This restaurant was down the street from our hotel and most nights we were too tired from walking to go too far. We tried this Taverna on our third night in Rome and were not disappointed. The restaurant is far larger inside than it looks from the outside. The walls are covered with photos of famous people along with the owner who was there this night as well, keeping an eye on things. I don't think I liked the decor as much, though, it didn't give you a cozy feeling to the restaurant. No matter...The waiter we had was pretty good though we did have some translation problems once or twice but nothing too serious. That's not his fault. The food was very good, though more expensive than any other restaurant we tried in Rome. A lot of it is typical Roman dishes and everything we had was very tasty. The wine was good and there was a good selection to choose from.We didn't make a reservation but it was a mid week November night and probably a tad on the early side (7:30 or so) when we arrived.I had artichokes done Roman style (steamed) with a plate of ravioli and a side salad and they were both very tasty. My partner had a starter and a mixed grill of various meats which he was quite pleased with. We had wine and a dessert and the total was just over 100 euros. I thought that was a bit high compared to the other neighbourhood restaurant we went to where we had similar meals, similar courses for about 25% less.
