Mediocore food and terrible service. Waiter confused our order, potatoes were cold and pasta was undercooked (and i mean it, can't call it al dente). Though I must admit that the meat I got was quite good. Finally waiter spill out whole glass of wine on me. Never again.

The best stuffed zucchini flowers! Excellent Trippa ala Romana and fabulous homemade gnocchi! The espresso was also very good and served piping hot! Casual dining and great value. Large delicious portions, friendly atmosphere, waiters that speak enough English to understand any menu questions you might have and an open kitchen and an accessible friendly chef. Do not be scared off... More

The food was decent especially for the price. The portions were quite generous so we were quite full after. Service was friendly and prompt.

We had great starters (bruschetta,) and for mains it was the sausages, Saltimbocca, spaghetti Carbonara and Fettucinini Al Fredo, the Al Fredo was GF and good, might need some more pepper but that is def personal taste as well, lovely waiters who spoke very little English...

After visiting many restaurants in Rome during my two trips here this small place has become my favorite . Last night I went there with my son and had the fettucini alfredo it was the best I ever ever had. We also had the anti pasta italiano. It was loaded with great Italian lunch meat and cheeses. The wait staff... More

What a friendly staff. Accommodated us, although we didn't have reservation. Order was prompt, although they were swamped and people were piling at the door. Food felt like my grandma was back in the kitchen making it for us. We had a traditional chicken dish. I also had a yummy, big salad. Loved it. Would recommend it to anyone.

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance after it suddenly started to rain and we needed shelter. What a lucky choice that was as the food was brill! We ordered Rigatoni Carbonara and Fettuccine Papalina and they were absolutely gorgeous. (Undoubtably no good for the waistline but so so full of flavour). They were €8 and €9 and the drinks...

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
