They are very unfriendly and poor in food. In particular, male employees should learn courtesy..

I booked to go there last night. I arrived on time, and found a long line outside, which was not moving. It looked like a wait of 30 minutes or more. I was assured by the staff that all of the people standing outside had...More

Carbonara here was great. Very different from the one I know which I’ve tasted outside of Italy. Rich cheese sauce and grilled Italian bacon, simple dish but the taste was amazing. Better to book for lunch and dinner on weekends.

I had been there around April 2017... After a small research online, I was proactive and booked a table, otherwise seems we wouldn't have a chance. As expected we tried the carbonara combined with an amazing red wine (Nero - San Peitro)... What can I...More

A very cosy and beautifully decorated restaurant that so lives up to it's billing - the carbonara is simply wonderful and with a fine choice of other dishes and wines.

We booked a table on Saturday night, our first evening in Rome, and we were certainly pleased we did! The restaurant was absolutely packed but had a fabulous buzz and we were soon taken to our table. The waiter was friendly and very helpful, with...More

Had dinner here and we both loved it. Mozzarella amazing and full of flavour. Carbonara unsurprisingly stole the show but their other pasta was also delicious. Steak with truffles and cheese was perfection. Definitely book ahead, people were turned away.

I ordered the carbonara, which was so amazing that I ordered a second plate. The second time, it seemed as if the cook was in a hurry, as the spaghetti was a bit too al dente - or, as you say, a tad undercooked. The...More

The staff is really nice, the atmosphere and ambient are cool with scribbles all over the walls. The carbonara is really really good, and perfect with a Peroni, it makes me want to go back to Rome.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at

We went for lunch without booking. Were told 1hr waiting which we did to get away from the heat. Had some wine at the bar and chatted away with on the the brothers. I think we ended up waiting 20/30min. I am glad we did!
