This was probably the worse meal we have ever had. The food was swimming in sauce which was oily. The pasta was undercooked and hard as a rock. The seafood wasn’t fresh, couldn’t even find the scallops, prawns were frozen and small in size.

We won’t be back and will never recommend this restaurant to anyone

So glad we stumbled across this gem. Absolutely delicious. It was a little hard to find amongst all of the other restaurants but so worth the effort. We had salads, pasta, cocktails a little wine and saved room for dessert. Everything was awesome!

Loved the Beef Carpaccio, didn't love the Pappardelle - was expecting it to be softer, but that's my own preference.

Service could have been better. Found it uncomfortable that the server had brought oil out before the bread and the bread came out seconds before our meal. Had to ask more than once for things we needed like a spoon for the pasta. Meal was great. Location was cute. Good experience. Would recommend restaurant moves there menu outside off the the side because we’re we were sitting people kept walking up too look it took away from the dinner and ambience.

Good food, however, it was super hot in the restaurant. Not sure if it’s just because the AC was broken or if it’s that way on a normal day. But it made the meal quite unenjoyable.

Also, service was quite slow.

Living in Rome for 6 years its hard to find authentic Italian food elsewhere. Robba da Matti is Rome outside of Rome. The quality of food is phenomenal. Highly recommend for those looking for true authentic Italian food.

We had their date night special. It was a 3 course meal with a bottle of wine for $122. The dinner was delicious, good value and the service came at a good pace. The restaurant was small and very warm - not sure if they can do anything about the heat, the door and windows were opened. Otherwise it’s a good place for an intimate dinner.

This was an adorable restaurant with delicious food. I was a little disappointing with the lacking of vegan dishes (only one and it wasn't a main dish either). The sangria was fabulous and I loved the tininess of the restaurant making it a more intimate experience

The service was excellent with time to finish the appetizers before the main course arrived. My pasta was delicious though on the “al dente” side. Small but good wine list. It is very hot inside so ensure you get an outside table. The space between the tables is quite small so move about delicately and hold on to your drinks when people attempt to get by! I would definitely return!

Very disappointing. Service was incredibly slow, they gave our plates to the wrong table so we were waiting for over 45 mins for food. In the mean time, no water was served, so we were just dehydrated and hungry. When the food came, it was bland and the clams were gritty. No one offered anything for the long wait except for a sorry. Also had utensils dropped on me as well. Staff seems messy and inexperienced, it was aggravating watching cooks just stand there doing nothing while we were starving with no food and hearing the waitress apologize to everyone all night because this restaurant couldnt get it together. We wont be going back again.

Although the food was pretty good, the service was not on par. We ordered an appetizer and our main meal wasnt brought out until we finished it (which was not told to us until we asked why it was taking so long).

The pastas were way too hard. The sauce for both of our plates had a very weak taste. The crème brûlée was uncooked and there was a hair in it. We definitely won’t be going back there.
