We had a fantastic dinner with a starter, pizza/pasta, dessert and beverages for a very good price. Our tip: try the tiramisu with nutella, it was the best we‘ve ever had!!

After a long day walking round Rome we were really happy to find this restaurant (using trip advisor). The service and food were really good. A nice family run restaurant with amazing food. Both the starters and main course we really enjoyed. The restaurant was...busy with a friendly atmosphere.More

I tried the marinara pizza which was nice but my highlight was the “pasta of the day.” It was freshly made spaghetti and had a strong garlic flavour, it was really delicious. The staff were also very friendly. Highly recommend!

I visited this place with my mom, the service was impeccable and they were very nice. And the food was impeccable, fresh and delicious. It was the best restaurant in the area for us in terms of value for money.

Came to Italy for the weekend, visited many restaurants and the food wasn’t great. Came across this restaurant and WOW. The food is amazing. From walking through the door to leaving service was 100%. The waitress ombretta is fantastic. And the food is to die...for, I’ve never experienced food like I have tonight (Sunday 11th December 2021) I strongly advice you to try this place you won’t be disappointed. WOW WOW WOW Will be returning again. Thankyou for your service porta castelloMore

We loved this restaurant! the food was delicious, the service was friendly and efficient, and it certainly didn't have that 'touristic feel' that we like to avoid when possible. We highly recommend it

Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent

I did not book when I visited the restaurant. I also checked the The Fork and I could not see an on-line booking capability. Perhaps give them a call?
