This place is just off Piazza Barberini, one of the first restaurants in Via Sistini (right hand side from Piazza Barberini). Took a peek at the menu when the waiter was talking to other potential customers (I hate it when they try to drag me in when I am just looking at a menu). Nevertheless gave it a try as... More

Checked out this place while walking around the Piazza Barberini area and wished we might have checked out another place. We looked at the menu and was of course approached wanting us to go in (same with any other place around rome). The seating was very cramped, the decor was pretty poor and the service was not great at all...... More

We ate here twice, restaurant is very busy, first time we had really good food but the service was a bit slow. The second time we ate here the service was even slower, we were on a table that was surrounded by other tables which made it difficult for the waiters to get to us. The food was overcooked and...

The food was good and the service attentive. We stopped to look at the menu and the owner came out and spoke to us, very convincingly to try his restaurant and we were glad we did. Prices reasonable and the food was worth going back.

Recently returned from a trip to rome and we stumbled across this restaurant when out around Barberini on our last night. The waiter approached us when we were looking through the menu but he wasn't pushy - something we had got a bit sick of in throughout our time in the city! We sat in the restaurant at the back...

Food was good. Service was ok. All in all, a nice place but nothing special. Setting could be improved. A bit pricey.

We walked into this restaurant by chance, attracted by the fabulous desserts in the window. We were welcomed by a waiter who had been with the family of owners for 15 years and greeted by Mama. The fish was fresh. The waiter took time to recommend dishes and wine. You know it's a great restaurant when it serves lots of... More

As we strolled around the Piazza Barberini, we were lucky enough to discover this delightful, family restaurant. We enjoyed great food at reasonable prices. Lovely atmosphere and, of course, when you see mostly locals eating there, it has to be good. Don't be afraid to explore the side streets.

We were warmly welcomed and the staff are lovely. We ordered takeaway which didn't take long. However, the pizzas didn't have a huge amount off topping and there was about an inch of more or dry crust. Plus they got our order wrong and for one pizza instead of an expensive gourmet pizza, we got a cheap margarita. Unfortunately we... More

This place had great pizza, that crunchy crust, the meat was delicious. The survive was nice. The waiters were very helpful. We had so many questions. My pizza was delicious, my wife had beef tortellini. She said it was OK.......but she is picky. :-) ask the restaurants look the same in the area. Go check it out. I don't think... More
