“Good Italian Food with a good Vibe”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

We're Italians from Rome (know our way around here :() , but writing in English for helping tourists finding the really good places in Rome. We went there rather spontaneous during a stroll in the old town. While looking at the menu outside we were already greeted by a very friendly and energetic staff member. Once in, we were immediately taken care of in a very professional, yet funny and welcoming manner. We were not that hungry, and ordered only some simple stuff (gnocchi and a mix of vegetables plus a salad). Prices are very decent for what you get. We were very happy to see that everything which was brought was very fresh and nicely arranged. Housewine was also quite good (confirmed by my wife, a sommelier to be). In between had a good and entertaining chat with both the owners - these guys don't take themselves too serious, but they are serious of their guests having a good time. We'll go there again and have a big dinner with our roman friends and taste their roman specialties (saw porchetta on the menu).

“Amazing food and very friendly service”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Because of the high rating in Tripadvisor we decided to go here on a friday evening. Because we didn't make a reservation and arrived about 21:00 the place was completely full.. But that wasn't a problem because we could wait outside and were served a wine and some snacks.. Within 5 minutes we could take our places and the fun began! The service was so friendly! We decided to go for a surprise meal and that wasn't a wrong choice. After a plate full of antipasta a (how should we call it....) very surprising pasta meal was served! So nice and probably not the thing we normally ordered.. ;-) Than some lamb and two excellent deserts!

Dinner was great and this place definitely deserves 5 stars! Go for it when you are in Rome!

“It was OK ”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Friendly service (albeit a bit slow) and nice enough food. I probably wouldn't go back as the food was not as good as other restaurants I tried in Rome.. but a good option if you happen to be nearby.

“Great food. Amazing Tiramisu”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Dinner was great. Stands up to the high rating on tripadvisor. Nothing fancy just good food and a casual dinner. The tiramisu is amazing

“Perfecto!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

An incredible place to eat! Really friendly staff, we were looking for a place to go for a while and went for this one and were so glad that we did! The food was excellent and gave a fine example of Italian cuisine without being at all pretentious or expensive. Definitely a place I would return to!
