we were a table of 20 people, with quite a few kids, but still we weren't the noisiest in the place.
Can't tell how many people can fit in this restaurant but it's huge.
Large parking so no issue there.
not easy to find as we didn't see any sign along the road.
Foodwise, there was a very nice selection of antipasti (starters, of which they offered to serve an assortment so we could have a taste of may things).
1st dish: pasta or risotto (excellent)
2nd dish: the fiorentina was excellent (meat). pizzas also delicious.
dessert, also a nice choice (icecreams and cakes)
not really suitable for romantic evening, but definitely still worth a visit.
service was friendly and efficient

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Rome. It's not in a touristy area, and I wouldn't recommend trying to get here on public transportation, but it's got two things that we've rarely seen here - off street parking, and a big play area for the kids!

The food is standard local Italian, no better or worse than other food. Their bruschetta is pretty good, but be aware of what season you're in, and pick your toppings accordingly.

To be honest, this is a good place to take your family, and let the kids play while the adults talk. There's a good age range of kids, and there are always a couple of soccer balls being kicked around. There are swingsets, slides, and play houses for the kids, all in an astro-turfed area.

Both indoor and outdoor seating are available, with huge umbrellas covering the entire outside.

Parking is incredibly convenient, and there have only been a couple of times when the lot got full. As you're leaving, though... there's usually a gentleman who collects a euro for parking. We're pretty sure he's affiliated with the restaurant, but haven't confirmed it.

A small number of servers speak English, most speak only Italian.
