Reservations via email for Armando al Pantheon?

Has anyone made a dinner reservations for Armando al Pantheon via email? Did you re-confirm once you got to Rome? I'm curious whether or not this will work.

      I'm looking at dinnertime instead of lunchtime. That's why I'm curious about reservations. It's close to my hotel, so I can get there and eat before I crash from jetlag :-)

        I was able to make my reservation with email. Fabrizio replied within a few hours. I'm leaving for my trip in a couple of hours. I'll write up a mini-review when I get home.

          1. reservations are a good thing here! they open for dinner at 7:30 and there were people, with reservations, lined up outside to get in! By far one of our favorite spots to eat!!!

              the online menu looks amazing! what is the cost if you eat off of the menu tavola? I hope it's in our price range ($30pp)!

                I just got back last night from my travels to Italy. I'm so glad that I made that reservation for Armando - it was full the entire night, and I had an 8pm reservation. People were being turned away, and that was a Thursday night. It's small - like 12 tables. It was an utterly divine dinner. I was by myself, and I was treated well. It's not a formal place, but very friendly. A lively staff kept my entertained just by watching them work. My entire bill was 41 Euro, and that was for the bread basket, 1/2 bottle of Monteverde wine, one bruschetta appetizer (easily the best I've had - the olive oil used was very good tasting), then the tagliatelli with asparagus and strawberries (not on the menus, but it was recommended here by a fellow chowhounder), the chef's hazelnut cake with a ricotta and strawberry jam filling (when I saw it sitting on the counter next to me, I knew I had to have a slice for dessert!!) and a cafe. I'll say that every food item that passed by me on the way to other tables looked good, too. I did not feel that I was overcharged for anything. It was the perfect restaurant for the beginning of my trip. I was going to thank everyone who recommended the place.
