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.

Really very good cooking without being expensive. Spaghetti carbonara was perfect, steak really very good, ham and choux buns unusual but good, fillet in a blue berry sauce brilliant. Imaginative cooking and well delivered. Lots of locals eating there, always a good sign, would go again tomorrow.

This is probably not a place with many tourists, the menu was written on a board in Italian only and there was no english menu. As it turned out that was no problem at all - our waitress translated the entire menu, item by item, for us. I believe that we were the only non-Italians in the restaurant. We each... More

Came here on our first night in Rome as it was close to the hotel. What a great choice! Relaxed atmosphere, good food and friendly service all made for a memorable night. Having read about the blackboard menu in advance, we were prepared for the translation by the waitress. I'm not sure we got entirely what we were expecting but... More

As soon as we arrived, the waitress couldn't have been more helpful. She explained all of the dishes on the menu in detail, answering all our questions. When the antipasti arrived, it was amazing - incredibly tasty cheeses and meats - well worth trying! Both mains and dessert were similarly interesting and flavoursome. Not cheap, but highly recommended!

Ate here late March. One of the best meals we had Italy. Delicate pastas and great service. Not overpriced like many restaurants in Rome. Duck confit pasta was one of the most memorable dishes I've had.

No great variety in dishes but all of them delicious and reasonably priced, what else could you ask for?
