It has really been a hidden treasure... More

I am a certified nutritionist and I found the Spanish cuisine to be one of the most well-balanced cuisines! I've been eating Spanish almost everywhere in Rome and I have... More

We ordered the LAS TAPAS (23 Euro for two people) and was very pleased with the Tapas provided. I... More

We chose this restaurant based upon 1 English review on trip advisor and were not disappointed. It is obviously very popular with the locals as it was packed out all night. Well worth a try.
