Decided to lunch here so sat outside on the terrace. As said already on here, service is very old school but pleasant and efficient. I ordered the mixed seafood starter and the fettuccine with basil baby tomatoes and olive oil. The much mentioned bread dish appeared and then the starter. Not the biggest of portions but very good. The fettuccine... More

It started out very good: nice location, friendly waiter and great food; until the bill came! We had the buffet of antipasti, but discovered that we had to pay extra for some things in the buffet, like the artichokes. Nobody mentioned this, at the contrary they even encouraged us to take these. So not only was the 'regular' buffet (which... More

I haven't had that many good experiences in restaurants in Italy, we mainly eat at Trattoria, better value, food as good but it just isn't pretty looking and the service is a little better than average. In restaurants in Italy, you normally don't get what you pay for. This place breaks the rule of restaurants. The service is impeccable, second... More

This trattoria was recommended by our hotel "Relais de l'Opera". This family run place offers very good traditional Italian meals. The house specialty is Bucatini all'a matriciana flambé and it was good. The house wine was great. The atmosphere is great. This is a noisy popular place frequented by the locals as well as tourists. They are very busy so... More

Small group of us stopped here for a late(ish) unplanned lunch. Food was excellent and nicely presented. Service was reasonably quick and staff pleasant and friendly. Slightly more expensive than I would have normally looked at for lunch but it was worth it for the quality, and I'd have no concerns recommending it as a good place to go as... More

By chance we went there when we were looking for a lunch place..at first, not so much attractive place, probably, bcs it was empty on the outside patio. However, it filled in fast with both Romans, and tourists during our delicious meal there! Take pasta with fresh tomatoes and pecorino cheese - very good! And selected fish for apetizers. .Really...

One of the most beautiful locations in Rome, not spectacular but charming setting. Old fashioned, very welcoming. Good variety of food which is overall of a high standard. However, it is expensive, 2 adults and 2 teenagers 160 euros but we have eaten here several times so we think it is worth it for a special night out. Also beware,... More
