Great small restaurant in Trastevere, very cozy & super nice atmosphere! The pasta was amazing & the most important is that you feel like a local 👍🏼👍🏼

Took a friend of mine from Australia for lunch, the service was appalling the carbonara was the worst, scrambled egg with over cooked pasta. Couldn’t wait to leave!

We had several experiences in this restaurant, but the best ones were at lunch. Lunch time is not so busy as at night. If you wish to go at night I strongly recommend making a reservation, otherwise you will wait or simply not be seated....More

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable

In Rome most restaurants are in walking distance from each other. Suggest you have a look and if they don't just walk to the next one.
