“Don't go alone at noon - You'll get sent away”

The title says it all. They want full tables. Go alone and not only will you get harsh looks but you'll get told "There are already a lot of people waiting. You should go someplace else".

You don't keep returning customers with that kind of arrogant behavior.

Nice people, good hospitality, fairly fast service, good selection of wine and beer.
They offer Matriciana, Artichokes (alla Giudia and boiled), melanzane, coda and some other Roman cuisine dishes.

The images of the 1953 movie "Vacanze Romane" with Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn are just about on every available wall (hence the name of the restaurant).

Their prices at noon are steep (8 Euros for a first course as opposed to Euros 5 or 6 in most other places in the neighborhood).
The pasta is fine, "al dente" and abundant.
Still the price differential for a lunch can be discouraging.
Dinner is OK and prices are more in line with comparable locations.
Good service.

The owner is always checking to make sure that patrons are happy and that all is well.
In these troubled times part of the competitive edge is going to be accurate and fast service.

I can't give them "Excellent" as a rating because they barely fit into the Very Good category. As such though it is worth returning to.
Lunch, dinner, reunions with friends,family or colleagues.
Booking in the evening is a good idea. At noon they seem to always be able to find a table.
