“Il Fico accross the street is much nicer”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We traveled to Rome for a quick vacation with my wife. We ate at different places each day. This one wasn't our favourite. We met waiters more interested in eachother (jokes on tourists) then in providing proper service. The food was just ok. For us Il Fico just accross the street was much better. Their home made Ravioli was a masterpiece.

This Taverna is just ok. Spend your time and money in better places.

“Ok restaurants”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

This was an ok restaurant near the Termini station.

Pizzas were around 8-10 euros, you could also buy pasta and other things as well.

There were also menus available in this taverna.

“traditional good italian food”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

This reataurant is very close to the entrance of statione Termini, at th beginning of via Milazzo, a few steps from via Marsala. We had dinner with just local, or italian speaking other customers, the restaurant seens not to be a touristic trap.
Thy served true italian food, good pasta, and at very decent price. They had a true wooden pizza oven, we decided to return some other day to taste.
Just one waitress, but fast enough to serve in friendly fashion all the customers. They took credit cards, no problems with the bill.
I'm happy to recommend to those interested in traditional italia food intead of french cuisine...at a decent price..

“Great local wood pizza oven”
Reviewed June 22, 2011

We were staying near Termini on Via Palazzo and walked past this place when we arrived on Saturday night. There was an enormous queue of locals waiting to get a table. Always a good sign!
We returned the following night and received 2 great pizzas made in a real wood burning oven. Tasted great.
Nothing fancy, not overpriced but with good food from a little family place.
