Located amongst the narrow twisting streets of the working-class neighborhood of Trastevere, this restaurant caters to local residents primarily. When we ate here in 2000 we were the only non-Italians in the place. It was wonderful seeing friends greet each other over a delicious meal and a glass of wine. The scene was entertaining, and at no charge!
It is one of the few places in Rome where you can find gluten-free dishes. The vegetarian pizza is very good; as are the Calzoni, folded pizzas, and the Bruschette, seasoned toasts, is out of this world. The restaurant also serves spaghetti, with meat dishes are on the menu during the week and fish recipes available on Tuesdays and Fridays.
