This place seems great for the locals, however they seemed to have no interest in my husband and I when we arrived and sat down. The food was absolutely amazing but the service was a little disappointing. We felt a litre uncomfortable and ignored. Would possibly try again for the food alone.

My friend and I arrived in Rome close to midnight, naturally our first thought being food. We checked into our hostel, but were bummed because it looked like all the restaurants around our area were closing. However, our hostel manager called Sapori di Casa. They were closing, but decided to stay open for us. Our meal was perfect and satisfying,... More

Stayed down the street at Domus Castrense, came home late and Sapori was still open so we stepped in for dinner. Despite how late it was, it was still quite busy inside. Took a bit of time for a waiter to come see us at our table, but there were only two people serving food, cleaning up, and cashing people... More

Slow service, no salt no pepper no oil on the table. No salt no pepper on the green salad or chicken. Chips burnt and extremely oily. Uninviting and abrupt waitress. Food mediocre and the entire experience disappointing considering all the other reviews.

A place with local spirit, definetly. But open to tourists. Really crowded on weekend, especially that there is not too many tables. We loved the rome-spirit and friendly service. Food was solid and tasty. But surprisingly we had to wait a while for a meal. We had pizza Napoli and ravioli with ricotta. Place worth of checking. Definitely!

The food and wine were delicious and affordable. The restaurant was full of locals, which leans towards a more authentic experience!

We have been here on several occasions now, we stayed very near so it was convenient for us. The food is really good and the house wine was quite acceptable. They do get very busy so be prepared to wait, no good going here if you're starving..you will have to wait, maybe the best time to go is when they... More

Great family run restaurant and homemade pastas. Good average price for 2 people with wine 40 Euros. Would recommend to any traveler but get there before 8 as it can get busy. Locals come to this restaurant so you know it's good.

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo may look all street with its pulse in urban art and street food, but don’t be fooled. This gritty student neighbourhood immediately east of Termini train station is on the avant-garde rise. Art galleries, curated mural projects by artists like Rome’s favorite Alice, charming cafes, and boutique restaurants are slowly infiltrating the streets of San Lorenzo with counter-culture chic. Don’t worry, San Lorenzo still retains its local vibe with weekend festivals and demonstrations, and is always a hub for Rome’s university student scene.
