“Ravioli & Panna cotta to die for!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We ate here twice and everything was delicious! Service was slow but polite. The ravioli, vegetarian lasagne and tiramisu and panna cotta were absolutely fan-tas-tic!

“Great comfort italian food”
Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for another italian restaurant in the vicinity but it was closed so we came here instead. It was surprisingly good. We were probably the only tourists in the late afternoon when everyone else was a local, which i assume is evidence of its authencity.

Try the fusilli with capers olives and cod fish. Flavor bomb!

“Nothing special, but nice enough”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The main reason we ate here was that it was right next door to our B&B (Domus Diana) but also that when Machiavelli's Club had no spaces the owner recommended here as an alternative with 'a good dessert selection'.

It was reasonably priced and the service was efficient. We were sat outside on the street so I can't comment on the interior.

We had Italian platter (mixed cured meats) so can't really go wrong, it came with a lovely pickled artichoke to start and lamb in garlic dressing & beef in garlic dressing for our mains. Note you have to order a side as it is only meat you get - no veg/potatoes etc. We had chicory in chilli dressing as a side, the food was OK.

For dessert they'd run out of fruit salad so I just had melon (three slices, for about 4EUR which was poor value) and my partner Mille-Feuille which was edible. Good price on the wine with a bottle for around 7EUR.

The place didn't blow us away but we didn't really expect it to. It was handy distance from the B&B and everything was edible, but not so memorable.

“Almost perfect food, staff needs savoir vivre training...”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We went to Trattoria Morgana while returning exhausted to our appartment after a whole day of sight-seeing in Rome.
We decided to go there, because it was 20 metres from our appartment and it looked like one of those local, nice trattorias one sees while walking through non-touristic places in Rome.
At first-the interior....quite normal, nothing special, clean, one of the waiters welcomed us and gave us menus.
Then, we waited 15 minutes for our order to be taken. It didn't bother us, we had time, but during this time, there was only one sympathetic waiter serving the whole place.
We received our meals, fresh insalata mista with delicious tomatoes, delicious home made pasta with wonderful, carrot-broth-veal-tomato tasting ragu sauce, very good wine...everything was more than fine until we payed the bill and left the tip...
Then, the second, younger waiter came to us and told us to leave the table and go finish our wine outside, because of a reservation waiting for our table. It wasn't there when we arrived, noboty told us about it...it would be acceptable if someone asked us politely to change the place for outside, we wouldn't mind...but something like this happened to us for the first time ever, not to mention, that we have eaten in many busier restaurants before, never being told to leave.
That kind of behaviour is totally unacceptable and it would be a shame for any good restaurant.

That's why, the rating is poor, although the food was very nice.

“Comfort italian food”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

After a long day coming from Civitavecchia from a 12 days cruise we arrived to Rome starving. We have hired a driver and after checking in our hotel he suggested Trattoria Morgana. What a pleasant surprise. we let they bring what the thought was best and started with the best pasta fagioli I have ever tasted,food was great and very reasonably priced. Going back our next time in Rome.
