We were recommended this place on our first night in Rome and when we arrived it was fully booked. There were some tables outside and were told the wait would be 10-20 mins. We decided to wait as figured that if it was busy then it was obviously a good place to eat.
We were brought out a glass of wine each to have while we were waiting.
After the wait we finally got a table and we ordered pizza , chips and garlic bread with the house wine. All was delicious and service was great.
We decided to go back the following night. Again it was full and we were told it would be a 10 Min wait again which again we were happy with. There was another couple already waiting and they had a complimentary glass of wine so we kind of assumed we would get the same again as we had done the previous night. After a wait we realised that they were too busy to remember so we didn’t really mind at all
until a group of five came in and also had to wait and within one minute of them turning up one of the waiters who we hadn’t seen the night before came out with glasses of wine for all of them despite the fact we had already been sat there long before they came along. The waiter that gave them the wine stopped and looked at us sat there and then completely ignored us and went back inside. After another 5 minutes we went somewhere else as felt this was deliberately rude and was the only thing that stopped us giving five stars.
We actually decided to give it another try the following night as the food the first night had been brilliant and this time we got a table straight away. We had the same waitress from the first evening and This time we had lasagne and chips which was also very nice.

We came here on a Sunday night. The restaurant was full and we were told it would be 5-10 minutes. 20 min later, we were still waiting outside. They brought some sparkling wine and we waited some more. In total, more than 30 min but a patron came out to smoke and just raved about how good it was so we waited. Once inside, we were not disappointed. We ordered 2 carbonara, a salmon penne and a linguine vongole. All were excellent. 2 desserts to finish plus limoncello and we were full, happy and satisfied. Family run and super delicious. Would def recommend.

Having arrived at our hotel after travelling all day, we were recommended this restaurant by the hotel receptionist. Upon our arrival we were the only people there however after 30 minutes other people started to arrive. By no means the best restaurant but the food was good and the prices ok by Rome standards. Ideal for what we were after at the time.
