We happened upon this place while casting about one evening looking for dinner. It turned out to be a great choice. They were very busy and had to squeeze us in. I get the impression that a reservation would be a good idea.
The staff was very good and well trained. The restaurant was very clean with an exposed kitchen. It had a busy but friendly feel.
The quality of the product use in the preparation of the dishes was excellent. The wine and bread were both very good.
The menu was typically Roman with a bit of inventiveness.
This restaurant is a bit more upscale than we are accustom to but I feel like they delivered.
Favorite Dish: I had an excellent Pasta Fagoli followed by a perfect insalata mista. We just had the house wine and it was very good.
Bob had a very nice steak and Barbara had some very nice stuffed pasta.
Anywhere else in the world, I would avoid a restaurant with the name Maccheroni. But not in Rome, where if it had served bad food, it probably would not have lasted, at least among the locals. Ristorante Maccheroni serves delicious Roman cuisine, complemented by other regional Italian dishes. It is located at a very charming piazza, just north of the Pantheon, next to a couple of other popular restaurants and wine bars.
We enjoyed a cheese plate, ravioli with pumpkin flowers, amatricciani and a plate of sausages. We never thought we would finish but we ate every bite it was so good! I will say that the bathrooms are for the guests only, they are unisex and they enforce that policy strictly. I saw them turn people away who only wanted to come in and use the bathrooms.
Favorite Dish: Sausages. They were just spiced and grilled perfectly.
Great local hang out with pastas of all kinds, caprese salads, better to get a table outside as inside it was a bit warm. Staff had great personalities.
