Couple from Belgium had a antipasta for two and then home made pasta. Really enough, prices rather high and an extra of 4? for the "couvert": unpleasant surprise!!

We were drawn to this restaurant down a side street in Rome for lunch by its lovely garden setting. This was the first meal we ate in Rome as we began our Italian getaway and we were not disappointed. The frutti di mare salad was fresh and crisp and the porcini risotto was delicious. Worth a stop while in Rome.

My wife and I ate dinner at this restaurant during a 4 day trip to Rome. The food is overpriced versus other restaurants in the area and very basic to say the least. The cover charge is a rip off and we waited 15 minutes to get served and another 25 minutes for the food to arrive. when the food... More

Perfectly located near Piazza del Popolo on a quiet side street. My husband and I ate here with another couple and had the best lasagna of our lives. If you follow the adage, "only eat at restaurants that are busy" while on travel, you could miss this gem.

Authentic Italian food with a nice outdoor area to eat al fresco. An italian friend booked it for us. We took the suggestion of the owner to enjoy fried octopus for a starter - which were delicious! We were not rushed and chose mostly seafood pastas that were cooked al dente. All very tasty. The frascati supoeriore was a great... More

We came across this restaurant after asking advice from a local store owner for a recommendation for somewhere to eat. This street restaurant does not look anything special when you first see it (and I hate tables that are not level) but my wife is Italian and knows her food and we both agreed that the meals and service here...

I just got an antipasti plate of prosciutto and mozzarella with some wine so it's hard to say much about that other than 'yum!'. 2 others in our party also had similar meat and cheese platters that were quite tasty. It was a great atmosphere with a friendly staff. Another in our party tried a pasta dish that was fresh... More

And pasta is very little, about the cover charge, we paid,but they didn't bring us the bread. Anyway, they cheating the tourists.... More

My husband and I ate lunch here and it was one of the best meals we had on our trip. We shared the appetizer that included several different items. The menu specifies this is for at least 2 people and they were right. They brought us two large platters of appetizers and everything was DELIOUS. We each had a pasta... More
