If you are around Aventino you can have a dinner in this restaurant, the food is average, but the place is nice. Anyway Roman tradition is well represented and revisited. Can go but not too often.

The menu choice was limited. The waiter then informed us of further choices which were unavailable. The pasta was undercooked irrespective of the 'al dente' excuse. I asked if the 'chicken' was breast meat. I was advised that it was. It was not. I made...More
