Really Roman food. Good service, food excellent. Would definitely recommend. Looks a bit basic inside but it is very clean and staff cannot do enough for you.

My friend and I who are from America, but been integrating ourselves into the Italian culture for a month now, decided to come into this restaurant one night. It started with us being yelled at for coming in too early before they opened. We waited outside 10 minutes after they supposedly opened. We thought they were going to welcome us... More

Ate dinner here with my daughter on 27 January. We were staying in a small local B&B and the owners had a list of recommended local restaurants in the rooms. It's a very local restaurant and the waitress spoke a little English, however they provided menus in English which was a great help. All the other diners were Italian but... More

Not geared for tourists, only locals were there the night I came in. Prompt service, food delivered quickly. Ordered the fried artichoke, ox tail and roasted potatoes. Excellent choice. Portions were good, prices average, a good choice for dinner.

Came here for lunch on our first day in Rome. Traveling with my mom and was really hoping to start our trip with some good authentic Italian food. As soon as we walked in, the grey haired man gave us a look of disgust. Reading through other reviews, it seems we weren't the only ones that experienced this. Through the... More

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
