Last night was to be our second dinner at this restaurant - the food was really good the previous time. This time around, we waited about 10 minutes for the waiter and ordered water to start off with. Then - nothing happened for a long time, while the waiter served another table. Eventually, he returned and wanted to take our... More

I went here several times while in Rome and it's one of my favorites! The neighbourhood is really charming and this restaurant fits in just right. We almost tried everything on the menu. Different kind of starters, pasta, pizza, risotto, fish- and meat dishes and their dolce. We both loved it al! The service was very friendly. But I think... More

We were lead here by the good reviews and a recommendation for the area. We were not disappointed. The waiter did his best to explain everything to us and to make recommendations according to our wishes. When a shower suddenly came pouring down, they immediately came to save our dinner. Props for the great effort! :) Even though we had... More

My friends and I stopped by this restaurant after spending a few days in Rome. The food we had was excellent and the price was much more reasonable than a few other meals we had in a few touristy areas. The house wine was very good and the servers were attentive. It was one of the best meals we had... More

My husband I sat on the outside patio and had a nice meal here on our first night in Rome. We shared a salad, pizza and pasta and it was good. Nothing out of this world but the price was right and service was good so we were happy.

We had lunch on a cold April day when those sitting outside were shivering. We asked for a table inside and, even though there were several available in the front, we were shown to the one near the rest room. Complaining did not good as the front ones were "riservati" (we didn't see anyone seated in them in the 90... More

We had dinner two times in this restaurant. The first evening both of us had very good Spaghetti but made the mistake to eat the bread which was served directly to us (be aware: 1,50€ per person!!!). The second evening we rejected the bread which meant that in the end no pizza was served to us because "the oven was... More

Stopped for lunch, went on the reviews of tripadvisor. Ordered the fried artichoke was good but different. The rest of our lunch and wine were excellent. Sat outside enjoyed the street atmosphere. Met some fellow colliseum tourists and they joined us. No trouble adding additional chairs.

I went to dinner here with a few friends. I had a great pasta dish, tortellini with pancetta, creme and there were supposed to be peas but they were unfortunately forgotten. It was amazing! Covered in parmsean, perfection. For dessert we shared an an amazing tiramisu. The wine was good and inexpensive. I would definitely come back here.

We stumbeld on this restaurant by coincidence - and sudden raindrops - and found a gem. Like other reviewers before, we chose pizza, and what a treat! At an incredible low price. We also enjoyed sone typical vegetables such as cicoria and a delicious raw ham bruschetta. Dessert looked wonderful, but we couldn't handle it anymore.
