we found ourselves north of the Vatican Museum on a Saturday night after a long long walk from the Olympic Stadium and in a residential area - we were going to get the metro back into town but then we saw the lights on here and it was a really nice, friendly, homely yet busy trattoria/pizzeria. Pizzas were great, desserts... More

Come here for an authentic experience in Rome. Recommended by our B&B owner. Fully packed with locals, great food, nice service, lively atmosphere, not expensive. The most memorable dinner we had during our 5 day stay!

Stumbled across this place and had a lovely lunch here The food was excellent and it must be very busy in the evenings as the place is packed with tables. Pasta perfect, pizza great too.

Wonderful food and well recommended by locals, but resturant is aimed at Italians so language and customer focus is an issue. Would go again but only for the food

When in Roma, seriously stop by and have an amazing meal, or two or three and be sure to leave some room for dessert! While on a rugby tour to Europe we were directed here by the owner of the B & B we stayed at, since it's run by a former Italian National Rugby player. Best decision all tour!... More

This place was recommended to us and when we saw it we were quite surprised as its rather dated from the exterior. When we sat down our 'host' threw the menus at us while talking on a mobile phone. There menu was a bit uninspiring, mainly pizza and pasta. Then our waiter who seemed to be in a bad mood... More

Found by accident, we were looking for another place but gave up and went in here. As mentioned by others the place is full of locals, always a good sign. My wife doesn't drink wine prefers her whiskey and coke, the waiter delivered a bottle and just left it on the table, at the end of the meal he gauged... More

Everything tastes fresh (the waiters went out of their way to point out was is NOT fresh on the menu.) The result is simple, delicious Italian food. Friendly but professional service. Excellent value. It was a family trip for us, and we ended up dining there everyday while finding new options on the menu.
