definitely not a place to go if you are a tourist...we needed a place to go for lunch on Sunday and happened into this spot as were wandering the neighborhood and it had lots of locals and full tables...the "old man" who was our server obviously disliked tourists (even ones that stay local and eat local and know local) b/c...

This is a very good moderately priced restaurant within easy walking distance of the Vatican. But, it's far enough away that it's not one of the crappy tourist restaurants. I've used it twice with groups of college students for lunch after going to the Vatican museum. To reach it go straight out the exit to the museum, go down the... More

Recommended by our hotel we had the buffet and were very well looked after by the waiter who talked us through what was on offer. Possibly a little pricey compared to other restaurants we ate in but not a bad experience

We had a great meal at this restaurant and just for fun I looked it up on Tripadvisor when we returned to our hotel. I was astounded by all the negative reviews. I began to wonder if it could be the same place. However when you read the reviews you see that most relate to what the restaurant charge for... More

I was invited for lunch at Terno Secco for a family meal. The menu was set given the number of participants. I liked the food and the service was friendly. I was there during the week for lunch so the place was not too busy (a large group of tourists was having a meal). Risotto was rather well cooked and... More

They served us wrong pizza ,Tthen overcharged us on an already expensive dish and more importantly the lady owner lied about the price of that meal on the menu. Restaurant also charged us for bread basket(not asked for) and for service ( 5 Euros extra!!). This restaurant was recommended by our hotel so we suggest to not rely on the... More

I had read some decent reviews about this place on a different website, and since we are staying close by I figured it to be a good option for us. Unfortunately, the waitress constantly kept trying to sell us food we didn't want. She rushed us to make our choices. I asked her to take the bread away because we... More

I'm somewhat surprised by all the reviews claiming bad service and cheating, as this was not our experience of the restaurant at all, and we ate there 3 times! The service was always friendly, and even though some of the older waiters couldn't speak English (it is Italy after all), they tried their best to communicate in a way that... More

It is too bad that the mediocre food and cool local crowd was overshadowed by my feeling that we were cheated. Paying for Roman bread is not customary, nor is adding a hefty tip manually to the check. The servers up sold us on wine we didn't really want and were generally not friendly. I think they want to keep... More

The locals told us about this place and said the buffet is good (10 euro) but to look out because they often try to cheat people. Sure enough, they did. We saw the buffet which had salmon and meatballs and decided it looked good. We ordered the buffet but when we tried to get our own food, the waiter told... More
