“family style eating in a unique setting”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

In the Trastevere area of Rome we were taken to this Tavern by locals. The setting is very rustic Italian with long tables (or some smaller ones) that made for interesting conversation with other patrons. Very lively atmosphere--busy! The service was friendly and helpful, the food very good with a large variety of items. Pizza ranged from E10 to E15. Other entrees E12 to E16. It was a very fun dinning experience and the area is great to explore.

“Steaks, and an atmosphere that takes you back to the Empire.”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

This is a steak house restaurant with a huge grill in the centre and completely overworked but happy staff racing about all night long. Really great atmosphere and excellent food that won't break the bank. I don't know how old it is but I saw a picture of Julius Caesar at the opening night on the wall. Enjoy.

Good food in a incredible building. You feel like you are in a time machine.
The staff is not as friendly and attentious as they could be. Overall is good.

“Excellent atmosphere and food”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

It is my preferred restaurant in Rome downtown. Walking distance from Tiberina island on Tever river.
Courses i really recommend, any type of Pizza as well as meat. This restaurant doesn't serve first courses (ie. pasta).
Price is in the average, not cheap but not even too expensive for what you get.
