Ate at this location twice for dinner because it was suggested by our host. Food itself was great. However, service was iffy. First time we went to this location, it took a while to order but after ordering food arrived quickly and rest of the visit was uneventful.

Second visit however, was slightly weird. When we entered the restaurant, no one really took notice to sit us down at a table. Not a big issue since they were kind of busy. After waiting for a bit, we went to the cash register and told the hostess we needed a table. She pointed at a corner where there seemed to be empty tables. We walked over to the tables to realize all the tables were dirty. We assumed that the hostess would clean the table up so we could sit. After waiting for over 10min for someone to arrive to clean the table, we went ahead and just found another empty table and sat ourselves down. Even after sitting down, we waited for 10min only for me to have to walk to the register again and tell the lady we are still waiting for the menus. Once we got the menu we ordered. Food was a little slow to arrive this time, but still just as delicious as the first time.

Overall food was great but the service was lacking.

Excellent roman food as always for me over the last 10 years! It's a family owned business who take immense pride in the taste and quality of their food!

This is a typical neighborhood (Monteverde) restaurant, with 'honest', cheap meals. A huge selection of pizze (all around 8 euro), great salads, pastas, and main courses. Also the typical Roman fried snacks. While we were staying in the Via Alberto Mario, the big terrace was completely sold out every day, signaling that this is a very good restaurant.

We had an early evening meal here, seemingly before the place got going. Pizza Napoli was OK, not the worst I have had but lacked flavour and substance so a long way from the best. Calzone Quattro Formaggi was quite greasy, and the blue cheese included overpowered all other flavours. The pizzas and a large beer and Fanta came to 22 Euros, so not unreasonable though we feel we've had better meals for less in Rome and so given the location it felt slightly more than par for our experience. Service was pleasant without being special. We'd struggle to recommend this place but wouldn't want to put anyone off either - perhaps we just ordered the wrong menu options.

A few minutes walk from Via A Poerio (where I was staying), 10 minutes' stroll from the terminus of the 75 bus, this restaurant is very good value -- authentic Italian food, pleasant service and very reasonably priced. The outdoors, summertime option was really pleasant on this quiet side street. Inside is also good. Drinks, antipasto, pizzas and sides came to €100 for 5 persons. Go early to avoid waiting. We went at 7.15 pm, leaving near 9 pm by which time there was a growing crowd waiting for places. Yes, excellent value in Rome.
