The food was really good, I had the gnocchi with cheese and truffle. However the wine or glass had a weird odor and the service was just average. I had read it was a family run restaurant and I was expecting a more welcoming atmosphere,...but it was very cold, specially for Italy. I almost walked back out because I felt so unwelcome and saw another table do the same when they arrived. In my opinion, the food and the whole experience was not worth the price.More

This is an excellent restaurant for a genuine Italian meal, away from the normal tourist haunts. People who haven't booked are queuing outside!

We were a group of 7 - couldn't get in on spec one evening, but successfully booked for 7.30 sitting the next day. We were all delighted with all the food - lots of raving about the pasta and puddings. Great zabaione - rich and...creamy. Very helpful and patient service. A really good place to eat, but do book (I think that has to be in person or by telephone).More

Maybe this was a bad night, but, the orders were wrong twice and we are fluent in Italian. The food was average at best. Pasta was OK. Wine are seconds and average pricing. For homemade deserts, a lot to be improved. Two seating times 7:30...(19:30) and 9:30 (21:30)allowed per our call although we noted seats changing at different times. There is better available in Rome.More

The best pasta I’ve ever had in my entire life. Started off with antipasti platter, and then we ordered the spinach lasagna and the tagliatelle al a Bolognese. And finished off with tiramisu! Fantastic service. We had researched extensively for somewhere which was not a...tourist trapped and that’s what we got! In fact the manager actually told us we were the only non-Italians in the whole of the restaurant which we could tell from just listening to everyone else! Honestly my favourite dish my entire stay was the tagliatelle!More

This has to be one of our favorite restaurants in Rome! So wonderful! We booked well in advance as this is very popular! Everything is fresh and superb!! Our waiter, Marco, was fantastic!!! He gave us great recommendations and we did it all. From our...ham and salame appetizer, to Tagliatelle Bolognese, Tortelloni, to the wonderful dessert pudding! We loved it all! Thank you Colline Emiliane for making our evening enjoyable!More

This was the best pasta we had on our entire trip. The tagliatelle is perfection and their pumpkin ravioli are heavenly. Make sure to get reservations before you go.

No - not baby-friendly. It's kind of an intimate setting, tables are close together, not really room for a high-chair.
