A very interesting concept to have converted what once was the studio of Canova into a cafe-restaurant. We visited in December 2014 and we were rather impressed of the statues and sculptures laying around in the space which you could admire in close distance. We had coffee and not dinner and we found it to be a bit pricey. As... More

We, literally, stumbled on this restaurant when winding through the historic district. What attracted us was its rather funky appearance. To the left of the entry is a bar. To the right a small dining area on the first floor with steep stairs leading to second floor dining. The interior is filled with statuary lending the appearance of a small... More

We ate in the restaurant because it was very close to our music venue - a church in the same street. We ordered grilled fish and a meat dish. Both were excellent. The cuisine was fresh and well cooked. The wine was disappointing but perhaps we chose one of the cheaper options (by the glass).

Stop and have a least a drink or coffe at this fascinating place. You'll be surrounded by Canova's statues, plaster busts and a lot more. In summer months you can also enjoy the Roman breeze sitting on Via del Babbuino. Lunch or dinner are other options.

We passed by this place and was attracted because it looks like a museum from the outside. But yet there are dining tables inside. We peeped in and liked the cosy environment. Ordered plenty of food to share amongst ourselves as we wanted to try almost everything on the menu! Most memorable were the mussels served in a gigantic soup... More

Like anybody walking down Via del Babuino, my wife and I found the restaurant intriguing with the multiple plaster-of-paris statues & busts, and a few marble friezes. We decided to eat there after I spotted the cacio e pepe on the menu (I'd had pasta with pecorino cheese and pepper in Florence a week before and it was heavenly). Waiter... More

We stopped here for a cappucino, which was very good. The service was great, very friendly. Interesting to see the sculptures in there. It was busy inside and out.

Went here due to Frommer recommendation -- usually their right on target but not this time. I went there alone and they tried to ignore me for a while -- too bad for me that I didn't just walk away! After I finally got seated, I got three dishes that all left me disappointed. The cacio e pepe was too... More

I happened upon this place around lunchtime on a hot day in Rome and enjoyed a delicious tuna salad with my husband who ordered the chicken Caesar. A bottle of Soave at around 22 euros went down a treat and the nut gelato was a great finale. The service was friendly and we sat outside. The chicken in the salad... More

We were passing by this place one evening and what attracted us are all the figures all over the restaurant. As we found out later they were the original plaster models. The restaurant also has a preserved work shop from the 18th century. Enough about the decor. Our waiter was very friendly and he recommended a nice bottle of venetian... More
