I had a wonderful dish of pasta with olive oil, garlic, and basil, but the bread and wine were just OK. The outdoor seating was nice on the sunny day we were there. Our waiter really pressured us to leave him a tip (always included in bill) so that was a bad ending to our meal. I would go back for the pasta and avoid this particular (balding) waiter.

Stay away from the tourist trap in the campo de fiori. Bad judgment call walking in to begin with as the place was not very busy on an otherwise bustling Sunday evening. House wine was terrible. Food was mediocre. Bread which was not request was charge but worst of all it was tasteless. Wife felt ill afterwards. Waiter was very pushy and tried to demand a tip at the end of the meal which is not customary in Italy. Stay away at all costs. On the bright my wife states the women bathroom was a sight to be seen. Lol.

We dined here for lunch on a weekday. We wanted to people watch.
Both the food and service were just okay.

We had a very good lunch in this restaurant. Food was a little heavy but service was good and room was very cozy.

If you go here you must try the carbonara! It was simply perfect, with the pasta really perfectly cooked (al dente!). The meat (veal) was good but not something I'd come back for it. Service was ok. The atmosphere is simple and traditional.
