Cosy restaurant not far from the Piazza del Popolo. It was frequented by locals which boded well. The service was attentive and patient as we dithered over choices. I went for the suckling pig which was astonishingly good. Everyone in our party of 8 loved their dishes. The wine is not cheap (they do not do house wine) but nor was it expensive compared to other restaurants.
I chose this restaurant based on reviews I had read, and everyone in my group loved it.
10/10

Nice reception, friendly staff. I had great pasta and meat. Wines were rather expensive though (for Italian standards). And I accepted some fresh strawberries for desert, without asking the price. 8 EUR for just a handful of strawberries is, surely, excessive. So always ask the price in advance.

Whatever about the food there are many other restaurants to choose from besides this one in the immediate area of Piazza del Popolo.
Being charged for four bottles of wine instead of two put a very sour note on the evening and another 48 Euro in the till had that got away with it !
Always check the bill !!

We followed the lonely planet recommendation and we do not regret it. It was a very good lunch with creative dishes and good service. Maitre gave us advice on what was best for the day and helped us to decide our meal. Definately recommend it.

Stumbled across this place on a very rainy afternoon. It was exactly what we needed! Warm and welcoming with a traditional feel. We sat downstairs in the "wine cave". Food was great along with the service - our waiter made recommendations and talked us through everything. He even gave us 2 limoncellos on the house. Left very full and happy
