The food was fantastic. Our table tried several dishes they had to offer and all of them where better than the next. Make sure to save room for the Tiramisu, it was so good we ordered a second.

Very typical italian hosteria, serving good variety Of pasta and meat.
Ingredients are traditional, with taste.
I strongly suggest Abbacchio alla romana, and carciofi as vegetables.
A tasty tiramisù homeMade, to finish.
Price around 30/35 eu X person.

Not even me, a foodie and fun of my italian and roman cuisine, I knew this restaurant. Thanks to friends and family I had a full immersion in a the true Roman cuisine, with the fundamental dishes that must be tried once in a lifetime ( and hopefully more!)

Menu is usual but has hidden surprises. New clients are a bit penalized, but that's how Italy works. All in all, food was great, value/quality was awesome, waiting time was reasonable and atmosphere too was nice. Only let down was they made 13 min to bring as the bill. Things happens sometimes. Wasn't even mad, very satisfied, would go again.

Thank Panagiotis Niko... P
