Very good food, good atmosphere and service, but unfortunately they use microwave which is a huge draw back for authentic Roman cuisine.

About 36 euros for 2 Tartuffi, 1 limone ice cream, 1l bottled water, and a cappuccino. Excellent quality Solid service Plenty of time to take in the sight and talk Obviously expensive as would be expected given the location and name. Can take with to save a little and eat in the piazza. Makes for a good memory.

Once in Rome if you want to be the ONLY tourist eating in one of the last real trattoria then go to : "li scalini de Maria" . For some odd reason TripAdvisor is using a mispelled name of it and we did not find a way to correct it. Here below their link. http://www.rionegarbatella.it/ristoranti-trattorie/li-scalini-de-marisa-garbatella Family run restaurant with Granny,... More

My cooking teacher brought me here..It's a local joint, run by the owners, and the food is authentic Roman food. You'll find no tourists here. Not exceptional, but quite good traditional dishes and loved by the neighbors. A delicious way to get away from the tourist menus and find old Rome.

I love this place in the heart of Garbatella neighborhood, the family feel, the down-to-earth waitresses, the simple and genuine food. Marisa is one of my favouritesa, with a great price-quality ratio. I particularly reccomend rigatoni al sugo di coda and bollito picchiapò!

it is a typical trattoria in rome, not a pompous restaurant. Very simple but picturesque. Great variety of food, very good price: I was looking for something special to bring colleagues from Milan and Bologna to dinner. They went crazy.. and I can add it is real "cucina romana" not for tourists.

Thank mevaleau69
