Family Style Restaurants like Ristorante Del Pallaro in Rome

We are looking forward to spending a few nights in Rome, where we'll be sure to eat at Del Pallaro, which is a little mom & pop restaurant at Largo Del Pallaro, #15
South of Piazza Novana, behind San’ Andrea D. Valle church. The owners did not speak english and were adorable, with their hospitality and excellent home cooked food.

The menue is fixed for the day and everyone get's the same family style meal, at 20 euro's a piece (2005 pricing).

If you've experienced a similar restaurant and can recommend it, please let me know. I'm interested regardless of it's location in Italy.

When did you visit Der Pallaro last? It was an absolute disappointment on our last visit!

And I was so looking forward to it. They just seemed to be tired of it all.

Dar Pallaro has raised their price to 25E pp. You might also like Alfredo e Ada on Via Banchi Nuovi 14. Alfredo died a while ago, but Ada, her sister and daughter run this small osteria with communal tables and no menu. There is no sign outside. The price is also around 25E pp.

We enjoyed Da I 2 Ciccioni in Trastevere.

Aussiegirl, We were last there in May 2005. I'm sorry to read that it's no longer the great little find we came across. In the Chicago Tribune recently (i.e. couple of months ago), the Rick Steves column highlighted this restaurant. Perhaps they are now overwhelmed with the influx of crowds Ricks endoresents can bring.

Grinisa and MademoisselleFifi, Thank you for the additional recommendations.

Thanks all.....D

Not "all-inclusive" like Der Pallaro but family-owned and very inexpensive are Sora Margherita in the Ghetto and Enoteca Corsi (only open at lunch) on Via del Gesu.

Osteria del Angelo on Via Bettolo north of the Vatican has a fixed-price lunch that is likely to be considerably better than any Der Pallaro ever offered, even before Rick Steves wrote it up.
