I cannot say enough great things about this restaurant! The food is delicious, the decor & vibe are excellent. But what really sets this restaurant apart is the service. From the Host (his name was either Emmanuel or Manuel - my apologies my wife thinks it was Emmanuel and I thought Manuel, but he was an absolute joy), the servers and the two owners - this place makes you feel right at home. We went with our teenage sons and we just had a great time - chatting with everyone and enjoying great food . We enjoyed their hospitality so much that we went back twice in four nights (Im not one to go to a restaurant twice during vacation, but this was truly a great place). Oh and I forget to to add- on our last visit (and out last night in Rome), they actually gave us a bottle of wine to take back (we enjoyed it in Florence) and strongly suggested a restaurant in Florence (which we went to, and Marco was right on the money - it was excellent, but not as good as Il Fellini - but still the best place we ate at in Florence). Regarding cost, it's truly not that expensive - especially when compared to other restaurants in Rome or other large cities such as NY, LA, SF, Paris, etc...
Having grown up and lived in NYC for forty years, Im use to great italian food and we have our favorite place in Little Italy - so trust me when I say - put this restaurant on your list. It's so good - I told my wife that the only reason I would ever come back to Rome (it was our third visit and the crowds are just absolutely terrible and can ruin your visit) is to come eat here.
Make your reservations and enjoy the experience - say hello to Manuel, Marco & crew!
