“Quiet, friendly and delicious”
Reviewed October 19, 2011

We ate at this unpretentious vineria 3 times during our visit to Rome. Initially, because it was close to our hotel and seemed reasonably priced; but we returned because the food was so good and the staff so quietly welcoming and helpful.

It is located not far from the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore and the rail teminus. It has indoor and a few outdoor tables, and as the temperatures were well into the 30s at the time - surprisingly enough for late September - we dined outside. (It doesn't have/didn't use any air conditioning) The street was not busy in the evening so there was no continous traffic to disturb our meal, and the road looked down towards the city centre providing a wonderful sunset and night-sky-scape.

The food was fairly simple, but fresh and delicious. My favourites were the pear and cheese salad and the mushroom lasagne, which were both fresh-tasting and flavoursome, and the desserts matched up to that high standard, including the wonderful ice-creams. The other items on the menu looked equally enticing, and I only wish we had had more opportunity to try them all.

As befits a vineria, there was a large choice of wine, but we stuck to the house red and white, both of which were very good indeed.

In all, a lovely find, which I would recommend to anyone who wants a simple and, for Rome, comparatively inexpensive meal slightly off the beaten track.
