First of all, I need to tell, we didn't even try the food in this "restaurant". When we arrived to the half empty place, one of the waitresses hosted us to a teeny tiny table, inconveniently close to another two men. My husband isn't the smallest man in the world, he didn't fit to the small table. We asked the... More

Nothing i can recommend, taste less and for cooked food. Low price but not low enough for that food. We tried the tourist menu in hop of geting a "Italian all a round taste experience", so disappointed. The wine and the draft beer was water damaged, soft drink from can was the only normal taste.

This place was very busy every time we walked by, so we decided to give it a try. Three main courses (all very tasty) a bottle of vino and two deserts for $36 euro seemed to me to be very reasonable and well worth it. There was no rush to have us leave early and everyone around us seemed to... More

In a city where there is so much great food, do not waste a meal here even if you are on a budget and the prices tempt you. It is just not worth it. I tried the carbonara and the carciofi (artichoke) alla Romana and I left most uneaten. The place does not have the cozy atmosphere Trastevere is known... More

Was walking around Trastevere looking for a place to eat, kind of just perusing through menu after menu, seeing which place looked best for the price. This restaurant was amazing. I have the Carlo Menta app which was a seafood plate, homemade pasta for the first course, a veal dish for the 2nd, and tiramisu for dessert. Throw in a... More

Had a lite lunch Sat and went back tonite. Had 2 artichokes each, shared plate of baked veggies, mussels in sauce and gnocchi with seafood, half liter wine, 2 beers, 2 Limoncellos and a shared tartufo all for 47 euro! Plus everything was good. Highly recommend.

While staying in Rome we walked by this restaurant many times and it was always very busy so never checked out the menu which is located outside until finally we did. To our amazement we couldn't believe our eyes! Where can you get a lasagna for dinner for 5 euros?!? No brainer... If it was awful it wouldn't be a... More

Were here with my bf. Staff is rude and cheating - they include service, menu in italian language and not all people can see it. Service was 50% of order. Waitress is rude and other staff also. Avoid this place, they are cheaters and scandal-makers. We were in shock. Why we must pay for service? If service is awful and... More

There are many better choices around Trastevere. This place is appalling and doesn't deserve the volume of people it gets, a result of its advantageous position. Service was at best indifferent and at times just rude. The 'order-taker' man who was on duty was one of the worst table waiters we've ever experienced. He was consistently rude to every table...

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local whilst visiting the Vatican. It is slightly out of Rome and you need to catch a bus no 23 but you will need to ask directions when you get there but the area is delightful. They had a 13 euro menu for 3 courses and the food is delicious. We had... More
