“Solid lunch in Trastavere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

We stopped in for an early lunch because it was raining hard, and we hoped to sit out the rain before exploring the neighborhood. The restaurant was empty (possibly not even open yet), but the staff welcomed us with open arms. We had no specific expectations, but we were delighted with our lunch. We started with a simple green salad, and then shared a roman-style artichoke. The artichoke was perfect... tender, lightly marinated and mildly seasoned, and so carefully trimmed that we ate everything in the plate-- even the stem. We followed up with a delicious pizza Bianca with fresh porcini mushrooms. A very solid meal in Trastavere: this is the kind of place where we might be regulars if we lived nearby. In other words, it's not a special occasion restaurant, but the service was good, the prices were reasonable, and the food hits the spot.

“Good pizzas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

We were a bit apprehensive about trying here after reading some negative reviews, though our hotel recommended it. When we arrived it was busy, mainly tourists and we had to wait for a while. Once seated service was efficient and we enjoyed a couple of woodfired pizzas.

“Pass on this one”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

This is not a tourist restaurant -- is a favorite of locals. The food was plentiful but not noteworthy. Seasoning was heavy and presentation was basic. Of the four Trastevere restaurants I tried, this was my least favorite.

“Good for lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Just up from the main street in Trastevere. In an are that has dozens of restaurants. Were looking for a fast - not too expensive lunch and this place did not disappoint.
Service was a little slow at first almost lie they were afraid to communicate with those that didn't speak Italian. I was about to leave when the waiter finally came over to us - then all was good.
They have very good Olives Ascolane, the Bruscheta was good and fresh, the green salad was sub par and the Pizza was a 6 out of 10.
Not bad value - not certain I would try it for dinner.
