Fried artichoke was delicious. So was the lamb. Rest of meal was good also. Outside chairs could have been better. Overall good restaurant.

Nice atmosphere but there's a lack of organization. Food is very typical and good, but nothing special. Make sure to order the right dishes if you stop there (Pajata or Trippa are very good). Prices a little above what we expected. Generally, a very nice...traditional place but probably our expectations were too high.More

We stumbled upon a queue outside this little restaurant in the Jewish Ghetto area. Put our name on the list for a table and came back an hour later. We were quickly taken into this tiny, busy but fun room, and a minute later were...joined by three ‘strangers’ who became instant friends. To start we shared twice cooked artichoke (so good!) and a zucchini salad with anchovy, garlic & olive oil (delicious!). Next a fettuccine cacio e pepe (fantastic!) and grilled lamb with lemon (yum!). Too full for desert but they looked good as well. If you’re after an authentic, local experience this is for you.More

Delicious, simple and seasonal fair at is best. Tiny space in the Ghetto one of the only typical restaurants in this area. Food is excellent ideal for lunch Absolutely loved the fried artichoke and meatballs and be sure to leave space for dessert

There are places like that everywhere in the world, small, cahotic, famous with good down to earth and culture food. Don't tell me the service is rough. When you go to see a big artist you don't go to ear him saying you are a...wonderfull or talented audience ! There is the scenery, the atmosphere and the food. A lot to enjoy ! Bon appétit !More

Back again after a year to my favorite restaurant in Rome and nothing has changed. Food is fantastic and a terrific rustic atmosphere. Dessert was absolutely delicious.

Wе went for lunch inspired by reviews at tripadvisor.We had very cold reception by the waitress! Unacceptable behavior and serving of the food! We felt like someone who is not welcome but than we observed the same with other clients. They should absolutly change the...staff! The restaurant is super tight and you don't have air to respire! We hoped at least that the food will be delicious, but it was a huge disappointment. We ordered the famous carciofi alla giudia -they were extremely fried with the taste of burnt.Fettuccine pomodoro e basilico nothing to worth same for Fettuccine cacio pepe e ricotta. No comment for the wine. From desserts teramisu was the worst that I ever had! profiteroles very very dry with no taste! Honestly, there are restaurants which are much more cheaper and with wonderful food and service! We will never return to this one.More

Arrived for lunch on a cold, rainy day. Was seated right away though I was alone. A few minutes later a man was seated opposite me at the table next to mine. I enjoyed linguine cacio e pepe and an artichoke Romano (marinated). Though they...are known for their fried artichoke, I am just trying to keep away from fried ( my neighbor got it though). Was served within 2 minutes! Food was excellent and rustic. A real gem. Refreshing that they only speak Italian! You are in Italy after all. Service was efficient and friendly. Lunch with wine was 25€More

I came here for a lunch alone, I got seated in a table with 4 seats, and I wanted to put my bag on the chair next to me. The waitress started to almost shout in Italian very rudely that my table is there not...the one next to me. In the restaurant there was no one other than me, and then a couple came and she wanted to seat them next to me at the same table. They didn’t want to sit there obviously because there was no one besides us but they said that in 10 minutes the restaurant will be full, which obviously didn’t happen. The waitress was outrageously rude, I never experience such bad service in my life. The food was okay but it’s not worth it, if you want a decent dining experience. In conclusion DO NOT come here.More
