Fodor's Review

On a charming back street set just a block from the busiest streets of bustling Trastevere sits this culinary homage to '50s and '60s Italy during the golden age of La Dolce Vita. The walls are black-and-white blow-ups of paparazzi photos and shots of film stars like Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren, and the jukebox from the era lends a retro feel to the small dining room. The food highlights dishes of southern Italy, so interesting variations on dishes with

eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, and mozzarella dominate the menu. Here's your chance, too, to sample southern Italian wines from as-yet-unknown regions like Molise and Basilicata. Service can be as slow as it is in the languorous south.
