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

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!
