“Good food without a smile”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

On the high recommendation we arrived at the restaurant and were offered seating extremely close to the table next to us. We decided to go inside where we were seated once again in very close proximity to other diners so if you like your privacy, this is not the place for you. Food was good, service was adequate but not more. Prices were reasonable, but one can do better in this price range.

“Lucky find”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We stumbled upon this little restaurant while wandering around our hotel. What a lucky find! The seafood was excellent and very fresh. We went there twice and on the second trip, I had their daily special, a raw seafood plate of 4 different types of prawns and shrimp. The seafood was fresh and sweet. Not to is miss their deconstructed tiramisu. The service was friendly and helpful. We weren't organized enough to book in advance, which you must do to sit outside, but it was very comfortable inside even though we were there in the midst of a heat wave. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone going to Rome.

“One person's service may ruin a lot...”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Evening time, but fortunately found a small place outside since we were pretty early for dinner time (actually some places were already reserved).
Food was nice, even good, but not all excellent as one would expect from TA's tips; not cheap, but i would not say that prices were too high (actually we did not have wine and/or beer because, those seemed too expensive). We had different kind of starters, I had a nice pasta of the day with clams, my husband a nice abbacchio.
Our waiter was very nice and professional, he seemed even not Italian, but spoke very well!
But another one, for sure Italian, who, a couple of times, brought us by chance ordered food, seemed and acted very rudely: used almost to "throw" our dishes on the table.. I'd really fire him, if I were the owner... there are so many good waiters without a job in Italy!!!
One like him ruins all the poetry of that nice place, located on a spot of via Sardegna, that is very calm and silent. So I cannot give excellence, since a nervous person like him can ruin you the whole evening :-(((

“excellent food, reasonable prices”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Food was very tasty and delicate, well served and most of all (in an era of financial crisis) prices were unexpectedly reasonable. Congratulations to the owner/manager.

“A Good FInd”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We had spent the morning in the Villa Borghesi garden and museum and wondered outside the walls to find ai Fienaroli on a quiet side street. The service and food were very good. This is a very nice, typical Roman restaurant that treats tourists well, but is not a "tourist restaurant." Highly recommended.
