We passed in front of this restaurant and had the regular menu. To our surprise, people kept getting into with leaflets which advertised a discounted menu, to which of course we were told we were no more entitled and that was not mentioned at all outside or inside the restaurant. From the servings we could see on the other tables, they were exactly the same as ours. BTW the cuisine was a low rank one with everything drowned in low quality oil. House wine was nothing to remember. The cherry on the cake was that, despite paying 2 or 3 times what the others were paying, our rather expensive check even contained a 10% service charge, not mentioned anywhere: not on the menu (there is even one published on their website), not outside the restaurant and of course not told us by the waiter. Avoid!

We had been really disappointed with food in Rome but this restaurant was excellent value for really good food. Close to the Vatican too. We were a party of 3 adults and a 10 year old. W had the menu complete €13 and 10 yo the menu pizza o pasta €10 both include a drink (adults had wine) the 1st course was like an English main course, the 2nd course I had meatballs and for the side I had the season veg, both courses were very good. Dessert was a little odd but actually just what we wanted fresh pineapple and pana cotta. Highly recommend and ideal if you are in a budget as the price listed is the price you pay.

We had a great meal here. We tried the pizza, lasagna, and calamari. All were delicious! We ended our meal with cannolis, which are made in the restaurant and were excellent! Service was great, waiter was attentive and friendly. Prices are reasonable and is located near the Vatican. Totally recommend.
