I was recommended this restaurant by my mum who has eaten here a few times before on work trips. I started with the mozzarella which she claimed was a must try and I have to say that it was very good. I also tried an...artichoke dish which seemed to be one of their specialties. The main course was very rich but very nice and the dessert was beautifully presented. The staff were very friendly and really added to the atmosphere! You could tell it was a family run restaurant and the atmosphere was really intimate even when seated outside as it is located away from the chaos and expense of the main tourist area. Overall a great experience!More

The wine list is fit for a small town in the middle of some desert, totally unoriginal and not fit for the place and food. Pasta was cooked to oblivion, we think it was precooked and cooked again. That is why the disaster.

Seems to be very renowned place for Roman dishes and we went as indicated by our hotel owner, but the food is very heavy with very poor service. Unfortunately even the location itself did not smell very good. You can find much better alternatives.

We visited early March, in artichoke season. Overall, very good! Attentive waiter, quick service and food! Overcooked the Jewish artichoke we had for starter, but the Roman style was great! Pasta (ravioli with spinach and ricotta) was terrific, potata Barbara good, grilled meat ok.

I went this place with my friends for eating a great dinner. (It was a 12 person-group) First of all we got a horrible place in a dark, depressing and very-very table - croweded cellar. We can’t move easy, because one line was in next...to the wall and the other line was very close to the neighbours’s tables. The cutleires are very used and the menu and the napkins was dirty. We ordered natural water without gas, and we got tap water for in original mineral water price... I and some of my friend order Fritto misto for appetizer. We shouldn’t do it, because it was eatable: very-very-very fatty, like the worst hungarian langosh, tastless and in some point overcooked. When I told the waiter (breaded guy) he was high-minded, rude, and he was lecturing me this dish is the best and every place all over in Italy are making the same way. When I told, it’s not true, because I eat similiars food in Rome too and they very delicious and for me it’s not he was offended and he asked very very rudled - I want to something else. I say no, because I lost my appatite and I said I dont want to eat this food. Then he went away and we think it’s useless to say the other problems with the food! All the food was tastless and overcooked on the table! Finally, I just tasted my meal when I told the waiter my problem with the food and I didn’t eat it, beacuse it was taken away in front of me and that’s item was in the bill. They didn’t apologized and said something like that - oh I’m sorry or okay I see you dont lile your dish ans you wont eat it so I won’t charge you with this item. NO they were so shamless to ask my dish’s price (10 euros...). It was late and I was so tired and very sad about the situation and I and my friends saw there is no time and we haven’t got any spirit to fight with the waiters. So we payed the bill and left the restaurant with a bad experience. Overall, we think this is kind of a tourist-trap and you can find much - much more better restaurants in the same neighbourhoud!More

Enjoyed a late dinner at this restaurant. The food was outstanding - fried artichoke and mozzarella, fresh pasta, and veal - all excellent! Our waiter, Francesco, was the best - so nice and a great sense of humor. Highly recommend!

We had an excellent meal, the service was good and everything was very tasty. The panacotta was especially delicious. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

The food was fantastic and authentic and the waiters were fast and friendly. We had a nice evening there. Even though it is a quite big place it does feel cosy. We fully recommend it for a truly Roman food experience.

The food was excellent! Fabio was our server and made the experience even better. We went to dinner there 3 times over our stay in Rome after the restaurant was recommended by a guard outside of the Vatican wall. We were not disappointed. Try any...of the pastas...they are full of flavor. I really liked their homemade pana cotta.More
