We stumbled across this ristorante/enoteca, right at the bottom of the often-filmed Borgia Stairway, on a rainy weekday afternoon after leaving the Basilica of St. Peter in Chains. Tables were full inside, but we were cheerfully seated outside, sheltered under the sidewalk awning, where we received excellent service and an outstanding Tonnarelli Cacio e Pepe - my new favorite pasta dish!

Food was good, service great. A bit high prices, but no ”hidden fees” and well worth the money, recommended!

We order the fettuccini Alfredo, fries, and cappuccinos. The fettuccini was lacking in flavor, in our opinions. Fries were nice and fresh. The cappuccinos was pretty good, they added a chocolate swirl on top to sweeten it a bit for us, which helped with how strong the cappuccinos have been in Italy. The service wasn’t all that great. We were seated right away but it took them about 15 minutes to come take our order- they weren’t even busy. Food was delivered promptly but it took them another 15 to bring us our check after we were done- they were getting ready to close so they seemed much more focused on that. The receipt does highlight that “tip isn’t included” in check today.

Beautiful decor but sadly very average food. - For a starter I had Buffalo mozzarella with ham. The mozarella was resting on some rather tired salat leaves and was very, very cold as if it had been defrosted. Ham was good though. Gnoccis were average, grilled vegetables okay. Booked through the Fork and received 40 % discount. Will not come back.
