Called at 6;30pm on a Saturday and were told nothing til Monday. Since it was around the corner we walked by any way, the host said they might have a cancellation so we sat at the bar. Lucky for me. The bartender was a true mixologist, I asked what he'd recommend expecting a Negroni or the like and he instead... More

Usually fully packed mostly with italians, tight and noisy place. Authentic design with signs of hundreds and hundreds of visitors being there for decades, warm atmosphere of old family restaurant, efficient service, great food and wine. Definitely worth to visit if you would like to get involved in daily life of this old district of Rome.

First Italian restaurant we have eaten at that actually had flavor to their pasta. Waiter recommended house pasta, fettucini, with fresh mushrooms and cherry tomatoes and a bit spicy, it was delicious. Waiter asked how our food was, he was nice and spoke English well. Tiramisu for dessert was very good also. Definitely recommend this restaurant. If you don't have... More

Some of the best food in Rome—hand down. Not to be confused with the restaurant in Campo de Fiori, with the same name, this place is the real deal. The owner of the apartment we rented told us about it, and I'm so glad she did. (Be sure to make a reservation, as this place gets pretty packed.) It's a... More

We were just down the road where I got fed up of ever seeing a waiter so I stormed off and turned into this place on the off chance. Immediately obvious what a great atmosphere this fantastic place has. Full of genuine Italians. Loved it. Superb food. Try and find it yourself!

We were excited to see this written up in Let's Go Rome and decided to give it a try. We didn't have a reservation but we arrived 45 minutes before it opened. Upon seeing us at the door, the woman owner of the place looked us up and down disapprovingly (we were in typical tourist gear, slacks, shirt and sneakers)... More

Parents and I went on our first night in Rome, which was suggested by our hotel. First things first, book before going as it saves the hassle of the queue to get in, as it's normally packed. Waiters were great, spoke pretty decent English, and were very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and wine selection. Food is delicious, every... More

My boyfriend and I ate at this restaurant our last night in Rome because it was recommended to us my our hostel owner. The wait was long but we arrived very late. The pasta carbonara is the best I have ever had. A definite must if you eat here!
