“Best sea food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I had a great lunch during a Thunderstorm in Rome. Everything was great, sea food, pasta, bruschetta and the tiramisu was delicious. It was the best restaurant we tried in our holiday in Rome. I highly recommend it.

“Good traditional restaurant at the Spanish Steps”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

This was a repeat visit, third time. Located just to the left of the Spanish Steps, this scenic and cozy trattoria offers a nice mix of traditional Roma dishes and wine. Waiters are experienced and attentive. Prices are fair. Daily an seasonal specials should be tried. Nice place. Great location.

“Terrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We stopped at this restaurant just off the Piazzo Del Popolo for lunch and it was just awful, firstly the waiter seated us on the terrace area which was fine but it was over half empty with plenty of tables yet he chose to seat us practically on top of the customers beside us, he actually had to move the table so we could sit down and then move it back when we were seated. The food was terrible as well I had chicken and potatoes (very greasy/oily hardly any meat) and my husband had the pizza and then to top it off the waiter pointed out that there was a 10% service charge but a tip is expected also for the waiter! Maybe they were having a bad day because I've read some of the other reviews but this was my experience of the restaurant, I would avoid it!

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Food was mediocre - kind of like a cheap recreation of a tourist-trap restaurant in Little Italy in New York, with warmed-up pasta and stale sauce- but what was really terrible was the service. The waiter was rude and hovering over us the whole time impatiently while we were looking at the menu. While we were eating he was leaning on a table next to us and listening in on our conversation, and once the restaurant filled up, he was eager to get us out. When he presented the bill he said "tip is not included." Ignoring his rude remark, we left a small tip-- more than he deserved-- on which he said "That's it?!"

I don't know why it got good reviews- either this was written by friends, paid for by the restaurant, or it used to be better- as it is now, it's a joke-- and not a cheap one. Spare yourself - Rome is full of great restaurants, skip this one.

“Best dinner we had in Rome!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We had just an amazing dinner last night!!
Our servers name was Francesso Marrano, and he was by far the best server we have had while in Rome
We started out with the mixed seafood/fish appy, followed by two amazing Pasta dishes
Ravioli with truffles and a fettachini with shrimp and asparagus.
The wine was a 2009 Madreselva and was perfect!!
-we have been traveling all over Italy, and were surprised at how rude some of these restaurant servers can be, and were thinking of heading back to Florence.
This fellow (Francessco) was so helpful with not just dinner, but activities, where to shop, etc
Definitely check this place out!!!
