Having seen the amount of positive trip advisor reviews, my family and I decided to visit here. Frankly the menu choice was scarce, and when the food arrived, it was simply mediocre. As the rest of my family is vegetarian, we visit Italy and eat...More

They don't take reservation , always full but they will find a place for you.. a bit disappointed from the selection but the simple pepper and cheese pasta was great. Lovely limoncello for the finish. Another friend loved the steak. Recommend

Great service! We needed a table for three. The host informed us of a 5 minute Wait, and gave us a complimentary small sample of wine while we waited. Service was prompt and was most likely the best Italian food we are while in Italy.

One of the best Italian restaurants we got to try. Atmosphere is cosy and relaxing. Pizzas and lasagnas were delicious. Staff was very proactive and friendly, notably to our young children. Despite the long queue forming outside, the staff does not push you to finish...More

The overall experience at this place was amazing! There was a wait time since it was a Saturday night so they were giving out mimosas and food while people waited. I was with my mom and everything we ordered was delicious. I recommend the búfala...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa

Not sure if you can book. We arrived early and had no problem, but we did see long queues on busy nights later in the evening. Regardless, well worth either the early arrival or queue if you like to eat later...

If you know you're going ahead of time, try to make a reservation. But depending what time you go, there may not be a line. We went around 6pm and were seated promptly.
