Lovely restaurant with a choice of authentic Italian dishes. Stopped there few times just for a drink and once for a dinner. Food very tasty but portions are indeed rather small. Service very good.

We have been here for lunch. There are dishes of the day, very tasty. The service is excellent. There are tables inside under the air conditioning to escape pomeriggio heat.

Based on a recommendation whilst staying in a local b&b, me & my 11 yr old daughter had dinner here after an afternoon of sightseeing. Great food, good price & friendly family run business. Would definitely go back again 👍

Portions and service are a joke. Pasta is decent, however I would say it's merely an appetizer. If you're looking for a place to eat good food and not leave the restaurant still feeling hungry I highly recommend you stay away from this place as far as you can. If you order the Ravioli for example, you'll receive 7 medium... More

We went there for dinner. Pasta was good. We ordered beef, "medium" cooked, and what we got was super well done on the outside and totally raw inside. We asked the waitress if they could grill it more, and the result was obviously "medium" inside and burned outside. The service was very friendly, wine was good, but unfortunately in our... More

We arrived in Rome after a long days travelling. The girl who checked us into our apartment suggested we ate here as it was just downstairs from us. It was 11pm at night but they seemed happy to serve us. Service was good. Nice bread. We all opted for pasta. I chose the speciality lasagne which was good. Our son... More

We found this excellent family run restaurant on our second night in Rome just a street away from our apartment. Such was the excellent food and service that my husband had to be dissuaded from returning the next evening - we never revisit during one holiday. That said, it's on our list of recommendations to friends and should we ever... More

The service was great, which is why I feel bad for leaving this review - but I went to this restaurant after reading trip advisor and hopefully I save someone else the hassle. The food was really unpleasant, I could not eat past a mouthful (which has never happened). It might just be my personal taste but my partners dish... More

We came here with a friend based on the reviews. This is a family run restaurant and it is truly a gem! We had an amazing meal. The pasta was wonderful and we had multiple servings of the Trippa. I am looking forward to going back here on the next trip to Rome.

Thank Michael A

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
