Found this place on TripAdvisor. It had a lovely atmosphere when we walked in, there was a singer/band which we really enjoyed. The food was superb and we really enjoyed it and was well worth the money.

We had a delicious pizza that they were happy for us to share. This has not always been our experience in Rome. The service was excellent and the atmosphere ambient. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and would visit again

Yes it parked at the street in front to let us all out, went away and parked somewhere else, so it won't be any problem for those who can't walk very far
