“An oasis of enjoyment after a morning-long Colosseum tour.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Some friends had recommended this restaurant to us, and we're sure glad they did. It was about a 15 minute walk from the end of our tour and a bit tricky to find this small piazza but well-worth the effort. The outdoor seating area looks into the small Piazza Margana and has a large canvas awning as a sun-shade, so it was very comfortable to be seated outside, with lots to look at and people-watching opportunities. The food was delicious and well-priced, and the service timely. Being a beat off the beaten track, it tends to feel more authentic than many other spots.

Two thumbs up !







it is a bit tricky to find this small

“Great lunch after a long morning sightseeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

Great location for lunch after a full morning bashing the cobbles of Ancient Rome. Only 5 minutes from Capitol Hill and set in a lovely peaceful square. The battered and fried vegetable anti-pasta dish was delicious as was everything else we ate. Good service from a family staff. Recommended.

“Rome on a plate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Set in one of Rome's more tranquil squares this lovely Roman restaurant. Traditional food with a modern twist. Exceptionally pleasant waiting staff. Pasta here is served as a Primi Course ...so don't go expecting a great big serving. No pizzas either. Wonderful fresh ingredients served piping hot. Refreshing to eat somewhere surrounded by Italian diners. Worth every euro.

“Great lunch spot on a sunny square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Thins is a traditional Roman trattoria in a convenient location. I enjoyed an innovative anchovies antipasti followed by a daily eecially: fettuccini with asparagus and ham. There could have been a bit more asparagus but the dish was well prepared.
