We went to this restaurant because it was near our hotel and because it had good reviews on tripadvisor but we were really disappointed. The portions are small, the waiters can't speak english and could not explain what was in the dishes and the hostess my god by far the least friendly person i met. She never smiled and i had the feeling she wanted us out! The prices are not value for money especially considering the portions and we had to ask for bread as they did not provide any. Never again to this tourist trap!

Had the certificate of excellence sticker from Trip Advisor on the window...so thought about giving it a crack....Very disappointed...must be fill-in staff at the moment or something?>?

service unknowledgeable, no customer interaction - I had the lamb & potatoes - cooked more than once and pretty average...alfredo pasta - better in the microwave packs...there are heaps better places in Rome and prices are not different!!!!

Blonde lady concierge at the from door....say hi or hows your dinner once in a while instead of just standing, watching and doing nothing....you probably dont want to ask as the answer you would have got from me was ....s_ it!!!

This was near our hotel and it was great for lunch or dinner. It was my son's favorite pizza (Quattro Formaggio) and all of the other meals where fresh and tasty.

Recommended by our hotel (the Colosseum) this looks a little ordinary from the street but it dished up some of the best pasta we've ever eaten.

We were recommended to this restaurant by the hotel where we were staying as we wanted to eat nearby on our first night in Rome. However, we were so impressed we ate here every evening & also had lunch on our last day before travelling to the airport - the food was wonderful, a very varied menu, the house wine excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. The restaurant was very clean, the atmosphere relaxed, we didn't feel hurried but the service was well-timed. We felt it was very good value for money & no hidden extras! Really cannot fault it.
