This was a pleasant meal, particularly for those of us who wanted the white and black truffles. The staff are very keen to please, and the restaurant is charming in a quite back street, close to the Spanish steps. There were a couple of the group who went for not truffled fare- notably lobster linguini- who were searching hard for the lobster. The management did respond in fairness, but this was good, not great.

Fantastic truffle menu, excellent food and service. The black truffle meatballs are to die for. When I mentioned it was my husband's birthday, the owner brought over prosecco and drank a toast with us, then they brought him a lovely little cake, (Cassata Siciliana.) I will definitely return whenever I am in Rome. Great place.

We had friends in Rome for the day, and met them for lunch here.

What a shame. I had high hopes for a restaurant rated so highly on TA and in such a nice location.

The restaurant is tiny, which sometimes can make a place feel welcoming, but here we just felt overcrowded and stuffy.

The service was nothing special and at times seemed like we were bothering our server.

The food was...clearly for tourists. I was excited to have a nice pasta on a cold day, but it was really a letdown. Not horrible, but not anything special. Everyone said pretty much the same thing about heir meals.

WE had a nice lunch with friends, but the bill was way too high for what they offer.

Won't be back.
