“Good gluten free option”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I need to eat gluten free and this restaurant was 2 blocks from our hotel. They definitely understand the what it means to prepare food GF. I had the cacio e pepe pasta and my wife had the carbonara. She ate GF too so we could share. We enjoyed them both. The caprese salad was good, but nothing to rave about. Service was good. Your location is on a quiet street so sitting outside was enjoyable but not much of a view of anything.

“Dinner Last Night in Rome”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We selected this restaurant for dinner based solely on their menu and proximity to our hotel. The service was good, the food was adequate, but neither of us would probably rave about it. We each had an appetizer and first course. Pasta was good.

“tourist trap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

overpriced. below average food. pictures on the website are not really what you get on your plate. seems like most of the dishes prepared way before and just heated prior to serving. buffalo mozzarella was a great disappointment - worse then anywhere else in Italy.

“Service Good, Food OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Food very heavy and greasy so if thats your kind of thing then this is the place. Service was great but compared to more fresh local offerings, this is not a great choice. Really just an average situation in an exceptional area!

“Good, no more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Close to hotel NH Veneto Vittorio, came along when stolling in The neighbourhood. Good resto generally spoken. Service depends on waiter, some are a bit of short and dry, others very open and friendly. Food ok, no more no less. Fair priced. Old bread for 6 EUR was a rip off, reject this!! Rest was ok.

Gentile Signore,
la ringrazio per la sua recensione. devo dirle pero' che il pane viene fatto da noi, e non comprato,
tutti i pomeriggi, quindi infornato intorno alle 17,30. lei avra' mangiato intorno alle 20,30
e' vecchio un pane di 2 ore di vita?
cmq se ci tornera' a trovare le mostrero' con piacere la preparazione del pane.
un cordiale saluto
stefano ajelli
