Had a meal on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was quiet and the staff attentive. Menus are hand written and focus on either fish or meat. Prices are average. Portion size was a little mean which never gives the best impression. The restaurant is more of a shabby chic establishment rather than fine dining and it would be good to... More

I was enchanted by this small restaurant recommended to me by the owner of my B&B. Decorated eclectically with varying chairs, tables and lights, the restaurant features two menus: fish or meat. I chose fish and had an amazing calamari salad, a perfectly cooked tuna filet. Accompanied by the local wines of Lazio which the restaurant features.

This Osteria typically makes you feel comfortable when you enter it. Good food, pleasant hoste. The price quality experience is excellent. Wine is ok , range to choose is not too large. We had an excellent Cesanese.

Great food, superb service and a lovely environment. Throughly recommended. Very helpful English speaking host helped us through the Italian menu (the trio of starters and the grilled squid were superb).

While late for lunch a nice salad was prepared, with a great glass of wine. This place was recommended by B&B il giardino who also called this restaurant to organise for us a nice salad. The place is nicely decorated, not at the most beautiful spot, but this is compensated by the nice food and great service.

We were drowning in the torrential rain with our 2 year old and the kind hosts took us in an hour before opening and allowed us to wait and have drinks whilst they set up. Their hospitality will be long remembered and the food was not only interesting but fresh and extremely tasty. The cover photo does not do justice... More

Reading other reviews on Tripadvisor, I think we must have arrived as the chef left! Although the location & waiting staff were very pleasant, the meal was inedible. However it must have been the cheapest bill we had during our Italy tour so I guess you pays your money... I cannot say other than avoid :(
