Good food is served in a comfortable environment. The outdoor space in the main square is really unique in Rome and can take place about 90 people. The inside spaces are two very welcoming hall: the entrance hall of about 30/35 people and the other room can accommodate more than 60 others.

Very nice

Very nice restaurant just in the heart of the enchanting tastevere area. Pasta was delicious and desserts was also very tasty. The service was fast and friendly even during a busy night. Try their wine!

The restaurant didn't stand out in any particular way, and had we not turned back along the same road into Trastevere we probably wouldn't have entered the restaurant. Still being Valentine's day, we were surrounded by couples and plenty of love in the air... We selected two pizzas, Norma and Salsiccia e funghi and were satisfied. It was kind of... More

Was brought there by Italian friends. The food is excellent. their special cheese and Spaghetti is special. even the '' basket'' holding the Spaghetti is made or Cheese. Ideal for vegetarians or indeed anyone. I only have one reservation - their bacon in a pasta dish was nearly 100% fat. Some pieces were 100% strips of fat, but I'm told... More

I first went here 12 years ago. I liked it. But like all Trastevere restaurants service is bad often rude and unless you're indifferent to that its not worth it for the food.

The food was amazing, everything fresh and handmade (the pasta too), and always including season vegetables. The waiter was extremely charming and helpful in his recommendations. The value-price is extremely good. I don't even have a minimum regret. Perfect evening.

We spent 10 days in Rome and this was absolutely one of the best meals we had. We did not have a reservation, but thankfully they were able to take us in. We did show up on the early side (7:30 for dinner is early in Italy!) so that probably helped. I think if you do plan on going here,... More

I will admit...we went here because of the Anthony Bourdain episode. We headed over at lunch and arrived when they opened. Get there early because even if they have seats, they may still turn people away (we saw that happen to several people). We were seated in the "upstairs" area which I think is where they put the Americans. Our... More

I don't understand some of the recent reviews on this restaurant. We went on the night of the Epifania, which is a public holiday in Italy, and enjoyed EVERY second of it. Of course you will need to book, but it's because it's popular not because it's pretentious. It's also NOT true that locals don't eat here anymore after Bourdain's... More

Of course I had to try this restaurant after seeing it on Anthony Bourdain's show in Rome. We went on a Monday night (closed), so had to go back later in the week. We had our aThanksgiving day lunch there. Food was very good. I had the cacio e pepe at several locations and this one was the best. The... More
