Had dinner here recently, with two teenagers and a gluten free diner. It was a random choice but no regrets. The food and wine were excellent and the waiter helpful. Very busy with locals, so a good sign.

Having travelled around Italy for the last 2 months I can say it was the worst food and wine that I have encountered. Average Rome prices. Appears all food was pre prepared and not fresh.

This place was recommended to us and I would say was an pretty average restaurant. As with quite of few places in Rome, the service isn't always with a smile but efficient enough. My husband enjoyed his veal, it was very tender. My pasta was fine, nothing to write home about but perhaps it was my choice. If you just... More

Visiting Rome, we randomly selected this restaurant for dinner on my birthday. Great service, great wine and the best gluten free pasta of my trip to Italy! I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The 3 of us had lunch there and enjoyed it very much. Including the bill afterwards. If you travel on a budget and still want fine food this is a place to go.

This is your typical neighborhood trattoria. The waiter greeted most guests by name, which gives you an idea of loyal customers. Service was very good indeed. Polite, efficient and knowledgeable. My wife and I shared polpo afettato (marinated slices of octopus) as a starter. This was excellent. She then had pasta con frutti di mare. When in countries like Italy,... More

The food on the menu is great but ask for the specials. We had porcini and ovuli mushroom well ahead of the mushroom season and " puntarelle" salad even though was out of season. The. " fiori di zucca" are wonderful, light and crispy with the right filling. But do not miss the typical Roman pastas they are great. So... More

Surely if you are in Rome you can skip it, not bad if you are in hurry with no other option! Although you feel the italian spirit in the place and the food was good but not as great as expected!

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
