“Where Romans Eat”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

We were told about this restaurant, the home of the famous Peroni beer, by our Roman landlord. Despite being located several blocks away from the Trevi Fountain, this delightful eatery is far enough removed from the popular routes to avoid being a restaurant catering to tourists. The menu is cucina typica, the waiters pure Roman and our fellow diners predominantly locals and area businessmen. My favorite was the puntarelle with an anchovy sauce (the latter will radically change your likely negative preconceptions about the overly salty and oily fish commonly served on pizza and salads in the US; the anchovy sauce was delicate and a perfect match for the crunchy greens), frito misto and cacio e pepe. The waiters reminded me of those at Peter Luger's in Brooklyn, a bit frosty but with none of the Luger disdain. The prices were fair. I wish we had discovered this place on earlier trips to Roma. It is a great lunch stop and your palate will be most pleased.

“Worth the visit”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Really cool historical spot. "Old Italy" feel and good sevice.
We only had beer and appetizers, but were very pleased.
It's worth the visit to see the building and old pictures.
Only a few blocks from Trevi Fountain

“Great find for reasonably priced food”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We decided to have lunch here as it was recommend in the Rome guide. It's a typical roman eaterie and it was buzzing with people having lunch. Most were business folk in for a quick lunch and despite the menu being in Italian only we were able to order food that we thoroughly enjoyed. Please note as this is classed as a beer hall you can only get Peroni or wine here as they don't stock any spirits, notwithstanding it was a good experience.

“A typical Roman restaurant”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We ate here as it was recommended in both guide books and we were glad we did. The place typical of an old fashioned family run Italian restaurant , noise,chaos, cramped seating fairly grumpy waiters. The food was excellent and at a reasonable price. The place is just round the corner from the Trivi Fountain but despite its location it was almost full of locals. Recommended for a taste of old fashioned Roman cuisine and atmosphere.
