We are here on our last night in Rome, by chance, and wish we had found it sooner. Lots of locals seem to dine here, which is always a good sign. Very pleasant waiter, more than ok to make a special (not on the menu) pizza, very efficient service, and the final bill was a very pleasant surprise. Don't be... More

Extremely disappointing last dinner in Rome. My partner and I had high hopes as the restaurant seemed to be highly rated. To start we had two different types of Bruschetta both were horrible, worst we have had in Rome, in fact anywhere we have been in Italy. Then my partner had a pizza toppings were a little on the low... More

If you are looking for authentic roman food, this is the place!! Excellent "bucatini all'amatriciana" and lots of other traditional dishes. the manager is very nice and always came to check how my girlfriend and I were doing. At the end we barely finished what we ordered (2 appetizers and 2 pasta dishes), and including 2 pints of beers and... More

We have been visiting this place whenever we are in Rome. This time our visit was not too pleasant. We ordered the bucatini alla'matricciana and the portion size has greatly diminished as has the service. It also seems as if the seat the the tourist separately from the locals, which is also a "new thing". The taste of the dish... More

the food was terrible!! I had the bacon and asparatus pasta while my friend got the gnocchi with clam and green broccoli. The gnocchi was like a flour ball and green broccoli was some vegetable i dont know. The white sauce of my pasta was really bad. Every bite was a challenge. The service was really good though, they were... More

Went at 9pm on a Wednesday and there was over an hour wait. Went back on Thursday at 7:30pm and were seated right away. They let us know they would need the table by 9 and delivered our meal without feeling rushed. Pretty good food for our second dinner in Rome and priced right. Wait staff was excellent, no complaints.... More

We went to go eat here at around 9pm on a Wednesday evening and it was a little empty, so we walked around for a while to see if anything else in the area seemed more happening. We ended up returning here to find it packed, around 9:40. Even without a reservation we were seated quickly. Great ambiance, server was... More

Great classic Roman service and food. Reasonably priced. Tucked away in a quiet place. Not far from the colosseum.

We had a good meal here on a Tuesday evening. We arrived at 7.30 and were seated immediately. The food was reasonably slow to arrive, but it was very nice so we didn't mind the wait. I ordered the sausage and sage penne which turned out to be huge and really delicious. We also had some local wine which was... More
