Ristorante Alla Rampa
In good weather the garden and the lovely square are used to seat guests who face Trinità dei Monti. The speciality is Penne Alla Rampa with Gruyère and Speck, and the dishes are mostly traditional like the Ravioli filled with Spinach and Ricotta Cheese and the Tonnarelli with Mazzancolle. The pasta is made on the premises. The meat dishes are very good such as the Escalopes with Calvados, Carpaccio and Ossobuco to name but a few. The desserts are made on the premises and there is a good choice of wines. The furnishings are traditional but not overly so, the tablecloths are crisp and fresh, and in summer the air-conditioning reduces the heat. The tables are well arranged so that even if the restaurant is full you can still eat comfortably.
While on a train to Pompeii, an American travelling to Naples told us that he had been told about this restaunant but could not go. We went instead. it was the most lovely spread of antipasti, fresh, delicious, and bountiful. We made a meal of antipasti and dessert.
We are going back to Rome in 6 weeks and it is the first restaurant we will go to.
The antipasta is not of this world, never tasted anything like it before or since, can't wait to go back!!
Great location by the Spanish steps in Piazza di Spagna. Go early, beat the crowd, eat more at the self serve antipasta bar!
I love the location--under the Spanish Steps, but secluded enough to avoid huge crowds of tourists waiting in line. The antipasti bar is incredible--huge and great variety--an entire meal by itself. I always return here every trip to Rome, and I find more discoveries on its extensive menu each time. This is an excellent choice in the middle of a busy afternoon.
very nice restuarent, and extremly good service.
The food was unbeliveble outstanding and very hot. I almost burned my toung. the waiter was extremly friendly, and showed us his motorcycle.
We are lokking forward to dinning there again.
Not many restaurants make an impression on me but this restaurant is one I consider to be one of my top 5 restaurants in the world. That said, I haven't been there since 1990 but remember as if it were yesterday. As I recommend it to everyone who is going to Rome, I understand it can be hit or miss with regards to service. But who really cares because you are going there for the Antipasti bar, PERIOD! I think it helps to eat later with the local crowd and if you look Italian/speak all the better. Service may suffer if you apear as an "ugly American". Just know it's only 1 of 2 resturants I remember fondly in all of Europe and I love fine food!
The food and service is amazing. I have been every time I have gone to Rome. The antipasto is perfect. Don't bother ordering anything else...but dessert. Try the merengue covered in a warm chocolate. The service is the best in Italy. They never miss a beat.
The cooking here is Italian and well seasoned. Starters include ravioli with spinach and ricotta, pasta and bean soup, risotto
with herbs, bucatini all'amatriciana and gnocchi on Thursdays. Second course dishes include roast pork and roulades, and there are ...

find Cannelloni, pasta and chickpeas, Penne Arrabbiata, Rigatoni with Tuna and Broccoli, Saltimbocca, Tripe and Oxtail.
