“Fresh and simple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Fresh with the outside view of via del Vantaggio, simple with a menu that isn't complicated, a warm risotto with schrimps and pieces of apples, with a glass of white wine, for Pranzo, plus a taste of gourmet coffee from Haiti, a micro piece of heaven,

“Out of the way restaurant a lucky find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We were strolling and window shopping when we happened upon this lovely little place. We had turbot/shrimp crepes, apple risotto with shrimp, and a fried fish/squid plate. It was all good. The fried fish and squid was almost like a tempura it was so light. Our portions were good and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Good service.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

We decided to wander and let our daughter pick a restaurant. She chose this one. I had the Amatriciana (again- I keep ordering this Roman dish and am never disappointed! The gnocci are wonderful and the calamari fritti are amazing! Also stumbled upon a great regional wine, "Lazio" by Borgo del Cedro. It was light and a little fizzy and VERY refreshing!

“Good and easy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The food was good (I had a beef steak) and the service alright. I asked for a glass of wine and it was good. Honestly, I found the prices a bit high for the quality, which was good but not exceptional. Also the place itself is not particularly appealing, a part from being very close to piazza del propolo. I would recommend it for people who want to enjoy a good, plain, traditional meal.
