Authentic dishes, fresh seafood. Excellent service. Tried the house special sea bass.. I usually don't like fish but it was quite tasty.

“Not bad, not amazing”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Would eat here again but wouldn't outright recommend it to anyone. Tasty pasta, decent prices, just nothing to write home about

“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 !
