The restaurant has a great location, and seating outside is a plus (with heaters if necessary and rain protection). The food is good and the prices are reasonable. I also noted good use of seasonal vegetables. The service is not consistent. The waiters could be more friendly which always makes the dining experience more pleasurable. (A+ for clean bathroom.)

We stayed in Hisuite apartments just 50m away and based on Tripadvisor reviews had already decided to try this restaurant. We were not disappointed. This is good, simple cooking based on fresh ingredients. The staff is attentive and friendly. The salmon and chicken, both grilled, can be recommended. We had all our meals there (except one) while we were in Rome and will be back next time too.
The only drawback are the street hawkers who will stick a mechanical monkey in your face and try to sell you one. But this is a problem all over Rome these days. With my size I just have to stand up and growl and they scatter.

My wife and I lived in Rome for four months, teaching in a semester abroad program. This was absolutely our favorite restaurant! Nothing fancy, but good, simple Roman food. We ate there 44 times (no, that is not an exaggeration - I counted the receipts on our expense account!) There are tourists there, but there are also Romans, who know good food when they try it. The owner, Paolo, is unbelievably generous, and we are always treated to prosecco, or limoncello, or some exotic dish (like nettle pasta - really!), all for free. The food is excellent, the prices are incredibly reasonable, considering you can pay three times more in tourist restaurants nearby. Not sure what the bad reviews are all about, but we found this place to be consistently good.
