Biggest challenge is a reservation, only open two nights a week!! Better known for its lunches, this is a secret venue that Italians (political types mainly) happily keep to themselves. Very authentic trattoria plus. Friendly, simple, no frills and great. Kitchen knows how to cook...More

Wonderful and delicious. Keep in mind that they do not take reservations for lunch and you have to wait; while you absolutely need a reservation for dinner.

The owner is a very gentle person and makes the most to make customers feel welcome, this is to say. But unfortunately the food is low quality and the prices not at all fair. Rather expensive indeed.

Pasticcio is fully booked during peak hours so you had better reserve in advance if you want to eat here. And you do. The food is good, the service is fast and furious :) and they serve some good wine. Enjoy.

Service and food here were outstanding. It was also extremely reasonable price-wise and certainly well worth it when you considered the quality. This is best Italian food I have eaten outside Italy. I would recommend highly.

Don't know for sure as I don't live there and it was about 2 months ago when I went. But I went early - around 6 pm. I'm pretty sure it's open late as it got more crowded around 8 pm.
