Visited here in October with three friends. It was full of locals so we thought it would be good to try, they provided us with an English menu. The waitress couldn't speak any English (not complaining about that, we were in her country after all!) however, we pointed to items on the menu to order and the waitress did not... More

Eten on a few occasions in this restaurant. Always good but this time the quality was poor and the service indifferent. Steak dish was not acceptable. If I had not eten in this restaurant before it would now be on my never to goto again list.

We ate here in November, 2016. We shared a primi and each had a secondi. The house wine at five euros for a half carafe was an excellent choice. However, the beef dish that we had for the secondi was hard going and hard to chew. The service was good. The entrance is down a side street and is hard... More

We had lunch at this restaurant and were not disappointed. Huge portions of pasta dishes accompanied by generous glasses of the white wine of the house. The wine was good and very cheap by the glass (compared to Rome, at least). This restaurant was worth the travel from Rome👍

We were recommended this place by a local. The food was fantastic. The deco was traditional. Very good quality food at very reasonable prices.

Lovely restaurant, great food and service. The portions are large. Very little English spoken but between the little Italian we had picked up, a small bit of effort and the willingness of the staff we ordered a lovely meal. The house wine is very good and it's worth finishing with an espresso if only for the wonderful plate of biscuits.... More

No one speak one word of English, (even the word 'fish') the menu is all in Italian... The bottle of red wine tastes like vinegar that you buy from the cheap supermarket for cooking ONLY! And the food....God, I haven't had that kind of bad food in my life! We ordered one chicken dish and one veal, it came out... More

We did not know of this restaurant but passed by and it looked good. We ate inside - tables were very spread out and we did not feel crowded. We just had a light lunch - pasta and some house wine but were treated well. Our pasta was delicious - I had carbonara and my partner had fettucine with porcini... More
