“Nice little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

Its a small restaurant that is served by an old couple. We came 10 minutes before they close anc still got a good service.
Their mixed bruchete is great and the pizza is large and very thin, excelent.
The prices are not high.

“Not open...Tuesday 16th April”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Pretty sure we had the right place at 27 Largo di porta Castello and at just after 7pm but the roller doors were down and no sign of life?!?

“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Walk a few minutes North of the expensive Borgo Pio street restaurants and you find this little gem near the Vatican. Large portions of tasty food; 0.5L of house wine was only 4 euros! We sat outside because the inside was full, but we were not forgotten. Servers were very friendly and food was delivered at a good pace. Two antipasti, two primis and the wine for just over 30 euros is a definite recommendation and would go again!

“Excellent restraunt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

We sat here for lunch. The place is a short walking distance from saint angello castle. The food was wonderful for a good value. Waiter spoke english and was very kind. I should note that it opens at 12:00pm. The only thing that bothered me was the size of the bathroom. If you're over 1.8 meters don't count on sitting down.
