I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor as a non-touristy option in a touristy area and was very happy with my lunch. It is on a fairly quiet side street above the Colosseum. I ate outside at one of the sidewalk tables. The prices are...excellent - my small carafe of wine was only 2.50 euro! - and along with pasta, a panna cotta, and a coffee, the check came to 23.10. I didn't order bread, and they didn't charge anything for pane or coperto. I don't think the waiters speak much English but they were incredibly friendly. The woman who took my plates away reminded me of my Sicilian grandmother encouraging me to order dessert. The pasta dish (fettuccine alla Nerone, similar to carbonara) was not the best of my trip but I would surely return for the location, service, and delicious panna cotta.More

We had lunch here. Family owned restaurant conveniently located near the Colosseum, it's a perfect place to enjoy a delicious traditional lunch after a long sightseeing. We stopped here because there seemed to be a local people, so we thought it would be good. And...it was so. Lovely restaurant with delicious food.More

Recommended for antipasti by Elizabeth Minchilli. What a great experience! Asked the server to give me the antipasto vegetariano. Got grilled peppers, onions, zucchini two ways, potato, tomato, fennel. A meal in itself. Loved it. Tomato basil spaghetti followed by Amaro for dessert. Personal service....On a street leading from the Colosseum. Watch out as there is another place with a similar name.More

We needed toilet, and we though taking a break and have a coffee somewhere. We almost sit down on the tourist traps... but they were not so nice that we kept walking to get here. The owner is amazing, chatty, he tells you stories about...customers, in our case Irish, Scottish and Spanish. You walk in and there is full of people, locals and tourists enjoying their food. >>>>> The toilet is CLEAN, yes ladies... the unbelievable in Rome! <<<<<<< And the food is traditional Italian, small familiar business and incredible. We would go back if we have a chance. We had the 1) spaghetti with porcini mushrooms and 2) artichoke. The artichoke is just beautiful and incredible flavour. Just italian cuisine. For dessert we had the tiramisu which is homemade and I would say the best we have tried so far...and there have been quite a lot of them. 10 of 10 price and quality. Bellisimo, graccie!!!More

We use this restaurant every time that we visit Rome. It’s in a great position near the Coliseum. The food is well cooked, presented and at a reasonable price. If you like your food cooked in the traditional Italian the way this is the place...for you.More

Had lunch here after a gap of many years. It is still the same, very good food. I had the Fettuccine and it was delicious. My wife had Spaghetti al Salmone and said it was the best she's had in Rome. A half litre of...wine (seems to be very difficult to get carafes of wine these days), water, coffee and a lovely atmosphere in the warm sunshine. What more could you ask for?! Grazie Mille.More

Great place with authentic and traditional Roman / Italian food. We loved the vegetarian antipasti, prosciutto e melone and the Neroni pasta dish. The Amaro served here is great. All you need. Close to Colosseum.

The bill was more then twice the price the lady told us when we sat down and from the menu. We had to argue with the man to lower his price, he even tried to put the blame on his english (which he was speaking...real fine) and on the lady that sat us at the beginning. We just travelled around Italy, we know about the coperto and everything, but this guy was just definitely trying to rip us.More

As Bighorndon says, its unlikely. They are not connected electronically to the world (or at least they don't respond). We wrote them a regular snail mail letter to secure our booking for 17 people and they answered it.
