We went for dinner at this restaurant there was certain waiter who I think was in charge explaining the menu to each table as he came around. The way he described the food made us want everything however we went for his recommendation. I had the truffle pasta which was the best pasta I have ever had. We came to... More

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere with very friendly and helpful staff. The food is excellent though portions are a little small for the price. Make sure you book a table

Our innkeeper recommended this place for our last night in Rome. It's so popular that by the time he called to make a reservation for us in the afternoon, it was booked all the way to 10pm. I'm glad we chose to eat a little later that night! Everything about this restaurant is fantastic, and it's easy to see why... More

Excellent, traditional food served in a friendly, family-run restaurant. It is a little hard to find, down a narrow street, but well worth the effort. Highly recommended. You should reserve a table in advance. I don't think they do this by email (at least they didn't when I tried), so reserve by phone.

Went to this place twice during our trip, as the food and service was so good. The pastas are excellent and everything else we tried. I can especially recommend their melanzane parmigiana, that is not on the menu. Excellent English spoken by the owners (I guess). Reservations essential!

This restaurant is really great.It's near Colosseum but away from the tourist area. You have to search through the narrow to find but worth the trouble. We eat Carbonara and Nioki and was really delicious. Don't make the mistake to go thereit between 3 - 7 it is closed!!! And make a reservation if you wanna eat at your time!!!... More

We loved the atmosphere of this vibrant restaurant in Monti. The pasta was all delicious- and we enjoyed sharing our meals. While the service was personable, our table was not available until 20 minutes after our booking, which was a little disappointing. Otherwise, great place.
