    We enjoyed the food very much and the restaurant was comfortable and cozy. Unfortunately the live music was extremely loud and we could barely talk. We were not planning to hear a concert, we would have preferred to eat in a quiet restaurant.

    we visit the Restaurant once a year, if we are in Rome... is a really a good adress to enjoy a nice evening in Rome.Not central but not far from the City. Not the cheapest, but for the offered quality really a good Service, Food and Drinks... They have always some daily house Specials, and we enjoy always our stay in this Restaurant. See You next Year :-)

    Even our gluten free vegetarian loved the food, great staff, great food, great fun!! The music was a nice extra and grandma hates everything but loved the bolognese.

    Great fish special with grill sea bass and mussels. Nice atmosphere, no more than 18 guests, so plenty of attention if you want otherwise enjoy a traditional Italian meal (don’t feel rushed). Third time there.

    The waiter was way too aggressive and trying too hard to upsell. He brought a bottle of still water without asking us. The kitchen failed to follow our instructions on cooking the fish we ordered. The food was just okay. The music was too loud.

    I decided to check out this recipe based on the high reviews on multiple spots. I made a reservation for 2 on thefork, assuming they would be busy, and headed over. When we arrived, we had to wait for a table, despite there being multiple open tables. Once seated, my sister and I were handed menus. We ordered and were talked up to order fresh pasta. We assumed this would be better and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing. However, the service was terrible. Once we had our menus, we were ignored until the two servers stopped arguing in front of all the guests. Two other groups came in after us and were fawned over by the servers (fish and lobsters brought out, wine samples, etc.). In the middle of the meal, we were asked to move tables to make room for a larger group that was outside perusing the menu. We moved because we felt like we didn’t have a choice as the servers began moving tables and grabbing our plates and wine. The table they moved us to was covered in silverware, wine bottles, and a cheese platter (that may have been from another table). They didn’t take the time to clean the table before they asked to move us or moved our food on to the table. They cleaned most of the stuff off our table and then proceeded to give their attention to the other table while we uncomfortably tried to finish our food and wine. We hadn’t yet finished when one of the servers was outside talking to a couple looking at the menu, asking how long the wait might be. He looked over his shoulder at our table and said it’d only be a few minutes. I still hadn’t finished my wine. I have never felt so embarrassed in my whole life. When they came and cleared our plates, they asked in passing, half-heartedly, if we wanted dessert. We said yes, because we had planned on ordering it already. Once we finished the dessert, the brought us the check immediately. It was the first time a restaurant in Italy has brought me a check without my asking. They handled our payment and we felt the pressure to leave. We did, because it was clear we were not welcome anymore. The food was great, but the atmosphere and the service was not welcoming at all. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Great atmosphere, small restaurant good service. Not a normal tourist destination. Try it you will love it. Service, food, atmosphere worth a trip off the Via Veneto

    We have been coming to this restaurant now every year for 3 years when we come to Rome. I think it has changed owners. We use to feel we were part of the family. This feeling is gone from there now. We were disappointed in this change. We will not be going back.

    We had a reservation for a party of eight, friends and work colleagues. The restaurant was very responsive and accommodating of our needs. Service was cordial and attentive. The food and wine were delicious and the price was more than reasonable. We drank three bottles of the house red and the bill came to about 35 EUR per person with many great appetizers and a main course. The decor was welcoming and the live music was entertaining. All in all an excellent dinner and evening.

    What an awesome experience. Very small and intimate setup coupled with a piano player in the background. And great service from the staff. I had the sea bass and my wife the ravioli. Both dishes were fantastic and the wine was a great pairing. Their tiramisu was also very good.

    This place is rated #1 for the area on Trip Advisor, and aptly so. Had the gnocchi, which had lots of cheese. The place is small, and was busy the whole time we were there. Someone played the piano, but we were still able to carry on our conversation while the music was playing. Would easily go back again.

    This was a very nice simple little Italian restaurant for my family to dine at. I thought the restauranteur was a nice gentleman who was very good to me and my young family (2 and 3yo children). We had the lobster pasta which was fantastic and a very nice bottle of Barbaresco. My children had a simple fettuccine bolognese which they lapped up. All in all I thought it was a very pleasant restaurant with good simple Italian cooking.

    Menu was not expensive, but waiter did not tell us the price of the special we ordered which was considerably more expensive than the menu. If he had mentioned the price, we wouldn't have ordered it and this review would be better.

    Food was good but expensive for what it was compared to other places we visited in Rome, even after the fork discount. Music was played intermittently in the restaurant very loudly and the managers kept opening the door to chase people on the street to get them to come in.

    Nothing wrong with food, generally fine. Few diners on arrival, but started to fill up by the time we left giving it reasonable atmosphere however, pianist overpowering given the size of the restaurant.

    We were offered the special dish of the day. We asked about the price and were told of 20euro. When the check came, it was 35euro. The quality was under par. They also charged us 7.5 euro for a drink of 6 though they corrected after our question.

    This place was cozy but very lively and entertaining! Great specials the day I went of either a giant lobster or a giant crab. The prices were great and the flavors were amazing! I will definitely go back next time I'm in Rome! ????

    10 minutes from the Borghese Gallery, this amazing little spot delivers authentic Italian fare with a piano player to accompany your Chianti and Pasta. Amazing!

    The best thing about this place was the piano player. The waiter was only interested in upselling the wine and getting people into the restaurant. He was constantly at the entrance trying to attract people which totally spoiled the atmosphere. Food was ok. Served bread in dish to coeliac but did make it again from scratch.

    Quiet Sunday evening, and restaurant was 1/2 filled. But we felt very rushed by our waiter. More leisure would have meant slower, more enjoyment of food and ambiance. Probably would have ordered dessert and coffee, but we felt too pushed. Food was ok, antipasti plate for two was good, entrees were not great or distinctive.
