I have been going to this family-run neighbourhood restaurant for many years and have never come away disappointed. I began going because it was near home, which turned out to be a hefty bit of luck.
Friendly but efficient staff, a welcoming interior for the winter and a cool patio for the summer months, great choice of fried or fresh starters (ranging from your classic straightforward supplì rice ball and tomato bruschetta to, for example, courgette flowers stuffed with cheese and dressed in salsa caprina), a wide range of very good, crisp, thin Roman pizzas, cooked in a wood-burning oven, excellent (and, atypically for a suburban Roman restaurant, inventive, fresh and regularly changed) pasta dishes - not just the usual pasta alla scogliera, penne all'arrabbiata, matriciana, etc., but much more characteristic stuff. I'm a vegetarian, but friends and family have told me that the meat and fish dishes are also excellent. To finish off, a succinct but well-chosen wine list suited to all pockets, delicious home-made desserts including at the moment a proper tiramisù, something that's getting harder to find as restaurants just buy bulk-produced ones, and a delicious 'deconstructed' Sicilian cannolo. Excellent price-to-quality ratio, and as I've said, a menu which allows for a very reasonably priced bruschetta, pizza and beer as well as a much more sophisticated full dinner.
I can say in all honesty that I've eaten in much more expensive restaurants with grand reputations in Rome, and have often spent a lot more and not eaten anywhere near as well.
The only downside is that it is a neighbourhood pizzeria in the suburbs of the city and therefore quite a long way from the town centre, but for those who find themselves in the south-east of Rome - I'd say you'd have trouble finding anywhere better!
