This restaurant was recommended to us by the friendly staff at our nearby hotel (the Hearth Hotel). We were welcomed warmly and seated quickly and provided with an English menu. Our waitress expertly explained some options and specials to us. To start off we had a pasta dish and mine was a pasta Carbonara which was splendid. For the main... More

We happened upon this gem of a little place after being mistreated elsewhere and bolting for the door... Boy, were we lucky! As mentioned by others, there is not much outdoor seating, but the interior is very tastefully done and sets the tone for good things to come. From the antipasti of the day, which was a scrumptious little broccoli... More

Not much seating outside, so we ate in. Lovely decor. Short menu, which is a good sign that everything is fresh. Good food, friendly staff. Rum baba with pistachio ice cream reccommended.

Very pleasant environment, excellent service, and easily the best carbonara I have tasted. At a quite reasonable cost.

Food was perfectly fine with Veggie and Gluten-Free dishes clearly marked which is rare in Continental Europe but service seemed rushed: the staff pretty much hovered over us waiting to clear our dishes.

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
