Amazing, lively atmosphere! Food is exceptional with fantastic service. Couldn’t ask for a better Italian meal. Grazie!

We went to this restaurant as per recommendation of one of our friends that came to Rome before and even though we knew it was going to be good, we all were surprised with the good experience we had. The food is amazing obviously, but...the best part is the service, Diego was our waiter and he really took good care of us and we really felt comfortable like we were at home. Then to top it off both owners were always coming over and bringing more free food and wine and in the end you have limoncello and amaretto on the house. And in the end the bill was 20 euros per person. Really the best experience while eating in Rome even compared with all the other places we went.More

This was one one of the best places I ate during my visit. The authentically exuberant behavior of the staff was as Italian as it gets and it definitely added to the experience! The staff were also very prompt and made sure you had everything...you needed. And the food was of course absolutely brilliant. I got the Spaghetti alla gricia and it was one of the best things I ate during my visit. And the prices were also very reasonable. Should've probably gotten some dessert as well, but alas, I was in a bit of a hurry. Definitely stop by here when you're in Rome!More

Revisited this fantastic establishment after a 3 year absence. In my opinion, this is the most authentic and entertaining dining experience you could possibly experience. Managed by Mama Maria and her family, it's a joyfully noisy experience that is simply the best. Having eaten here,...and other restaurant experience is truly bland. The service is excellent, the food all home cooked and plentiful, with the homemade Tiramisu being the best I've ever eaten. This was the highlight of my entire Rome trip.More

Amazing service. While many restaurants in Italy can be quite aloof to their customers, this place was not only welcoming, but went the extra mile to encourage repeat visits. The staff was very attentive, warm, and generous. We were even given a free dessert, coffees,...and limoncello to enjoy while we sat in the sun. This was not expected, but it was clear from every moment at their restaurant that their staff is committed to treating their guests with generosity.More

If you want to feel truly Italian atmosphere & generosity, if you want to feel wholeheartedly welcome and if you want to taste homemade food and delightful wine - this is the best choice in Rome. The owners bend over backwards to satisfy their guests....Every single waiter is helpful and very kind. It is the place where you will want to came back over and over again!!!
