Reviewed By Mark B - Cesena, Italy

located in a narrow lane closed to the main square in rieti, it's just in front of the monument of the "center of italy". food is great,we have eaten here several times and it has been always fresh and tasty. we suggest you to taste different types of "tagliata".different types of menu from 9 to 20.really recommend it

Ristorante La Foresta

Reviewed By leech_family - London England

The trip up the hill to la Foresta, just outside Rieti, requires faith the restaurant does exist – SatNav directions are hopelessly inaccurate. It is there and very popular too, a large restaurant with one of the longest wine lists I have ever seen (get recommendations from your waiter). Food generally excellent with a fried “tempura” style veg selection a particular highlight. A wide ranging menu covers fish, meat and pasta choices.

L'Osteria

Reviewed By vagabondfromNY - Water Mill, New York

recommended by friends, this easy to reach osteria within the walls of Rieti was a wonderful find. passing through a narrow access point on the medieval walls of Rieti, was the sweetest little restaurant owned and run by young sisters. the food was plentiful, pleasing to the eye and palate. the ricotta dessert was to die for.

Lovely restaurant serving delicious food at a fair price. The ingredients are high quality and it shows. Excellent, friendly, knowledgable service. The antipasti are fantastic, the pasta - homemade,of course, is very tasty. We will definitely return.

Trattoria La Palazzina

The oldest Restaurant in Rieti, since 1910! Local food, Italian dishes and superior quality meat and cold cuts. Home made pasta and best desserts. Nice garden, car park, free wi-fi, free camper area.

Reviewed By ToddMD - Monterey, California

After living in Italy for over a year this is the best lunch I have had. The real highlight was La Bobba which is a pepper, vegetables, salami on toasted bread. The house starter was very good. All the food was fantastic. The outdoor Seating was superb. I will definitely go back.

Trattoria Tito

Reviewed By Andrew K - Jersey City, New Jersey

Forget the extensive menu outside -- forget the menu altogether: the waiter eventually comes to your table and tells you the three pasta dishes they have, two with meat. Fish? Cod with potatoes and vegetables. Everyone was eating meat and potatoes. The two pasta dishes my wife and I had, served about an hour after we entered, just the third table occupied, were OK, not great. The fourth table, arriving half an hour after we came in, all got their pasta dishes -- two the same we had ordered -- before we did. Bread? Extra charge. After the meal, would you like salad? Sure. They were fine, nothing special. We'll try someplace else next time.

Ristorante a conduzione familiare. Gestito oggi dalla quarta generazione. Cucina tradizionale con materie prime del territorio. Paste fatte a mano dalla proprietaria. Ricerca nelle verdure e nelle carni. Olio di produzione propria

Reviewed By Xueyan D - Hong Kong

Maybe not easy to find, but it's worth the effort. The owner will be glad to suggest the day's speciality (which are all excellent) and which (local) wine goes with it. All at very affordable prices. I will surely visit again if I get the chance.

La Piazzetta

Reviewed By Mark B - Cesena, Italy

this restaurant is hard to find cos it's located in a very small and narrow lane but it's worthwhile lloking for it.
we would recommend it above all for pastas cos the owner will offer you a huge choice of tester. the best is for sure "amatriciana bianca"...a kind of amatriciana but without tomatos. try it

La Taverna del Capitano

Reviewed By Timbledon - Brussels, Belgium

A very successful family lunch at La Taverna del Capitano after a short drive from Casaprota where we were staying for a few days. Superbly cooked fish, tasty wine and very attentive staff made for a successful trip to Rieti. The one let-down was the huge TV on the wall which sadly distracted dad's attention with an old episode of Starsky and Hutch - why do nice restaurants in Italy stick TVs on the wall?! - but there was no fault with the food.
