“Goood, traditional food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This a very nice restaurant somewhat off the beaten track behind the Villa Borghese. You will probably need a taxi as I did but I would return. The menu does contain some specialities from the Abruzzo region but much of the offering appears to be traditionally Roman. We enjoyed excellent pasta with amatriciano and carbonara. The suckling pig was outstanding although this may not a dish for the squeamish as it does come from a small piglet. Bream was also fresh and cooked accurately. An earlier reviewer has complained about the price of the fish. If in doubt, ask before you confirm your order but assume you will pay twice the price of a regular main course. The clientele are largely local and the service is friendly.

“bellisemo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Service and food were excellent. Get the basket of meats and cheeses. Well worth it. They even had a taxi take us back to our hotel free of charge.

“The Fawlty Towers of Italian Restaurants”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The waiters were pushy, insanely rude and knew every trick in the book to make you pay more than you want to. Fish is sold by weight and if you are not careful, they will bring you one weighing best part of a kilo. The food, which is slammed down on the table in front of you, is reasonable but nothing special.

If you like a bit of a drama with your meal and don’t mind a bit of confrontation with waiters, you might enjoy it. But if you want a relaxed evening with friends or a romantic dinner for two, don’t even think about it.

“Fab food and great service”

A group of us visited here in March. Had the meat anti pasti for starters and then we had suckling pig, veal and lamb chops ...all very tasty. Wine was very reasonably priced. Service excellent.
