    We had a very nice evening here and prices where good. At first we thought that the place seemed a bit touristy- but finally it was only Italien customers and us in the restaurant. Everything tasted good and portions where generous:)

    A great restaurant with good ambiance, food and nice waiters. The focaccia is to die for and I had the best spaghetti aglio e olio in my life. Will surely go back.

    The tonnarelli carbonara was great. The staff members were very friendly and helped us a lot by speaking in English. Overall a great experience.

    Order the Carbonara. Nothing will make you happier. It’s been a week and I’m still thinking about it.

    Nice atmosphere, although it can feel a bit hectic, packed, and chaotic during peak dining hours. Food is great and delicious, there's a good variety of options to choose from and all are authentic dishes from Roman cuisine. One of my favorite restaurants in the Navigli area, it wasn't my first time here and won't be the last one. It's also reasonably priced and easily affordable.

    Great restaurant, with lots of locals and off the main touristy adjacent canal. The team were super helpful even if our Italian wasn;t up to scratch The food was delicious and really well priced.

    We had a fantastic meal here on a Friday night. Portions were plentiful and tasty. The trippa alla Romana and cacio e pepper were memorably good. We had four mains, one pizza, and three different portions of fried items (zucchini flowers and olives), bottle of prosecco and with cover charge the total was €110 which we felt was good value. Service was friendly and efficient. Recommend. We would return

    I loved the place. The lady who was with us was amazing. Very friendly. Carbonara was perfect, the spaghet one. The other pasta carbonara was too salty.

    Went here with my mother yesterday and the pasta with salad were amazing! Unfortunately I forgot to ask two nicest waitresses who helped us with choosing the dishes (Carbonara and Amatriciana, btw 11/10!) and thanks to them we keep having a nice time in Milano:)

    The waiter was polite but misleading. He said the salad was small but in fact it was large. We would have only ordered 1 to share.He mixed up our order and only brought 1 main dish. The tiramisu was commercially made. The ambiance was traditional and inviting.

    Distinctly fine. The venue is a step up from many of the Navigli tourist traps but it’s a pretty small step. Staff were friendly and cheerful. The mixed, fried, selection was good as was the pasta and meatball options. The pizza was a little underwhelming in comparison. This is probably a good venue for a cheap and cheerful group or family meal out but it’s not overly romantic or intimate so probably not the right place for date night.

    Aesthetically beautiful restaurant, but when we ordered there was no pizza or bruschetta. After a first course, instead of bread we ordered two tarts, but the waiter came back to tell us that they did not have a type of cake, so he would bring us two identical ones. The problem was that we did not receive the correct tarts, because the two slices of cake did not match either my order or my friend's order. They probably didn't have both types of tarts, but we still continued having lunch quietly. In any case, since we had lunch at 12.30, we don't think they had already run out of stock. They should have informed us of any changes to the menu before taking our orders. Otherwise, we had no problems with either the payment or the service, which was a bit slow, but it was worth it. Maybe we went on the wrong day.

    The food was absolutely amazing. We unlocked a new flavor when eating the lamb with mint (we had never tasted anything like it). The cacio e pepe was really tasty (we asked for the fresh pasta with egg version). Glad we went there. 10/10 recommend
