Went here for dinner two times. First time we had pizzas, which were very good and reasonably priced.
A few days later we tried the pasta. Both dishes were dry, the meat lacked taste and the carbonara sauce had apparently been boiled so that the pasta looked covered in bits of scrambled egg.
The service was was attentive, verging on making us feel rushed trough our meal.

We came to this restaurant in our first day in Rome and we stayed there for another two days' dinner. Felt like at home. We really enjoyed the food. The vegetable soup was delicious! I would also especially mention pizza margherita (never imagined it could be so tasty) and tiramisu - really worth trying! Didn't like fresh vegetable salad - too much carrot. The waiters not always pay enough attention, but they are good and pleasant guys, and it wasn't crucial for me. It's Italy, so just relax and enjoy! Not the place to go from another part of the city, but if you are nearby, definitely drop in for a quality meals and authentic experience.

Decided to wander and check things out around our Hotel. Stopping and looking at menus. Sat inside because tables outside were full. Pleasant surprise when the food started arriving. Very good service, great food, and nice atmosphere. Sat by the window and had a street view. There was a group of kids eating and singing acapella to add to our experience. If you are by the Termini area, be sure to try this jewel of a ristorante.

We went here for dinner one night and were very pleased. We ordered a caprese salad, bruchetta and pizza, all of which were excellent. The food was reasonably priced and service was good, this definitely looks like a place where locals go ( it gets very busy at dinner! ). We will be repeat customers next time in Rome.

Having walked many many miles around Rome my husband and I were looking for a restaurant nearer to our hotel (Morgana) for an evening.Having walked past a couple of other places we stumbled across this restaurant, which was busy with people outside and seemed to have a good atmosphere. We were quickly seated outside and the waitress was happy to seat us at our preferred choice of table. The menu is very reasonably priced and the main waiter that served us was very attentive, despite covering most of the tables outside. I had brushcetta al pomodoro to start, followed by capricciosa pizza. Both were very good. My husband had cannelloni and this was also very good.The house wine was fine and cheap. Due to the way the tables are set up, our food was served by passing it over the couple next to us, but this didnt bother us at all and makes you bond with the other customers! This was suprisingly one of the best meal experiences during our trip to Rome and even better as my poor feet were saved a long walk afterwards. A very enjoyable, inexpensive meal, with friendly and attentive staff.
