“Fantastic little place”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Our guide from Context Tours recommended this place for Florentine Steak. When we got there, the host was apologetic that they were booked. We asked if we could wait, and he let us know, sadly, that it might be as long as 20 minutes. I loved this. It was plenty of time to have a glass of wine and peruse the amazing meat locker near the front door. The food was fantastic - the steak was all I wanted it to be. The tiramisu - to die for. The atmosphere - wonderful. Not too touristy.

“Great and not touristy authentic Italian restaurant nearby Vatican City”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

It has a few tables on the street and elegant inside. You can see the meat grilled in the kitchen in the middle. Selection of Italian starters and main courses, but not a touristy menu, no pizza, no carbonara.

“Award winner and historical restaurant”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Good location, in a quiet road near the Vatican. Despite the fact that it's speciality is Bistecca Fiorentina, a very juicy steak, we've ordered only salad and pasta (primi piatti). The taste was very good but the portions very poor - especially for a Greek guy like me. My advice : order the bistecca... Extra advantage : the restaurant was full of stylish Italians

“Close to the Vatican with good food!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I had an excellent homemade spaghetti. They had several "reserved" tables that they held for Italians that didn't seem to have actual reservations. The waiters require you to order an appetizer as well as an entree or First Course so know that before you go in. I don't know that they love Americans there but the food was great!

“Really good food!!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Pretty sure we were the only non-italians here but damn this place is fine!!! Had the roasted portabella mushrooms. Really good. Also great place to people watch. Very nice owner, very gruff waiters. Good location. Good food.
