Delicious dinner for two, or small groups in this intimate out of the way restaurant. We enjoyed bruschetta, risotto, gnocchi, tuna, wine, and fine service.

Great food and excellent flavours. The service was not intrusive and pleasant. The restaurant also has a very nice ambience inside, in addition to being more private and cosy.

The restaurant is located in a small street with only little traffic. We enjoyed the food and the friendly staff. Quite long waiting time for the starters, but that’s the only negative thing I can think of.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
