Found this place by chance. Empty when we arrived at 7:30. Almost totally full by 8pm. Typical Italian food. Well prepared and a good variety Apart from the restaurant there was a steady take away trade going on. Good value for money.

We ate here one night on the recommendation of the desk clerk at our hotel. He made note that this is where the locals eat. How true. Authentic, good, delicious Italian dishes that were so fresh and diverse, I wish we could have explored more of the menu. Staff was very friendly and engaged in conversation other than just taking...

We couldn't find the restaurant we had been recommended, so poped in here. Lovely food, good value. Great staff who were very friendly and even our poor Italian didn't cause a problem.

This restaurant has got to be our favourite out off all of the ones we have been to in Rome. It is reasonably priced and the staff are great. If you go midweek it seems to be quite quiet but if you go at a weekend it has such a fantastic atmosphere. We are already looking forward to going back... More

Ate here 3 times when staying at Park Dei Massimi hotel. Ambience was nice and plenty of locals eat here. Pasta seemed bland compared to recipes in England however Pizzas were good value with amazingly thin crust. Beware if you order the steak, as it comes without an accompanyment unless you specify one. Service was friendly and ok, however staff... More
