This is definitely one of Rome's hidden gems. Great authentic food with lovey hand written menus. Don't expect any help with the Italian menu though! The wait staff are a little edgy but this is part of the charm. Fine dining it isn't but for a great time and something a bit different it is perfect. Have the Cacio e... More

It's better to book in advance (before 1pm) or you might be lucky after 2pm (not necessarily though). If you are not in a rush, the wait is worth it!!! We had a problem with the menu since we don't speak Italian and we had hard time reading the handwriting. However, the service is nice and friendly, you can point... More

Very small place. Pretty difficult to find. Look for the red curtain hiding s small doorway in the side of the square. Once inside, we were greeted and given a table immediately. The menu was hand scrawled in Italian and we were completely lost. There was one other group in the restaurant who looked to be local. The waitress came... More

I had lunch with my wife and mother in january. The food was reasonable but not special. The staff was rude and didn't care at all about the customers, just throw the stuff in our table and were annoyed every time we asked for a recommendation or question. I was truly dissapointed. The place looks typical and cute with all... More

The menu is entirely in Italian and reminds me of my Nonna's food. After spending a week in Rome dining out for lunch and dinner every day, this restaurant really hit the spot. Until dining here, I was yet to have authentic italian food that I hadn't been able to find outside my family's home. The fried artichoke was superb,... More

Don't go for the food - it's bland and mediocre. You and your clothes will leave the restaurant smelling like a deep fryer. The service is not overtly rude - they're just purposefully not friendly. Why do people go here? Because someone said it was a typically Roman experience. It's not. It's just terrible.

Dreadful! Oily fried artichokes, bland buffalo mozzarella; awful (!!) fettuccine cacio e pepe. Quite possibly the worst meal I had in Rome (and there were a lot of bad meals!)

If you didn't know better, you wouldn't go in. But once inside, the food is local, genuine, first class and not overpriced. The space is cramped and noise level high at lunch but worth every second. An experience not to be missed when in Rome.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
