I was drawn in to this restaurant in Rome by the exterior menu and its extensive bruschetta selection. Seated and served quickly by waiters who patiently understood my not-so-fluent Italian; the bruschetta selection presented a tough choice for there are so many to choose from. I forget which ones I eventually settled for, however I do remember that it was... More

Well, we've found the place in our guide saying that Insalata ricca to be a good place with low prices and a good food. In fact it was so. I took Italian salad for 9.50 EUR and spaghetti for 9 EUR. To be honest the salad was really good. as for spaghetti we've seen better stuff. But the service was... More

We found this place while walking by and decided to stop instead of pursuing another restaurant down the street listed in all out books. I am glad we did. We ordered some delicious and huge salads, an assortments of bruschetta and tons of the house wine. It turned out a great evening at a surprisingly cheap price. Service was probably... More

The best meal we had in Rome was at this restaurant. The food was delicious and the wait staff outstanding. It was a highlight among so many great restaurants in Rome.

I would recommend it - really cheap prices of food and wine especially since it is next to piazza Navona. Salad portions are big and every time we had a salad there it was great. The staff was helpful to us even though they dont show a lot of enthusiasm.

This restaurant is fabulous for good basic food at incredibly low prices. The menu is vast and the salads are huge. Wine was ridiculously cheap. As for service, monosyllabic at best. No smiles, no charm. However you get what you pay for.

Justt three blocks away from the Vatican museum this restaurant specializes in salads with at least a couple dozen choices, but it is still excellent for other Italian specialties like past, pizza or antipasti. Service is not as friendly or efficient as in America but is not bad and the food and prices are very good. The location, the food... More

We ate at this restaurant a couple of times and the value is in the fixed price menu where for about 10 euros you have the option of still or spring water or a glass of wine, bread or bruschetta, entree and espresso or cappuccino. The entree selections included pasta, meat skewer (very good!) or salads (huge). However, you have... More

This selection was ad hoc. We were just hungry and looking decent restaurant. This place looked fully booked and crowded by local people  good sign. We ordered fried meatballs as starter but they came at the same with all dishes but that was the only minus. Waitress was friendly and spoke good English. We ordered chicken with roasted potatoes...

this restaurant was recommended to us by one of the shop owners, they serve the best salads we've eaten in Rome, fresh and tasty tip: sometimes is good to ask locals for recommendation as you can end up in a great place
