Great atmosphere and friendly staff

Good choice at reasonable prices. Had no need to book during our midweek stay. 3 courses plus good bottle of wine is possible for 80 euros.

We thought it was closed as there was no one else in the whole place but soon started filling up with Italians.. You know what they say if their own people eat there it has to... More

Looked for somewhere close by after arriving late in Rome. Was recommended by hotel. Turned up with no reservation and had no problem getting a table. Place filled up quickly, mostly with locals. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and mostly spoke very good English, which helped my poor Italian. We followed some great recommendations for starters then... More

By chance we passed the sign for this wonderful Italian restaurant. Very pleasing on the eye, with food to match in traditional Italian style. Waiters very friendly,and would cook something off the menu if required.Well worth a look if in the area

We didn't really like the food and thought it was quite expensive. The restaurant was recommended y the hotel that we were staying in. There are better restaurants close by.

Lovely place recommended by our hotel. We ate here twice. Calamari and seafood pasta were really good. Average price. Very accommodating staff, food arrived quick, it was off good quality and hot on arrival. We had a child with us, the staff and patrons at the restaurant were gushing over the baby. Really family friendly place. Overall, great, non formal... More
