I've been in town for 4 days, this is the best meal I've had since my arrival .The appetizers were substantial and delicious . "The risotto with gorganzola was the best I've ever had." House wine was smooth and Flavorful. The staff is one entire family who speak English and are very courteous and cordial. If you're in Rome near... More

Was disappointed that Trevi Fountain was under restoration when we arrived, so decided to have a nice lunch to contemplate our disappointment! Food was amazing & service great! Had the seafood pasta..and got to say wow wow wow..they do charge a 10% surcharge though. Would definitely recommend this place!!

Our friends recommended that we try this restaurant while in Rome. They (being very italian and very good chefs) ate here every day while they were in Rome, so we couldn't NOT go! We were not disappointed. Luca and his Mom were the best hosts ever. Delicious food - flavorful, yummy, home cooked amazingness. My risotto with sausage and mushrooms... More

We came to this Resturent last night mainly based on advices from people in the trip advisor. I must say that it is the best Italian food I've ever had in my life. We ordered pizza and spaghetti and both were equally good. During our 7 days visit to Rome, we have been to at least 12 different restaurants. However,... More

We were looking for a nice place to have dinner and chose Piccolo Buco which is in a great location, near Trevi fountain. Service was ok, the owner came to get our order, didn't write it down so after a while came to confirm, but that was ok. We had a bruschetta as starter and although it tasted great, it... More

My wife and I have been to this fantastic little restaurant on our last day in Rome. We only wish would have found this place sooner. Conveniently located just a few steps from Trevi Fountain we experienced friendly and charming service, delicious food and reasonable prices all in one package.

My husband and I wanted to visit this restaurant when in Rome after reading about it on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. It is a family- owned restaurant and we were looked after by the owner's son, Luca, on the night we visited. He was a friendly happy man with great pride in his family's business. We sat outside and... More

We went for dinner following the reviews in Tripadvisor. The food was just ok, not bad, but the pasta was a little bit overcooked and not "al dente", which is surprising in Italy. My impression is that this is a cheap restaurant targeting tourists, so go somewhere else if you are looking for good quality italian food.
