Food was good, variety poor. Service very good. Small capuchino €5. 150 meters further from Colloseo €2.35. This is way too much.

Went there for a family dinner. The restaurant lacks hygiene. There is no such thing as desinfection after clients. Table cloths are dirty. Chairs are dirty. Menu is dirty. Waiters lazy. The spaghetti con vongole were too much salted. Not recommendable.

This restaurant sits opposite the Colosseum and it truly is a spectacular sight for you to feast your eyes upon when you’re not feasting on their delicious pasta! We took the set menu which contained a glass of wine, bruschetta, and a pasta dish for...€15. The carbonara was incredible and we mopped our plates up with bread. Roberto was an excellent host and made our dinner experience even more enjoyable. I look forward to returning when back in Rome!More

Myself and a couple more people visited Rome for the first time. We went to visit the Colosseum as tourists do and came across this restaurant. We were seated straight away and I had the MOST beautiful Carbonara. It was the best meal I had...in Rome. The people working there were lovely, welcoming and very helpful. I highly recommend this place to eat. Oh, and you have an amazing view of the Colosseum whilst eating too :).More

We stopped here for lunch after seeing the Colosseum to then go onto ancient Rome. They were very happy that I had a salad and the menfolk shared a margherita pizza. Providing an additional plate. The food was delicious and we were well looked after.

Against our better judgement we stopped at this place, tired and hungry, and invited in by the host at the front. It was obviously a tourist trap but at the time we didn’t care. Should have kept walking around the corner. The menu looked okay...and the atmosphere inside wasn’t too bad. Alas- a huge mistake. Each dish tasted like it had been from a packet. Prices were far too high for the quality of the food. We actually laughed when we tasted the gnocchi, it was that bad. The waitress was friendly enough but then asked for a tip at the end - we just gave a small one to get out of there as quick as possible!! Please don’t waste your money.More

Waiting to much to be served and I order a fresh orange ( i did’t ask for ice) and was 70% ice and the waitress was not polite!

Is such a shame that a good place, in a very good place and not cheaper offer a bad lasagna, cold from the beginning and really dry... First and last time.

The wife and I chose this restaurant based on its proximity to the Metro and the Coliseum. The food was very tasty, although not particularly well presented and fairly priced considering the locale. The service was functional, not especially inviting or welcoming. The drinks were...extortionately priced! €8 for a half pint of lager is enough to put me off returning.More

We ate here on the first night of our recent break to Rome. Seeing specials written outside we decided to give it a go. The service seemed to take forever, we were at least 30 minutes waiting after we ordered. I was served a lump...of shrivelled, lonely, looking lasagna with a few 'roast potatoes'. The lasagna didn't have much meat, or sauce just seemed to be reheated pasta with loads of cheese. It wasnt nice. The corners were burned and clearly reheated. The potatoes had that same reheated taste and were rubbery. It was fairly disappointing to be honest. One of those run of the mill, serve the tourists any crap restaurants. I wouldn't spend any money in there again.More
