This is a classic Roman restaurant, serving traditional Roman fare; though polite and friendly, not pandering to tourists. They are not going to change the style of cooking or serving to please the crowds. Though always busy, they never seem stressed or hassled, and always have time for a chat.
Expect simple, delicious Roman dishes,(especially fish) and a lively Italian atmosphere.
I have never seen a menu here, I just take the advice of the server, (usually the owner or his son) who tell me what they made that day, and trust them to guide me to the right combination of first and second plate.
Hard to pass up a Roman artichoke as a side dish and some lemoncello after dinner.
You have to book! Menu changes every day. cash only, closed Mondays.
About 40 euro per person with wine.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Rome - affordable, delicious and wonderful service. Tonight I had a very disappointing meal. The cacio e pepe had almost no cheese and all the prices had been significantly increased. This restaurant used to be a gem and now it's a bit ordinary.. hopefully they were just having an off night!!

We booked a table here at the recommendation of a friend. They have sittings at 8 and 10 PM. Cash only. We found the menu to be uninspiring - very standard fare, available at most Italian restaurants in the U.S. They have fish/seafood only on Friday. The place is not fine dining - its more like an informal neighborhood place. No outdoor seating. The food itself was fine, if a bit bland, and the house white wine was good. The prices were quite reasonable. But with so many choices in Rome, we would not recommend this restaurant.

This tiny restaurant near the Parliament is authentic, friendly and delicious. We had dinner here after a long journey to Rome and were made to feel comfortable immediately by the very friendly waiter. The food is very authentic and delicious and not at all pretentious. We would definitely come back again and this was one of our favorite meals in Rome.
