“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Absolutely loved the food and sitting out on the patio. Not thrilled with having tables around us smoking while we were eating but that is how Rome is .

“Stay away”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We thought to try out a restaurant on Via Veneto & this one looks modern & is outdoors. Checking out the menu we thought the prices appropriate for the location & ordered accordingly. The service was awful! Although my husband & I were speaking English we are both fluent in Italian , a fact the waiter didn't know. The waiter then proceeded to try and augment our order with other items by insistence. The poor people in the next table (seniors) were given sea food platters when they had ordered pizza, extra alcohol not ordered at all while he was making fun of them in Italian. Then he had the nerve to demand a tip.....not ask....demand. We were both so embarrassed that we asked for our bill. Save yourself the trouble & money.

“modern restaurant, but good food at the center of Rome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

the outside of the restaurant is not really appealing as it does not look as a typical Italian restaurant. However, the food is good and not expansice, expecially for the lunch. They propose pizzas, but also typical Italian dishes and various vegetables. At the lunch time, it looks like the cantine for people working for several administrations located in the area; The food is presented on a counter and we can choose the dishes that are the most appealing.

“Great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Upon the recommendation of our hotel staff, we had dinner at La Strega. We really wanted to try the pizza and our hotel said theirs was some of the best; we have to agree. Not only was the pizza delicious, so was the wine we enjoyed with our meal and the cappuccino we had afterwards. Very reasonably priced as well.

“A good central restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Visited this restaurant on 2 different days while in Rome. The food was good Pizza was for me the best i've tasted in Rome (pizza is cooked in a wood burning oven).The other day we had cotoletti alla Milanese very good also. Prices are also reasonable for a central Restaurant.Cover charge is 10% of the bill a bit expensive i must say.
