Great atmosphere in quite a quirky restaurant. The evening we visited the air con wasn't working well so it was extremely warm. The background music was good, the waiters efficient and friendly. Great wine! The food was fine. My pasta was a little heavy but ok. The fillet steaks were excellent value for money and well cooked. You need to... More

We stumbled across this the other night. The man asked if we had a booking and I thought he was taking the piss as we had walked past almost 30 empty restaurants. We were given a table providing we were no longer then 1 hour as it was booked. The place was packed. And for good reason! Great pasta! Great... More

Enjoyed fried vegetable starters and ham. Best spaghetti carbonara . Staff friendly. Normally fully booked. We went late and just waited less tan 30 minutes, so had a drink at the bar recommended by hotel. Desserts looked really yummy, but it was late and I was full from my 2 courses.

We were turned away one evening as the restaurant was booked, but they were friendly about it and suggested we call on another day. After calling ahead and getting a spot on our last night in Rome, we were treated to a delicious meal. Nice variety of dishes, fresh ingredients, and bold flavors. I had pasta alla gricia as a...

Our hotel recommended this place to us and it was amazing! The place is family owned and they gave some of the best services we've ever had. I had a fresh made noodle with carbonara and it was the best pasta dish I've ever had. We went two nights in a row because we loved it so much. I recommend... More

Excellent Italian restaurant, with a very nice and romantic ambient. The food is great (especially those prepared with truffles) and the wines offered usually match the food. Hope to go there many times yet.

My 2nd time in a few years at the restaurant and enjoyed the service and the food. Our group of 10 enjoyed appetizers, wine, and the house special, the Carbonara. A few people had other main entree items and enjoyed them as well. Our waiter was very friendly and never wrote down one item that we ordered. He got it... More

Yes, the menus are only in Italian but unlike the other reviewer, we did find a very friendly English speaking waiter. He was super efficient. Reservations are a must especially if you want to eat late.

Recommended by a local we had two pasta dishes both of which were fine. Porcini very fine. Not sure about prices as our friend paid! We were seated in the back room which has about 8 tables and is quite noisey when packed with about 50 diners all having a good time. Charming place, grafitti encouraged! and pleasant bar area...
