It used to be a very pricey restaurant with good food and vibes. Now it's only pricey.
Last experience was awful: although the restaurant was not fully booked we were offered a crappy table. But the most negative trait was that we were so obviously 'pushed' to order the highest priced dishes, and pushed to eat this or that, continuously, with a smiley face but still with commercial doggedness. We did not appreciate it

Ovviamente se le altre volte e' stato bene.......la prima volta che a suo
dire l'esperienza non sia stata positiva, non ha esitato a massacrare il
nostro lavoro, tacendo invece quando tutto andava bene.....(non sarà perché
questa volta ha pagato lei il conto?!)
Mi dispiace che abbia scambiato il modo professionale e gentile del
cameriere al fine di darle un consiglio e di fornire un servizio di
assistenza, per un comportamento finalizzato a farla spendere....le assicuro
che non è così il personale a voce elenca tutte le pietanze che compongono
il menù, menù che poteva chiedere se avesse avuto l'impressione che ha
descritto.
Poteva inoltre chiedere un altro tavolo se quello assegnato non era stato di
suo gradimento, avrei provveduto a dargliene un altro.....
Considero infine la sua recensione inutile non obbiettiva ne tantomeno costruttiva, perché oltre al tavolo non gradito e al comportamento del cameriere, che le ripeto e' solo una sua fantasia dal punto di vista culinario non ha fornito nessuna informazione utile a chi ci legge che rileverà sicuramente il suo sentimento di frustrazione per aver pagato un conto da lei considerato troppo alto scrivendo questa recensione con l'unico scopo di colpire il più duramente possibile come rappresaglia, assegnandoci il minimo punteggio.(Molto scorretto)

Make sure you do not eat during the day if you come here for dinner. Food is excellent and plates abundant.
Reservation required, it gets crowded and sometimes the service is not as excellent as the food...

Going around Grottaferrata at lunch time, my wife and I found this restaurant and decided to try.
From the entrance we could see a very traditional and cozy place. The meal was fantastic and service was delightful, very friend and in a good pace. They also have an inn that I would like to try in another visit to the area.

This is a fantastic typical italian restaurant. Complimentary starter was superb as was my partners main , lamb chops. Only disappointment was my slightly bland pasta dish. Overall though well worth the visit
