Description: Un piccolo bistro (38 posti a sedere)gestito da 3 ragazzi. In cucina uno chef francese davvero fantasioso e pronto a soddisfare qualsiasi richiesta, anche la piu folle! Aperto a pranzo con menu economici (le zuppe sono fantastiche), per l'aperitivo (con prosecco e pastellati di verdure, frittura di patatine fresche, moscardini e polpette di neonata) e per la cena con piatti sempre freschissimi di carne e pesce. Un occhio di riguardo per le persone celiache utilizzando prodotti ad hoc! Inoltre....Qui si serve con il sorriso! :)

“What a fantastic hidden gem away from the tourist traps!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

This is a true authentic Italian in a traditional neighborhood. We were taken by some Italian friends and the place is 100% authentic, you won't find a single tourist in here! The food is excellent, great quality and great prices. It's in an area called Tor Vergata near Cinecitta' so not the usual historic center but if you want to witness the real Rome then take a taxi and go check it out.

“Lovely little find in Southern Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

This charming little restaurant is close to where I stayed in Rome. We went twice on my visit - once for breakfast where there is a wide array of cakes, biscuits, cereal and juice. And I was reliably informed they would make an English breakfast! Returned again on the Saturday evening, originally just for aperitifs but with that we had a huge array of antipasti, far too much to feed the 5 of us who dined. My nephew had a steak that looked and tasted delicious that I was wishing I hadn't eaten so much antipasti! All washed down with a Bellini and an excellent red. The staff are superb and one of them speaks excellent English! Would I go again? Most definitely!
