"Once past the office style reception, I loved it. Food is Italian but original - Sicilian and puglian influences. Giuseppe, the head waiter, knows his stuff and looks after you - some of the younger staff were still trying to learn what the menu was. But food is spot on and very reasonable indeed."

"The restaurant is a good airy space, with a mix of tables, booths and one long sharing table. Booths are best. The food is authentically Roman: meat eaters should go for the bombolotti ragu and saltimbocca, though the chicken and pancetta meatballs with the smoothest-ever polenta are hard to turn down. Vegetarians have good choices too. You have to order the fried sage leaves. Everybody does."
