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

Sadly I think this establishment took advantage of the fact we were tourists, the food supplied simply didn't match the description in the menu, the service was very very poor and the prices very high. Probably the worst meal we had during our time in Rome

I should have ordered a salad. The ravioli tasted like it came from a can. They charged us €6 for bread (the only Italian restaurant that has charged for bread so far). Not good.

Our host, Marco, from the Vecchia Roma Resort, which is within a few minutes walking distance, recommended the L'Insalata Ricca. We were delighted by this restaurant! Good tables, top service, and excellent meals. They have a wide variety of healthy, interesting salads, as well as great pasta dishes. And even steaks! which one of our party had, and thoroughly enjoyed.... More

Even on Easter Sunday, we found an outside table for a late lunch. The service was friendly and efficient. The pasta with pecorino and pepper was excellent...Sicilian salad was above average.

We had been walking around for hours to find a place with good food and trying to stay away from tourist traps. We accidentally walk by this restaurant that is full of Italian guests dining outside, so we decided to sit down. Most people ordered salads, but we went for Spaghetti Carbonara, which was a huge portion, and very tasty.... More
