Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The place came recommended buy was a disappointment for a group of 8. We had tried plenty of dishes between us and couldnt find anything really good. Most dishes fell into the range from mediocre to reasonable. Certainly dont see a reason to come back.

I went to dinner at this place with my family on the 18th of February. We had considered going to Luciano, which is quite close. However, we decided to try this restaurant, where we had not been before. What a wrong choice! The restaurant, as...a whole, fell well below what is expected of a restaurant of its supposed category. From the beginning, the waiter who served our table was completely unprepared for the service. Rough in his responses and without any concern about serving the customer in a civilized manner. He was rude and impolite, to the point of throwing the Cacio Pepe dish we ordered onto the table without even apologizing for the mistake. This without any reason for such behavior. But the issue was not just the poor service. The dishes we ordered were all below expectations. The Cacio Pepe was overly salty, to the point where we could not finish the portion. The Carbonara dish was made with excessive sauce, compromising the flavor of the pasta. The ravioli a matriciana was prepared with a very acidic tomato sauce, souring the pasta. We decided not to stay even for dessert! Also because the overall appearance of the restaurant is not inviting, seeming neglected and decadent. In conclusion, a terrible dining experience. Stay away from it.More

Their four course set menu is very hard to argue with when it comes to quality and price. We had multiple carbonaras in Rome and this was the winner, the main courses on the set menu had a feel of simple home cooking but were...rich in flavour. We were told via email that we strictly only had the table for two hours. Two hours flew by and nobody moved us on. Good ambience and generous pours of limoncello to finish the evening. Plenty of local wine on the menu from the region, always great to see. We dusted off two bottles between us and were big fans.More

Unfortunately, we had a bad experience here last night, and I want to advice vegetarians and families to stay clear of this place. The service was so-so, with the biggest issue being that they were unwilling to adapt any dishes for vegetarians, or to make...a simple tomato pasta for our young kids, as almost all restaurants in Italy do. We were forced to order the Tonnarelli, as the only vegetarian-friendly option on the menu. This one may be a matter of taste (I am selective with cheeses, and only like some pecorino), but the dish smelled and tasted absolutely horrendous. I was the only one of the four of us to try it and it remained virtually untouched. Another appetizer we ordered from their scarce, vegetarian selection contained pumpkin pieces that were overcooked to a mushy consistency and dropped into melted pecorino. Again, this one may be a matter of taste; as mentioned above, the pecorino wasn't to our liking. I was particularly excited to have panzanella, one of my favorite Italian dishes, and it being on their menu was the primary reason we had made a reservation here. If you've never had panzanella, please google some images. It is basically salad consisting of large tomato and bread pieces. What we got is depicted on the attached photo: seemingly, old bread and tomatoes mashed with a hand blender into the shape and consistency of cold, canned cat food, garnished with 3 olives. This was also not eaten (the attached picture is misleading, as we scooped some of it onto our plates to try, but no one liked it). The stale and flavorless bread is not worth ordering, but was the only thing our kids were able to eat (after requesting olive oil, salt and pepper), as well as the roasted potatoes. In the end, when the waiter asked us why most of the food (in particular, the tonnarelli) was untouched, we politely said that we didn't like it (the tonnarelli). In my experience, a good, reputable restaurant would never charge you for a dish that is sent back virtually untouched (and was so appalling that the customer openly expressed this to the waiter) but they did.More

We were looking forward to this evening. We had received beforehand several emails informing us that we would have the table for only two hours and we thought “wow, what a privilege, this place must be so popular, how lucky we are to have a...table even if we have to leave imperatively after two hours”. We entered and no smile. We ordered and still no smile. We were not informed of the extra dishes of the day. Some people started coming but the room was almost totally empty. Most were tourists. Food arrived. The dish looked decent. And then we started eating. The “polpette di bollito” which we wanted so much to taste were extremely salty, we left them. Then the main dishes arrived. A seabass covered with pieces of artichoke, puntarelle with their anchovy sauce, braised beef cheek. Everything was again extremely salty. I have been eating puntarelle in Rome for ages and, yes, I know that anchovies are salted, but not to the point of being inedible. The fish was also totally inedible from too much salt. We asked the waiter to take everything back and bring us the bill. He did so without saying anything, not even an excuse. We left and more than 2/3 of the room was still empty. We have been coming in Rome for decades and good food is easy to find. Roman hospitality is not well represented here. Good ingredients badly cooked, served without even a smile. This place ruined our evening.More

I went to the restaurant with a lot of expectation based on the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. The food was quite good, but the waiters appeared to be either busy or inattentive, since no one asked if we liked the dishes. We ordered the Strawberry...Tart of the Day for dessert. We barely touched it because it wasn't tasty. Nobody seemed to notice.More

Great location and the food did not disappoint. I would recommend making a reservation as it was crowded. Not all the tables were taken but could have been held for other reservations. Got the meatballs, two pastas, and a bottle of wine. All was good...and very reasonably priced.More

What a delightful place! There is a friendly and professional staff and simple but pleasant ambiance. Most importantly, the great Roman standards are cooked with competence and respect. Our Spaghetti Carbonara, Lamb Shank and Zabaione were superb. The wine list is extensive and fairly priced....Both tourists and locals are hosted with genuine hospitality. Around the corner from the carnival atmosphere of Campo di Fiori, this is a venue that merits repeat and regular custom. We look forward to coming back. If we were here more often, it could be our local!More

The food was delicious. We got every course at this restaurant and walked out so full, but it was worth it. The antipasto misto was so impressive. Everything well thought out, balanced, and delicious. The pasta dishes were phenomenal. That guaciale was the best I...had in Rome, better than at Luciano's imo. Although it's in quotes on the menu, so is it guaciale? Maybe pork belly. Either way it was impeccable. We shared the guancia brasata which was so tender and flavorful and came with some greens (I think escarole) for flavor balance. Finally we ordered the maritozzo for dessert, a perfect ending to a wonderful meal. There was a baby in the restaurant having trouble staying still, and the staff was very accommodating to the family which I thought was nice.More

A modern Trattoria, a bit off the beaten track, 5 minutes away from Piazza Navona with genuine home cooking - caccio Pepe, lamb and burrata based gelato. The menu de gustacione is great value - and the Antipasti (x3) is a nice sampler. Most of...the diners seemed to be local, which was - a stamp of approval!More

Made reservations over a month in advance based on good reviews. Tried to call and email the restaurant for an earlier time but no reply to either. We arrived about 10 minutes early and restaurant was only half full. Hostess was nice. Server was both...impatient and rude. When we weren't ready to order after only a few minutes of being seated, she huffed away. When someone asked a question, she seemed bothered. Food was ok but nothing special. With all the choices in Rome, we would not recommend or return.More
