We found this off of near me now and it was terrific. Good pasta, goos wine, good atmosphere. When your tired of being treated like a tourist, stop here.

Good restaurant. Good food, service and atmosphere. The price was a little high when compared to other equally good restaurants I've been to.

We got lost walking there, but once we found it, we were enthralled with specials of the day that we ordered! Homemade pasta! The stuffed calamari was unbelievable ! The flavors played with our tastebuds! You will be sorry if you miss it! Mangia!

Our driver took us here and told us we were in for a treat. He was not kidding. The food was exceptional. In fact, it was the best lunch I had on my trip to Italy.

If you are looking for a truly "Italian" eating experience then Il Bocconcino is the place to go. Excellent food from appetizer to dessert and very friendly service. It is close to the Colosseum just off the via Claudia and easy to find. We had our best meal during our visit to Rome in this small and understated restaurant.

Excellent restaurant and truly italian. A limited number of tables so go early or make a reservation. The menu is in italian and is not translated but our waiter spoke excellent English and was very helpful. Make sure to see the specials on the back chalkboard. I had steak which was cooked perfectly.
