We came here on the recommendation of a friend who is from Italy - he said it is his first choice restaurant in Rome (we made a reservation online easily). We had the house white wine which was good, the Mozzarella, Jewish Artichoke, Amatriciana, Carbonara, and Cacio e Pepe. We loved everything - not as much the Cacio e Pepe... More

A truly Trastevere icon, located in the heart of the bar and restaurant area just off P. Trulissa, but with a great classic interior and very pleasant rear patio for quieter, more romantic setting than you'd get at any of the front sidewalk restaurant tables. We ate there twice on a recent stay in Trastevere, and took our son-in-law, daughter... More

Thank you for your beautiful words. Satisfy our customer by offering the traditional family's kitchen, (My grandfather opened the restaurant in 1935), is a pride and the pleasure for us. Stefania More

I'm an Italian guy but i'm writing in english, so everyone can understand why it is not a good place to go, first of all the place is too expensive in respect to all the other resturants, 18 Euro for a plate of Carbonara or Matriciana is too much, second the service was not good at all, and third the...

We took my father here for his 50th birthday party and to this day it was one of the best meals I have ever eaten in my entire life. In fact, the food was so good it reminded my father of his mother's cooking and he became very emotional at the table. Anyway, if you're looking for excellent food paired... More

the service was slow, and I sites on speaking Italian, even though we had told them we don't speak Italian. the seafood appetizers were too acidic, as if I drank a glass of vinager. the roast lamb was over cooked and full of fat. and the clam spaghetti was full of broken shell pieces. and finally the oxtail was hard...

Great place for a very typical roman specialties dinner. It might be a bit overpriced for a pasta dish but quantities and quality made us forget about it. Service is a bit random

I was there for a dinner with colleagues as organized by the inviting company. The place is easy to reach as soon as you enter the Trastevere area and it is perfectly the roman osteria type that you wish to visit. Food is excellent with typical roman regional cuisine but it is indeed too expensive and the atmosphere is ruined... More

I'm surprised anyone gives this place a negative review. The prices are great and the food is better than you expect for the prices. What's not to like? It is a bit hard to find and I think somehow we found the inn part first but they sent us to the back/front? to the restaurant part. Anyway, the servers all... More
