I got to Rome in the evening and headed out solo to find some food. This was highly reviewed on yelp so I ventured over. This is a fun, lovely atmosphere with really good reasonably priced food. I went alone and the waiters were very friendly / hungout with me, but I would probably would go with a friend next... More

6 friends ate here tonight, service was impeccable, food was amazing with big portions, value for money, but book a table in advance as very busy. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

If you want fine dining this isn't for you. If you want authentic Italian food at a reasonable price in a friendly environment then this definitely is for you! I got the set menu which was a buffet style anti pasti, a choice of the 2 house special flambe pastas, ox tail and tripe, a desert, coffee and a small... More

I ate here as, on a Thursday night, it was absolutely packed with people speaking Italian - how could that go wrong? After a week in Rome, it appears it was full as this was far and away the cheapest I had (0.5L of wine for 3.50 was unrivaled, though the quality of that wine was appropriate for that price)....

We only found this place when trawling the area around the park Victor Emmanuele looking for a simple lunch. We are extremely glad we did! DO NOT BE PUT OFF BY WHAT THIS PLACE LOOKS LIKE ON THE OUTSIDE! We were seated very quickly by a very nice waiter. The second we got down the stairs we knew we'd found... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our host at our place is stay, and we were delighted by the quality of food, service and price. Be warned, it gets busy here so book ahead. It seemed very popular with locals, and the second night we dined there, they turned away many at the door. First of all, drinks - house... More

SouthEast of the Forum about a 15 minute comfortable walk the basement level restaurant is filled with locals so reserve or arrive "early" (before 7:00pm). The portions are generous so consider sharing and limit the number of selections. House wine is cheaper than Coke (3.5 euro for 1/2 litre). The staff are very limited in their English but patient with... More

Suggest you only order 1 of the 2 cheese type flamed pastas.. That's plenty and for 9.50 euro it's perfect.. Lots of people for a Monday so reserve!

This place served hands down THE best pasta we had in Rome!! Would love to fly over just to eat there again!! Prices are excellent also, you can end up paying the same for heated up frozen meals in a lot of restaurants in Rome, but this place serves REAL Italian food and it tastes wonderful! The prices are excellent... More
