This restaurant probably fit American stereotypes best as it serves "familiar" food in large quantities (just look at the pictures). Its not that there wouldn't be an effort from the restaurant owners - its just that if you are looking for something exceptionally tasteful (like Italian food can be) - this probably isn't going to fit the bill. Perhaps we... More

This restaurant was highly recommended at tripadvisor, but unfortunately we did not really read through the reviews. If we had, we might have understood this is a steakhouse (or something of the like) with very little to do with true italian food. We noticed our mistake almost immediately by the dirty menus thrown to our table, the selection of food... More

"Dear" Customer is the first time we receive a negative review so by a person who has not eaten in practice. We remember very well of you, you came last Sunday at 19:25. You were the first customers to buy, partly because the restaurant opens at 19.30, we brought the menus in English, not thrown, where there are widely described... More

We found this restaurant by searching trip advisor, we had been in Fiumicino for two previous evenings and had been a little disappointed with the gayer we had had so far. Oh boy do we wish we had come here on our first evening. We arrived to find all the tables set up outside, I'm not a lover of eating... More

We came here for dinner for our last night in Rome. We had been warned that there wasn't much to choose from near the airport, but this restaurant exceeded our expectations. The menu provided a nice variety, the service was prompt and the food was very good. The restaurant had a large business group that night that filled half the... More

Was there last Friday with 3 others and had a most agreeable meal. The filit steak I had was very tender and cooked to perfection. The only odd thing was I requested a garlic and butter sauce, and this did not appear to be an Italian thing. However they did it for me and it was delicious. Prices were reasonable,... More

This restaurant came as a recommendation of a friend living in Fiumicino and friends with the owners. The service is great, attentive and friendly. They will speak English if you require, which is something you don't see very often around here. We ordered several dishes of meat and some antipasti. All were cooked to perfection and the meat was one... More

Good evening, that ugly title, "Avoid the flesh, we specialize in just that, and thankfully say that we do well. The pork steak on our menu is a steak of pork neck, this is because cooking it on the grill, being fatter a steak pork loin is better and is more flavorful. Maybe she preferred the less oily. greetings Cristina... More

A one night stay, an early flight and money running out meant only one thing - Pizza. After a visit to a Gelateria (on the not so salubrious side of town), a young waitress advised to visit the restaurant where her boyfriend worked - so glad we took her advice. Very friendly staff- all English speaking. Loved the family atmosphere... More
