Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we did try it on our last night in Rome. The food and service was better than some places we found on our own, but not a good as another restaurant the hotel recommended. I would go here rather than some of the restaurants that have a person on the street trying to talk... More

Handy for our hotel and it was raining hard so we popped in here. Warm welcome from staff, beers provided quickly as was a menu. Garlic bread pizza to start and it was hot and very garlicky (just how we like it). I had a pizza with spicy sausage and it was just fine. Nothing flash here, just good service... More

Visited as a result of reading other reviews. The food was good with the salt beef highly recommended. The service was attentive and staff very friendly but not overbearing. Value for money was reasonable at about €50 for two people. Would I recommend it to others - yes I would. Would I go again myself - yes I believe I... More

I've been here with friends for dinner. Staff is very welcoming and well informed about dishes. I suggest to ask the blonde waitress for the best dish of the day. She is an asset. Great pasta (ask for Cacio e Pepe) and delicious cake "sbriciolata" made of mousseline cream, crusty puff pastry and chocolate. I'm Italian and I live in... More

Local to our hotel, this meal was fantastic! Best we had during our stay. Salted beef was amazing (I wish I could eat it now), and best carbonara we had. For 2 people a few starters and two pasta courses, with bottle of wine and water was €50 with service charge. Excellent value if you ask me.

Our hotel recommended trying this restaurant. It serves fish, meat, pizza, and pasta. The food was reasonable and fairly priced. By the time we finished our food to getting dessert took 20 min. After getting our bill, I waited for 20 min before our server returned and told me to go up front to pay with credit card. We were... More

Fish tartar and pasta (we had 2 different types) were great. Octopus salad as well. Tiramisu was not. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The second time we went our order was taken by a lady who looked like the owner of the place. We had some disagreements with her at first but all was fine at the end.
