Description: There are a number of posts (in the forum or review of location) that mention this trattoria in Rome, but no actual review of it or a listing of it under restaurants in Rome. We just ate there and thought it was fabulous. We would like an opportunity to review it on TA.

We went for a late lunch at 3pm after St. Peter's and the Vatican museum. It is cramped and noisy, and full of atmosphere because of it. A real local haunt. I had the carbonara, the best I've had. Very reasonably priced.

You can try only pasta and antioasti there. There were no deserts or even coffee. Attentiin to the clients is poor. The pasta which we ate was so simple thar you cannot call it restaurant food. There are a lot of better places not far from this place. Do not waste your time and money.

If you hate the tourist spot this is a good spot to try. We were clearly the only Americans in the joint. Quaint atmosphere, good (not great, but good) house red. No English speakers and not terribly expensive but not bargain basement either.

What I love about Rome is discovering this amazing restaurants that all the locals go to. This hostaria is so discreet you could almost walk past it ! But once inside the simple decor and bustle creates for an abundance of atmosphere. The menu is simple but inviting, we shared a few amazing pasta dishes with sauce and one with... More

We went there for lunch after recommendations from friends. They put a lot of tables into the small space but were still completely packed. No wonder since the food is fantastic! Honest and no nonsense kind of food. The crowd was mainly locals and the occasional foodie tourist. We had great pasta peppe, fantastic rabbit, very simple but very tasty... More

Just along the road from our apartment, we stopped here after a busy afternoon of sightseeing because of the positive reviews we had read on Tripadvisor. We weren't disappointed either, with friendly staff, great food and a lively but not too noisy atmosphere. Very reasonable bill at the end too! Would recommend highly.

This is a restaurant for the locals and was suggested to us by a local. You have a great tasty meal with few ingredients for a very small price. The staff is friendly but busy. The atmosphere is graet and authentic, but however not Romantic. It would advise you to go their with your wife/girlfriend for lunch, not for dinner.... More

We went to Da Tonino's 3 times during our 7 night stay. Reasonable and great food. Our favorite was the Pasta Arrabiata.

This place was a recommendation from several of my Italian friends who live in Rome. I went there twice during my 7 day stay in Rome this year. The place is tiny and not exactly on the main street (which is a good thing for me): just a few metres off Vittorio Emmanuele, right behind the Chiesa Nuova. There are... More
