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

I came here many years ago for lunch in 1999, and wanted to see how much had changed. Although it's become a lot more popular with tourists, it is still a lovely family restaurant with great service and great food.

Don't expect fancy food or service but do expect some of the best Roman food in Rome . Broccoli was delicious and so was oxtail but the stand out is the eggplant pasta beyond compare ! Cheap , cheerful and delicious !

We tried the carbonara and it was very good for the price (8€). The place is not really fancy and they only take cash.

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.

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.
