IF you want Chic , Expensive Decor and fine wines...........go elsewhere ! If you are looking for a fun meal with an unusual twist , good basic food with some added flavour , good service , adequate surroundings and not a 'tourist' only place.............then you will find it here.

Basic decor , small pizza's , other delicacies , Nutella desserts , good beer........friendly staff , busy but not chaotic...........well worth the value for money. We spend € 30 for the two and came out full !!!

Try it..............I would be happy to join you !!!!

Came here to eat before we went to the bar scene in the Testaccio area. Didn't know the area well, but the place was packed on a Saturday night, and the menu looked good, so we decided to try it. Wanted to sit outside, but there weren't any tables available (good sign). Looked like the restaurant was mainly filled with locals. We sat inside, and was happy to see that they had menus in both Italian and English. We got a potato appetizer and a couple of small pizzas to eat. Delicious!!! The menu looked a little different than some of the typical we've seen, which was nice. We got a dish with a large variety of fruit and both nutella and vanilla cream as dipping sauces. So good! Have been to many restaurants while in Italy, and haven't seen that on any of the dessert menus. Would highly recommend this place.

A decent place in Testaccio -- a bit hard to find, snuggled between other restaurants. Plus for outdoor seating with heating.

You go here for pizza. They have other starters and small dishes, and several kinds of pizzas -- smaller pizzas (pizzette), rolled-up pizzas et cetera.

Service informal but ok. Prices were very good.

Would I come again? Maybe, though I won't be a regular -- nothing very special about this place.

Evening meal, table of 9 but we still had great service. The quality of the food, and pizza in particular, was excellent. We were there on a Friday night and by the time we left the place was totally packed - a good sign - so if you want to eat from 9pm onwards, suggest you book. Just under ?30 a head for a substantial meal including several beers.
