I have eaten here many times in the past and it was one of my favorite little restaurants in Rome. Last year I took my entire family- a party of 8. We had a reservation, but definitely did not feel welcome as I had in the past. Service was terrible. Our food was brought out at different times. They were... More

We enjoyed a tasty lunch with friendly service. Recommend the ravioli with sage and butter sauce - just perfect.

I wouldn't come back, but still an option for cheap dinner. Service was good, but quality and food is normal, not very elaborated and special stuff.. just regular dishes.

Nice local food, get recommended by local to us. Fair price and good service ( for a change! It is rare to get good customer service in Rome!) Local musicians played their instruments for coins. Mussels dish is amazing! (only recommended days such as Tuesday ,Thursday and Friday in the menu). Pasta always great and i enjoyed my oxtail that... More

After 4 days in Rome, this restaurant was a favorite of the entire family. The food and service were both great. (My only complaint is that they allow too many street venders in the area. Some were aggressive.).

We visited this place for lunch. The osteria is situated at a small piazza, where you can sit outside and eat. Try the Penne Arrabiata, which is just as spicy as it's supposed to be.

Sought this out as recommended by Rick Steves. Ordered bread, gnocchi, chicken with peppers (roman style) and of course wine. We loved everything. The chicken was amazing. My husband, who is very hard to please, deemed it the "best meal ever" and insisted on thanking the chef personally. Ate outside and there was a gentleman walking around playing accordion and...

My family and I stopped in here to eat because the patio was nice and the restaurant looked busy. Unfortunately, that is the best thing I can say about our experience. It was expensive, the service was painfully slow, and when the food arrived it was inedible. My aunt's dish tasted so much like Chef Boyardee it became the running... More

I had dinner here today. Not a big deal, standar food, a bit pricey in comparison with the rest of the restaurants in the same street, the portions are small. The athmosphere could be better but the service was great.

We ate here on our last night (our apartment was nearby) and were a bit disappointed. Compared to the other meals we had in Rome, this one just did not compare. Our pastas were something we could have made at home and the service was just alright.

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
