Armando al Pantheon review 1 Users say 1/5 Rate it

Armando is a simple, no-frills trattoria of the kind that is very rare to find just a few yards from an A-league tourist attraction. But, right by the Pantheon, it has all the hallmarks of authenticity: cork walls, indifferent artworks, a pretty, stained-glass entrance and friendly service from the family that has run it for the last couple of generations. The menu is almost unchanging (we can vouch personally for the last 21 years), with classics like fettucine all'Armando (with mushrooms, peas and tomatoes) or ossobuco - reliable but with few pretensions. The only concessions to changing times are some filling vegetarian dishes and a much-expanded wine list, which now contains seriously interesting bottles.

When in Rome, skip it!
I ordered roasted veal with potatoes. I was told that it is a typical Roman dish.
The veal was dry, a corner even curled up on one of the slices. The potatoes were at least two days old. This restaurant does not deserve a recommendation but rather a warning.

We have been to Rome perhaps 20 times or more over the last 20 years and Armando's is our favorite restaurant. Traditional Roman food cooked well and really great hospitality. Chef's daughter is head waiter/manager; her uncle runs the cash register. This is a well kept secret.....please don't tell anyone else!!!
