We ate here a few weeks back on a Sunday whilst visiting Rome for the weekend. The food / wine was excellent and the staff were really friendly / welcoming. We would highly recommend. We also ate at ad hoc which again was good but this was our favourite. We will definitely return when we come back to Rome.

Nice staff, good atmosphere, great spaghetti. We tried the aspargis carbonara and truffle spaghetti, and it was the best spaghetti we have ever tasted.

We stayed in the neighborhood and enjoyed two dinners at this restaurant. The staff is friendly, the food was very delish and the decor is very attractive. They serve local wines and local recipes. They also gave us a discount because we mentioned trip advisor.

I did lots of research on places to eat and to be fair this wasn't on our planned list. However, the place recommended by our B&B was a little family trattoria and we fancied something a bit more special. The restaurant I fancied was closed and this place was just up the road. It looked very stylish and the menu... More

We failed to find this place 1st time we tried as It has temporarily moved down the road apparantly. It is a very nice looking restuarant. All the food was delicious and the waiting staff were also nice. Unfortunately it seemed to be a bit too busy for them to cope and it was a real struggle to order deserts... More

Surprised to stumble across this gem fortunately open late on a Sunday night. Cutting to the chase the gnocchi with truffled clams was one of the best dishes we've ever had. The staff were very helpful and spoke English fluently recommending a great local wine. Dinner was excellent value and a wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We were fortunate to be told by a neighbor, that the restaurant had moved a couple of doors down the block. We enjoyed a wonderful meal. It was full of locals, but the waitress was quite fluent in English too.

We were looking for a restaurant in the vicinity of the place we were staying. A quick search on Tripadvisor suggested this restaurant. In three words: it was great. In more detail: it was the perfect combination of super friendly service, great food and a reasonable price. The tuna balls were a very tasty surprise, the bread was heavenly and... More

Best meal in Rome considering the price. New location and cool interior with focus on wine. Can only recommend this place if you are fed up with pizza and want the real Rome cooking experience.
