My brother had been to this restaurant on his honeymoon and had raved about it ever since. On my first trip to Rome it was closed for holiday, but luckily on my second trip to Rome they were open, so we made a reservation. My brother was not lying. The meal was absolutely amazing and the place is so charming and couldn’t be further from a tourist trap. The place is nothing fancy, so come here for the food, not the glitz and glam. It’s located in the adorable neighborhood of Trastevere, so I suggest giving yourself some time to walk around and shop in the area before and after dinner.
We had a table near the kitchen, and being that my fiance is a chef, he immediately noticed that there was only one person in the kitchen who was cooking for the whole restaurant, which was not super small. We thought that maybe was a bad sign, but absolutely not the case. The food was amazing and kudos to this one chef for taking it on solo. Our favorite dishes was the awesome roman style gnocci and the Cacio e Pepe. Leave room for dessert because that was also amazing.
