“Amazing - A must in Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This was by far the best meal I had in Europe over my 2 month travel to 8 countries.
The food was so amazing, we went on a saturday night and I so wanted to go the next night but they are only open thur, fri & Sat. I would plan my next trip just to go to this place.
The menu is fresh and different every week except one dish which Machiavello recommended and this was so amazing. The wine was beautiful and Machiavello the owner knows whats best with each dish.
This is not a place to go to a rush and get in and out, service is slow due to the detail of this place so sit back, have a glass of wine and enjoy your dinner as it comes. The menu is explained to you in detail which is lovely so you know everything about the dish, which is great but also makes it hard to choose as they all sounds so amazing.
Highly recommend. A hidden gem.

“Very nice experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Difficult to find this restaurant but it's worth it
We arrived 30mn before our booking time, but were installed by the waitress and served a (free) and very nice house wine to wait.
The place is small (not more than 10 tables), cosy and pleasant
The menu is simple and renewed every week
The chef/manager (Mauro) is super nice, spends time with people, explains the menu and recommends wines
Food is simple but tasty, with some innovative dishes!
Go there, dont hesitate!

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Although difficult to find as it's tucked down a small alleyway, it is well worth finding! The atmosphere was vibrant and friendly, Mauro was a superb host and guided us through the menu. He is extremely passionate about food and this was apparent by the time he spends with guests and his explanations of every dish. We enjoyed three wonderful courses accompanied by Mauro's excellent wine recommendation. This restaurant is a true gem - a must visit when in Rome!

“Weird experience not like a normal restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

As indicated by others this is in no way a normal eating out experience and maybe because of this it made the evening even more memorable.

Be prepared for a lengthy evening out as Mauro is very good at his explanations about what you are about to eat. Very authentic Italian cooking at its best and very good value for money.

“Hard to get a table but so worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We had trouble getting a table - as we hadn't reserved but luckily someone didnt turn up. There was just the owner working front of house and he had a huge amount of passion and the hospitality was exceptional. Take time - this place should not be rushed, there is one spaghetti dish that is always on the menu, the rest changes every week. All of the food was delicious! We should know, we had a starter each and then two first course pasta dishes!
They also have a great wine selection, which is recommended to you based on your meal choice and taste buds!
Overall it's a great Italian restaurant and an experience you won't forget in a hurry!
Have to visit!
