I had dinner here with my family on a Sunday night. I was quite tentative, because I had seen the TripAdvisor reviews, and it appeared that people's experiences were quite polarised, with some being very negative and some being very positive. I was very relieved that our dining experience fell into the latter camp! We had a very pleasant night:... More

There are many better restaurants in Trastevere than this one. I would certainly not recommend it to any of my friends. It was recommended by my italian teacher. The seating in the courtyard is probably the best thing. The food below avarage and certainly not worth the price. No wonder it was almost empty on a friday evening.

One walks in from a busy street in the Trastavere to dine in a peaceful, secluded walled garden. The food is mainly cucina romana and is excellently cooked. The service is exemplary and the prices reasonable for the standard of the cuisine .

Had dinner at this restaurant to celebrate my second wedding anniversary. Was not disappointed as the dishes were very good and the staff friendly. The area around the restaurant is great and our table was nicely located in a quiet area of the back garden. Would not hesitate going back again.

Visit this beautiful garden and enjoy the cosy atmosphere for a special dinner. Very good food, a little slow service, but you will have a nice evening!

It has a lovely back garden area, friendly staff and amazing food. I highly recommend this place for anyone keen to try a good Roman meal at a... More

I couldn't disagree more with the previous two postings. My wife and 17 yo son just returned from a wonderful afternoon meal in the lovely secluded courtyard of this restaurant. The food was excellent and the service friendly and attentive. We had a near perfect experience.

We were shocked that we were able to get an 8 pm courtyard dinner seating reservation with only 45 minutes notice. However, the very honest staff informed us not to be shocked because "the chef has no more stars" and therefore no one dines there anymore. We went anyway, based on a hotel concierge recommendation. Well, true enough, the original... More

Had dinner for two here. Setting is great, old courtyard, pictures are accurate. Food is just fair to ok, as is the service. If you have a group who like to linger and chat over drinks and antipasti and food is secondary, this would be a good choice. If you are there for the food, take a short taxi ride... More
