Last day in Italy after 3 weeks and craving our first Spaghetti Bolognese we stumbled across this great restaurant. Modest pricing, great food and great service. Try the Bruchetta Gorgonzola as well as the Spaghetti Bolognese both were awesome.

Do yourself a favour and visit this restaurant. Absolutely gorgeous food. The ravioli with four cheese sauce is to die for. Pizzas are very tasty. Good prices and heaps of gelato places to choose from once finished. 100m from Trevi fountain.

Honestly, this might be the best food I've had in Rome. The pasta is AMAZING. I can't even explain how delicious the sauce was. This place is so good that my boyfriend and I have gone twice already in three days. Luca, the server and owner's son, is charming and funny and will make your visit entertaining. If you're near...

Best food near the Trevi Fountain or maybe Rome entirely. The mushroom bruschetta was incredible. I even had it for dessert. The lasagna was great and I hate lasagna. The steak with mushrooms almost had me licking the plate. There were many locals there (including children) and Luca the son's owner will make you feel like family. BUT GET A... More

This was worst place we've eaten at so far during our stay in Rome. The pasta "sauce" is basically oil with no flavouring. The pizzas are bland with either no tomato or no cheese! The bread was stale and the service was cold. The portions are small and very expensive for whay they are. The salmon fish was the only... More

It was a case of one out one in all the time we where there. What a gem of a small restaurant, food excellent ,drink reasonable,we... More

Not only was the food delicious, but we had the best restaurant service of our trip. The staff was very friendly and helpful and went above and beyond our other Rome restaurant experiences. The prices were a great value and the house red wine was tasty! And I would definitely recommend the tiramisu.

After you find that all the stories about the Trevi fountain are indeed true and it's covered in scaffolding, then it's time to reward yourself for the walk by visiting this little gem nearby. Don't bring deterred by the size of the restaurant...it's great food with excellent staff...I will certainly be returning soon

Step inside the pokey little restaurant away from the hustle of the street leading to trevi fountain and be treated like family, beautiful wood fired pizzas with the freshest ingredients on top, tasty lasagna and really nice coffee. Quick and reasonably priced.
