What a gem

Had the place recommended by our hotel. Great little place to go if u want some real home cooked food. The gnocchi was the stand out.

We spent two weeks in Italy - from Venice to Rome and this little restaurant (which was recommended by our hotel) had the best food we tasted. Authentic, tasty and fresh. We loved it so much that we went twice!

We went here as it was recommended by the front desk of our hotel. We had a nice table outside and were able to people watch as we ate a fantastic meal. The service was great and the menu had the perfect selection of antipasto, first and second courses. Don't miss the risotto with leeks, delicious!

Ok. The hotel sent us to Il Profeta. We went in and found all tourists at more than twice the price of this place down the block. It's a simple place but we loved what we had. All patrons spoke Italian The gnocchi was so light and perfect. My pork chop wonderful and she had the tagliatelle with wild boar... More

This is a restaurant that appeared to have little local trade, but had mostly tourists. Nevertheless, the food was excellent and the service prompt and efficient.. we mixed and matched a few dishes. The steak Florentine was superb. A VERY big portion so be warned. I like my meat rare and this did not disappoint!! We had a chicken dish... More

The place is quite simple, but warm and the personnel is kind. The menu is not too broad but you can find a good selection of typical local dishes. You can have a very decent meal for about 20-30 €. I did not try meat dishes but soups and pasta were really good. Maybe the owners could play some music... More

We stumbled out of our hotel looking for one place, and when we realized that one was much higher priced than we wanted to spend this particular evening we saw Il Mostrino's menu and decided to try it. So glad we did. No pretensions, just good food and amiable service. They have a smallish regular menu and what we assume... More

This restaurant was a short distance from my hotel and happily it opened at 6.30pm. I had a simple meal of ribollita soup (made in-house) which was all that I wanted for an early and light meal. It was excellent. That, with just mineral water to drink and a quiet ambience at that time of the evening, made a solo... More
