“$3 for tap water is equal to service charge”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

I would not recommend this restaurant. We walked by a number of cafes/restaurants and just decided on this one on our first night in Rome.

We didn't order anything special - spaghetti bolognese and a pizza. Both were okay. The kicker is we were charged $3 for water that came in a bottle but tasted suspiciously like tap/fountain water. We didn't leave any tip because of this.

“Avoid; there are lots of better ones!!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We have been travelling in Europe for 5 weeks and have sampled many restaurants and cafes . Ciro and Ciro near the Pantheon in Rome is the worst we have experienced. My wife had to send her Caprese salad back as her tomatoes were near frozen and therefore tasteless. The waiters attitude was almost dismissive, and his attention was appalling, we had to ask or chase for everything including oils, bread , and drinks. In fact their real problem was simply once they had persuaded punters to sit at their restaurant, they provide the minimum of service preferring to focus upon persuading other potential customers to eat with them. With over 4,000 restaurants and cafes etc in Rome this is definitely one to avoid !
