Discover the hidden tunnels under this centuries old building, now used as a wine cellar. The owner's Mama makes the pasta fresh daily and the suave will linger in your memory for years to come. Must have: the rose liquor!!!

It used to be a very pricey restaurant with good food and vibes. Now it's only pricey. Last experience was awful: although the restaurant was not fully booked we were offered a crappy table. But the most negative trait was that we were so obviously 'pushed' to order the highest priced dishes, and pushed to eat this or that, continuously,... More

Make sure you do not eat during the day if you come here for dinner. Food is excellent and plates abundant. Reservation required, it gets crowded and sometimes the service is not as excellent as the food...

Going around Grottaferrata at lunch time, my wife and I found this restaurant and decided to try. From the entrance we could see a very traditional and cozy place. The meal was fantastic and service was delightful, very friend and in a good pace. They also have an inn that I would like to try in another visit to the... More

This is a fantastic typical italian restaurant. Complimentary starter was superb as was my partners main , lamb chops. Only disappointment was my slightly bland pasta dish. Overall though well worth the visit

Perhaps the best meal we had on our 10 day Italian trip. Great bread, fresh pasta, delicious wine recommendations and a beautiful dessert, there was nothing we did not love about this place- including the atmosphere.

While our waiter spoke very little English and we spoke even less Italian, our dining experience was wonderful! We allowed the waiter to bring what he recommended and we were very surprised. The meal was delicious and plentiful. The atmosphere is upscale but very comfortable. We would definitely return.

We could tell by the amount of visitors from Roma that this restaurant was going to be special and it lived up to our expectations. Warm atmosphere, delicious food and plenty of it - lamb chops in rosemary and garlic, and orange Tiramisu were wonderful. The wine was reasonably priced and excellent. An authentic Italian experience - the little statue... More
