The pasta was great and service as well

After doing our tour we were exhausted and hungry. This restaurant was a great place to relax but even eating out doors the smokers were a turn off but that is Europe. May be a fan would help. We did not complain. The food was delicious and the service quick and friendly. I would return again... read more

Excellent, food, place, people and price. Best restaurant in this part of the city. I literally have no complaints! PS. In the Vatican areas there are tons of tourist traps, so be careful. This is NOT one of those places.

We stumbled upon this restaurant looking for somewhere authentic.The service and the food were superb! It was so good we went back a second day! They genuinely make you feel welcomed and like family! I have never had such delicious pasta or pizza in my life. It is less than a 5 minute walk from the exit of the Vatican... More

Having been to the Vatican our family stopped here for lunch, we were weary of tourist traps so relied on trip advisor to suggest this little gem. It was by far the best meal in terms quality and size that we had in our 12 days in Italy. The portions are fantastic, the carbonara is fantastic. The value was outstanding... More

We've reached the restaurant based on tripadvisor rating right after we have visited the Vatican Museum. The restaurant is a genuine italian family restaurant. We had a wonderful time, great atmosphere made by Maria and her brother. The food was very good, the prices were mid to low. They served us with a plate of chorizo and cheese on the... More

We walk in and we are welcomed and seated by the daughter of the owner. Her 4 or 5 brothers own the place now. She suggests the spaghetti carbonara which we had never tried. We were blown away. Fantastico! The bread, the salad, the wine were excellent. We were in a hurry for our tour but she forced us to... More

Just finished the most pleasant lunch in Rome so far! The pasta and the lasagna were cocked to perfection!! The portions were generous (two people can easily eat with one dish of pasta!!). The atmosphere is truly Italian!! Waiters talking loudly each other, fresh fruit as dessert! Excellent quality for so little money! Excellent place to eat!!

Certainly not the cheapest best vslue for money meal we had but very pleasant service. We forgot the continantal passion for smoking so sitting outside was very unpleasant for a non smoker for me - next time I will dine indoors

There is plenty of seating inside and outside , the owner and staff are very loud in a nice Italian way serving in a jovial way as they seem to enjoy the work , singing and having fun . The pasta is really delicious and... More
