Was there last Friday with 3 others and had a most agreeable meal. The filit steak I had was very tender and cooked to perfection. The only odd thing was I requested a garlic and butter sauce, and this did not appear to be an Italian thing. However they did it for me and it was delicious. Prices were reasonable,... More

Thank you very much for the nice words. In fact, in Italy you do not eat meat frequently with the garlic, but we are happy to have met. Sincerely, Cristina and Fabiano More

This restaurant came as a recommendation of a friend living in Fiumicino and friends with the owners. The service is great, attentive and friendly. They will speak English if you require, which is something you don't see very often around here. We ordered several dishes of meat and some antipasti. All were cooked to perfection and the meat was one... More

Good evening, that ugly title, "Avoid the flesh, we specialize in just that, and thankfully say that we do well. The pork steak on our menu is a steak of pork neck, this is because cooking it on the grill, being fatter a steak pork loin is better and is more flavorful. Maybe she preferred the less oily. greetings Cristina... More

A one night stay, an early flight and money running out meant only one thing - Pizza. After a visit to a Gelateria (on the not so salubrious side of town), a young waitress advised to visit the restaurant where her boyfriend worked - so glad we took her advice. Very friendly staff- all English speaking. Loved the family atmosphere... More

I had a two night stay in Fiumicino this week and a friend of mine drove over from Rome on Monday evening for a meal out. Luckily this restaurant was open, most of the ones around Rome are closed on Mondays for some unknown reason. We ordered a mixed grill and a beef dish to share between us, as well... More

Not what I was looking for my last night in Italy. Heavy "typical American Italian food". However the "starter" of beans, mixed salami ang grilled veggies did taste good and the large thin crust pizza was enough for 2. The Italian merlot was smooth , good and cheap(14 euro). Good tasting for an excellent price.

Dear Sir/ Madame, we regret that the restaurant was not what you were looking for your last night in Italy, but the sign is very clear "Steak - Pizzeria" no fish, but that leaves us amazed is that in your comment you enjoyed everything, the food, the wine and the price, so ..... do not think it was not that...

We came here on our one and only night in Fiumicino. We enjoyed good portions of authentic food - bruschetta and pasta - which was delicious and well-priced, and enjoyed the way the staff made us feel like family. Recommended.

I spend four months of each year in Italy and I am amazed at the reviews of this restaurant. It is a grubby courtyard where you sit on plastic chairs that spread under your weight at a table that is bowed in the middle. The antipasti was OK but the second plate of what turned out to be really poor... More

Mr. Michael, unfortunately we can not meet the needs of all customers, but I wanted to remind you that ours is a '"Osteria" so the decor is rather simple but not upscale restaurant about food .... I'm sorry you did not appreciated anything, I greet you. More
