Went here a couple of days ago, it took the young man serving us at least 15 minutes to ask what we would like to drink.. oh yes and this day was 37 degrees!! Also took even longer to get the check!! Air con not working and food very average.. Wouldn't put myself though that again!!!

We went there in the pouring rain whilst staying at the First Hotel down the street. It is a fairly typical family type restaurant. The proprietress was not entirely endearing and did not assist much with the menu but the food was pretty good and the portions huge. Don't have antipasto, pasta and a main dish unless you are very greedy, or much will be sent back unbeaten. Service was efficient and atmosphere ok. Overall good value but you can do better by walking a couple of hundred metres to Edy Restaurant which is really good!

We stumbled across this place accidentally, so my expectations weren't too high, but the food was really good . A lot of fish options, and you should focus on these (my fish pasta was excellent!) as you can get the others elsewhere as well. Combined with a couple of bottles of prosecco, this was a great place to spend the evening.

Very friendly place with great food and wine. We had several nice evenings there, away from stressful streets and crowded tourist places. I recommend the deep fried baby squid, delicious. We also had very nice sea bass. The best of all was the relaxed athmosphere.

We had dinner here three times during our recent week in Rome. We first were drawn to it because of the free wifi, since we had trouble with the wireless in our nearby apartment rental. The food and friendly service brought us back. The ham (proscuitto) and buffala mozzarella were fabulous the first time, later in the week it seemed that the mozzarella was not as fresh - maybe they don't make it every day. My teen loved the gnocchi with a creamy, cheesy tomato sauce, and my preteen loved the pasta with pesto - chewy, homemade pasta with a flavorful sauce. My husband and I tried three different fish dishes, all fantastic. The lasagna was also wonderful. We don't drink wine but didn't feel the "freeze" that we sometimes get from waiters when we don't order alcohol. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly when we wanted to move to a different table to get better wifi reception. Others complained that the service was slow - um, aren't you on vacation? Relax, enjoy your dinner! We didn't feel that the service was any slower than anywhere else in Rome, and we felt welcome to stay as long as we wanted, even after we were done eating and were just checking facebook and email.
