We found this restaurant through trip advisor and went to check it out. It looks lovely and it's hidden away down a side street so it's quiet and less touristy. The staff are lovely; very welcoming and provide recommendations based on their experience. I had the beetroot and gorgonzola risotto to start followed by the steak with green pepper corns.... More

We tried to go to this restaurant earlier in our trip, however it was the end of August and they were closed. September 1st rolled around and they were open. (Holiday time) The location is a little hard to find - down a back alley but it was very close to our hotel. This is truly a family run restaurant... More

Another lovely find, the food was amazing, the staff were super friendly and nothing was too much bother. I had the risotto which was incredible and my husband the lasagne, which he thoroughly enjoyed. The half carafe of prosecco for 10 euros was a great deal and the salad lovely and fresh, all in all a great meal and well... More

It is a little difficult to find, but well worth it. I came with my husband and two of our friends and we had a wonderful meal. Started with antipasto and then we shared 4 of the pasta dishes. All were wonderful, fresh and perfectly cooked. Service was friendly but not overbearing. A definite gem in the area that should... More

What can I say! This is a hidden gem off Via Del Quirinale and Via Nazionale. Tucked away between the buildings this charming family restaurant awaits. Southern Italy inspired cooking by a family like no other. The steaks, fish and pasta are excellent. Every plate and antipasti executed to perfection. The hosts are exquisite and will make you feel like... More

We had a couple of tasty pasta dishes (the carbonara is very nice, though spicy), a fileto di manzo with grilled vegetables as side dish to share, house's white wine, water, and 2 coffees. All for arround 60 eur. The staff is helpful and friendly, and the place, away from the crowds, is very nice.

Super valorizado. A relação custo benefício não é boa. A comida é cara e não tem nada de especial. E não aceita cartão de crédito. Over graded. The relation prize benefits it's not good. The food is expensive but not soecial. And does not accept credit card.

We popped in one Wednesday evening and like the reviews said it was a little difficult to find with the side street and the building work going on but only temporary I guess. The staff (the family) were so friendly and looked after us. We had antipasta to start and a carbonara and the zucchini pasta,both nice. The family dog... More

This is what we hoped for when we dreamed of eating in Italy. A small, quiet, family-run restaurant where everything, and I mean everything, is expertly prepared with lovingly, and seriously, procured ingredients. We ate here three times this week, and we feel like part of the family. Everyone gets the special pasta with fried zucchini flowers, and so should... More
