Nice atmosphere, great food but a bit pricey. We enjoyed the menu being just a few items and both had a pasta dish. Lovely, welcoming and informative staff.

It is almost always crawdad, because of the real italian food you can get there. All kind of spaghettis are well served and the pizzas are at it's best.

CANTINETTA is casual, bustling with energy, and really friendly. Simply put, CANTINETTA is a genuine, Roman osteria with Amsterdam style.In late afternoon, pick your spot at our intimate, café-tiled bar and enjoy our signature aperitivo and a plate of suppli al telefono – a favorite Roman snack or "street-food" - while watching as we wrap up daily production in our “pasta workshop”. Later, meet up with family or friends over steaming plates of Spaghetti Carbonara made with local, organic, farm-fresh eggs and our housecured guanciale.After dinner, share a carafe of vino naturale from our ever-flowing, eco-friendly wine tap. Or, simply slip into CANTINETTA, before heading home to bed, to share a slice of warming, seasonal fruit crostata and a steaming cup of rich and robust, Italian-blend coffee severd via stainless steel caffettiera.
