“Lovely Service and Food at Ristorante Tema”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We did not have a reservation. When we walked in at 9 p.m. on a Friday night, they politely asked if we could come back in 30 minutes, which we did. We found that many main dishes in Italy are not served with greens. So, we ordered a seafood mix, the grilled seasbass and a side of vegetables. It was all delicious. Despite being stuffed, we went for dessert because we couldn't resist. We got the panna cotta and berries, which was lovely.
The service was kind. It was an intimate restaurant, and we really enjoyed our time there.

“tasty pasta”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I would recommend any sort of pasta here, it is very tasty but comes in small portion :) The tiramisu (served in a cup) was good but too creamy for us.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, with friendly staff.

“Great food and oustanding service.”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

My husband and I decided to go to "Ristorante Tema" based on Tripadvisor reviews.

It was a good decision because the food was very tasty and the service was oustanding. It was

a really nice ambiance and deserts were awesome.

I will recomend it and we would dine there again. Reasonably priced.

“Tasty food, amazing staff!!!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We found this place suddenly and host on entry saw we cant decide and invited us. This man was absolutely friendly, perfect speaking english and very very polite. We didnt make booking there but he found table for us, tired walkers after kilometres:)
We ordered 2 dishes of pasta and white wine. All staff was very friendly and they NOT cheat how others in Rome (for example bring smth what you not order and then include it to bill). Place is really cute and these bottles wall look nice.. Food was tasty!
Thank you, dear staff and that man-host! Sei molto gentile. We will come back. A presto! :)
Strongly reccomended.
P.S. I attache photo :)

“Unforgettable, in a bad way”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We went to Tema for dinner upon our hotel's recommendation, also because we can walk there. I ordered risotto with langoustine. I got a sad plate of risotto without langoustine. Glaringly obvious when the table next to us received the same dish with the actual seafood. Service was slow. It was a sad dinner all around.

Good evening, forgive me but sometimes enough to better assess and then instead of giving expression evaluation is completely out of place.
I would like to point out that we are always delighted with the positive opinions and we treasure those negative because they give us the opportunity to adjust the shot, but an exchange of dish is really worthy of a response.
Dear lady, the dish that you have chosen is RISOTTO WITH CREAM CREAM SCAMPI, it is created with the prawns, but are crushed in the preparation of the same, this is to inform you.
While the other plate of which you speak the next table, was not risotto with scampi sauce, but TAGLIOLINI LOBSTER that is served with half a lobster.
Forgive me again lady, was just to give her sufficient knowledge.
