“A little gem near the Pantheon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We enjoyed a great meal here on our first night in Rome. We were advised by a local about this little three generation, family owned gem. Food and service were both excellent and the fresh minestrone soup was delicious. An unexpected treat was the salad and cheese with the bread. The Roman style artichokes was also very tasty. The generous serving of wine would fill two glasses back in the states. A tip for travelers in a touristy place is not to eat at a restaurant that is hawking tables as you pass by. The very good ones, this one included, do not have to work to fill tables since they get the locals as well as tourists.

“Less than average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Went there because of a trip advisor sign, giving the restaurant a 4.5 rate and it was disappointing.Staff is a bit rude, serve is small and food is eatable.The restaurNt next door with a trip advisor rate of 4 is actually much better in all aspects.Do not recommend it.Restaurant atmosphere is kind of creep too.

“Perfect place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Very comfortable place to eat and spend evening. Nice waiters, traditional roman food, good home vine. Big portions. So far best place where we eat. In the bill was included 2eur and 3eur lines, which meaning we dont understand (bread and water?), but wasnt included desert for 6eur.

“Bravo Pietro!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Thank you TA for leading us to this restaurant. This restaurant has:

+ Fantastic food: fresh and home made. The best we've eaten during our visit in Rome.
+ Excellent service: even though they don't speak English they know what your wishes are.
+ Great price - quality: we spent 40 euros for an anti-pasta, two main courses, a bottle of wine and a bottle of water. Including tip! We received a complementairy glas of proscecco and some kind of cookie.
+ Nice ambiance: very cosy and most people who visited this restaurant were Italian.
+ Located right behind the Pantheon.

Tip: try the truffel pasta (if truffel is your thing of course)!
