I tried this restaurant this evening a my second (perhaps, wrong) option for the night. I was planning to hike my way to another restaurant when I felt quite tired walking farther and check for an interesting restaurant nearby. This restaurant has the old roman feel. Not very bid dining hall, slabs of ham and salsice hanging above the counter, stack of good wine selection on display, etc. Since it's Friday, Spaghetti alle vongole was my first choice. Friday is the usual seafood day in Rome, when fresh sea produce are delivered into the city. The pasta plate was not a disappointment, but nothing special too. From there all went downhill. I asked for trippa alla romana, which was in their menu list, and they did not have it. I asked for ossobucco, which was also in their list and, again they did not have it. I almost gave up by then and wanted to ask for the bill, but the lad was able to convince me to try one of the compromise plate. She described it so well, but the moment they brought the plate on my table, I knew it was a mistake ordering it. It was an ordinary piece of breaded chicken meat fried dry.
Perhaps, this restaurant is better visited during the fall and winter. The lady waitress told me that the offerings are normally complete during the winter since their menu is primarily for the cold weather. Tonight was a disappointment, but I may perhaps drop by again in November. For now, better bring your precious euro somewhere else.
