“Good local place”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Another reliable restaurant in the 10-15 minute walk zone from the Roma Cavlieri. Don't expect haute cuisine but the food is good. This is a local pizzeria with good pizzas (loved the radiccio and gorgonzola) and pastas. My meat-eating friends said that the meat was Ok too. Interesting range of fried-stuff as starters. People very friendly with enough English to make it do-able if you have little or no Italian. House wine very drinkable. We went twice.

“Can' t get better than this”
Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

Second visit tonight. Outstanding service and welcome to non-italian speakers armed with phrase book! Full to bursting with local people. Really buzzing but relaxed atmoshere. Basic decor but brilliant food. Pizzas yesterday unbeliveable. Very very good value and as I am allergic to cheese, fantastic flavours. Steak and pasta tonight, (i lost, fillet steak at 17 euros stunning). Waiter had a few words of english, host fluent. Offered ( we refused) an extra dessert free, accepted limonchellos, please try the creme caramel, best I have tried. Excellent coffee. Finally, the bruschetta with garlic is positivley stunning. Two meals, prosecco, beer and water around 60 euros. Dont miss this. We will return!

“Worth a trek”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Good traditional cuisine and a vegetarian/vegan menu too. It was packed out every time we visited and it would be worth booking in advance if you're not in the area. Proper pizza from an old fashioned oven with lots of choice of toppings, good affordable wine, friendly service.

“Great pizza”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Ordered a pizza to go from Il Peperoncino Dispettoso during our stay at the Rome Cavalieri hotel. It's about 3/4 mile from the hotel and it wasn't cheap, but the pizza was worth the walk. Pizza was baked in their wood-burning oven (I believe), and it was quite delicious. Servers spoke English but were able to understand my attempt to order in Italian!
