We went here on recommendation from tripadvisor and were not disappointed! It is very close to the Trevi Fountain and on a small street with souvenir shops and the food and atmosphere was brilliant.

In an area overloaded with tourist traps this family restaurant was delicious and very reasonable. The teens enjoyed it so much we returned a second time in three nights!

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.
