The star of this place is the food. Plentiful portions and very tasty. The staff were very helpful and accommodating although we arrived at the end of the night. Probably one of the best priced restaurants in the area, especially given the amount of awards it has received.

The restaurant feels like whay you would hope to find in this area: large tables, with plenty of space, Roman feel, local people. We had great nappetizers: fresh seasonal funghi, wonderful mozzarella di buffala, good local Lazio red wine. The meats were somewhat disappointing: roast maialino and agnello were Ok but not outstanding. Good service, but not memorable. Overall, we... More

This was our last restaurant after 2 weeks in Italy. This place is fantastic. It was recommend by our hotel ( tenuta cusmano, great place). Even if after 2 weeks of restaurants you're usually more demanding, this place is really great. The service was effective, charming and quick. Advise were great, the atmosphere of this place is fantastic.

The last evening of our Italian holidays we dined at this restaurant, recommended by our hotel. The pasta was amongst the best we'd had, and the deserts were beautiful. I loved the big open windows and relaxed atmosphere.
