Whilst In Rome for 4 days we we're sick of the main plazas fighting for your custom to serve below average food. And then just off the main drag this place. Refreshing menu,good staff and no hassle. Perfect

We arrived very early for dinner, and they accommodated us with charm and grace. The menu was interesting and varied, with great options in all courses, and many specials. The service was helpful and pleasant, and the food beautifully presented with a delicate simplicity of flavours to match. A carpaccio of raw fish was wafer thin and dressed so that... More

After a couple of years we came back to this neighborhood restaurant and we were still very happy with what we ate. The beef carpaccio is excellent, if a bit salty, and the pasta cacio e pepe very tasy. Service is also a plus with very friendly staff.

I visited this place several times ove the last couple of years. At the beginnig I was skeptical about the possibility of finding such a restaurant in such a place... too much off the beaten track... but there it is... excellent.They prepare different dishes from teh traditional Roman Osteria and with great succes.

We enjoyed everything we had here, it was all delicious and very elegantly presented. Recommend especially the mixed starter based on meat, spinach and mayo, the anchovy tagliolini, the pineapple tiramisu and the dessert with salted chocolate and ginger icecream. The place is clean and modern and the service friendly and attentive. And they seem to have to more places... More

Just a half-block away from Piazza Navona, I stumbled on this little gem. Casual dining with a great menu, I was able to sit outside and enjoy the hub-bub without feeling overwhelmed by tourists.

It's worth making the effort to find this place, not that it's hard to find. It is very close to Piazza Navona but away from all the "traditional" trattorie, ristoranti, and pizzeria. It's modern inside and the food has a slightly modern twist but is still very Italian. Carbonara con carciofi was amazing. Reasonably priced, and an added bonus... the... More

This restaurant was amazing! My family and I went here after being caught in a few tourist traps previously in Venice and Rome. It was such a relief to go somewhere where we could really enjoy the food. We started out with entrees. The zucchini flowers were incredible! As main meals we had the gnocchi oxtail and veal meatballs. It... More

We stayed in the area and ate here twice. It was a nice change from the usual downtown piazza resto with sweepers in the front, a nice view, and terrible food. We had a good meal each time. Try the pasta prepared in the cheese wheel or the pasta with anchovies. Serving sizes are good.
