    Great food and service, everything was excellent. We enjoyed the overall experience. It wasn’t rushed and didn’t feel touristy.

    Food was slow coming. About an hour after we arrived. We'd eaten there earier without this problem so it may have been an aberration.

    7pm reservation so there was no issue with crowds. Service was very helpful and attentive. Started with a light appetizer on the house after we confirmed we reserved through The Fork. House red wine was very good, as were the pasta, meat, and pizza dishes ordered. Sponge cake dessert was fabulous; caramel flan custard had too strong a flavor for some, but others enjoyed it. Finished with limoncello digestivo to end a wonderful dinner.

    Fantastic! Our waiter went above and beyond what we expected. Rather than having us choose unfamiliar foods, he made wonderful suggestions and we were thrilled!

    Language barrier was kind of tough. But food and atmosphere were great.

    This is a great little restaurant not far from the Vatican walls. In fact the view of dome of St Peter's from just near the rail bridges is spectacular. The food is excellent - reliable Italian favourites. The lamb was a particular favourite. Service from the waiters is excellent, even if there are only a few of the tips serve the whole restaurant so be patient and prepared to have dinner as it was meant to be - enjoyed slowly over a few hours.

    This was our first visit to this restaurant, based on the recommendation of our friends who had made several previous visits. We were a party of 4 persons. What a disappointment! The ladies in our party ordered Prosecco, but were served a very inferior and only slightly effervescent white wine. The half litre carafe of house red wine appeared to be diluted and lacking in any body or character. Our first course foods were served as requested. Our second course order included one 'large sole' fish choice as recommended by our waiter. Only 3 out of our 4 second course dishes arrived, and our waiter then announced without any apology that the 'large sole' would be a regular sole and would not be served until 10 minutes later. No further explanation or apology was offered. The VERY small sole was finally presented nearly 20 minutes later, long after the rest of our party had completed our second course dishes. Again no explanation or apology was offered for the delay. Appallingly bad service. Avoid.

    The food was amazing, the staff was warm and welcoming. They even offered us limoncello after we settled our bill. The restaurant was busy which made it so my husbands dinner got a little cold while he waited for my meal to arrive, but don't let that deter you, it was busy cause it was good!

    It's was a very nice old Italian restaurant. The food was a little over salted but was good even with that. Lots of people were showing up right as we left. And the place was almost full.
