Excellent pastas..! Nice atmosphere, very good service. Ability to drink awaiting table or before dinner. I recommend this restaurant.

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...

I've eaten here twice in a week at this little place. Very warm atmosphere and friendly. From the bar to the dining room, these people know what good service and amazing food is all about! I will be bringing my family back here for sure! BRAVO!!

Our anticipation of a delightful experience was soon destroyed by the rudeness and dismissive attitude of the Cief Server and his reluctance to explain the menu to us (the menu is only available in Italian). We restrained ourselves from walking out and ordered some plain pasta dishes as the Chief Server was so nasty and unhelpful. Overall, a most disappointing... More

The whole experience was spoilt by the lack of an English menu, the waiter was very arrogant in his reluctant rendition/translation of the menu, was hurried and very insufficient. This resulted in us being unable to properly understand the menu and misse out on probably some very interesting dishes. In order to avoid the fiasco we had to do with... More

This was one of the best meals I had in Rome. It opens a t 7 pm and when we arrived there was already a line-up to get in. If you have time, make a reservation if not be prepared to wait or if you get there for 7 pm be prepared to have only an hour for dinner as... More

I had the house special and maybe, cos I opted for home-made gnocchi, found the whole thing too be a little stodgy for my taste. My wife's chicken in tomato sauce buried in an avalanche of rocket, though recommended by the waiter was found to be very bland. Stones in the washbasin of the 'convenience' were a nice touch in...
