Reading other reviews on Tripadvisor, I think we must have arrived as the chef left! Although the location & waiting staff were very pleasant, the meal was inedible. However it must have been the cheapest bill we had during our Italy tour so I guess you pays your money... I cannot say other than avoid :(

We came there by accident looking for another place during lunchtime. It was a pleasant surprise. We were greeted with short menu. We both had mare / terra tris di antipasti which were delicious. Than we had ravioli with tuna and zucchini and Angus beef. Our daughter loved her gnuddi with spinach. It was all excellent. The atmosphere was casual... More

We were in tivoli for 3 days and we made sure we came back here for another experience and the second night was even better.. The host was like my Italian favourite uncle and the menu was superb!! Not over fancy, good quality food and very reasonable on price and the place was just cool. Be sure to come here,... More

Last Monday, the 29th of December 2014, most of the restaurants within the city were closed. While going and searching around, it was by chance that we found this hidden small restaurant. It was a very good experience; meal, service, Price and atmosphere. And we went away, after the lunch, absolutely delighted. The owners, who actually served us, were very... More

During my latest trip to Italy with my mother, we spent our first evening in Tivoli, at this restaurant, as it was close to our B&B. This part of the town is somehow grim, with walls covered with graffiti, yet the kindness and style of the people who run it, a certain warm 'nonchalance', plus the excellent and rather original...

We walked here from the Villa Gregoriana in about 10 minutes and had a tasty fish lunch in the shade of the lime flower trees in the little square in front of the restaurant. Service was prompt and friendly. Good wine recommendation. The starters were excellent, particularly the mixed seafood or padellato di mare. The tuna with sesame main course... More

Since my friend and I were staying around the corner, we walked by this small restaurant's unassuming little arched facade every day for the better part of a week before we finally decided to try it for lunch. What a surprise was in store for us! As it was Wednesday, the fish markets had had a fresh delivery and this... More

Dined on my own - a real friendly welcome from the owners. Lovely food, good wine recommendations. Very reasonable prices. Definitely recommend that you seek this place out..! Pictures don't do it justice - it's cute and attractive "shabby chic"...
