“Good choice for shopping break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Close to shopping area, close to Piazza del Popolo. Nice atmosphere, very friendly service (although bit slow), but the big yes is - gluten free pasta. We stop there twice, both time satisfied. Tried not only pasta (also in gluten free version), which was good enough, but also had very tasty and mild pizza (even it was pizza picante). Definitely worth our visit once we`re back in the city!

“Hungry ? A must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

An excellent place to sample the delights of Italian food. This hideaway restaurant has charm, warmth accompained by great friendly staff. Our head waitress Lisa provided us with an excellent choice of food, that was served fresh and was full of the flavour. The service was first class, the choice was second to none and a place I would thoroughly recommend. Be sure to book, as due to its location and popularity, it gets full. Top place

“Great food......Great atmosphere!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Lovely restaurant, serving delicious food in a lovely traditional setting by friendly and helpful staff!! I would highly recommend eating here, especially if you're hungry and appreciate delicious, freshly cooked ingredients. The portions are ample and I was never disappointed with my choices. A great place to eat as a couple or as a family. Great value for money especially if you love Pizza!!

“A great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We were recommended by our concierge to eat here and we were not disappointed. Everything we tried was great, pizza, pasta, and the salads. The desserts and wine were good too.

“Worth a visit to see what the fuss is all about”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Deceptively good food. We ordered an entree and a couple of pizzas for dinner - admittedly the pizzas were small (but very tasty) that we had to order more! Good selection of wines as well.

Well decorated interiors, to make the underground rooms more cozy. Good service.
