This restaurant is truly old style, both interior, yet more important also its food style. If you like sizeable portions, not too refined (or not refined at all!) and with liberal use of salt then this will be your place. Once upon times its chef...More

A light, green salad and pasta did the job today. Rounded off with a cafe latte. This is a good lunch venue.

Going to this place is like travelling in time. The building, the decoration, the server, the chief, all seem to belong to the 19th century ! It is a memorial in itself. The food was well presented and very tasty. We loved it. And the...More

Despite the name and the description, the culinary experience is more gastronomical rather than mere italian! The atmosphere is very classical but warm. The chef welcomed us after we sat at our table and made some suggestions regarding the menu. And what a menu, definitely...More

It is an unassuming restaurant with just a few tables. The owner himself is the chef. I assumed he is paying attention to the gastronomic crowd in the art of crafting first rate food. The wait was not too long. The saltimbuca a la romana...More

I went there twice. The first time, in april 2014, was better than the second time in december 2014, but not by far. Maybe the bad experience is due to the fact I had a Deindeal offer... I don't know. The welcome is nice. The...More
