What people are saying

  • “Roma nel Piatto” by La Pecora Nera gave them a score of 7 out of 10 points (“good, very good”) in 2018 and 6.5 points in 2017 (“sufficient”).
  • “I Cento” by EDT ranks this as their #46 restaurant in Rome for 2018.
  • Puntarella Rossa (2017) explains that Caffè Propaganda has been recently renewed, with a new menu by chef Fabio Pecelli and an exclusively natural wine list (they share an owner with natural wine bar Litro). They show a photo of the tortelli liquido di carbonara that looks so radically different from mine above that I can’t imagine the same chef could have prepared both dishes.
  • The Monocle Guide to Rome (2017) says you can find “first-rate cocktails” at the zinc bar made by Patrick Pistolesi, “one of the city’s best pair of hands when shakers and jiggers are required.”
  • HeartRome (2017) reports from the official relaunch party that “the philosophy behind their new format is avant-garde; in fact they’ve created an entire menu named Hotel Avantguardia which is designed to take diners on a trip around the world with cocktails and snacks.” She says “I’ve eaten and drank here many times and it really hasn’t ever disappointed.”
  • Scatti di Gusto (2011) complains about the place being filled with food bloggers, appreciates the pricey macarons, and ultimately gives it a rating of only 1 out of 4 plates.
  • Katie Parla (2010) reports around opening time that “this place has generated more buzz than any other place in Rome I can remember. This is due mainly to the cast of characters involved: the beloved Chef Arcangelo Dandini, well-respected Pastry Chef Stéphane Betmon, fancy owners, a PR firm, a killer location, and a clientele that eats up trendy with more gusto than actual food.” Cut to the chase: she hates it. “The whole concept is just so boring. Hasn’t hype over clearly defined substance been done before?”
