My teenagers and I went in for lunch, but we weren't overly hungry so we all opted for soups - minestrone and tortellini. Both were excellent and hearty. The staff was very friendly and accommodating even though they spoke little English and we spoke little...More

We loved this restaurant, it is family run and the food is amazing. Fresh and home cooked its simplicity is so appealing. We had the pork which was soft and flavoursome and cooked to perfection. A litre of good white or red wine is only...More

A must do for lunch. Food is good, regional. Perfect way to feel like you are a part of the busy life of Rome. Probably go back for dinner.

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
