It's all the things you want a real Roman eating experience to be: authentic, in a historic setting, filled with Italians eating good food at good prices. In this very "romani di Roma" working-class neighborhood, and surrounded by discos and bars sharing Monte Testaccio, you can enjoy a meal of classic Roman pasta dishes (carbonara, amatriciana, etc.) or a delicious fettucine with baby calamari and cherry tomatoes, along with some very good antipasti (try the mixed
vegetable plate), and great meat mains like meatballs and beef stew. It's simple, seasonal, and served with a smile, either in the cozy cavelike indoor dining rooms or outside under the umbrellas.
