Jonny served us our drinks and provided us with nuts and crisps. Jonny shows us inside as we had taken an interest in the hams which were hanging over the Deli counter, introduced us to the chefs and the lady owner Nicola. We only had drinks but it was fun and friendly.

Seemed like the typically nice "hole-in-the-wall" local restaurant. Alas: bland food, pushy waitress and much upselling. Look somewhere else for good food.

Unacceptable. I am a chef and Italian cuisine is my favorite one to eat and cook and this is the worst food I have ever eaten. Too expensive for the worst quality. DON'T GO

Awful food, canned and reheated pasta sauce, rude waiter, overpriced wine and a RIP OFF. Do not ever visit this travesty of a restuarant.

Because of the rain n no internet I just tried by luck. It was a bad luck. Server was friendly but not very professional. Least Italian-like food I've ever had in Italy.

The cod (baccalà) was recommended by the waitress. Very small piece of fish. We ordered vegetables for two - these consisted of three small strips of zucchini, three slices of aubergine and a few strips of red pepper - for this we were charged €8. Outrageous. After the meal I heard two other couples who had eaten there complain about... More

Rude intrusive waiter. No atmosphere. Overpriced. Pushy service trying to upsell. Additional charge of one euro per person to sit at a table in the restaurant. Stodgy flavourless carbonara. Watery tasteless prawn and mushroom pasta. Inauthentic. Cold restaurant and food. Made us feel ill afterwards. Worst restaurant in Rome. Will not return.

We were here on a quiet Sunday evening. The waiter was friendly, although a bit keen to up sell. We had pasta, which was tasty enough, and the glass of wine was fine too. Priced as expected so close to the Forum and Colosseum

While walking north from the coliseum, we stopped by this eatery for a late lunch. Mostly Italian patrons were seated outside so we joined them. It was a small menu but we wanted something small to share. My wife ordered the fettuccine alfredo which she considers the best iteration she's ever had. Delicious homemade noodles and a rich creamy sauce.... More

Wait staff was lovely but food was okay at best and way overpriced. Meatballs were horrible. Would not recommend.
