A bit unusual for the area: nice atmosphere, good food, well priced. It is well hidden but it is worth the effort.
The service was very good, the food is very good and original, nicely presented.
I will probably return there

“Cute, great food, inexpensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

A bit hard to find, but worth the effort. Imaginative cuisine. Simple but charming setting.
Friendly service. Artsy. Of course, the important thing is the food. It is great--and pretty hard to find good food at these prices 2 blocks from Piazza Navona. (Even harder to find a restaurant in the area where the clientele speaks Italian, not English or Russian....)

Had a substantial lentil soup, with pieces of roasted chestnut that added an intriguing flavor and a welcome crunchiness to a good Italian lentil soup. Great Winter fare. A thinly sliced roasted veal in a beautifully flavored red wine sauce was my lucky choice for a second course. My wife's fish in aluminum foil was excellent too: moist with the pungency of olives serving as a foil for the simple pure flavor of white fish. The "pinzimonio di frutte" desert was emblematic of the style and quality of the place: pieces of pear, banana and pineapple surrounding a small dish with dark chocolate sauce. Instead of dipping raw vegetables in olive oil (the classic pinzimonio) one dips fruit in chocolate. Fun.

The tab for two with 2 glasses of wine was about 60 euro.
