This restaurant was recommended to us from friends from home and we figured we would give it a chance. It was definitely worth the trip. My husband and I both got the carbonara since it is known for it and we were not disappointed- it was not the best one we had throughout Italy but it was tasty and cooked... More

We were recommended this place by the guy we were renting our apartment from, he assured us we would love it and we sure did! The rigatoni carbonara was simply amazing, al dente and topped with the saltiest crispiest pancetta. Veal scallopini was also a winner! Reasonable prices too. Avoid the tourist traps and come here, you won't be disappointed.

Located at the end of Piazza San Apostoli and close to the Gregoriana, this is a quiet restaurant with the best carbonara anywhere. The involtini is great and so are many other dishes. After dinner you can enjoy complementary sambucca, or limoncello and relax.

My wife and I met an old and dear friend for dinner about 7:30PM, based on his recommendation, as a satisfied customer for many years. His unquestioned first plate was his usual Spaghetti Carbonara, which I also ordered and greatly enjoyed. No wonder..turns out Carbonara is one of Abruzzi's signature dishes. The veal chop was also excellent and with a... More

Luckily our friend had lived in Rome before and frequented this restaurant when he did, or else we might have passed it by. From the outside, it looks quaint, but potentially similar to other places. But we had lunch and dinner there during our trip and both times we had incredible service and food. When we went back for dinner... More

Another ad hoc find when returning from the Forum and looking to get lunch before the storm broke. Friendly welcome by experienced staff who we relied on for choice of wine which proved to be a very good decision as we ordered another bottle of a wonderful Italian Syrah at €17. Food very good and good value for money. Would... More

Маленький уютный, можно даже сказать неприметный ресторан, что ни в коем случае не умаляет его достоинств. Зайдя сюда после целого дня прогулок по Риму, были очень рады спокойной домашней атмосферы царившей в ресторане. Вкусная еда и веселый приветливый официант сделали наши посещение этого ресторана незабываемым. P.S.: My american friend and your daughter, if you are reading this please let me... More

My wife and I went into Rome for dinner from the Airport Hilton, on the hotel's last shuttle into the city after checking into the hotel that evening. The hotel's shuttle drops you off near the Pizza Venezia. We only had a short time [less than three hours before the hotel's last shuttle back to the airport area departed from... More

Went here because others had recommended the carbonara. Thought it was fairly average and a spaghetti alle vongole was similarly mediocre. They also tried to trick us into paying for bread we didn't want. They put it on the table, and we immediately moved it onto the next table, knowing that this is a common trick. However, when our bill... More

We had the misfortune of having our dinner in this restaurant yesterday on the way back from the Colosseum towards our apartment .We sat outside and the waiter was polite enough and brought us a basket of bread with some breadsticks in plastic wrappers. The bread had such a hard crust it was Inedible but we were starving and tired.The... More
