We had a fabulous dinner here! Loved everything from the ambience to the jazz music and lighting! Both the salads that we ordered were fantastic! The mains of seared tuna and steak were amazing as well. Compliments to the chef! Menu is all in Italian, but the very sweet waitress helps with that. Would definetly go back and recommned!

I cant really add to the other reviews, cute restaurant and nice staff. An excellent chef who seems to be a rising star. The seared tuna plate and the oxtail ragu fettuccine were great. This is really a non touristy "dispensa". Remember tipping is optional as for most waiters this is their career choice ,a small tip?

Went here two times because it was close to our accommodation. One night we only had some wine, they have some good selections at 16-20 EUR a bottle. The service was nice and the place wasn't crowded (went in a Monday, at about 10 PM). Liked the service and the jazz music playing in the background. We also asked for... More

I have been there several times for dinner, and I've always had a good experience. It's a place you don't notice from outside, in a location along a fast Lungotevere, so you don't bump into it by chance, although within walking distance of the city center. But it is worth a visit. The menu is quite simple, but original, and... More

Cosy and comfortable with a rustic character this small restaurant was a delightful find. Inside it is small but not cramped. The service is friendly and only outdone by the quality of the food. A charming and laid back atmosphere serves up a great end to a hectic day of sightseeing.

I spent a few days in Rome recently and, although not a fan of big crowded cities, i thought Rome should offer at least the pleasure of good dining and nice coffees. To be honest, i found it a little hard to be impressed by the restaurants and i thought to look a bit. I read a bit about this... More

A beautiful, nicely decorated restaurant bistro. The food was delicious and the service was very good. The menu was in italian (a good sign for what comes next) so the waitress translated to us. If you are in Prati neighbourhood, and you are not a 'tourist' type person, I definitely recommend this restaurant!

All the diners were Italian when we ate there. The menu is a board which is brought to table and the lovely waitress translated for us. The food was was excellent and service very friendly but not at all pushy. It was a lovely evening and I would highly recommend this restaurant.
