“Good, unpretentious Roman & Tuscan food”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

I visited here as I was staying in the Ateneo Garden Palace opposite and wanted somewhere to get a quick evening meal. I was more than pleased with my choice. I had two very typical Roman dishes both of which were just as one would want, without frills or pretention. Service was quick and attentive and the price was reasonable. I just had a couple of glasses of the house wine so can't comment on the wine list nor the desserts. I would return.

“Genuine Roman food and a nice service”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

This is not a fashionable restaurant in Rome, but I was so many times disappointed by old glories that I was pleased to find a place respecting the tradition of Roman cuisine. The environment is nice but not fancy. The personnel is very hospitable, in particular the gentleman in charge who is not from Rome but from Egypt. Nevertheless, he knows the local cuisine better than most romans. Basically, you must go there if you are interested in tasting Roman cuisine but want to avoid a tourist trap. If you know about Roman cuisine, try some of the classics. If you do not, ask the maître and he will very kindly and expertly advise you depending on the season and the availability of meat and seafood. The same goes for the wine: the selection is small but good
