Recommended by a friend who lives in northern Italy and not disappointed. Set in a tiny little square next to a church, it is a classic back street Rome location. The pasta is homemade and what we had was very, very good. Two specials and I had the rigatoni with lemon and sea bass, very fresh tasting and delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful, including selecting a good Italian wine at a reasonable price. Not easy to find, even with Google maps, but part of the charm - and in fact not far from Piazza Navona, where you can go for more buzz if that is what you want after dinner.

Our first of four nights in Rome, and our hotel recommended this out of the way spot. What a wonderful meal! First of all, we were the only customers inside and were made to feel quite special by the helpful, attentive hostess and server. She engaged us in wonderful conversation and made us feel part of the family. Our mixed green salads were incredibly fresh - the tomatoes and lettuces had a just-picked taste. My husband's margherita pizza was crisp and flavorful. But the piece de resistance was my pasta all gricia ... THE BEST I've ever had anywhere in Rome. We will definitely return on our next trip to Rome.

A small and intimate location with very personable service and excellent food. Dine here once and they will remember you when you next visit. Enjoy a fine Roman meal with locals, celebrities and other tourists alike.

This was our second time eating here over the years. It’s minutes away from piazza Navona. You get away from all of the crowds and can dine in a small family owned restaurant with great food. The burrata is delicious as a starter. My wife and son has the lasagna which was the best they had our our trip. I had mussels which were delicious. If you want great food at a reasonable price off the beaten path this is a great place to go.
