Was there with a few friends for dinner. Only a small basket of bread between the 7 of us. However the staff was prompt to make amends. The trippa was tasty but slightly slimy. Amatriciana was good but not superb. I'd expect the guanciale to be a bit crisper. The tiramisù was very good.

We ate at Lo'steria a couple of times this year (2017) and have eaten there in the past. Its located off the main 'square' at Farnesina so the only passing traffic is the odd car or bicycle.

There are tables outside or inside (air conditioned). We tended to eat early (in Italian standards) so were often the only diners at the start, but others came as we were eating.

The waiting staff are attentive without being too intrusive and menu is very good - last year I had rabbit and it was delicious. This year veal and steak. The menu is varied and caters for vegetarians too. The meal accompaniments are always plentiful and piping hot (unless its a salad!). In most of the restaurants a mixed salad is actually a misnomer to us English people. It is really just mixed leaves - no tomatoes, onions or carrots etc (not a problem for me, I'm not a salad eater). Once again the main course is big enough that dessert wasn't taken (we went for Ice Cream at Mondi instead - the best: see my review of this establishment!). However perhaps we filled up on bread and breadsticks which are given automatically in most restaurants and of course we eat them!!

Looking forward to revisiting in 2018

Home made, real tasty food! Fried starters, pastas and meat balls are fabulous!!

Nice, relaxed brasserie type ambience and not touristy at all...

The locale was pleasant/inviting and we enjoyed the dinner there. We were there during one of the European cup games still quite pleasant. After 10 pm the whole area fills up with people so one may be well advised to finish up before.

The selection of plates reflected an effort to do something different and create unusual interpretations. Most of what we chose was quite interesting. A few things were not the most successful but then that often reflects individual tastes.

Very serviceminded staff and did their very best
Full house and got at table though we had no booking
Service with good recommandations of beers and wine according to our requests and choice of meals
Antipasti good
Porcini fettucini nice
Carbonara very al dente and almost not cooked enough
Salad unfortunately only leaves of rucola etc and could have been upgraded with just a little touch of shredded peccorino, fresh herbs or similar
