“Fun wine bar with live music”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Keen on organic and natural wines? Go here. The passionate and friendly owner has an excellent range of - sometimes hardly heard of - wines, mainly coming from Italy. Some older vintages too which certainly adds value, we had an 08 Maremma for just €25 per bottle, excellent choice and peaking now. There was a guy playing some guitar music, the atmosphere was loose, cosy and the bowl of zuppa good. Who says soup does not go with wine? Best wine bar visited in Rome together with Il Goccetto.

“Nice wine and friendly host”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Stumbled upon this little wine bar after visiting the Colosseum. They have a good selection of reasonable priced wine by the glass, and an extensive range of other Italian wines by the bottle. Friendly owner who will pause to have a chat with you.

“Good wine and a nice menu”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

The host is a very pleasant man who is very excited to tell you about his wine and his food. I had a very enjoyable dinner my last night in Rome and this place far outshined the others in the touristy area where it is located.

“Friendly and Authentic”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Great little wine bar with friendly host, If you enjoy wine, chat with Simone who will provide you authentic selections at reasonable prices. Background music, some vinyl albums, is relaxing. Would love to be there when live music is playing on the on the baby grand piano.

Looking forward to my next trip to Rome.

“best place for great wines”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Simone is serving the best organic wines you can think of and is a great host too. They also serve some great Italian standards like the Melanzano di Parmigianna.
