Critic Reviews for Suburra Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Its depiction of a modern-day Rome with all the evil that men do is a raw and compelling one, uncolored by sentiment and nostalgia. This could be Netflix's next big foreign addiction.

Suburra has been punching above its weight class from the jump.

Jun 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Suburra, in particular, manages to combine the pacing of a thriller with an almost sociological diorama of Roman society, a slicker, abbreviated version of The Wire's portrait of Baltimore.

Feb 13, 2018 | Full Review…

The international crime drama marks the platform's first foray into Italian language, and it is dark - in the best, most watchable way possible.

Dec 19, 2017 | Full Review…

While there's a lot going on in Suburra, the show knows how to hook you in the beginning.

... Suburra is the kind of show that grabs your attention and doesn't let go.

Audience Reviews for Suburra: Season 1

    Great series, there are some unexplained holes in the plot, and some moments seem to be stretched (like the most powerful gangster in Rome personally kills people, risking by his freedom? seriously? he doesn't have his mobsters?) But overall, great story, amazing actors. Worth watching

    Fast moving thriller that is worth watching. Overstated acting and semi credible plot but lots of twists and turns do seem to work and I wanted to keep watching until the very last episode

    Authentic scenery. Great Italian dialogue and good acting. Feels like being in Rome and Ostia in the middle of an Italian crime drama.

    I came across Suburra unexpectedly as I was looking for Italian programs on Netflix, and I couldn't be happier that I did. My father is an immigrant from Rome so I have heard about the different factions of the show throughout my life. I found it fascinating to see everything come to life and while I understand that much of the program is fictional, it definitely provides some perspective on the realities that the city has been facing over the years. I am just an average viewer, but I find the story telling and character development exceptional. For American viewers out there, I have been describing Suburra as a coss between The Sopranos and Sons of Anarchy due to the introspection to the various groups and the fact that I would suspect that many Romans would argue that it highlights the worst elements of Roman culture. I highly recommend that non-Italian speakers watch in the original language with subtitles to ensure that you don't lose the nuances of the actors' steller performances. For speakers of Roman dialect, you will inevitably enjoy the subtle details that are included in the dialogue. My one criticism as a speaker of the dialect (and I may be nitpicking) is that while the subtitles will allow you to clearly follow the dialogue, I found that there were often lines that missed the mark on the true translation of the various sayings and colloquialisms that were brilliantly interwoven into the script. Nevertheless in my opinion the show is very well done and I hope that there will be many seasons to enjoy. Bravo Netflix. Congratulazioni a tutti gli attori che hanno fatto una programma proprio bellissima e vi auguro bocca al lupo a tutti!

    One of the best mob tv series from Netflix Italy. Watch the first episode, you'll be hooked.

    I have not binge-watched a full season since Breaking Bad, which says a lot about how engaging and spectacular Suburra is. It captures you from the first scene till the end.

    Italy's answer to Narcos as other reviewers have already said, Italian with sub titles , not hard to follow and you can always pause and replay.
