My wife and I visited this restaurant on our second night in Rome. We went there guided by all the good reviews on Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. We had an excellent meal down in this very nice cellar restaurant with a very friendly atmosphere. We had bruschetta for antipasto, spaghetti for primo, and fish dishes for secondo: sea... More

We ate spagetti matriciana, it was really nice. Steak was the main dish, it was delicous but it is not like you're eating italian food, you can find that kind of a steak anywhere in the world. Reservation needed, it was full. They begin to serve food at 7:00 pm

Making a reservation is imperative. This underground treasure with exposed brick arches, fresh produce, seafood, and meat prepared simply and beautifully. We started with seafood crudo, just from the ocean fresh prawns, shrimp, langoustine, oyster, fish. Clean, pure, sweet, briney and delicious. For our primo piatti we enjoyed my favorite Roman pasta dish, cacio e pepe with the added beauty... More

First, MAKE RESERVATIONS! One of the best meals ever! We made reservations and I am glad that we did because several people were turned away without reservations. A lovely underground restaurant, family owned & operated, with pictures of Marilyn Monroe everywhere. (The uncle is an artist and spices up pictures of Marilyn). The food is the best! The service is... More

Be sure to call ahead for reservations here. Beautiful underground space with exposed bricks contrasted by crystal chandeliers. The staff is friendly and welcoming. House wines are offered by the liter, half liter or glass. We ordered only pasta dishes the night we went, without judgment from the wait staff. Unlike many dishes with clams, there was a delightful balance... More

Absolutely great! Easily the best meal we had in Rome. Very cool interior but the food is the star. Great service as well.

Delicious food and great service! This was our third day in Rome and this was the best meal yet. The food was fresh and nicely presented. The price was reasonable given the value received. The ricotta and spinach ravioli in butter and sage sauce was excellent! The profiteroles were also very good.

I rarely write bad reviews and this certainly is not one of them. We were very excited to eat here based on all of the terrific reviews and the fact that it was featured on Rick Steves show. First of all I will say that we are more home Italian cooking fans than fancy restaurant fans. Taking money out of... More
