At the end of a picturesque street near the Vatican was this beautiful scene for dinner. I wish we had tried more, but what we had was great. We were seated and were able to place our orders in promptly.

I ordered the caprese salad and my wife ordered the lasagna. I feel like it’s hard to spice up these particular dishes, but they tasted great and did the job while we enjoyed a beautiful view. They won’t be the most memorable dishes that we’ve eaten in Rome, but it was a pleasant experience with good service.

The service is very accurate and the meals are really like italian food must be. The pasta and the dessert`s are great. The prices are very affordable.

I loved the pizza Diavola I ordered at Porta Castello. The pizza had a great thin crust, was very flavourful, and under 10 euros. The staff was nice, too.

Wonderful local restaurant with decent prices and good service, nearby Castel San Angelo and the Vatican. Very nice staff and excellent food. We had great pizzas and they are huge! We could not finish the whole pizza and they were happy to pack up the rest to take home. Also wonderful Suppli, can highly recommend it as a starter or snack on the side! If you are using public transport, bus line 23 stops in front of the restaurant

After a long day of exploring Rome,we really needed a fulfilling meal. We found this restaurant near our hotel and decided to give it a try. When we enteret,the place was full. The staff (family business) was sitting at one table and they werw managing some paperwork. They cleared that table and greeted us the 4 of us. This was such a nice thing to do,we were delighted. Everybody was so friendly and welcoming. The food was heavenly,so delucious and obviously ingridients of home quality. We had their wine,and a desert. Everything was so nice,we decided we had to come back again!
Tomorrow we came back and were greeted with even more friendlyness and effort. We were amazed and we definately recommend this wonderful family restaurant.
