we enjoyed our meal there, but there's better food to be had in rome. the service was good, food was very good, but the location is not great. if this place was in another country it would get a 4, but considering the other options in rome, it gets a 3.

While in Rome, we stayed in an apartment just around the corner from this restaurant. On our first night, we tried another close by restaurant which was recommended to us by our landlord, and we found it not to our liking. On the second night, we tried the Melarancio, which was across the alley from where we had our morning... More

We went to this restaurant just because it is located within walking distance from our hotel. I confirm most of the other reviews said. The prices were high, which might be standard in the area, while the food was only "acceptable". Some of the waitresses were sitting at table close to us, smoking, checking their smart-phone, and even eating (!)... More

We found this restaurant in a side street near the Piazza del Popolo having found the infinitely better Osteria St Ana (Via della Penna) full. This place looks OK from the outside, some nice tables in the street, and the restaurant menu on display looked appealing so we gave it a try. What a mistake. The place seems to be... More

After visited Piazza Del Popolo, we walk around and saw this little outdoor garden resturant and decided to have our lunch there. Staff were friendly. We wanted to get onto their WiFi and one of the lady was very helpful. We looked at the menu and decided to have salmon with rocket leave as our entree to share and my... More

we had a salami+cheese starter (it was perfect, surely go fo it), then we had pasta amatriciani (good 4/5) and the fish with apple/orange+vinegard sauce and potatoes, it was really good. The stuff might go faster and also the speed of food serving was just 2.5/5 (we have been waiting 15-20 mins for starter which are just a few slices... More

Just went there for dinner with wife. All was well, the house wine was good, the service was good. It seems to cater to tourists, and I am glad not to worry about the Roman 4 course meal. Evewrything feels like what we are used to, at Home, home being Chicago. We would go back. Saw that a few travelers... More

Couple from Belgium had a antipasta for two and then home made pasta. Really enough, prices rather high and an extra of 4? for the "couvert": unpleasant surprise!!

We were drawn to this restaurant down a side street in Rome for lunch by its lovely garden setting. This was the first meal we ate in Rome as we began our Italian getaway and we were not disappointed. The frutti di mare salad was fresh and crisp and the porcini risotto was delicious. Worth a stop while in Rome.

My wife and I ate dinner at this restaurant during a 4 day trip to Rome. The food is overpriced versus other restaurants in the area and very basic to say the least. The cover charge is a rip off and we waited 15 minutes to get served and another 25 minutes for the food to arrive. when the food... More
