“Nice Location, Decent Food, OK Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

This place is located in a nice quiet spot just a bit off the beaten path. The patio is very spacious and comfortable. The food was just fine. Of course, they charged us the coperta (bread fee) even though we didn't request bread (which is not legal, but extremely common at most restaurants in Rome). We had Fettuccine Bolognese, Bombololotti Amatriciana, and the shrimp Risotto - plus caprese salad and carciofi alla Romana. They were all fine. Nothing notably good or bad. The wine was yummy (a Vermentino). The service was mildly snotty, but tolerable.

Next time I'm in the neighborhood, I'd probably try another place. Not because this one was so flawed, but it wasn't good enough to make me think I couldn't do better somewhere else.
