We had great food in this Resto. The green salad with gorgonzola, nuts and pears was great and also the "Saltimbocca alla romana" with the spinach and mashed potatoes was very tasty. You get a bottle of water for free and they have nice beers...More

Tabella is a real treat, hard to walk out for under $100. All local and yummy, I had a great stuffed Mushroom, and steak etc. They even offer some larger dinner sized plates, bigger than the tapas size. It is not a family friendly place--...More
