We went in following the advice of one of our hotel attendants who asked us to tell them she sent us. The restaurant is based in a cellar that is decorated to look like a grotto. As we sat there and waited and waited and waited for our food we began feeling like prisoners. Looking around us we saw that the feeling was shared. The slow time to serve was followed by tasteless soup, bad tasting pasta our children were served ( one of them got a stomach flu afterwards and this was his only meal before... ) veal escalope in mushroom that swam in what tasted like mushroom soup made from instant mix and a medium tasting Roman chicken (that was cold in the inside).
The staff were very friendly but could not counter the slow service, bad tasting food and cheesy classical music that sounded like it was taken from "best elevator music 1972".
The only thing that made this bearable was big TV they set up ( probably because of the need to compensate from the slow service ) that had a bloopers show that the kids enjoyed.
The price was similar to what we paid for in GREAT restaurants and the whole affair felt like a mistake. This was actually our last meal in Rome after 5 days of great food and we really wanted to enjoy ourselves but we could not.
To make a long story short, follow the advice in the title. Simply avoid.
