“Nice interiors”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Today's service was very slow. Our steak never made it out from the kitchen. Carbonara pasta was very good with the crunchy bacon, tomato salad with cheese was also good. But service needs improvement.

“Amazing Food, Great Staff”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

One of the best meals I have ever had. A great respire after a busy, hot Roman Morning. It is equally busy in the evenings, everything we ordered from the charcutería for one-enough for 2 as a starter and the pasta were 5*. The Tornarelli-like a thicker spaghetti egg fresh pasta, were incredible , I ordered the Tartufo and my friend the Amatricciana. UNBELIEVABLE. Amazing selection of wines by the glass and lovely service. Strongly reccommended.

“They say in fishing that the only knowledge is local knowledge.”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

This is also true in restaurants. I am almost afraid to review "Hey, Julius, Pass Me the (olive) Oil," because I don't want all you tourists crowding out the place. It was only Romans when we went there. That is almost part of the charm. Since there is no real view in this alley-type street, you get to watch the locals instead and it is twice as charming. The wine list is massive and they know their wines. Surrender to their expertise. The swordfish carpaccio was amazing. All the pastas are among the best in Italy. The meat based menu is exceptional. For dessert, ask to try what the locals have. You will probably get the biscottini and vin santo and you will be pleasantly surprised as you try something you have never done, dipping cookies in wine.

Also, the price is right, very right. Make sure you sit outside.

Here is a tip, you will get all the extras if you can demonstrate to the owner that you know a thing or two about Juventus. He is a huge fan.

“Honest food honest price”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Walked here from visiting Vatican, stumbled on it by chance while looking for back street value, clean fast service. Set menu @ 13 euro was filling fast & fresh
