I was very intrigued by this place reading all of the reviews that cite it's gluten-free options. I was also, however, a bit nervous since it had so few reviews.
I guess what I can say is that my instincts were right on both accounts; there were many gluten-free options and the quality was average, and the few reviews were indicative a restaurant that seems to not have found it's own identity. .
The normal menu is quite large, but also varied,and not in a good way. There are Roman dishes, seafood dishes, a huge salad list...it just felt sort of jumbled. My friend said that her 'Cacio e Pepe' was edible, but subpar.
The interior was also confused, we felt. Like this restaurant is not sure if it's a fine dining place, or casual or a caffe. There were elegant touches, but, for example, the tables lacked tableclothes that covered the whole table. Oddly, even with all of the bright colors, it felt sterile.
The service was good, but seemed to 'serious' for the level of the restaurant.
Why such a low rating from me? First of because this was a totally forgettable evening, and secondly because I just can't believe this place is at number 2 on Rome's TA page. It seems crazy to me that this restaurant, which offers none of the usual warmth or character of an Italian restaurant, could be a place that represents what Rome's culinary scene has to offer.
