“Surprisingly good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

This place is surprisingly good, despite the fact that it doesn't look great from the outside the food makes up for it. The minestra di ceci I had was really good, despite the cacio e pepe was extremely watery. It certainly fares better than many other places in trastevere. My advice would be to ask the waiters to reccomend to you what is fresh.

“No tourist trap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Found this on our way to the Coliseum. Very happy we did. The best carpaccio ever. We enjoyed watching the Italian children sharing a family meal. Couples having a romantic lunch as well. We really liked this typically Roman restaurant. Two courses and wine for two forty euro. Try it. We really liked it.

“Best meal in Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

This was a great find off the beaten path. The lasagne, pastas and wine selection were great and very well priced. Good, attentive staff and nice atmosphere.

“Delightful dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

After a disasterous dining experience on our first night in Rome, hotel staff recommended Mario's. What a delight! Staff were attentive, humourous and knowledgable. Service was great and food delicious. Highly recommend it
