I have not eaten there as I tend to steer clear of the places near the Piazza di Spagna. However it does look like the food would be good--especially if you are comfortable ordering Roman food. But, you will probably be eating with a whole lot of tourists who would be wondering where the fettucine alfredo and/or the veal parmigiana are on the menu. :-)

It is located on via Borgorgnona, 11

> Do we need reservations?

It is always a good idea to have a reservation at virtually all restaurants in Italy--have your hotel make these for you. It is closed on Sunday.

>Is it very expensive?

It depends on what your standard of expensive is. My sources indicates that it is about $35 for dinner without wine. So I would guess that dinner for two with a house wine would be a walk out cost of $90.

>Is it the best choice?

Hard to say. But I would suggest that you refer to the information about several restaurants which I had recommended in posts of a couple of weeks ago. I would add Da Paris to that list which is in Piazza San Calisto in Trastevere. The web site has wonderful information about Rome, the restaurants there and, importantly, how to order a meal in Italy. If you haven't read the information at their site, I urge you to do so.
