The server gave us only two options for pasta while for the native people he offered them other options of dishes including salads and breads as couvert.The pasta was very undercooked. The place was dirty, there is no menu and prices. I definitely do not recommend this place where the tourist is not respected.

This restaurant was recommended by an Italian colleague in the UK. Reviews in tripadvisor seemed to backup the recommendation - based on our experience they are inaccurate. True its full of locals - there was no visible menu and we were naive in thinking that from the simplicity of the decor and very very very basic nature of the service that the prices were low. We paid over 35 EUROS for four plates of very simple pasta and a bottle of water. I suspect that the locals were not paying the same. Food was nothing special and we left feeling ripped off and angry. We won't be returning and once Ive finished writting this I'm wiping it from my memory else it will spoil our wonderful trip to Rome.
We were in search of authenticity, simplicity and good value but we didnt find it here. We did find it elsewhere.

Recommended by locals as a hidden, delicious 'real' Roman cuisine and the reviews are very good here on TripAdvisor. What a disappointment! Atmosphere? None. Gorgeous Trattoria? Spartan. Excellent service? No. Good food? Worst meal of our 2 weeks. The hype seemed totally incorrect. We were offered two types of spaghetti as the only appetizer or primi piatti (plentiful but tasteless). For entree, the server gave us a long menu and pointed to 5 items available. That's a fine number of selections if they are good! The wine (offered from a barrel in the back) was inexpensive but also disappointing. Overall price was reasonable (85 Euro for 4 meals) but value was poor. This was between Christmas and New Years so perhaps the owner, chef, food purchaser and wait-staff were all on vacation!?!?

This was exactly what we pictured when going to Rome. The menu is spoken (almost no english) and the meals, mostly 1st and 2nd courses (pasta and meats) were simple yet fantastic. It's a nice small place filled with mostly locals. Our favorite meal of Rome which says a lot
