Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Classic, understated fantastic dining. Friendly, helpful staff serving great food. Not cheap, but great value. Catering for locals not tourists, but the love of food shines through.

Good food and kind people. Most of the other guests were Italian. Ask your waiter for suggestions, they will guide you to some great options.

Excellent food. Some of the best cuisine we found in Rome - not just the usual tourist stuff. This place serves great pizza and pastas and all the classics but also has a wonderful broader menu with lovely fish and meat dishes and a beautiful...array of wines. Service was warm and friendly. Nice to sit outside when weather is mild, but inside is also cosyMore

I don’t remember how we came to find this place before our trip, but I am so glad we did and that we made a reservation. We ended up having our single favorite dish of a 10 night trip here, their Carbonara. Other dishes looked...good too but I will be thinking about the carbonara from here for a long time!More

Our family of 3 ate here for dinner. We had a booking which was just as well as it was very busy. Initially our server was very efficient and friendly. My husband and son's pizzas came very quickly but it took 25 minutes for my...pasta to arrive by which time the pizzas were all but devoured. I didn't order a complicated dish - it was cacio e pepe so I couldn't understand the delay. I caught the server's eye a few times but they just smiled and said it was on the way. When it did finally arrive it was disappointing as it was quite salty. The pizzas were very good though so 2 out of 3 ain't bad.More

Meh - average food, below average hospitality and service, but above average prices. Why some places like this insist on growling about making reservations yet are happy to seat you but not make you feel welcome - I don’t get it, say yes or no...and if it’s yes, show some hospitality. For a place with €3800 bottles of wine on the menu and plastic chairs and €14 pizzas - I think they’ve become unsure about who’s money they want. Our waiter had some pride in his job, displaying some hospitality and service standards, but the rest of the place let him down.More

We made a reservation since there was 8 of us in our party. We were seated outside at the farthest place from the restaurant. The table next to us who was seated after us got their bottle of wine before us. They also were asked...if they wanted bread - we were never offered. Food was average. Cacio e pepe was good. Overall disappointed based on recommendations and reviews.More

The tastiest pasta carbonara I have ever eaten - melt in the mouth with every mouthful! Service not as good as the pasta dish and made our evening less than 5/5 - we were waiting fifteen minutes after being seated before even being shown a...menu … however, when we were ready to pay, the owner/manager couldn’t have been speedier to take our payment! Overall - delicious food, but the service is needing some improvement.More

We ate dinner here our first night in Rome. The food and service was average. Our waitress was very nice, but the host was not friendly and left us standing there close to 5 minutes before even acknowledging and finally seating us. We were sat...outside on the small street that was so narrow you were terrified of being hit by a car mirror every time a car went by. We sat the kids on the inside for fear of being hit. The food was ok but nothing stand out. My 5 year old niece liked her roasted octopus. The prosciutto with mozzarella was ok, but the prosciutto was dry and tough. The carbonara was not good at all. The sliced roast beef tasted like warmed sliced deli meat which was odd for a dinner dish. The positives were the roasted octopus, tortelli with black truffle, and the roasted potatoes for a side dish. Overall, there are way better restaurants in Rome for sure.More
