I had higher expectations because of Tripadvisor rank. Lasagne was ok but it didn't have enough taste. House white wine was cheap and good. Service was friendly but it didn't feel personal, the place was like a small factory - everything went smoothly but nothing special to remember.

It was recommended by our B&B across the street so we checked it out. Good menu, popular, reasonable prices. Service was good and very friendly, English spoken well. Not a gourmet place but very well done family type with fair prices. We had pasta Amatriciana and linguine with clams and mussels - both very good although I hate getting little... More

The pizza was ok, nothing special. The restaurant is small but good used. The waiters were friendly at the beginning but in the end more or less kicked us out (brought the bill without asking for it) because they needed the table.

We visited this taverna on the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. We were not disappointed. I had pizza and my husband had ravioli. Delicious. Reasonably priced, and the best recommendation, locals were eating there. We returned for dinner the following evening. The taverna was extremely busy, but the efficient staff made sure we were welcomed and attended to.... More

After our concierge strongly suggested we eat at this "local" restaurant, our expectations were high. However, we found the food to be very disappointing. The appetizer prosciutto was old and hard, and the main course (spaghetti with meat sauce) was so salty you couldn't taste anything else. What's worse, the food made me sick later that night. Although the prices... More

We ate outside and the food was delicious; the prices were reasonable. I had the spaghetti with sauce. It was homemade pasta cooked al dente. The other guests had lasagna and anchovie pizza. They both liked their meals very much. The spaghetti and pizza were 7€ and the lasagna was 8€. Soda was 3€ for a can. We were expecting... More

Everything is very tasty as home-made food, low prices, excellent service! Tiramisu and white chocolate cake with strawberries are delicious

Do not let the three $$$ confuse you ... The price is very reasonable. I had a fantastic eggplant parmigiana full of rich flavors and my husband had lasagne each for 8€. The place is small (a liitle cramped) but the staff make you feel welcome.

This restaurant is one of my favourite restaurants in Rome!! I've been here for three times during my stay in Rome. The man who runs this restaurant is my good friend who helped me a lot when I visited Rome two years ago. I was really surprised about their service and food when we went there. All workers can speak... More

I visited the restaurant for a birthday meal with my partner and had a great time. The food was lovely, the house red went down a treat and desert came with a candle and a rendition of happy birthday! Would definitely go again!
