Biggest challenge is a reservation, only open two nights a week!! Better known for its lunches, this is a secret venue that Italians (political types mainly) happily keep to themselves. Very authentic trattoria plus. Friendly, simple, no frills and great. Kitchen knows how to cook...More

Wonderful and delicious. Keep in mind that they do not take reservations for lunch and you have to wait; while you absolutely need a reservation for dinner.

We went without a reservation, which was an error but we happily waited around the entrance area, snacking on aperitifs and it was fine. That said the wait was long enough and it was a little chaotic in terms of the waiting list so took...More

Don't know for sure as I don't live there and it was about 2 months ago when I went. But I went early - around 6 pm. I'm pretty sure it's open late as it got more crowded around 8 pm.
