A family managed restaurant in which you will find a great cooking mixed up with the warmth and the cordiality of a experienced and good-tasted staff. From the beginning to the end, an exquisite culinary-trip.

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
