We went there for dinner, based on the review. We were the only ones in the restaurant, and it was not that early. There were three options on the menu, 50€, 60€, 70$, per person. I spoke with the owner? We ordered a la carte,...More

Food was great, service staff were courteous and polite. The owner was sleazy, sneaky and pushy. It was uncomfortable to look at the menu and order what we liked instead he was pushing for item we did nit appreciate. To make matters worse, when it...More

Incredibly glad that we dined at this neighbourhood restaurant after an afternoon/evening at the Villa Borghese. We stumbled upon this place. By chance, we were walking by, and stopped to read its posted menu that emphasised high quality seafood. We were the only tourists among...More

After reading on trip advisor this was nearly 5 stars me and husband visited this restaurant as he loves seafood. The menu was very limited and horrendously overpriced. I ordered the recommended ravioli which was nice but nothing special and there must have been 5...More

We were beyond disappointed in this place. On a 17-day trip, this was by far the worst meal/experience we had. Let me run through it to explain why. I was tempted to give them a two-star review for the nice people and service, but the...More

"But, if you try sometimes, you get what you need." Poorly made cherry tomato basilico. Having unripe tomatoes and no basilico makes for an uphill battle. I also don't like 'al dente'. I couldn't finish the dish. The side of fried artichoke positively ruined the...More

Booked a table based on other good reviews, what a mistake that was. We arrived and were given a badly placed table right by the kitchen door, we should have just walked out there and then but we didn't. We were given a small tray...More
