Had spaghetti vongole here and it was priced under 10euros.. so, cheap. It was better than the more expensive ones I’ve tried. Many ppl were ordering the pizzas .. they looked good but I didn’t have it myself. I would come back!

Family owned restaurant. Food was good, prices ok, but didn't still my heart. Pizza - decent, good tomato sauce. Gnocchi were not enough soft, too insipid. Maybe some greens will help this dish. Turkey wiht vegetables - really good meat! Tasty and juicy. But vegetables...More

I have been going to Porta Castello for years when in Rome. Something has changed at this restaurant and not for the better. The food was poor and the service was off. It was a huge disappointment and they have lost interest in providing good...More
