We had lunch in this lovely restaurant after reading an online review. It really was a breath of fresh air from some of the dodgy Rome tourist trap restaurants. Tasty, simple food. Restaurant is very busy with lots of locals so service is a bit rushed but that is the nature of the restaurant. Superb lunch!

I read a small article in a 2010 Budget Travel magazine and swore I would stop here to eat if I ever got to Rome. Well, fate would have you that our apartment was not that far and not only did I get here once, but twice! It was that delicious!!! I even saw the owner, and stopped her to... More

We had dinner here last week and it was great! Very small place, very authentic you feel like a local. It is in the Monti area, just a few minutes from the city centre but you fell like you are miles away. Great wine and pasta and great dollar value.

This little gem was situated on an unassuming street not too far from the Coliseum. It was a nice unassuming little restaurant with a quaint charm. The menu is simple and well-priced. The food was delicious. It was a nice break from those cookiecutter restaurants with the hosts always trying to lure you in. Highly recommended!

Great place for an informal but delicious lunch. Carbonara was fantastic! Reasonably priced and very good food! The service was fine- the waitress spoke no English but we succeeded in ordering by pointing to the menu items we wanted. Menu was in English. House wine was good and inexpensive.

It is fast, budget friendly and delicious! It is close to Colleseo in a small street. Beef and wine was really good. Try it for sure

Saw an article in budget traveler about how good this place was. They were out of everything, the food was marginal and the service very slow. The cost was reasonable but overall not worth going out of my way to eat here.

Based on the Frommer's guide we went searching for this restaurant but nearly gave up. I am glad we did not as it was a fantastic meal. We arrived around 9 and had to wait for a table but we did not mind as the food and service were fantastic. Amazing value too! I had the oxtail and would highly... More

After reading all the good reviews and having this restaurant recommended by a friend, I was extremely disappointed with various aspects of our meal here. I live in Rome and have eaten in numerous restaurants, nearly all of which offer more 'typical' Roman food, better service and a more select menu than this place. The restaurant was full of tourists... More
