One of the classics of Rome. I was wondering if it was going to be more touristy and less authentic, but it really didn’t matter, the food and service were great. Okay, prices are a notch above normal trattoria prices, but the quality of my...More

Received the rudest service. No welcome when you walk in. Waited 25 minutes for a table. All couples tables received bread baskets, not for solo tables though. Tried to place an order three times, but waiters just walk by. The moment I finished my plate...More

I liked this restaurant, food and service. We had some meals we were sharing with friends and each meal was really tasty. Prices are bit higher, than I expected, but still quite affordable. If you are looking for a local place with nice food and...More

A reservation (for lunch or dinner) is always a good idea. This is a very popular spot and fills up fast. Don't be disappointed, give them a call to ensure a seat and a great meal! Cheers
