Went there because of the reviews here on trip advisor. Food was great and service was even better. Quick, polite and English speaking waiter. When we arrived at 8pm the place was quite empty, but after 9 the place really filled up, and a band started playing a good mix of international hits as well as italien.

With Four of us we were reseated when a better table became free. Friendly service by someone who seemed hired especially because he speaks English. The other servant smiled when asked a question and referred us. Food price reasonable, but portions small. no ketchup available for the French fries was disappointing. Perhaps we will go again this evening?

I ate here recently with friends who live within waling distance and found it to be a lovely new location for me to visit again in the future. The wine was good, the food delicious and the service perfect and friendly. I will definitely recommend it to friends and family living in Rome or just visiting.

We were staying nearby and went here for dinner on the hotel's recommendation. The service was very slow when we arrived but we weren't in a hurry so didn't mind. We then ordered and everything was fine until 2 of our pizzas arrived and the third meal failed to appear for another 20 minutes. When we eventually asked about it... More

Went there to get something to drink (wine) and have something on the side. The first response was an angry woman muttering that we didn't order the main dishes. We got the wine relatively fast but nothing on the side... After avoiding me for 30 minutes I asked the staff where my side dish is, she just answer No no.... More

A really nice place, with ample outdoor seating. A very nice relaxing atmosphere. Both the food and the service was excellent. We arrived on a Friday evening and were warmly welcomed by an English-speaking hostess. By 9:30pm the place was quite crowded. However, our service remained consistent. Pros: - Good food at reasonable prices. - English is spoken (along with... More

We visited one May evening when it was quiet but the service was incredibly slow. It took 20 mins before a waiter took our wine order then he didn't bother returning to see if we wanted more. We had to go inside the restaurant to find someone to ask for the bill. The meat and fish courses are apparently charged... More
