    Best old fashioned in Nashville. No flare, nothing over the top, just pure and delicious. Amazing pasta dishes and small plates and ambiance inside or out. Perfect Nashville evening begins here.

    Tasty. Got there early & sat outside immediately. Yummy cocktails & top-notch house-made pasta. Squid ink bucatini w/octopus hit the spot. Cantaloupe soup was refreshing on a hot day.

    Enjoy some of the best pastas in the country at the restaurant's long bar. Chow down on the bucatini all'amatriciana and garganelli verde with heritage pork ragout. Read more

    Such flavors...the toast with chicken liver and coco is a mouth fiesta for sure. The sweet potato app is truly a whole new flavor profile entirely with a whole lot of umami! The short rib is bomb!

    Rolf's achieves the golden trifecta: amazing food, service, and ambiance. A Nashville gem and top-notch foodie experience. Just go and keep your fingers crossed that Wyatt serves you - what a pro.

    I can't say enough great things about RAD! The cocktails were on point, and literally each dish was great! Make sure you get at least ONE pasta!

    Start with the sourdough with seaweed butter. The half chicken is outstanding. And honestly, any of the pastas (My two favorites: Garganelli Verde with Pork Ragout, Mafalde with Maitake Mushrooms)!

    The sweet corn agnolotti was the crowd favorite, it's fluffy and is a refreshing pop of flavor in your mouth! Definitely order several dishes to share family style so you can try more.

    Garganelli verde with pork ragout was the perfect amount of chewy. Squid ink pasta had a hint of spice at the end of each bite. Order both!

    Beautiful space with lots of natural light. Get a pasta and a main dish and share. The pork is delicious but decadent, sausage plus a shoulder deep fried makes it heavy and filling.

    It's a packed house night after night, and with Bon Appetit and Esquire recently naming it one of the best new restaurants in the country, don't expect it to slow down. [Eater 18 Member]

    I bet everything is rill good but the roasted chicken was superb and you can't go wrong with octopus. And of course the cocktails!

    So. Good. Loved the spiker and sponge cocktail and the montañas verdes cocktail. Loved the faro, the pig's head, the brook trout and the squid ink seafood pasta. Amazing.

    If you get only one dish at Rolf and Daughters, make it a pasta: spaghetti freckled w/ charred ramps and a sunny egg yolk crown. The kitchen cooks to order an average of 150 pasta requests a night. Read more

    Top notch Italian. The smoothest ricotta I have ever had. Be sure not to skip the squid ink pasta and beef tartar.

    Wellll this is my favorite place to eat in Nashville. Drink the Ghost Writer, get the cauliflower/currant/almond side, eat the pork with A SIDE OF PORK.

    Drawing on Northern Italian and Mediterranean influences, they use Southern ingredients to create a dynamic and seasonally-driven menu. The pork ragout pasta literally melts in your mouth. Read more

    Do yourself a favor and get the rigatoni, the Brussels, the pâté, and the seaweed butter, though you really can't go wrong with anything.

    Been wanting to go there for the past 3 years. Perhaps the wait wasn't so worth it. Waited 2 hours for a table because guests take their time eating. Be ready to wait if you don't have a reservation.

    I was very disappointed with this restaurant, not because of the quality(b/c it was delicious), but because of the quantity vs price ratio. People make it seem fancier than it is & it's too expensive
