“Beautiful experience! Antonio is an adorable waiter!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Everything was amazing! Antonio was the best waiter we ever had. His charme, his sensibility, his touch. He was awesome. I think that without that guy the restaurant will close. I can remember his blue eyes, when i was in front of the bathroom he opened the door kissing my hand. Truly awesome experience. I'm a 28yo Swedish model and i fell in love with the most sexy, adorable waiter in the whole world.

Thanks Antonio to made it happen!

“Disappointing experience ”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Executive Summary

Pros - Unique decor (dining room is a cave)

Cons - Inhospitable service , food was over salted

Unfortunately I had a pretty poor lunch experience here, the waiter seemed to be in a bad mood, even before we arrived, as the next table was also commenting on the hostile service. Food on this occasion was over salted. Bit of a shame as clearly the restaurant is better than this.

Tip - Perhaps dinner is better.

“Antonio and Sara are awesome !!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Last night was the most wonderful family dining experience we have had, not only in Rome, but probably ever. The view from the terrace was beautiful, the food perfect but the service from Antonia and Sara was incredible ! Words cannot express our gratitude for the way they treated us. Truly amazing. They made us feel like intimate family. It will absolutely be the first stop we make in Rome the next time we visit. Highly recommended. Reservations a must as it's a popular restaurant among Testaccio locals.

“Food and Service .....5 Star!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We loved this restaurant. It is visited more so by local Romans than tourists and not a lot of english is spoken. However, the food was over the top good and our service was the best of our 18 day trip. Ask for Antonio when you visit! He was one of the highlights of our trip to Rome. We loved the ravioli and cod. Will be back to visit whenever in Rome!
