The restaurant staff went above and beyond to make our dining experience delightful. My autistic son didn’t like the look of the meal that he had ordered, and refused to eat it, they took it away immediately and brought another dish that was to my...sons approval! The waiting staff did everything they could to make our experience enjoyable. On a general note, the service was really quick and attentive, and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. Definitely a restaurant to visit.More

I am learning if someone on the street tries to get you to come in, keep walking. It was hot outside and the hawker said “we have a table with air conditioning.” That sold my wife. They may have had pair conditioning, but it might...not have been working properly because it was almost as hot as outside. They had one rotating fan in the room for 6 or 7 tables. Should have left then. No tap water Available so ordered a 4 € bottle of water. What came was a refillable milk bottle with the restaurant’s name on the side and inside was top water. Rome tap water is easy to tell by the (not bad) taste. A rip-off. As for food, the salad was pretty good, but the pizza was substandard. Avoid this tourist trap.More

Stopped by for a bite to eat after a great colosseum tour! Food was delicious, service was excellent! Can’t remember the name of the waitress, but she was very pretty and from Azerbaijan :)

We asked to come in for drinks and were told we could. Then went to order drinks and told we needed lunch. We asked to share a pizza as it was an odd time to eat. Apparently, that was not the right thing. Service was...ehh and food was only slightly better. Water tasted like it came from the bathroom tap. Felt like a tourist trapMore

This is a trap, the food pics here are far from reality. - Everything was dirty - tables, menus, restrooms (don’t even dare to go down the restroom, you’ll regret your decision). - They mistakenly brought hot coffees instead of cold ones and when we...told ab this, what did they do? Easy, just put some ice in our hot cappuccinos and brought it back (genius!). - Tables were unsteady and almost broken, we could hardly touch them not to ruin the waters on it. - One of the serving staff members (in the same suit btw) was trying to order the mess in the toilet (I mean, what’s the hell!). Don’t go, don’t go, don’t go!More

The food was great and very friendly service, although the toilets could do with a clean. It’s altogether a great restaurant. 😄

I guess everything with view of the colosseo doesn’t have to be great. I think this restaurant offer great service and view, but the food is only not really up to Rome standard. Go for view and service, definitely not for for food.

We ordered bruschetta to start. They were three times the price we usually paid but we really wanted them so we said this once we’d pay it. Everything was expensive. Waited and waited. No bruschetta. Then it came.. and the main course shoved onto the...table with it. I said to take it back until we had eaten our bruschetta but they wouldn’t do it. I was complaining about it. The waiter went off to speak to the manager but never came back. Obviously the manager wasn't interested in dealing with my complaint. When I complained to another waiter later. he went off and didn’t come back either. I later realised why when I saw the manager, an unpleasant looking man obviously only interested in getting people’s money. The pizza was a disgrace as well. All dried up. I recommend avoiding this place. High prices and poor quality. In summary avoid at all costs.More

Amazing view of the Colosseum from our table. The food was fantastic and Roberto was a class act. He spoke perfect English but indulged our feeble attempts at Italian. Can't wait to visit again.

After visiting the colosseum we were looking for somewhere to stop for lunch. A staff member was stood outside and saw that we were struggling and invited us in and seated us which was so lovely. We were so glad he did as the food...was absolutely exceptional and the setting was beautiful. Patio doors were wide open overlooking the colosseum and the decor was gorgeous - hand paintings all over the walls - it was truly authentic Italiano. The prices were also good for where we were. The staff were all friendly, attentive and chatty. Cannot recommend enough! Oh and the pizza was the best I had in my entire time in Rome!More
