We used this restaurant twice out of three nights, first night we sat outside in February and had a genuine calzoni pizza, it was gorgeous and the following evening we sat inside and I had cannelloni and my wife had spaghetti bolognese and both were yummy.if you are staying near by try it out.

Like most restaurants in Rome, this is a tucked away (but easy to find) little place with lots of tables. The food here was great. We had bruschetta, pizza margherita and cacio e pepe (aka, the best mac and cheese you ever ate!). The service was quick, and the food came out hot and delicious. One thing about this place... More

We visited here in recommendation from our Hotel (Hotel Colosseum). The menu was vast, catering for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. The food was of good quality. However, the initial waitress was quite rude to us and the subsequent waiteress' face literally dropped when she found us to be English speakers. Would go again for food but would be prepared...

Food are so bad, spaghetti ale vongole so oily and fishy, it's disgusting. All other dishes are so salty and bad quality. Risotto is too undercooked, and 4 cheese risotto tastes like only blue cheese risotto. Waitress forgot to bring a dish, after one hour later, she refused us to cancel it, then 20 minutes later, 6 of us have... More

Some of the food here is just amazing. We specifically recommend the pasta gracie, house starter, ravioli spinach and cheese, roasted lamb and the lemon sorbet. Good service and so also. No bookings needed as it's a little off the tourist tracks.

We liked the food but the service could've been better. The waiter had to go ask if it was ok to split a dinner. 😒 Other than that the pasta carbonara was ok but the veil was great! Quiet atmosphere and great moscato wine!

Right around the corner from our hotel, we went there or first night in Rome with 10 of our family. They were nice, accommodating, and quick with service. Food was delicious, only the carbonara dish was underwhelming (bacon too big and hard to eat). Pizzas, pastas, steaks, and lasagna were fantastic. We came back for lunch 2 days later and... More

Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
