Very nice little restaurant, service staff is very friendly. We had bruschetta, the fettuccine with prawns and the baked salmon and as dessert a tiramisu with strawberries: all dishes were perfect. We took the adress with us so we can come again during our next stay in Rome.

“Worst restaurant in Rome”
Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Due to time we couldn't do a comprehensive search for a place to eat so we took a chance on this.
The place is too brightly lit and looks like someones front room.
Service was appalling . Asked for a beer which never came.
4 people were in the process of walking out and arguing with staff.
We paid the hefty bill for the water and left.
Food on all the tables was left by customers and looked disgusting.
Worst restaurant in Italy bar none.
Avoid at all costs.

“Bad, bad, bad”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This was really a bad experience! We had pesce spada and saltimbocca. the saltimbocca was just a tasteless piece consisting 50% of fat covered by cheap ham and drowning in tasteless sauce. The swordfish was OK, the "green salad with grapefruit and pin nut" was just an a bowl of brownish, old salad leafs without anything else (no grapefruit, no dressing, no pin nuts). The white wine was of low quality, tasting like being in an open bottle for a week.
We complained about the fatty saltimbocca and it was replaced by a filet which was not exceptional. This was the worst food we had in Rome.
