Had lovely pizza and a bottle of house red. Reasonably priced. Only issue was with a mix up with the bill and slow to sort it. However staff are friendly.

The best pasta I ate in Rome! Beautiful wine, home made breads and delicious food. A very varied menu and quite different to anywhere else we went. Advisable to book!

Close to the center but not in a touristic area. We went to this place with some Roman friends and we were therefore treated as "locals". Maybe this can explain that our impression was great (compared with other reviews). Food was very good and also...More
