Went here because my map of Rome said it was one of the best spaghetti carbonnara's in the city. Were very excited to try it as it seemed this was what everyone was ordering around us. The meal ended up being quite average. I'm excited to find some better pasta while I'm here. I liked the plain and authentic interior,... More

He reviews on this place are bang on. As an English speaker expect to get treated like total crap, but I often find that a good sign for food quality and they delivered. Also dirt cheap so the bad service didn't bother me.

Since we've been recommended this place we went there for a dinner. We knew that it was a simple place without linencloths and a winelist but never the less it was a real dissapointment! The primi/first corse, pasta carbonara and pasta with beef didn't taste anything all, the secondi/main corse rabbit was uneatelble- two small legs cocked in a stock... More

This is a really horrible place with rude staff that just want you to finish your food and leave... I knew that it was a simple place with paper cloths and cheap cutlery but this was just so bad. I was recommended to go there and I had also read the reviews here on trip advisor so my expectations were... More

Small, down to earth restaurant with excellent food for the price. The place tends to get very crowded so come early and expect to wait half an hour for a table. It is not a place you linger at, as there is usually a queue outside waiting to get in. The food and wine is simple, but very good. The... More

the food, although not special, is good and reliable. don't expect frills or creativity here, it's typical roman fare cooked as expected from a trattoria like this. nothing less nothing more. service is hasty, but this is how you would expect it to be at a place like this. it manages to be touristy and authentic at the time. reliable...

A casual, local's trattoria that serves excellent traditional Roman cuisine in large portions. Pasta carbonara, ragu or alla riccia are all deliciously mouthwatering. The meat dishes are so good. Baccala cod is served on Fridays. The giant meat balls in traditional sauce are very good. Tucked away, just off Piazza Navona, down a pretty cobblestone lane. The price is very... More

We had dinner at this place based on a recommendation from our hotel. I am glad, because the food was simply fabulous. Prices are reasonable. If you are seeking a casual dinner with authentic roman cuisine, I highly recommend Da Tonino. Just beware that they do NOT accept credit cards.
