We stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for a good place to eat in this area of Rome in August (which is surprisingly difficult). We checked the reviews on trip advisor and decided to go in. Our waiter was really friendly and explained everything to us. We had a nice half bottle of wine and we both chose a primi... More

We traveled for two weeks in Italy and saved the best for last! We really were not very hungry after 14 days of pasta and gelato but as this was our last night we decided to find a local restaurant near our hotel. Little did we know that we would stumble into a truly fabulous restaurant! The service was warm... More

What a great find! A wonderful restaurant close to the vatican and full of class! A new space that is beautifully done and the food and wine do not disappoint! A large wine selection and food from pasta to lamb to veal. Small spots for couples and space for a larger group too. Find it!

Staying nearby vatican during our visit to Rome we have tried the restaurant. They provide roman cuisine with a twist. Tuna steak was great , same applies for fried anchovies. Fried cod fish was std. Main dishes are around 15 euro appettizers around 7 eur8.

Average food, very poor grilled lamb, slow waiting staff, ambivalent patron. Read the review and made some effort to find this place. Maybe they were having a bad night but left very dissapointed. Many better place to try.

Really good service and decent food...but the best cappuccino so far! We stopped here twice. Once to eat. I got a "side" salad that was large enough for four and my husband got a hamburger made with veal and lamb which he loved! The second time, we sat for a cafe only and received the same exceptional service!

We stopped here for lunch today after reading the reviews on TA. The decor was very nice and the manager/owner was nice; however, we were disappointed in the overall experience. The menu selection s not great. The waitress was terrible. She took forever to bring us water and was so slow to take our order that the owner had to... More
