My wife and me choose this restaurant for a lovely evening and good food. My wife ordered a vegetarian pizza. I ordered Carpaccio and baby octopus. First of all, ambiance of restaurant is okay. but the food bad... They brought Breasola instead of Carpaccio (I think that that is it is the easy & cheap way for them). But the... More

We had a nice moment in this charmful restaurant with a very welcoming and kind waiter (should have asked his name, short haired, you rarely such nice service) The prices are moderate and the food is tasty. I recommend

We stopped in this charming sidewalk place after a tiring day of sightseeing and it was great. The waiter (I wish I knew his name) was funny and attentive. The food was great. The atmosphere was perfect Rome. We ended up staying several hours and going through a fair amount of red wine while watching the tourists and locals. Great... More

Went there today randomly. Good location in a quiet side street near Piazza Navonna. However the food was below average - starter ok but not good pasta .

Six of us actually sought this place because of a recommendation in a guide book. We found it 7:00 pm. Two waiters finally came outside when we began to seat ourselves. The place was empty and they acted like we were disturbing their meal. After the drink orders were placed, we waited a good 5 minutes - while watching one... More

It was all so bad (the service and the food) that we had to get away as quickly as possible. Home made pasta was a disgrace. I am half Italian and I have been to Italy almost every year for 30 years. We will not be going near this place again.

This is a tough place to find. It's located on a very, VERY small street (did I mention it's also a thin street?) and for as much pedestrian and vehicular traffic as it gets, not a major road. So give yourself some time to search for it, especially if you're unfamiliar with Rome street layouts. That being said, what a... More

We should have read Tripadvisor before spending too much time locating this place which received great reviews in Frommers. Service although not bad was very cold. Not friendly at all nor helpful. Food was fair. Calamari salad bland, gnocchi was dense and not flavorful dish with clams and arugula, ravioli and grilled squid good. Pasta with cheese and pepper very... More

The food is pretty good here. Won't knock you off of your feet but it's solid. Nice corner tucked away from the Roman masses and tourist traps. I had a group of 5 and we all had good meals.

We were staying around the corner in an apartment and stumbled upon this place. Since it wasn't full of tourists, we decided to try it and were pleased. The pesto gnocchi and spinach ravioli were amazing and the pasta was so fresh. The house white wine was very good. Although it's much less expensive than nearby Piazza Navona options, it... More
