Staying in Rome for four days, we decided to try this lively restaurant for a light dinner. As you walk by it it is quite inviting but beware! Menu is extensive albeit seeming high (4 EU for bread). We ordered a buffalo mozzarella and cherry tomato pizza and a soup along with two glasses (half glasses served) of house white wine. The service was below mediocre and were made to feel almost unwelcomed as non-Italians. Once the plates arrived after a long wait, I was disappointed my the looks of the pizza. It was to be a sauce less pizza with fresh cherry tomatoes atop. What I got was a pizza with an acidic sauce followed by SOME mozzarella with cooked cherry tomatoes and basil leaves. In all honesty, I've had better pizza on the streets of Rome. Not to mention a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant just a block from this restaurant. The price was high for the bad quality of food and service but I was there already. I was cutting a piece of my pizza when I saw something moving. We're my eyes playing tricks on me? Oh, NO! There was a green worm slowly making its way from one end of my pizza to the other. At this time, I was shocked and disgusted. I called the waiter and showed him the little insect still crawling in front of his eyes. He said, "I'm so sorry" and took the plate away. He soon approached the manager/owner and reported the incident.
The manager/owner then came to explain to me that this was merely a little work that lives in the leaves of basil. Ok. NOT ON MY FOOD THOUGH! He said they were making me a new one and I declined. The cost of this disappointing experience was a mere $25 EU for a cup of soup and two half-glasses of house white wine. Please add the hour-long dreadful experience into the mix.
I will never go to this place again and urge you not to as well. For these prices, food should not come insect-laden.
