There are better, small family places very near this restaurant that make this a place to pass up. The food was OK. The spaghetti with basil was just that: A plate of spaghetti with red sauce and a sprig of basil on top. Boring. You can do better by going around the corner and heading the opposite direction on Via... More

My partner and I had a Birthday dinner in this restaurant on our first night in Rome. It was awful. Everything really. Food was poor and service not much better... I've paid around 40 Euros but really should just leave the food and not pay. Very disappointing!

As we sat down at our table we were hardly noticed. A waiter threw the menus on our table without looking at us. After getting the food we asked for some bread and got a basket of very old and dry bread. The food wasn't worth the price. Food was quick but it took a long time to get the... More

Recommend by our hotel. Pizza combination of burnt, soggy and lack of topping Bruschetta had no seasoning bland all round with only dried herbs. Seafood pasta-frozen at best, packet pasta, prawns the smallest I have ever seen and tough to eat, pasta only contained prawns and muscles as far as seafood goes. Flavour of sauce ok but seafood in it... More

We ate at this restaurant as it was recommended by the hotel we were staying at and it was only a few blocks away. We had just arrived that day and wanted to go somewhere within close proximity to the hotel. We ate outside and started with the caprese salad and enjoyed the fresh buffalo mozzarella. My husband then had... More

Ok so we came here because it was easy first night. We stayed in a nearby hotel who had a recommend policy with them and it also meant we were picked up and dropped back. We thought it would be really expensive. We were pleasantly surprised when the bill came in at 35 euros for drinks (a very generous large... More

Very nice place, atmosphere is very inviting. Service is OK but not more than that. Food very good but no house wine by the half liter or liter only by the glass and a bit expensive!

The restaurant itself wasn't too bad to look at and the food was nice, the only thing that let the restaurant down was the service as the waiter kept us waiting for at least 15 minutes before coming to bring our bill.
