We went here on our first night in Rome, having been recommended it by the guesthouse we were staying in. The place was packed when we arrived at 10pm but they did manage to find us a table for two people without a reservation. Food...was tasty and wine list extensive. Only issue was trying to get the waiter's attention but we put this down to the restaurant being at full capacity.They were friendly otherwise. We had 2 mains, 1 bottle of wine, 2 sides and 2 desserts = 77 EUR. Not the cheapest but it was convenient for the location.More

We have waited 45 minutes stand after reservation time (time reserved was 10pm and we waited till 10:45pm). After that, we received a table and the waiters and staff did not explain the reason for waiting 45 minutes (even simple excuse) as well they served...everything with close face and it seemed as obligation (too much effort to them) ask what we would like to eat in the sequence. The food is ok, service and staff are disappointing, disrespectful, and paying 73 euros of bill (couple) definitively you can choose something else. Hope they learn how to serve people, until there, go to another restaurant!!! TOURISTS GO TO ANOTHER RESTAURANT!!!!!More

We went to this restaurant because it was in the area where we were staying. It was not busy as it was early for dinner, 7:00. Two of us ordered pizza and it was served cold which was a surprise.....it was impossible to cut so...I had to tear it apart with my hands as it was served as one huge piece! Neither of us was too happy with our selection. The pictures of the food look so great on trip advisor but our food didn’t look or taste that great. Our waitress pretty much ignored us and the waiter/table clearer was downright rude, practically hitting us in the face as he removed plates. I would not go back.More

The pizza was not taste at all! Very lazy and sleepy waiters, that not really want to serve guest. They brought the wrong pizza that we ordered.In other word give as that they have and not what we ordered. And all this was very expensive.

Good food, freshly prepared, but terrible service. We were asked to move table after being seated and having ordered and been served drinks! Did not feel welcome especially at the end when it came to paying as the waiter who took the payment was rather...rude, making it quite evident our custom was not valuedMore

We were travelling as a party of 10, over in Rome for the Ireland-Italy match and staying nearby. Our waiter provided us with a mixture of traditional starters, and recommended a selection of local red and white wines which were both delicious and very reasonable....The food was all excellent, with a great selection of pasta, but special mention must go to the fillet of beef (con lardo) which was melt in the mouth good! We sat on most of the night - getting through several bottles of great wine - and the bill was very reasonable. So good in fact, we headed back again the next night and it was equally excellent the second time. We will definitely be back.More

Very quite and nice place. Very polite the service. I had the chicken with potatoes and vegetables inside, was a fantastic choise. The bill was a bit more than expected but right according to the experience offered. If I’ll have the opportunity I’ll try again...this nice restaurant.More

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.
