It is very close to Trevi Fountain but hard to find.
Please spend a few minutes to find this restaurant, i guarantee you that you will enjoy your food and pay normal relatively to other restaurant.

Yes, food is perfect and costs are normal, but these are only to have a delicious meal, which still can be found in different restaurant in Rome with costs a little bit more.

But if you are tired and need to talk and have a fantastic meal with laughing and getting relaxed, it is the only address to go.

Find the small tiny guy whose name is Simone and looks like a Jew.

He will definitely help you to find the correct food to enjoy your meal which you have probably never tasted before in your life.

This is the main reason we went twice to try other foods in the menu. As i am a traditional guy i ate the same pizza which name is di mare.

I suggest you to eat pizza and of course to try pastas.

By the way be careful with your weight beacuse even you are completely full and enjoyed your course, your brain want you to eat more.

We were approached by someone near the Trevi Fountain with a lunch special flyer. Having been ripped off near the Vatican with a similair offer we were sceptical, considering the restaurant is tucked away down a side street, although we were so hungry we decided to give it a go. Our waiter (Simone) spoke good English and assured us that we would pay the price listed on the menu, with no hidden charges, so we decided to take the plunge. Thankfully we did as from the moment we sat down to when we left, Simone looked after so well. He told us tht he had worked at Strada in Spitalfields, so had an appreciation of our expectations, and promised us that the food was excellent. I had the lasange based on his recommendation, and it was excellent, and had extra ingredients, which you would not expect, which gave a different taste, in an very good way. All in all one of the best meals we had in Rome, and Simone was first class in looking after us. You must try this restaurant of you get the chance!

The restaurant is just off the main area of the Trevi Fountain located up a small alley way on the corner of the church. This restaurant is a must go to!!!!!
Good food, value for money and most of all friendly, helpful knowledgable staff.
