“Awesome service, atmosphere and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

We stumbled across this place on our last night in Rome, and it turned out to be a perfect way to end our trip! Some of the best service that we've had, and smiling staff ready to help with everything. The family is clearly in the business to enjoy it, and put the same amount of love into their food and service. We had beautiful fish and ravioli, and the house wine is an excellent investment.

“Good location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

The location is excellent nearby the forum Romanum and other major Roman attractions. We had pasta here which was good. Prices were reasonable.

“No service at all”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

The staff managed to squeeze us in to a packed restsurant. After a couple of minutes we realised that of the maybe 30 people in the restaurant, not a single person gad any food. Everyone was just sat waiting. That was our que to leave. I suspected that everyone else needed to be served before us. I suspect the previous review about great food and poor service is accurate. However i wasnt willing to sit for hours waiting for food ro find out how good it was.

“Friendly staff and close to main sights”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

After touring museums in the morning we wanted something good not tourist and close. I love my TA app for the iPhone that finds places for me. This was the closest place to where we were. We had walked by the stairs about half a dozen times while in Rome but never noticed the place.

We arrived for a late lunch. We decided to make it an Italian lunch and it was wonderful. Everything was delicious. The service was wonderful. They speak English and have English menus.

When back in Rome we will more than likely stop by and eat again. The seafood spaghetti was some of the best we had while in Italy for two weeks.

We were actually satisfied with the quality food and warm atmosphere.
Especially the taste of pasta is exceptionally good. I think it is worth visiting.
