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

First impression of this place as we'd walked past a few times, were not great, but our hotel had recommended it. It was our last evening in Rome & round the corner from our hotel, so we decided to go. We were welcomed and sat all together, but then they let in a toothless, gormless man serenading the tables &... More

We had very nice time in this restaurant! Food, drinks and services was perfect ! The waiter was speaking English ! He was friendly and recommending the best meals for the evening! The price was really normal and if we had one more evening in Rome we would go there again!

Went here for a friends birthday, ordered overpriced wine, simple meals but they came out wrong. All our food came out and then the owner who looks like he wants to fight you, told the birthday boy "no potatoes". He didn't even get any food. The waiter then walked away and didn't care. The restuarant is grubby, the owner looks... More

we visited this restaurant on our first night in Rome during a four day visit. It appeared to be a typical roman restaurant of a rustic nature and we were welcomed by the owner. However the meal was disappointing as the fried potatoes that we had ordered were lukewarm and there was a lack of atmosphere. Would not recommend as... More

It was a big deception. We waited for a long time, only to be served wrong and cold meals. Lot of customers had the same issue when we were there. Servant seemed to be lost between tables and ordered meals. Also, pasta were not cooked enough. We almost left the restaurant but it was late and we were hungry (and... More

Just arrived late into Rome and was located right near our hotel. We walked on in and from the start we were welcomed and made feel at home. Deborah the host was exceptional and good to practice our Italian with.. In all the place had a homely feel with authentic Italian food. A must if staying near the station.

We went along for a drink and a little bite. My wife got an cold red wine, normally it's om chamber temparature. The beer was on chamber temparature. The servant didn't speek English and she wore short shorts. There was a awfull fish smell on the terasse.

Invited in by the host who, having heard how my mum's wallet had been stolen on the bus, offered us a free drink. The host also let me use the restaurant's phone to make a call. He was very sympathetic. Regarding the food, we had the set menu for 15 euros. The amatriciana pasta was nice, the meat was testy... More
