La Fata Ignorante?

I'm curious about this place because I see tons of good reviews on TA but a search here came up empty. The reviews on TA are so good that they actually make me a bit suspicious (only 1 1-star and 9 2-star reviews out of 895 reviews). Anyone actually been here, trying to decide whether to give this place a shot or play it safe and head to Perilli on the evening we are in Testaccio.

      Hmm, looks like he's pretty aggressive about fighting bad reviews. I've heard of restaurants/tour companies asking for good reviews but never threatening legal action for bad ones. Think I'll skip it unless somebody on here gives them the thumbs up.

        if you read some of the reviews on his site, at least one person reported that a waiter there asked for personal email to thank him and then solicitedreviews.

        Its a funny world we live in.

    2. I've never heard of it. Which makes me a bit suspicious....I'd head to Perilli, which is one of my favorites.

      1. I have been there once for drinks and once for dinner. The food is very good and the owner is super friendly. It is a modern place with classic dishes, but not very traditional.

        If you are looking for old school Roman go with Perilli.
