Where else can you dine while admiring the old Roman mosaic floor two yards below the glass floor your chair is resting on? We arrived early (for Italy), and were the only diners for awhile. Our service was great, perhaps partly because our waiter had spent some time in the Netherlands, and was eager to practice his Dutch on me. The food was great, so was the wine. We did not feel like there was no value, the prices are high, but it is an upscale venue, after all! Tip: ask to see the upstairs, where the cardinal had his residence (17th or 18th century?). What a contrast, roman ruin basement, modern restaurant, historic (-looking?) upstairs!
