We went there upon a recommendation from our hotel. We did read some TripAdvisor reviews prior but still where willing to try.

Place it's a bit odd. Despite semi empty of Wed night, waiters where not to fuss if we will sit down or go else at all. They gave us menu, asked to choose a drink - standard, all fine and lovely. Once we chosen pasta we were told that actually from the card, showing about 10 only 3 are available.
Once chosen again, not our first choice a wrong order arrived.

Place is average, not much attention to customer and the decor is is just so-so. There really are much nicer places within minutes to walk.

The owner of our apartment recommended this restaurant. It was our first visit to Rome so we trusted local knowledge. It was ok. Most of the pasta dishes were not available which was disappointing, and the past dish I did end up with tasted like tinned spaghetti. Wouldn't recommend.

Our apartment owner recommended eating at Nuovo Canestro, so we went the first night we were in town. We didn't-and wouldn't-go back again.

In the first place, half of what we ordered was not available. I wanted spaghetti caccio e peppe, and the owner told me, "NO. This..." and gave me spaghetti amatriciana. Two of the others ordered pasta with shrimp, and they had a hard time finding shrimp in the dish. The only good thing was a seafood dish one of the men ordered.

We left with not a great feeling. The next night we went to a place around the corner where the owner was nice and they had everything on the menu.
