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.

It is a cozy place. Quality of the food is high and the dishes are well served. Try cacio & pepe! GooglePlace - October 2017

Had one of the best meals in Rome here. We had a great waitress that was patient with us and accommodated our request for no shells on the seafood risotto and had the best carbanara at this restuarant GooglePlace - September 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

Reasonably priced for such a location and not too crowded. The food was great. Traditional dishes like cabonara & a wide selection of wines. GooglePlace - August 2017

Literally the best pizza I had throughout our entire trip. The bruschetta was also very tasty. Bianca our server was very sweet and remembered us each time we walked by through the week. We enjoyed it so much we ate there twice buying our stay. GooglePlace - July 2017
