The Maiz is as small, as the quality of the food and the service is, these guys rock, and they make you feel very wellcome in their little Venezuelan restaurant. They will do their best for explaining you the tastes of the food and guide you through the ingredients. Don't miss it, if you know Venezuela's food, come, if you don't is a good place to get a nice introduction.

The food is good BUT the waiting time is horrendous. We were there yesterday at six pm (the only ones) and our order wasn‘t even that big, so it‘s a big no-no to take over 40 minutes for a few empanadas. I wouldn‘t recommend making an extra way there, I don‘t understand how this is a #6 rated restaurant in Rome. Rome must have really horrible eating places for this to be one of the top picks.

Hi!
We’re very sorry about what happened yestarday.
Maybe we didn’t mention that we make everything at the moment so you can eat good food and especially FRESH food which is something that you can’t find very easily here in Rome.
It takes like 30 minutes to re-prepare things like our beef or our chicken cause we make everything daily.
We’re sorry but we’re okay with the fact that you liked our food, that’s what really counts.

Amazing Venezuelan food! The original taste, I ate a lot of the things in the menu in one sitting. Could not stop eating.
Also original Venezuelan drinks, the maracuyá juice is perfect. Colita and Malta
And a great friendly environment, loved the place.
100% recommend.
If I come to Rome again, I will stop by for sure.

Recommend to everyone who would like to try Venezuelan food!! Found this place by accident just when we arrived to Rome and LOVED IT (important to mention - my fiancé is Venezuelan!)! Definitely add it to your 'to try' list!! All was delicious and so affordable!

So lucky to have stumbled upon this little piece of heaven with quick, easy and extremely tasty South-American food, served by the friendliest of people! Perfect lunch spot after the Vatican - or just in general for a break from Italian food;) just sit down at the bar and indulge! Try the plantain dishes!!! And the empanadas! And the salsas! Well all of it really! The location itself is rather small - but it has a big heart!
