Up the road from Barberini Square is a wonderful family run restaurant which serves the most amazing food. The owner and his wife are assisted by 2 waiters who share their enthusiasm for food and good service.
The small restaurant has 4 tables for outdoor dinning. and about 25 tables inside. The lunch crowd consisted of local businessmen and the evening crowd consisted of locals who knew exactly where to find the best food in the area and a few tourist. When you arrive the waiter brings you a bread basket and a plate of a variety of delicious olives. In addition to the fantastic items on the menu, in the evening they have outstanding fresh seafood specials. The spaghetti with vongole was divine. They use high quality olive oil, fresh herbs and garlic to prepare an incredible meal. Even the fresh squeezed orange juice was exceptional. The food was so good that I had lunch and dinner there for at least four days during my recent stay in Rome. Be sure to get there by 7pm when they open for dinner, for by 8:30 it starts to get crowded with the locals. After the second day, it was as if I was eating with family members. The owner and his wife greet you as if you were long lost family members and gave you suggestions to try things that were not on the menu. Try the fresh fried fish platter. The owner and his wife circulate the dinning area making sure that all their customers are satisfied with the food and service. They have fresh fruit for desert and some amazing biscotti.
