Attracted by watching thru the street window as the pizza chef made pies in the wonderful wood fired oven, it was a dining experience we quickly regretted. Think of Borat as maître de overseeing the Three Stooges as waiters & busboy, that's what you get. We ordered lasagna and a pizza. The food was just fine but the service & accompanying drama was a joke. Maybe the street side service is better, but inside, which seemed to be named something else with the same menu, was a lousy experience. Too bad. This is a well located spot that could easily make a good impression with much better management.

The good part is that the views / ambiance was wonderful (even romantic) and the food was quite good. The bad part is that the service was lackluster (even by Italian standards) and quite overpriced with some attempts to add extra fees to the bill. That was quite disappointing since the food was so good. I would advise to skip this place, and look for something different if you're a tourist.

The food is normal, but the waiters are terrible, I waited for 30 minutes the menu and more 30 minutes to order. The waiter didn't note the dishes and forget one of them. The menu don't have all the meals and drinks. The treatment is terrible, if you are looking fora restaurant at via veneto, don't choose it.

Lovely pizza, typical Roman with a very thin base, I really enjoyed it. The beer was very expensive and the service was just adequate, in that you got served, but with no real service or friendliness from the waiters.

From outside it looks good and they have a wood fired pizza oven which is usually a good sign but the service let it down and the cost of drinks which are not shown in the menu was too much
