It's difficult when you have to eat out every night in a foreign city. Sometimes you like the look of a place and it's a disappointment. Not in this case. La Buca looked like a 'proper' Italian restaurant. Smart but not formal - never seen a Vespa in a restaurant before - fun idea. Waiters very smart and giving excellent service. Food was not stellar but very good and reasonably priced for Rome. Wine suggestions excellent (I noticed they recommended the reasonably priced wines not the top price) Very nice atmosphere probably because all the customers were happy! I would suggest booking in busier seasons - this was March and it was full.
All in all a very good experience.
