and squid salad (my wife and I ordered a second shrimp and squid salad because it was so good). Then we got another crispy shrimp appetizer and finished with a seafood gnocchi. Definitely the best meal we had between Rome, Venice and Sardinia (and we pretty much hit most of the top TripAdvisor spots).

    The seafood we had was very good, in particular the squid and the king prawns. Overall, service was good. A bit dark inside because the restaurant was underground but the food and wine make up for it.

    Tocco Ferro is a hidden gem. Our meals were excellent and the service was very good. Especially noteworthy were the pasta, chicken caprese, the Danish steak and the tiramisu.

    My wife and I really enjoyed this restaurant. We let the chef guide the evening and he did a wonderful job. We may have eaten a little too much, but that’s because the food was so good. Well done chef!

    Went here for my wife's birthday during our honeymoon. We had a wonderful time. We loved the ambience and atmosphere of the restaurant with the modern look and hip jazz music. The wait staff and food was excellent. I would highly recommend the chicken caprese and spaghetti and clams. We will definitely be returning the next time we come back to Rome.

    Food was really tasty and service was friendly enough although it seemed the staff were continuously distracted and paying more attention to other things than the customers having dinner.

    Realy good values for the money, really nice place. It can be a little bit tricky to find the restaurant. Nice air conditioning inside with romantic atmosphere, and the tiramisu was to die for.????????
