SOME OF THE REVIEWS FROM OUR guests

Your opinion is our strength.​

5/5

Contrario has become our favorite restaurant and there are many reasons… Upon entering you are immediately greeted by the smile and hospitality of Alex and Anda who, together with Vlad and the other members of the staff, make all their courtesy and experience. The restaurant is warm and welcoming, with the walls filled with an infinite selection of wines that satisfy the eye even before the palate. And then the cuisine, traditional, revisited, excellent. Whether it’s a carbonara or a raw fish, the raw material is excellent and the chef makes each dish a taste experience. To be tried and repeated…over and over again

4/5

The environment is welcoming and intimate, the staff very kind and attentive. We took the puntarelle: perfect, an amatriciana: tasty with a good aftertaste of smoke, some pork ribs with herbs: they melted in the mouth! Choice of wines obviously varied and for all tastes. All a stone’s throw from the Colosseum. To go back!
