Everytime in Rome we come here- Just for the variation of starters !! This restaurant is a insidertip from our priest.
Very good and nice service, incredible food and very traditional, local atmosphere
The first serving was the antipasti of the house. We ordered 2, but our waiter said that we should share. Clever advice. In came several delicious dishes and more than enough for 2 persons.
It was so good! Afterwards we could really not eat much...more but we tried a couple of their main courses and in particular Spaghetti Vongole was fine.
Very nice place, and many locals was also coming there we could see.
Fair pricing, good sercice.More
You will be treated differently if you are not a regular customers, the regular one are better treated! The red wine ‘della Casa’ is horrible! The dishes are commonplace. The prices are at the end quite expensive, a simple ‘baccala’ costs 20€!
So in a...nutshell, it’s not worth it,More
Year after year we always have to pay a visit to this excellent restaurant whilst in Rome. His antipasti are excellent. The rest of the menu is equally good. Have never managed to eat a three course meal here as we are way too full...by the second plate. Prices fair and reasonable.Highly recommend.More
This restaurant was strongly recommended by colleagues, so I guess it had a following. It was reviewed online very highly for the most part too.
Unfortunately, it rates as my worst dining experience in Europe. It was by no means cheap or valued.
First, this...restaurant does not record or respect reservations made online (quandoo.it). I had a reservation for 1900 which I received an email confirmation. The restaurant actually opens at 1930. The owner was neither apologetic or concerned. He pointed out the sign on the door as if it was my fault I couldn't read it from my hotel 10 KM away.
Moreover, the owner presents himself as being part of the dining experience: chuckling, laughing and joking-bombastically if I had to choose a word.
This showmanship does not add to experience, people are there for meals. He spends far too much time making sure the 'show' goes on and he socializes with his local guests. His time could be far better spent making sure his restaurant is being run right.
The food and service were horrible. Examples:
1. I ordered grilled swordfish. First, they served me pork (which I had to send back). Then the swordfish is really one steak sliced into two 1/4 inch thick pieces, I imagine to make it look more substantial on the plate. However, grilled, when that thin, the fish becomes dried and more like a cold cut. It was horrible.
2. The bread was stale (which I've seen in other reviews). Also, questionable cleanliness. They slice bread it in some kind of bread draw, for lack of a better term, and right there in the middle of diners in the restaurant. I imagine the draw is to control crumbs from flying around. Anyway, the bizarre choice of process is noisy and disruptive . There's also a lot of bare handling the bread.
3. My wife ordered a pasta with shrimp. The shrimp were shelled but not fully cleaned (the vein was not removed). When we asked about about the cleaning, the waiter said all we do remove the shell (un-apologetically too). That would be an unacceptable practice any case, but especially so for a restaurant at this price point.
4. I ordered a caprese salad as an appetizer which, given its simplicity, is pretty much impossible to screw up. The waiter delivered a bowl of buffalo mozzarella, no dressing. When I asked where the tomatoes were, I was delivered a second bowl, also undressed.
Putting it all together, it was a terrible experience and one fellow travelers should avoid.

We had very limited time in Rome and wanted some place near our hotel and the Concierge recommended Memmo for dinner. It was so good we went back the next night to try a couple items we had seen fellow diners enjoy during our first...visit. The antipasti platter is the best we have ever had. The pastas we tried were perfectly prepared. The waiters were very professional and helpful. It was our favorite dining experience in Rome.More
This is a no fanfare regular restaurant with nothing too write home about. The wine list is limited. The menu is limited and the food is just ok. Was so mad at myself for going with this choice rather than so many others I had...in mind. Other than convenient location close to termini nothing special about this restaurant.More
