“Where locals go for business”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

This was another restaurant recomennded by out hotel. It is small and intimate. There are a lot of Roman business people dining here for dinner. Again, not a tourist style restaurant. Not a bad item on the menu. The pastas simple and fresh. The meat dishes generous. When they found out they made an error in out bill, they gave us a free round of drinks for the inconvenience. That is what I call service and a nice way to want to be a repeat customer.

“Wow”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Great - scenic view out of a postcard and a fantastic meal to match. Every time I come to Rome, I am impressed by a restaurant. There are so many in the city it's hard to choose which one is the best however this definitely tops one of my most memorable meals.

“Lovely place for romantic dinner”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

We went for my birthday dinner. Lovely balance of starched table cloths & friendly service.
Great antipasti with artichokes served in a great way. Gnocchi was super. My pasta super & a great cheese board for €15 meant we took back some for breakfast. Great wine list to encourage you to try something else: we did.

“Traditional Roman at its very best!”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Don't be fooled by the fact that this is a block away from the Pantheon where there are loads of tourist-attracting restaurants.

Tucked in a little Piazza this is a perfect restaurant in all aspects. The pasta was exquisite the service was outstanding and the environment made you feel at home but absolutely best in class.

No snob just quality. The artichokes a la Romana are the best I have ever experienced.

Truly exceptional. This is one of those extremely rare moments I have given a restaurant 5 out of 5.
