“Tour of Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We decided to make a reservation at Steps of Rome for lunch from our dinner party the night before at Al Dente. Julie from Al Dente told us that Steps of Rome is their sister company. Julie made the reservation for us. The next morning, right after we had our hangover relief soup from next door, we worked our way to the middle of Plazuela, to the Steps of Rome. Our long table was inside the restaurant and all decked out. My two buddies and I arrived a bit early because we were just next door but decided to settle ourselves at the table anyway. We had about 15 to 20 mins to spare......what to do beside talking about the past decades.....more San Mig Light of course. There we met Ed, the restaurant manager. A nice, friendly, person of a few words but he get things done. He made us feel at ease right away. Every dishes that the staff recommended to us were great and some like the Crispy Pata were ordered by friends that visited Steps of Rome before. To our surprise, we got complimentary appetizers and desserts. I had to ask Ed if what did we do to deserve it, his response was.....”because you guys were at Al Dente last night and knows how to party”.....niiiiiccceeeee, so what to do again..... We made another reservation for dinner later that day. I had been back to Steps of Rome about 3 or 4 times since then. Saw Julie from Al Dente there with the friendly and courteous staff. Ed, keep up the great work.

“Cheap Place for a party”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Held a party for 25 at this place, all you can eat Pasta and Pizza fro 99 pesos a head.
A lot more pasta than pizza but the pasta was tasty and appreciated by all. You can get unlimited Margahreitas for 150 pesos a head but the service is a bit slow.
All in all I would go there again

“Lousy SERVICE!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

My friends and I were strolling around Plazuela. When we get tired we decided to eat at this restaurant . The ambiance was good but the SERVICE is just AVERAGE! I called the attention of one of the waiteresses to ask for a Tabasco sauce but it takes her 10 mins. to serve it in which we were almost done....TSK!! And the 99 pesos meal is not worth it. Id rather eat at any fast food chain with the good service and good foods.

PS. Kindly advice your employees to SMILE..

“Love the Name, Love that it took me back to Rome but food was terrible.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Toughest steak salad. The pizza tomato sauce taste like canned Chef Boyardee... It's a small restaurant and service was bad.

“Great food for the price.The 99 peso lunch buffet is when to go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

All you can eat pizza and pasta at a nice italian restaurant in plazuela for 99 pesos? Its true, but the pizza has very little cheese on it and some of the pasta dishes came out cold. They happily heated it up for me. They try to make you order 1 slice of pizza and 1 pasta dish at a time, but you can just write down pizza 3x , its no problem.
