After some others places where I ate in Rome, this was really a nice place. This reastaurant doesnt have a nice view, but has nice prices. So if you want to eat a little bit cheaper, go to Trastavere and chose this or any other reastaurant on beside.

Just had the most wonderful time at one of our favorite restaurants in Trastevere! The staff is quick and very accommodating, a lot of room in the restaurant. And the variety of the food is great. I can now call Gennaro one of my good friends here in Rome!

I have been in this place in September, food was good, not too expensive but I felt it was not genuinely from Roma. I am pretty confident that no-one in this place is from Rome and everyone is a foreigner. Again, the food wasn't bad and staff good but I don't think it tasted in the proper way.

My husband and I recently chose this restaurant for 2 primary reasons: 1) it had the Trip Advisor sign posted; 2) we were tired, hot, and hungry after walking up and down Trastevere streets and not finding anything suitable, or if it was suitable it wasn't yet serving dinner. We were just about to give up when we happened upon... More

We found this restaurant only on our fifth day in Rome, and for the last 6 we were spending our evenings only there. The pasta I ate all six days was the best for all my life. Everything we tried was perfect: Italian appetizers, pizzas, pasta(My brother tried all these dishes), T-bone steak -they all are the reasons We plan... More

We came for "Tonys" and as it was closed (Monday) we dined across the street at Il Vicola. Best chicken parm and pasta. Turned out to work out for the best meal yet. Thanks to Alex!!

The staff is wonderful. A typical Italian busy restaurant. Narrow street full of tourists, noisy around, great. Just have finished fettuccine al pesto - delicate, just enough for pasta.

A disappointing meal. We ordered the chicken parmigiana and a mushroom risotto. The mushrooms were terrible and were most likely not fresh or were even canned mushrooms. Instead of fresh chicken breasts, the parmigiana was made with crumbed crusty chicken. It was like an old meal which had some cheese dropped on top and then heated up. This was our... More

We went here on our last night in Rome and wished we had come here the first day instead of the one across the street. I had really good baked lasagna and my husband had the ravioli al funghi with truffle cream sauce. So yummy!! AND it was nice and cool inside while it was warm outside. And to top... More
