It was pouring when we got here.. We went in with no expectations as it is a small no frills place but to our suprise the food was delicious. The house wine was good, the Ravioli with peanuts and gorgonzola sauce, the short pasta, the white beans everything was just amazing. It definitely seems like a place where the locals hang out so give it a shot if you are around the domus area.

We went to France, Spain and Italy for a month and had a lot of great meals, but this place stood out. We went there by chance because we were starving and it was near the apartment we had rented. We wound up going back 4 times. We never saw another tourist there and always ordered the daily special for 10 euros.

The ambience was nothing special, but the pasta ... oh my god ... we're from San Francisco which is not exactly chopped liver when it comes to cuisine, but we had never had pasta like this. Each bite exploded with flavor in a way that's impossible to describe.

We also had a lot of so-so meals in Italy, especially in touristy areas, but Casa di Viola was practically a religious experience.
