Went here based solely on the good Tripadvisor ratings. Well worth it - cheaper than some city centre restaurants, but with a small and welcoming atmosphere. The food was superb and was accompanied by some very Italian shouting from the kitchen! Definitely one of the best restaurants we found in the centre of Rome.

We were recommended this restaurant by family members and when we first got there we were surprised by how small and unassuming it was - but took this to be a good sign (I.e. it was no tourist trap). Be prepared for an intimate, local experience but the food does not disappoint. The owner chatted to regulars and the staff... More

We were made to feel so welcome the first time, we went back on two more occasions. The food was excellent on all occasions. We felt like one of the family.

Brought a group of about 25 people - almost filled the restaurant. The service was fantastic - the food was amazing and at a great price. We had lots of wine/beer (all different kinds) A hidden gem. Do not be discouraged by revies that are less than excellent or very good because this place was fantastic. My group felt this... More

The entry is really hard to find and the place is quite small but it is a lovely restaurant. The food is awesome: with my friends, we took different antipasti, pasta and meat and they were all really good. Moreover, we ordered a beer and the waitress proposed some artisanal one which was very tasty. We didn't test the wine... More

We went there for lunch. My companion had a tasty, and gorgeous black squid ink risotto. It was so beautiful, we just wanted to look it, but when we took a bite, it got devoured very fast. I had a curried sea food linguine, which was equally beautiful to look at, and for a curry lover, a fabulous meal. The... More

A pearl in the centre of Rome. Very near the Navona Square, the place was full of locals, not one tourist. The menu is quite exquisite, with some unusual options of an eastern touch. The place is quite small, so reservations are recommendable. We had a paccheri and a amazing risotto with nero de sepia for first dishes, followed by... More

I used Frommer's, Trip Advisor and Fodor's for all our restaurant planning and this place was only recommended by a local, figures! The owner was very kind and patient with s as we ordered and offered a lot of off the menu options based on our preferences. The food was by far the best we had in all of Italy... More

We felt welcome the minute we walked in. The ristorante is an interesting mix of italian and mediteranean menu items. Our appetizers were very good, the house red wine was just fine, and the pasta was excellent. I had the carbonara and it was great, as was my wife's greci. I had the chocolate cake and it was really good.... More

The service was good, and we felt welcome. I ordered the risotto con calamari, and my boyfriend the ravioli. The presentation was quite boring, but the taste divine! It ended up beeing a bit more expensive than we had thought. We didn't see the prices for bread and drinks on the menu and also we didn't see the bill, so... More
