Small, tight fitting local neighbourhood Italian eatery. Homemade pasta is very good, smaller sized portions with lots of flavour. Family style conversations all around, some as loud and animated as my house. Knowledgeable staff, very attentive service. I took a taxi, parking would be an...More

Great atmosphere and service, casual (but not too casual). Amazing Caccio et pepe. A bit too much oil in the vegetables for my taste, but true to roman style of cooking.

The quality of food is excellent and the presentation is very good. But the service is very very average. You have many waiters bringing you food and beverages, etc.. The result - often your next course if forgotten to be placed, you can wait more...More
