In every sense. Delicious food, very nice staff and very reasonable prices. Exceptional toilets as for Italy-really. If they had outdoor sitting it would be perfect!!!

Our first evening was so nice that we went a second time, during our stay in Rome. Friendly welcome, fantastic winelist, at reasonable prices. Authentic food and familial atmosphere. Highly recommended. Take a reservation before you go!

They charged my Mastercard in Canadian dollars at a bad exchange rate, and added a 3 Euro fee as a markup on the exchange rate. I only noticed it later in faint print on my receipt: "I accept that I have been offered a choice of currencies payment" – not true, there was no choice offered – "and that this choice is final. I accept the conversion rate and final amount." Not cool.

Originally found this on tripadvisor as it was just around the corner from where we were staying. Dropped in for lunch and was not at all disappointed. The atmosphere is wonderful, beautiful painted walls, music and a location just away from all the tourist locations. Had read about he Carbonara ( and I try it everywhere we go in Italy) and I have to say it is probably the best I have had. be warned, it is so rich and creamy do NOT have an appetizer ! Fantastic fried pancetta compliments the rich flavor, top notch. The fresh baked bread was warm out of the oven and wonderful. The others had the gnocchi which was very very good and the arrabiatta was great, especially if you love garlic.

We loved it so much we booked for dinner two nights later. We come to Rome often and this place is a new favourite, very good quality for the money. And Though this has nothing to do with the food, after 3 years and multiple trips all around Italy, this had to be the largest, cleanest toilets I. Have seen, it is nice to see an establishment care about the little things.

Not hard to find, just. 3 mins from Piazza Navona. And when done, go around the corner on Via Coronairi to the Gelateria del Teatro, to die for !

Found this place by accident when walking between the river and Piazza Navona. We hadn't booked so were lucky to get in. The food was lovely, with some complimentary dishes. The service was good too.
