We visited in September after a trip to the Vatican on a Friday evening as it was quite convenient. There was a good selection of courses on offer and menus in all languages but the treat was the dishes of the day that the patron told us about. We had some wonderful stuffed corvette flowers since they were in season... More

After a long day of walking, we were looking for a restaurant close to our rental apartment (close to the wall to the right of the Vatican). We sat inside a clean restaurant. The service was very quick and the pace throughout the meal perfect. The food was really good, tasty, different. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal. In... More

We came here one evening after a long day walking around Rome. We sat outside on the street, and although it took a while to get served, the evening was very pleasant. The best thing however was the daily specials they do. A lot of the menu is dependent on availability of fresh produce and as such, they have a... More

We ended up here as it was the only restaurant we happened upon near the Vatican that was open on Sunday night. We must have just picked an off night because half of our company had eaten there the day before and been pretty pleased. Upon first glance at the menu the prices seemed quite reasonable, especially given the area... More

Don't be fooled by the outside, venture in and prepared to be amazed. The decor is simple but warm and welcoming, lots of wood but lovely comfortable chairs perfect for an ample behind. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the food is fantastico. Listening to the waiter describe the various dishes was mouth watering. We have every intention of returning... More

Starter came out undercooked, fried fish that was ice cold in the middle, though main course was quite nice. We found the staff ignored us, especially when a request to direct us to the rest rooms in both English and Italian was completely ignored by one waitress who simply turned her head away from addressing me. Would not eat here... More
