Nice restaurant in the Aventino neighborhood, suitable for a quiet and romantic evening. We could taste excellent Italian cuisine. The elegance and the hospitality of this place have really amazed us. The bill was right for the proposed experience. We definitely recommend this!

Chose this as it was close by to our hotel but food was very disappointing and expensive for the portion size. Osso Bucco was fatty and tasteless and came with just peas so not filling. Octopus was bland and rubbery

Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is
Rome’s oasis. A neighbourhood made up of a patchwork
of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and
embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the
vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around
the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of
surprises like the clever little keyhole at the
Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find
