First impression the restaurant seems very nice and in a niche area. However after you sit down you notice the dirty walls, water running down past the pictures and dust. When I saw the family and waiters that ran the restaurant, on my way in, I was immediately reminded of Gordon Ramsey's restaurant nightmares. The bread we were given was stale and the olive was horrible. The taste made my mouth itch. When the food came it looked disgusting. It tasted bland and was not fresh. After the main course I decided to cut my losses, pay and leave. However the night hadn't finished because I spent the evening throwing up and on the toilet due to food poisoning. All the guest from my party experienced similar symptoms. I would avoid this restaurant at all costs.

This is a lovely little place just a short walk through a beautiful, quiet neighborhood from Relais 6, our hotel. We weren't all that hungry so we can't comment extensively on the food, but what we did have was excellent. My wife had a veal cutlet, which was her favorite meal of our whole one-week stay in Rome. I had some tasty spaghetti and a very good veal dish as well. The tiramisu, made by the restaurant's matriarch, was the best we had In Rome. The service - carried on by the entire delightful family - was very friendly and efficient. We got free samples of their focaccia and home-made lemoncella cream, both of which were excellent. We loved the atmosphere, the lighting, the whole feel of the place. It was also very neat and clean. The pride of ownership was obvious.

My husband arrived at our hotel late Sunday evening and went in search of food. We were delighted to find Ristorante La Casetta. Our waiter's, (Massimo) family has owned the restaurant for years. His English was so much better than our non-existent Italian that we felt at home. Recommended food was fresh and delicious. Our introduction to his aunt's lemonicello was" molto buono." We returned to the restaurant several times during our week's stay in Rome.
