Nice atmosphere. We had octopus carpaccio with strawberries and stuffed warm rolls of ricotta cheese for starters . Our main dishes were Maccheroncini with tomato, bacon and ewe's cheese and Spaghetti with parmigiano, ewe's cheese, pepper and crisp zucchini. All of them indifferent. Since we visited Rome we decided to taste tiramisu. We did not like it. It was like a sweet soup.The only thing we really enjoyed was the wine. An expensive dinner that did not meet our expectations.

Quaint little place with great meatballs and very accommodating staff. But the pasta was not that great.

People treat you very well and bring you anything you want, even if it is not on their menu. And, what is the best, everything is delicious. They made us a salad the way we wanted to eat and everything was delicious. The pasta is incredible too. And the piazza is very charming. Srongly recommended.

The restaurant is right accross the beautiful facade of La Maddalena but unless you sit outside this is irrelevent. The general ambiance is casual chic and cozy. Our dinner started with a very tasty plate of veal cheeks cooked to perfection. Yet other dishes we ordered were quite plain, almost tasteless, with no special touch: Lamb shank, grilled fettucini, spagetti with fish eggs and gnocci.
Presentation of plates are much nicer compared to other restaurants: Dishes are nicely set on various tasteful white porcelain. The service is typical Italian style - don't expect much of it.
Finally the bill: 5 entrees, 2 desserts, 1 bottle of wine, 1 bottle of sparkling water, no coffee: 250 euros.
It was OK but we are not going to miss it...

My wife and I enjoyed a four-course lunch here and every dish that we had was fantastic! The service was excellent and location was ideal for people-watching. I will definitely return here if I am ever in Rome again.
