“Not bad!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I had dinner with a group of friends one night in this typical Roman "trattoria". Here you can find some typical Roman dishes such as the "pajata". The atmosphere is definitely not formal (no suit and ties, absolutely!!!), it's a great place to go with friends. There is no written menu, one of them will come and list all the dishes available.
I recommend it to anyone who wants to eat something typical, but don't go there if you expect to find an elegant environment!!

“Kind of wanna-be rough trendy.. But it works!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Many people talk about this trattoria in Rome...
..The result is that I found a real (..A bit forced) effort in being unconventionally rough trendy that fascinates in a way.
The decor is kind of deliberately bare and the table arrangement leaves very small space for manoeuvre.
The service is efficient but once again intentionally spartan with direct questions and answers and no written menu.
Food wise, lots of traditional dishes, many of them rooted in the working class mentality. They are tasty and they work, however they go down kind of heavy with salt and olive oil (so do not expect a light meal), but I guess that is also part of the traditional cooking mentality of the area.
So I guess the place has its own charm..

“Betto and Mary”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Betto and Mary is the name on the bill - the address is the same as above. Care clearly needs to be taken because it is not the same restaurant as Mejo Betto and Mary.

This rather rustic restaurant is not in the centre of town (Filarete - 10 stops out on the bus from Termini), but if you are in the area this is a pretty good place to land up. No menu, but we did have the bill - we went there several nights during our accidental stay in the area. We have given it a top rating, because, although it is pretty rustic, it is very good for what it does: The staff are tremendous, full of fun, the food is good honest Italian cooking ... the wine rough ..., the premises, while basic, are clean and cheerful, and prices are good. But most of all it is hugely popular with locals, to the extent that you may need to book.

You can see the food being prepared in the kitchen. There is a restaurant area just off the street, which leads on to a courtyard area with seating, and then a sort of shed extension at the back. All 3 areas are likely to be heaving, which tells you all you need to know.
