Not bad

Cute little place. My husband liked the carbonara and the minestrone I had tasted like a vegetable stew-- I enjoyed it immensely!

This was a great place to eat. The owner was very pleasant and took great care of us. The service was great and the food was some of the best during our 2 weeks in Italy.

They served us half cooked pasta and a cold lasagna, not a good start. I complained about the lasagna and reminded them after about 10 minutes that I wanted to have my food - after another 10 minutes I got it back all soggy and tasteless after way too long in the microwave. By then everyone else had finished. The... More

We went there last weekend and we had a very romantic dinner. Food is excellent and for very reasonable prices you can experience topical local plates. Best trippa alla Romans in town and good wine too. Excellent service, definitely we recommend to stop there!

We had such excellent food in the restaurant. For a small team of people the service was better than at some other restaurants we hit. We especially enjoyed the oxtail and the spaghetti, and the waiter's recommendations were delicious. The atmosphere is very friendly and casual, and if you happen to ask the waiter for the "best gelato or ice... More

The place is simple and nicely decorated, the owner and his friends were being Italian and chatting about everything. Food: Pasta and crab were absolutely delicious. This place helped me to get into Italian mode: unhurried, enjoying life and myself. Great place. Go there and relax

I often wonder what people's expectations are when I read bad reviews. We called in here whilst waiting for our train to the airport and it was a fab meal. Service was good, rigatoni carbonara and fettuccine bolognese were amazing, one of the best meals we'd had in our 5 night stay. Granted it was lunchtime and maybe service is... More

YIKES. if you sort by the one(1) score and read the comments you will find they are true. Avoid this place as it will tarnish your Rome experience.

Value budget affordable. I have dined at this restaurant with a pasta carbonara and a trippa alla romana and after a long day of walking and visiting in Rome I can say that the portions were plentiful and of good quality.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
