I was staying down the street from this Tatoria and saw a line every night. The trip-advisor logo was in the window so we decided to give it a try. We got there just as it opened one night and got seated...this was after several earlier attempts. What a disappointment. I do not understand what people see in this place.... More

Quiet little restaurant with really good pasta! It is a bit hidden, closed on Sundays. First restaurant we have been where we have not been stressed!

We both tried pasta and loved them ! Authentic, fresh and cheap. As others have said it was very local and there were locals queuing up as well. Service can be very hit and miss in Rome but it was very good here, quick and efficient. If I go back to Rome I would return here without a shadow of... More

This place was packed with of locals. You know you are somewhere special when Romans are willing to queue outside to get a table. It's typical roman cuisine done very, very well. The atichokes alla romana were excellent and the pasta dishes we tried were very tasty (excellent Bolognese). Portions were large, and the house wine very good. Very reasonable... More

I lived near Antonio's for many years in the 8o's and went there at least 3 times a week. I almost always had the Carbonara which was the best I've ever eaten, even till today. And on tuesdays only Antonio's wife made the most incredible Melanzane alla Parmigiana (eggplant parmigian) which I never found better anywhere else in the entire... More

This is a funny place. Behind two humble windows with absolutely no sign of a restaurant (see photos), you find a fair-priced, restaurant serving very fine italian food as Mamma made it. Fine Meal for two persons for 50€. But book a table. After 8 p.m. there is a waiting line on the street.
