The gentleman who I rented my apartment from recommended this place as having excellent Pasta. At 7:30 p.m., there was a short line to get it. Being Rome, it is a bit early for dining so I went to see other sites. I returned at 9 p.m. and the place was still very full. The service was attentive and friendly.... More

This place used to be better a couple of years ago - now it seems they gave in to the American tastes (and I love America but not the American food) of making everything very salty.

Tasty well cooked tripe and ox tail. We think the food is great. Value for money. Open for dinner at 7, by 7:30pm place already full. So it gets busy quickly and service is a bit rushed.

I just found this little restaurant "by chance". It is almost "tiny" with a guest-capacity of about 30 maximum - but it is really cosy and nice. Food is perfect (I had pasta carbonara; you saw and felt that this is the true carbonara - with egg and not with cream). The house-wine was perfect (5 Euro/ mezzo litro) and... More

The restaurant is small so the quarters are close. It is a family atmosphere. the food is excellent. I had pasta with eggplant and the eggplant actually outlasted the pasta - rare. A good find.

This small restaurant is very popular among locals as well as tourists, so come right at opening time (7 p.m.) or prepare to wait for a table. The service - good and fast - and low prices seem to be the big draw. The menu consists of basic Italian food - some interesting, like oxtail and rabbit - yet Da... More

The pasta was tasty & with broccoli. The waitresses are friendly, good humoured, the atmosphere is very pleasant & relaxed with a lot Italians eating there. It's like an old fashion restaurant, we enjoyed eating there & would go back. It's difficult to be served vegetables with pasta in Rome & this place was the only one that did.

This place had long queues on a Monday night to get in. Quite honestly I cannot understand why. Apart from having a few tables and being small, we have not had the best meal in Rome in this place. It was not our worst either. It is cheap and cheerful with a cosy feel. We ordered the red house wine... More

We were greeted by a friendly waitress who immediately after noticing we had a stroller proceeded to organize the front table overlooking the road so we could just set it next to us. My husband and I had pasta dishes, I had the amatriciana and he had the carbonara. Both very tasty, al dente (as expected) and the portion was... More

we arrive around 11pm starving and wet. They greeted us with sincere smiles and cooked as normal service. Dessert - ricotta cheese tart - was good too. Very good price/quality ratio

Description
There are a number of posts (in the forum or review of location) that mention this trattoria in Rome, but no actual review of it or a listing of it under restaurants in Rome. We just ate there and thought it was fabulous. We would like an opportunity to review it on TA.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

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.
