Paola has become well-known and even Rich Steves recommends her - and deservedly so! Line up here and experience great Italian lunch or dinner! Worth the wait and so close to Campo di Fiori! Your appetizers will arrive before you have organized your jacket, purse, etc.
Visited recently with VT'rs Joanne & Jerry (qvarizona) and again with Jo (Jo 104) - had another great dinner that "wowed" everyone! This is the most unique restaurant I have found in all of Rome! Not only is the food just great - but these people have fun serving you. Be seated and before you can even arrange your belongings, the antipasto of the day arrives along with the day's wine - a steady stream of courses follow. All the while, they might be poking fun at customers - sitting down at your table - telling people they have no choices but they'll eat when they have time to serve them. First-time customers here may look shocked - the regular Roman clientele will be laughing. You will receive the specialites of the day - each one typical Roman cusine - home cooked flavor - and all delicious.
You'll find the inscription: 'Qua se magna quello che passa casa' in Roman slang 'Here you eat what we give you" - always home made and of the best quality. You will feel as in the kitchen of a family. A five course meal of typically Roman food, including wine, coffee.
Ask Paola to go down to the wine cellar and have a quick look to the ancient Roman ruins of a theatre that are under your feet !!
We paid 25 Euro each.
Now open every day - tutti giorno!
Favorite Dish: Whatever they are serving that day! You will immediately receive a pitcher of wine (your choice red or white) appetizers will arrive shortly, then pasta, followed by your main course of meat & vegetables, salad, desert, coffee and limoncello!! This is the typical service.
A unique experience as this restaurant has no menu. You will be served whatever is currently being cooked and you have no choice in the matter (except in the colour of wine, i.e. rosso o bianco?). The cuisine is typically Roman and everything I've had has been delicious with a home cooking feel to it. You will pay a fixed price (~20 EUR). But don't expect this to be a fancy restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Hard to tell... there is no set menu!
