Visited on a Wednesday in may based on a recommendation from our hotel reception. She said we wouldn't need a reservation but, based on the crowd in the place it would have been better to make one. We had salad starter and just a pasta course with an uncomfortable wait in between (like at least 30 minutes). Pasta was good... More

It is nice inside. Servers are very polite. Food looks good but, too salty to my taste. There were five of us and we shared family style but 3 out of 5 dishes were on salty side. Disappointed. Nice cozy place. May be just a bad day for the chef (and us.)

Delicious, well priced, classic Italian fare near the Coliseum. Stopped in on a Thursday night around 8 PM and was seated right away for a table for 3. Our server was attentive and helpful as a couple of us were not as well versed in Italian. Lots of tourists were in the restaurant as I noticed most were speaking English.

We chose this restaurant for our last night in Rome. It was our hotels recommendation, however, with a quick look on Trip Advisor, the reviews were also great. Don't be put off by their website. Having quickly looked at it myself, I was put off by the long list of menus. On visiting, you will find that of an evening... More

This was our last dinner in Rome and it was a delight. I had Spaghetti al vongole and it was perfect. The Spaghetti was perfectly al dente, the sauce clung to the pasta and the vongole were juicy little morsels. My fiancé had a seafood risotto and her dish was also perfect, both were exceptional versions of traditional Italian pasta... More

It's a nice restaurant with nice food and a nice ambience. It's better to visit in the evening. Try the wine of the house and try everything with pasta.

Our family of 3 ate here for dinner. The ravioli, steak and ossobucco were amazing but the showstopper was the tiramisu. Best we have had in Italy so far on our trip.

Visited with husband and three kids (6, 9, 11) for dinner. Very traditional, very welcoming but not amazing. Food tasty, well cooked and generous but we had to work hard to find dishes for the younger two. I think if you want classic Roman food you will enjoy but if you're used to slightly more contemporary food you may be... More

It's a historical restaurant near the Colosseum, that offers Roman dishes, meat, fish, no pizza. Air conditioning, free wifi, small pets allowed, disabled inaccessible. Go park the car on the blue parking lots scattered around the area, and have a walk through the evocative streets of the city centre. You can reach us by stepping off the Metro A "Cavour". Characteristic dessert of the place: the Dolcevita, a sort of "panna cotta" without eggs (it was dedicated the the Italian director Fellini, who happened to be allergic to eggs).
