Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the worst pasta ever, I’ve honestly tasted way better truffle in even Switzerland and Melbourne . Pasta not seems to be handmade, truffle is very pale and very not fresh… Mushroom only like 3 small pieces? Waiters are nor friendly. Tables are extremely...small. Don’t go.More

I am not sure why this restaurant receives such glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. It is pleasant enough from the point of view of service…nothing too personal or friendly..perfunctory at best. The food would best be described as average. Steak Tartare ..minced beef with none...of the ingredients one would expect..tasteless truffles don’t help. Spaghetti with clams equally lacking in flavour. I would avoid and take other recommendations for more satisfying fare.More

Wonderful food! We actually stayed an extra night so we could eat here after we got off our cruise! We don't recall how we found this small, but great restaurant over 5 years ago, but we didn't forget how amazing the truffle dishes were!

We loved the food so much we ate here twice - for lunch and for dinner (although not on the same day) and given the choice in Rome, that's saying something. It helped that our Airbnb was on the same street. The service was attentive...and charming but it was the food that stole the show. The restaurant itself is quite small and although elegantly fitted out with great crockery and linen, isn't in the sweetest spot given how amazing some of the restaurant locations in Rome can be. But the food was absolutely delicious. Prices werent crazy and compared to the UK, for the quality and the service you receive, really good value for money. Between us we managed to get through amazing Fettucine, spaghetti alla amatriciana, steak, truffles and carbonara. The tiramisu was great as well.More

I preferred a table on left hand side of restaurant but we got right hand albeit downstairs seems to be the least preferred. With the door open, a fan on and a dehumidifier on, this did nothing to aid atmosphere. The waiter, whilst helpful enough,...looked like he'd rather be anywhere else on the planet! We had smoked salmon and aubergine parmigiano to start and we enjoyed. I then had fillet steak in cream peppercorn sauce. This was decent but v bloody leaking into cream sauce (not lovely results) probably because it hadn't rested. Oven potatoes were heated up and a bit dry. My husband had oven baked lamb which he enjoyed. The tiramisu was v good. We had the red wine second on menu as no Primitive and it was v pleasant. At €117 in total it was decent value for money.More

The best risotto we had in Italy. Will definitely come back on our next trip to Rome. The service is wonderful and the truffle dishes with a test we will remember forever.

Absolutely delicious- even if you don’t like truffle, the food is incredible! We sat outside as the sun was setting, and the lights and ambiance made for such a romantic evening. Great service, too! Definitely make reservations.

It's nice, but it's always a bit not enough. The pasta is good, but not great, it's like they don't put enough cheese or spices. We had fettuccine with truffles, pasta with lobster and focacca. All the same - not enough cheese and spices. It's...nice, but it's always a bit not enough. Home wine and sea bass carpacco were good. Deserts not worth the calories at all. Tiramissu is just destroyed by cacao powder. The bill was 130 for two.More

We stumbled across this location and we’re able to get last minute reservations. I am so GLAD we did. The first night we had cacio e pepe and carbonara. My husband said it was the best carbonara he had ever had. I ordered the tiramisu....It was so creamy and delicate. Best tiramisu I found in Italy to this point.service was great too! We couldn’t stop thinking about this dinner so we were able to get reservations a week later when we returned to Rome. I had to try their specialty (truffle pasta) and my husband of course got carbonara again. It was equally as amazing as the first time. We finished it off with the tiramisu again. I can’t stop thinking about it! This is a gem of a restaurant hidden right away from some popular spots! Highly recommend.More

We had the Spaghetti Amitriciana and Lobster Tagliolini, and both were excellent. The lobster tagliolini was especially good. We had to wait a little before our order was taken, but apart from that, we had a great time. The staff were lovely and accommodating, and...schooled me on how to say Amitriciana!More
