I'm gonna split this review up. First up, food. Very good pizzas, average wine. 4.5/5 However... Mixed feelings about the service. Upon entering, we asked a server for a table for two, but was quite frankly acknowledged and ignored. They were busy though... However, another...one came some time later, much more friendly and just asked ud for green pass. My phone was dead, however, she quickly found a way getting a charger... Although she didn't, we were told that my phone would be out in a charger and then after 5 min I would get it back to show my green pass. They never came back, but we were stationed inside meanwhile and ordered our food. The server, which was also the one we first asked for a table, once again weren't very friendly or nice. She were clearly stressed, which didn't exactly help, but in a customer's mind, bad service is bad service. So, to sum up, great pizza, not very good service (probably better with less customers...) 3.7/5More

What a disappointment! A tourist trap set in a nice environment. After reading the reviews decided on a pizza with buratta and rocket. Hard to get that wrong you would think but they did an excellent job in making a pizza that looked nice but...in fact was soaked limp dough that I was basically not able to cut into slices without butchering the thing. What a mess and what a tasteless meal. No love for the craftsmanship of baking a good pizza even though they do have a wood burning stove. And on top of that this is the first place I’ve encountered where they don’t have a house wine. Only by the bottle (and glass naturally) I’d definitely go somewhere else!More

Excellent restaurant. Pizza was exceptional. Staff very friendly. Good value for money. We would 100% recommend. We were glad we booked ahead as there was a queue to get in by the time we left.

We visited twice in a 4 day stay, it was that good. Their pizza is to die for and 2nd night we tried the pasta which was just as nice l! The staff are lovely and unlike other eateries we tried their wine is superb...and at a reasonable cost too! Nothing to fault at all!More

We did eat here twice. One time and we got totally amazed by the fantastic food, the service and the whole place that gave you something to remember. The wine list was also pretty amazing and the wine pairing by the waiters was excellent.

A great find for our last night in Italy. Restaurant felt more like a local place than those in the city center by the tourist spots. Since this was “Al Forno” I had the baked rigatoni, very hearty real food. My wife really enjoyed her...vegetable ravioli which had actual vegetable pieces, not just minced so that it could be made into a cheese filling. They also have a Neapolitan pizza oven and their pizzas seemed very popular.More

A lovely open restaurant with a great family feel, good for pizza & pasta and lovely wines. Friendly & helpful staff. No problem accommodating the 5 of us - we didn't book. Good ice creams & tiramisu.

This is a must go to every time I am in Rome. We always get the pasta, pizza and calzone. And we always get takeout as it is easier than waiting on line for a table. Friendly staff and great food at reasonable prices. Can't...go wrong.More

This is the place to go if you want great service, fantastic food and wine and a good atmosphere. We had amazing calzone twice and lovely pasta. Desserts were really good, and all for a very reasonable price seeing as you are in a city....Be warned if you go for lunch, it gets very busy with locals so you may need to book.More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant at the end of February 2020 and absolutely loved it. The staff were very polite and the atmosphere was very welcoming and felt very traditionally Italian. We both had pizzas and they tasted great. The service was very...quick and it was nice to see the pizza oven and the food being prepared. I would 100% go back to this restaurant and if you are ever in this part of Rome, I would definitely recommend a visit here!More
