The first time we tried to eat here they were fully booked until 9:30pm. So the next day we returned at opening time (7pm) for a table, and had a seating 7pm - 8:15pm. The next day we made a booking so had a seating from 7pm and weren't rushed to leave. Service: takes a while to get your order in, the waiters are very friendly and helpful (menus only in Italian), but they are very very busy! Once the order is in, the food is very quick. Food: Over the 2 visits we had a salad, 3 different pastas, a chocolate pie, and 2 types of white wine recommended by the waiters. All of it was great Price: really good. 8-11 euros for pastas. Venue: really cool interior, customers can write on the walls, has a very cool vibe. Seating is a little cosy though because they are so fully booked!
The food was great! The signature La Carbonara was to die for. I ordered some chicken dish that was good. My mom ordered some beef dish that was a little slimy. But the seasonal vegetables, don't order them. Haha! Because it's not what we get in the states. I would stay to grilled vegetables (Verdure Griglia). Also, the pastas are extremely fresh and good. The service is a little slow. You just have to make sure they see that you want to order.
This place excels in typical Roman fare. You simply can not go wrong. It is all delicious and all affordable. If you are lost for ideas, start with "carciofo alla giudia" then order "carbonara" and finish with "straccetti". You will go home happy, I guarantee. If you're lucky, the owner's mum will be helping to serve tables and she'll show you a bit of Roman spirit. Bravi!
