Unfortunately, despite being a regular traveler to Italy, I made a rookie mistake and did not review TA before eating at this restaurant. A big mistake. With only 2 days in Rome at the and of a wonderful 3 weeks in Italia, I felt cheated by the meal I suffered through at this place. It's currently rated 2,614 out of... More

I found out about this restaurant 3 years ago from Budget Travel via an article titled Eat like a local Roman. Google it. Even a local recommended this place again this year and we decided to try it again. We ordered the cheese plate, house red wine, and each ordered a pasta. We were very happy with our choices and...

Rick is usually on the money but wow was he off with recommending this one. There are a bunch of restaurants in the area and I would recommend staying far from this one unless you enjoy terrible service, a hot mosquito infested alley lined with motorcycles and decorated with hanging laundry. The house red wine tastes similar to warm fruit... More

My colleagues and I were recommended this restaurant by another Italian colleague whilst on business. The food was very good and portions more than ample. The pasta with mussels and clams was excellent. Service at times was a little on the slow side but I think eating in Italy should be savoured! The restaurant is situated in an area of... More

We had to book a couple of days before on my birthday trip to Rome. This was our hotel's recommendation. A little trixy to find in Trastevere but so worth it. Real Italian/Roman cooking at its best. Pasta to start with a side of anchovies and then Rabbit in garlic. Ruwan guided us as to what was best pick. I'll... More

I made reservations at this place based on Rick Steve's rating in his guide book. This was a fantastic restaurant. After eating in/around Rome for two weeks I had a sense of food quality and price. This restaurant really stood out in quality of food, service and price. The atmosphere was cozy and enjoyable. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The location is fantastic. We were looking at the magnificent Pantheon while drinking a glass of house wine. Waiters spoke English and were very friendly and helpful. Prices were as expected in Rome in such a touristic spot. We spent about 12 euro per person for dinner. We loved the spot in the square. It was perfect!

Like other reviewers, we had to convince them that we really wanted a table. The owner waved us in and then we sat down for a great meal and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. I'd give it a better rating than Rick Steves provides in his guide. The marinated anchovies, and cheese plate with honey were very good starters. The rabbit was... More

Having been recommended this restaurant by a friend, we arrived for our 7.30pm reservation, seven minutes early. We were curtly told by the staff to come back in ten minutes. My father has trouble walking and standing so I asked whether he could just sit down on one of the many chairs outside whilst we waited. The answer was no.... More
