The location is breathtaking. You can seat and watch Rome as you never did. Then... the egg as a starter is really enjoyable. Then... we'll... besides something frozen the rest is cured and carefully prepared for you. Yes it could reach higher yet I appreciated the blend. Try the Trebbiano, it's great.

Great to have a lovely drink whilst watching the hustle and bustle of Rome from a distance. Reasonably priced and great staff.

Do not miss this place on your next trip to beautiful Rome! There is something for everyone here! The service was excellent and the portions of food were generous and quite delicious. One night I had the seafood platter and it was perfect. Another night I had the beef fillet with 3 pepper sauce! So delicious! And every night there... More

This is a great place to discover if you are looking for an overview of Rome, especially at night. The service is first-class and the menu is very good. It is a little expensive but well worthwhile. There was a live singer on the night we visited and that made it so much better.

Beautiful view of Rome; headed up before sunset (wear trainers for comfort and bring a bottle of water!) half way up you get a teaser, a little further and you get the full picture. Reward yourself with a gelato. You can also see more detail for €0.50c using the telescope. We booked a table for dinner to watch the sun... More

This was such a disappointment... Location: perfect. With awesome skyline views of Rome which at night time is beautiful. Staff: as you walk in they are very welcoming and we're happy to assist with some explanation. Menu: the menu had very limited options with similar variations of the same pasta and lots of fish/shellfish options which made my choices very... More

Made the brave (or foolish) decision to walk up the path through the park to the restaurant which resulted in a powerful thirst and great appetite. Its a good 30 minute hike. Well worth it for the view of Rome lighting up at sundown. Apparently Restaurant under new ownership and they still don't have a website up and running but... More

The view from outside the restaurant isn’t that great, yes it is at a high point, but you cannot see any of the stunning buildings in Rome (e.g. coliseum, Vatican) due to its location. There was a lot of people here and a lot of which were smoking, not a nice experience. Perhaps better to go during off peak times.... More

My wife and me wanted to have a panoramic and romantic dinner. We headed to "Café Lo Zodiaco" and got really surprised. The view was awesome, good food and very nice live music. All the employers were pretty kind and the place clean and cosy.
