Saturday evening in Trastevere and the restaurants get busy. We chanced on this place after a couple of others had turned us away, not having booked. The surroundings are really lovely, with torches flickering in the ancient building. The menu was in the form of a rolled up scroll which kind-of shouts "tourist trap" although there did seem to be lots of Italians there. The service was friendly although once we had ordered and received our food they did forget us - no one came to offer desserts or coffee. We would have had pasta, but when we looked at the menu, there was no pasta! (Note to self - check the menu before sitting down!) The pizza was good and the grilled meat was OK and lots of it. It was a bit pricy, but I didn't feel 'ripped-off' as the surroundings were so nice.
The restaurant opposite had a band and singer doing Italian numbers, and they had a bit of entertaining schtick involving an old guy who leaned out of an upstairs window and told them to shut-up.
There are probably better restaurants than this in the area, but it would be hard to beat the atmosphere.
