“Amazing Gnocchi!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

A fun find at the top of the Spanish Steps, this restaurant wasn't open for dinner yet, due to the weather. Beautiful outdoor patio, with a shallow pool, filled with turtles! I ordered the red snapper and tuna tartare for a starter, and my mother had the grilled octopus with pistachios, very delightful combination. We had first heard about this restaurant from a friend, who said the gnocchi was like dessert, and it did not disappoint! We ordered the cafe mousse for dessert - another treat! With three glass of Prosecco, the bill was a little over 100 euro - but worth it!

“Excellent spot for lunch at top of spanish steps”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I had lunch here today and there was a mix up with our reservation. The manager handled the miscommunication and seated us immediately. Service was impeccable and food well prepared. We only had salads but all food was excellent. Great view and atmosphere.

“Amazing salads”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We spent 6 days in Rome recently and ended up eating these great salads 3 days in a row, we simply couldnt go anywhere else or choose another dish - just because they were so great!

Also nice staff, location on top of the spanish steps towards the park Borghese, and the view is beautiful:)

Highly recommened for a lunch meal with awesome belgish waffels for desert! ;)

Love from top of Norway.

“Stunning views”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

This is a nice spot to get away from the crazy crowds around the Spanish Steps with fabulous views. The food is fine and the coffee is great.
