“Chaos in service & poor food quality”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

After 15 minutes sitting and waiting we have finally ordered (one soup / one primo piato / coca-cola, wine and water). For 1 bottle of water the service needs in this restaurant 20 minutes. For food they need over 1 hour and soup came so salty, that I almost thought they made it for water of dead sea.
Waiter was hard to find to complain, so I took the soup directly to the kitchen.
After rude discussion with waiter and ordered the bill - 36 EUR for 1 saltimbocca / bottle of water / small coca-cola and 2 glases of wine is quite a robbery, if we consider the quality of food and service.
NEVER EVER AGAIN

“Forget this place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

The food is acceptable but the service is awfull. We commanded only pasta and we stayed for 2 hours and the waiters were incompetent and very unpleasant. Do not eat there.

“Don't go there..”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Very friendly when you get in, but once you have a table you almost get pushed to order. Then the 'medium rare stake' consists of 25% fat, the dessert comes straight from the freezer, covered in ice cristals and the answer on remarking that is 'you just have to wait for two minutes'. Ridiculous. And it cost 88 euro's. For 2 bad pieces of meat, a little plate of fries, a bitter salad on the side, a frozen 'tiramisu' and 'tartufa' straight from some super market and 4 beers. After putting down the money for the bill he even checks it first at your table. We feel offended. And we've been in a lot of restaurants all over the world so you can trust us on this comment. A big no go for this place..

“Nice and cosy, always open”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Very nice and relaxed atmosphere, cosy terrace outside on a quiet street just 2 steps away from Piazza del Popolo. Open every day and serves lunch and dinner all day long, which comes in handy when travelling with kids and having several hours time-difference with your home country (in most places in Italy lunch is served b/ween 12 and 3pm, then the restautant is closed until 7pm when it opens for dinner). Staff is really friendly and helpful, we dined there for several days in a row, very kids-friendly. Food is good quality, reliable Italian home-style menu, long and diverse enough for different tastes.
