Excellent restaurant with most of the traditional Roman dishies. Great food and great service. Although the Roman wine served by the glass was not great it must be accordin to my taste.

Traditional Roman cuisine prepared impeccably well. I went for dinner and returned for lunch the next day. Both times, I could not resist the Tortino di alici fresche fritte, pomodoro, aglio e prezzemolo (‘Pie’ of fresh anchovies fried and cooked with tomatoe, garlic and parsley);...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a

throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
