“Great find!”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

While looking for another restaurant, one of the waiters spotted our confusion and helped us with directions from his cellphone. We were so far off the path, and the helpful gesture was so appreciated, that we decided to remain for dinner. What a great decision! The Caprese salad had fresh, beautiful tomatoes and a generous amount of mozzarella. My husband loved his veal dish, and my pasta was delicious. Add a recommended Sicilian wine, and it added up to a delightful meal. The outdoor view was not particularly scenic, but the food made the evening! I hope to return someday!

“Best kept gastronomic secret in Rome”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

Great novelty in town, managed and operated personally by its owners Paola & Filippo, where fresh is a priority and quality a must !
A unique picturesque italian family restaurant just a couple of blocks away from crowded Piazza Navona, in Piazza Pollarola, a few steps crossing Corso V. Emanuele, and with better prices than most touristic sites.
Not to miss if you want real ittalian experience, that will leave you with a smile, wanting to go back. Enjoy !

“Great service and good food”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

The waiter was very friendly and the food was good. A good place for a risotto or a pasta, reasonably priced and above average quality. Recommended for lunch.

“Definitely one of the best meals we had in Rome”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

We used trip advisor during our stay in Rome and never had a bad meal but this restaurant was definitely one of the best meals we had. We had a meal here on our last day and had we discovered this place earlier then we would definitely have returned. The service was great, as we passed and checked the menu the waiter/owner came over to briefly explain the some of the food but then left us to it (which is nice and as at other places the waiters pester to try to get you in to their restaurant). The menu was good and the food was great. Not too expensive and good portion size! There are a lot of restaurants in Piazza Campo de'Fiori, head for this one!

“Nice place and nice cuisine”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Got here by accident. Nice outdoor seating. Very good cuisine. They don't spare cheese on the pizza. Very delicious "diavolo" pizza and "quatro fromage". Service is very good.
