We had a really bad experience in this restaurant! In front of it we were looking at the menu when a woman came to us and began to present the food and the special offer of the day: a menu with bruschetta, pizza/lasagna and dessert! All of it for 10€. But now we know the reason of such price!!!!
The food was awful: the bruschetta was only bread and tomato... the pizza was "margherita" but it was only tomato sauce on a pizza ( freeze food taste better), the waiter forgot about my plate behind the table and we had to take it by ourselves!!! To finish, it was impossible to choose a dessert, they served us a really small and bad tasting "rum baba"!!

Don't go to this restaurant if you want to eat well!!!!

We were here for a festive family dinner in the end of 2013. However, despite the nice atmosphere (with live music), the food was almost tasteless, the service a bit too harsh and - as expected - the bill excessively pricey, although the argument goes to explain this is located within a few yards from the Fontana di Trevi and so on, but that by itself doesn't seem to justify such a lack of overall quality.
On top of this, the decoration was a bit too chaotic and consider also the toilets were over-dirty and included a flooded washbasin that prevented anyone from washing his/her hands...

Do not let the friendly guy outside fool you. The food here is absolutely atrocious. Four of us for dinner, not one good plate. I had the filet, or what they call filet. Freezer burned, leathery, could not cut thru it. They do not know what medium-rare is. My friend had the veal cutlet Marsala. It was tough and the sauce (that was supposed to be Marsala wine) was more like liquefied raspberry jam. Lounge lizard piano player was so loud you could not hear the person in front of you. On top of it all it was expensive. Never go there. There are lots of excellent restaurants in the area, pick a different one.

We got drawn in due to hunger and the promise of a deal. We left feeling unsatisfied and so disappointed we went to McDonald's to get food. That just tells you how bad this restaurant is. The bruschetta was burnt and stale; the lasagna was worse than the michelinas frozen ones you get in North America. It was salty and hard. The dessert wasn't the cheesecake the ad advertised. Instead we got this hard rock chocolate cake that tasted horrible. I signed up for trip advisor just to let people know how bad this place in. They'll try to solicit you with a deal but just walk on or if you're short on money, get a better deal at McDonald's!

Had I read the reviews first I would never of visited, however after sight seeing in Rome we discovered the Trevi Restaurant just 30 yards from the Trevi Fountain. It appeared nice (if somewhat pricey) but it was our holidays and we treated ourselves. Contrary too the majority of reviewers we actually enjoyed our visit. We found the restaurant clean (including bathrooms), service prompt, and the meal enjoyable. 2 glasses of white wine, 2 pizza, 2 cappuchino was 55 Euro. We expected to pay this price range because of location but we left happy and satisfied and the parrots in the cage were entertaining. Maybe the restaurant has made improvements based on there poor rating.
