The food was superb. The rossini was very good. As was the lasagne. The pana cotta with the fruit looked gorgeous and tasted just as good. The service was also very good.

I have been to Rome 5 times in the last 5 years and always come to this restaurant. It is fine dining without the fuss or high price. Would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a top restaurant experience.

My grown son and I were spending a few days in Rome, with his cell phone, he was able to look up restaurant for us to have a nice meal.

We had smoked duck carpaccio, beef carpaccio and focaccia to start with and for the main course we ordered fresh oven baked sea bass accompanied with asparagus and artichokes. What a taste feast! Their wine list is huge and allows you to chose from... More

This was my first dinner and my first visit in Rome. All I chose to order was a starter of prosciutto and mozzarella and I couldn't have been more pleased. Very fresh food, great service and a great atmosphere within close proximity to the Spanish steps.

One of the best value restaurants in the area! Excellent truffle tasting menus for more than decent prices. Cozy little place with super friendly service and relaxed atmosphere! The wine list leaves you plenty of options to complement your truffle menu. Great! Highly recommended.

The food was great. The ambiance was a nice change - it is more like a restaurant at home (new york city) than the many rustic type places that we dinned in. It gets busy so make a reservation. We wanted to go back a second time but it was full. Definitely a go-to place in Rome.
