This is probably the best pasta my wife and I have had in Italy- no mean feat, considering we just spent two weeks in northern Italy during our honeymoon. The cacio e pepe and carbonara were sublime. The starters and main was decent, but the...More

Possibly a bit out of the way for some tourists but we were recommended this restaurant by the hosts at our accommodation as we were staying nearby. We had the salami and cheese plate to share - more than ample for 2 people. Then we...More

I enjoyed lunch in this cozy little restaurant. The cacio e Pepe was excellent as was the local white wine from Lazio.

Just had one of my best Italian meals here. If you get to be in Rome at some point don't forget to eat here and if you're having dinner make sure to have a dessert. Just well cooked and cared for food, truly delicious.

We had a fantastic meal on Saturday night with great service, and beautifully presented, delicious food. A real change from traditional bistro fare. We were lucky to get a drop in table since we were early so if you are eating later I recommend booking.

After visiting this restaurant twice, I can safely say that it has become my favourite dining spot not only in Rome. It is only a short walk away from Piazza del Popolo or the Vatican. If you expect truly amazing flavours in a lovely cozy...More
