We walked into this restaurant near the Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica looking for a quick lunch. The people were very accommodating of our special requests- 2 kid specific non-spicy dishes, split between our two kids.
Veg soup was good and hearty - especially after days of cheesy dishes and pizzas - and penne arrabiata was tasty and cooked just right.
For dessert, we ordered tiramisu and it was so good we ordered seconds!!
Total was about 50 euros - which we felt was good for the amount of food and service, given that we paid much more for a lot less at other places.
Definitely recommend.

Had a nice lunch today at La Mela D'Oro - recommended to us by our hotel concierge. We had the antipasto with assorted thin sliced meats and mozzarella, small bottle of chianti, beer, water, and a pizza for total bill of €37, including 2 x €1 coperto. The waitress was friendly and attentive and even ran out once to shoo away a beggar around the outdoor tables. Food was very good.

I would recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner.

The appearance of this small restaurant is not overwhelming. Anyway, it has been recommended by the hotel's comcierge as we told him we were looking for something to eat closeby. We confirm, good quality food at reasonable prices.

We found this place while walking around in Rome. The food is great, very reasonable priced and great service, although the servers may speak limited English. What they lack in language, they exceed on friendless. This is not very sophisticated restaurant, so the meals are simple but out of this world. You can see locals eat there so that gives you an indication of the quality and authenticity of the Italian food served here. It ended being our restaurant of choice for almost every day of our trip.

The food wasn't too bad, but when we mentioned some very stale tasting San Daniele ham, we had an argument on our hands and an unfriendly attitude. Wouldn't go there again - there are better options in the streets around.
