In a small residential area is located this fantastic restaurant. It is buzzing. The restaurant opens at 8 and by 9 it is full. The menu is written in chalk on boards across the restaurant walls. For those of us non Italian this was not a problem as our waiter explained everything to us several times over in different ways.... More

My wife and I were referred to this restuarant by our B & B host at the Casa Eli Roma. Great choice! The staff at the restaurant were friendly and really attentive. We speak really poor italian so they were really accomodating for those limited to english. The day's menu is explained in detail to you by the waiter and... More

Nice food and drink. Busy restaurant which was visited on a Friday night. Bit disappointed that a veal dish with bacon was not available from quite a small menu. Next choice was a tasty cut of beef with truffle. The chips were not well cooked. Loved the atmosphere. Really tasty crisps delivered to the table and are made in house.... More

It was the last night of our 4 night stay in Rome, and we wanted something nice, easy, and nearby to our stay. We were very happy to find this gem of a restaurant. They really go to the top in regards to service as our waiter helped us with a translation of the menu, was patient with our questions,... More

We were really impressed with this restaurant that sits in a small shopping center on a busy road. Our server, Fabio, was extremely patient with our poor Italian and described the menu in great detail needing to repeat several items. However, it was all about the FOOD that makes this place so special. We found the various plates had the... More

We had the best meal of our time in Italy here. Our Italian is not as good as it should be and the servers were patient and helpful with the menu. They treated us with wonderful homemade Limoncello at the end of the meal. Tutto Buono!!

Our B&B host suggested this restaurant to us and made the reservation for 8 p.m. Although the menu was entirely in Italian, one of the waiters who spoke extraordinary English asked what we liked and explained the various dishes in great detail. We ate off the express menu (written on the chalkboard) and were not disappointed. Our B&B host said... More

I saw this restaurant for years but i never went there. Today I tried and it was simply wonderful. Great design of interior, really fast service and gentle waiters. Food was delicious also if quite expensive. I will be back for sure soon.

Four of us had dinner here on the recommendation of the owner of our B&B who made the reservation for us. This was an interesting local restaurant in Monteverde Nuovo district of Rome. There was a full menu but the interesting thing was the large selection of daily specials. Although the menus were entirely in Italian and the restaurant staff... More

...and in my opinion that is a very good thing. We were staying in a b&b within walking distance and visited on a Thursday night after a flight in from London so by the time we arrived it was 10pm ... not late in Italian terms but I was still a little surprised that it was packed. And best of... More
