Quiet and very friendly

We decided to come because of the good reviews and it was so close to our hotel. We weren't disappointed! Delicious meal and very friendly service. I had the veal which was great. Would also recommend the mixed starter plate. Overall a great value meal well worth a visit.

Words can't do justice to the experience. Very unassuming from the outside, inside is an Aladdin's cave of authentic, fresh, simple Italian cuisine. Thank you to Trip Advisor for guiding us here - without a doubt one of the highlights of our trip to Rome

Not far from Colloseum, in a small and winding alley, this restaurant is hidden. When you have foubd it you can be served a delicius pasta, best lasagna we got during our stay in Rome. And the Tiramisou and Creme brulee were absolutely top of the line.

My partner and I went here in the evening. It was okay but nothing to write home about. The website stated it opened at 6 but when we got there it said 7. We waited because it was close to our hotel and had good reviews. To start we shared the antipasti sharing platter for €18- it was definitely over... More

Off the beaten track, quiet, friendly and superb food. The price of the food and drink is unbelievably reasonable considering it's location and splendid service - it was difficult not to go back the following night! Outstanding. Best carbonara of my life!

It doesn't look like much from the outside but this place is amazing! The food is so good and the service is great. We went on a recommendation from our hotel concierge stating that "it's awesome" and he was not wrong. I had their Onion and Gorgonzola Lasagne and my husband had the Carbonara and they were both delicious. Try... More

Admittedly I'm no connoisseur to of Italian food, but this was the nicest I've ever had. Try the crispy fried pizza starter.

We had a carbonara pasta, food tasted great. It's a very small cute place to eat. Price was also reasonable, eur50 between 3 people which only included a main dish.

The staff were a little half hearted at first and took a while to "find" us a table (there were several visible, and it was after 9:30pm so I am sure they did not have any more bookings), but after we ordered they seemed to warm up a bit, even joking with us. The pasta was not a stand out... More

I have been here about five times now and it never disappoints. Family run, very charming, on a quite, tricky to find street. Their pasta speciality of the house is made with zucchini flowers and although it didn't sound that great to me, it was divine. They also could not be nicer there. Very welcoming to Americans.

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
