Delicious food with excellent wide variety of wines. The location of the place is very nice and you can enjoy the sun sitting outside. The staff is helpful, easy-going and very very friendly. I totally recommend parmigiana alla melanzane.

Amazing brunch and great value for money. Really can't understand why this place has any bad reviews. Customer service was perfect. Try the Trapizzno's

We had a recommendation from friend, that it's the last thing you should accept going to Rome, where 99% of the restaurants are very good. The food wasn't tasty at all and the service was very slow.

Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is
a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every
shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and
gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,

Hi! Sorry for my late answer. I am not 100% sure, but don’t think they had pizza. Lots of other great dishes though:)

Hello Stacey, as they don't accept e-mails, you will have to telephone them - perhaps your concierge can do this for you?. However if you wish to call them; here is an example "Desidero effetuare una prenotazione alle ore... More
