Stopped in and felt welcomed warmly. House wine and dishes. Waiter was helpful in making choices and split dishes beautifully. We did not order traditionally but asked about favorite dishes and waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Well priced local restaurant.

Great meal! Octopus appetizer was amazing! Away from the tourist scene in Roma. Definitely recommend! Staff super friendly and made us Americans feel welcome amongst locals

Food was good, especially the octopus appetizer. The service was attentive and friendly. The dining room was very cozy...as if we were out by the country side. All in all, a solid restaurant. Seafood is the specialty here.

We had the swordfish and the monkfish and we thought the swordfish was better. We also had the seared sirloin steak which was also very good. It was a nice restaurant with a friendly wait staff.

We went to this restaurant for dinner and found it to be a very authentic italian restaurant with great food, wine and excellent service. The restaurant is rather small, which makes it very cosy and perfect for a romantic night out.

Recommended by a client, this restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and the food was very good. Spaghetti ala vongoli was excellent, the monkfish unusual and good and a solid bolognese. The service was very slow, and there was one waiter who was obviously put out...More

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
