We were introduced to this restaurant by the Italian owner of a B&B just around the corner. We thought that perhaps she was just recommending it because it was a neighbor -- but later decided it really was a great place, with outstanding food (at least the dishes we tried). Although there are many similar restaurants in the neighborhood, we found its food better, and ended up returning. Also, we thought the prices were very fair, less than some others nearby, and no cover charge. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We noticed several people (locals) waiting to get a table later in the evening -- which indicated that we weren't the only ones to be aware of the good food!!

Frankly, we only had different types of Pizza, salad caprese, and pasta with gorgonzola, but all were excellent. Pizza crust was crisp on the bottom (at other restaurants was sometimes a little more heavy and doughy). Loved the cheese (buffalina (sp?) with cherry tomatoes was delicious).

I was in Rome for a month in November -12 and kept coming back to this restaurant. Fresh mushrooms & pasta, veggie Pizza and their creme brulee was my favorites.

Fabulous! Order the Penne al Arabiatta or the Tonnarelli cacio y pepe, these are huge for first courses and it was near to Piazza Navona and the great ice cream of Giolitti! I was anxious about this before we went but now on reflection it was great!!

We ate here twice as the food was delicious and it was near our hotel. Clean toilets too which is always a good thing!

We were walking in the city center and walked by the Corallo restaurant and decided to stop for dinner. We set inside the main area and ordered pizza and pasta. Service is friendly and fast but both pastas were nothing memorable. The tagliolini pasta with truffle were barely tasteful and the penne arrabbiata were barely spicy. The tomato sauce on the other hand had a great taste. Pizzas looked good and my friends who ordered them said it was pretty ok. Prices are reasonable and location is good. If you feel like having pizza I would go back there otherwise there are many other places in the center where to have better pasta.
