A small checkered table cloth Italian restaurant. Not sure about the table cloths. The feel, the smell and the food is exactly what one might be looking for on a dark back street in Rome. We asked that the antipasto be all vegetarian, the result was exceptional with tasty cheeses, olives, roasted vegetables and breads. The shaved salad was quite tasty and so crunchy fresh. A grilled caesar was nicely cheesed and had a perfect dressing, even for those who might make the unforgivable choice of no anchovies atop. The spaghetti was sauced with Nonna's special "gravy"with large, succulent meat balls of Barbuzzo fame. One of the best basic pasta dishes this poster has recently enjoyed. No soup for you! The special soup was only special in its absence, strange. Many other items delivered to close by table will be ordered at our next visit. A special house bottled cocktail of Campari, Aprol and grapefruit was interesting but either and soda is better for me. Good friendly service and an addition to our list of places we find enjoyable also with good friendly prices.
