Eccentric, tiny bar/restaurant/wine shop 1 min walk from Trevi fountain.
Inexpensive, good wines and fantastic cured hams etc.
The cold meat and vegetable boards are a picture and delicious.

Owned by a half English half Italian lady this unique little restaurant has only been open for a matter of weeks. I am so pleased we fell upon this place. We were only in Italy for four nights and we ate here twice!

There are only about twenty covers, some of these are standing! The food is lovely, the wine delightful and the service welcoming.

The decoration is fascinating, rustic, bohemian,off the wall. The wines selection is amazing, just help yourself from the display and the staff will open it for you.

A huge mixed plate (log) for two (main course) was 20 euros. Great value.

Went here on our 1st night, as had read the reviews on T/A. It is not a restaurant as such, but a wine bar that serves cold cuts, and some of the best cold cuts of hams and cheese I've had. the wine and beer prices are the best we came across, and at 5 Euros for a wooden board of cold meats and cheese per person you will not get better.

It is very small,but I went there every day, just for a beer or glass of wine ( and a little snackette ) when the wife was having a siesta after doing the tourist bit.

The staff are great and friendly.

we met some wasps supporters and a couple from Colchester, all spontaneous, but we had a great night. I was the one who thought he had his camera dipped from its case, only to find it in his pocket 15 minutes later ( what a Idiot ).
I recommend this venue, and should i return to Rome, it will be on my list.

They have no restaurant license so you got to serve yourself, and the place is tiny. Food is great and prices are acceptable, but the main reasons to come here are:
- an atmosphere, friendly by default and really relaxing, extremely welcoming, social and easy-going staff
- and WHAT an interior! God, I loved that place right from the start! Genuine design

Resolution: one of the favorite places to stop for a snack and a wine, the only drawback might be the lack of space to sit down, place is really tight, but take-away is always an option

Located very close to the Trevi fountain is this gem of a place. We had a superb board of mixed meats & cheese for four at 10 euro a head. House white was very good at 9 euro a bottle. Great atmosphere, friendly staff.
Did not see a wine list, initially, but just ask. The bottles are on the wall, priced.
You pay 20 - 30 euro for a bottle of basic Friscatti in lots of the bars, here you start at 9 Euro & 25Euro buys you a great bottle.
The place is not that big, so with all the rave reviews you will struggle to get in.
Our only downside on the place was we found it on our last day!
