Description

Pasquino è la più celebre statua parlante di Roma, divenuta figura caratteristica della città fra il XVI ed il XIX secolo.Ai piedi della statua, ma più spesso al collo, si appendevano nella notte fogli contenenti satire in versi, dirette a pungere anonimamente i personaggi pubblici più importanti. Erano le cosiddette "pasquinate", dalle quali emergeva, non senza un certo spirito di sfida, il malumore popolare nei confronti del potere e l'avversione alla corruzione ed all'arroganza dei suoi rappresentanti.

Nice place with good food. We ate here twice, and both remained satisfied. Try fish dishes. Salad portions are really big. GooglePlace - December 2017

Great traditional Italian restaurant. We were here twice, and would recommend the salmon with orange sauce, Amatriciana pasta, and the seafood pasta. The waiter calle Igor is very attentive and professional. GooglePlace - December 2017

The owner was very inviting and insisted we order his "seafood special" rather than the penne with salmon we asked for. We asked him about the price but he said it's free if we don't like it. We really liked his hearty laughs and thought we found real Italian hospitality. Well, the seafood special came, a very large rectangular plate of spaghetti topped with lobster, shrimp and mussels. The lobster meat was tough and hard to separate from the shell. Was that previously frozen for 1000 days? At any rate, the portion was more likely to be two-person. But the owner must have known that we already ordered plenty for both of us, and this seafood special was meant to replace just one dish, right? The suspense came to a rude surprise ending when the check showed up. The so-called seafood special was 70=2*35 EUR and the total bill was 108 EUR. Fellow travelers, please be aware! PS. The bread was 4EUR instead of the free type we get at any other Italian restaurant GooglePlace - August 2017
