I stayed at hotel Artis and the reception recommended this hotel. Its great Italian food at a very descent price. The ambiance is really good. Outdoor seating in evenings. Staff are simply great..they speak English and they really help to choose.
Definitely i would like to visit again.

This restaurant came as recommendation by the hotel reception, who has previously worked in London hotels, as somewhere he'd take his mother.
So, upon checking on TA to reviews and in person around 6pm on a Sunday, there was no requirement to book for 0730pm. Looked a smaller version of Bella Italia (if you have experienced in the UK) - Pizza/Pasta/Steak.
Upon arriving, there were no tables available in the restaurant, but there was in the extended gazebo on garden furniture (plastic). After seating ourselves, we were approached by a sullen waitress asking for our order! We had no menus.
Upon ordering our half carafe of white & red wines, we waited for a first course. The wine was terrible, and if this is the 'house' preference, I wouldn't cook with it.
Further consideration of our surroundings (supermarket plastic gazebo, green plastic chairs) and seeing someone else's steak & chips arrive, without any finesse or a smile, we decided the Berni Inn chain should do well in Rome!
We decided to leave, before any food arrived, sharing our thoughts with the management who chose not to charge. The hotel reception were a little embarrassed!

Spett.li ospiti dell'hotel mi ricordo molto bene di Voi, siete arrivati senza prenotazione in una giornata piovosa ,avete scelto (visto che il ristorante era tutto prenotato) la location esterna .avete ordinato una cena completa per due persona e all'arrivo degli antipasti avete voluto insistentemente parlare con me delle cose che a vostro dire non funzionavano........capendo la vostra ostilità non ho cercato nè di fermarvi e se ben ricordo non vi ho fatto pagare nessun conto. ma concedetemi una riflessione per gli utenti di trip advisor a cui tengo; se come ultima sera da festeggiare in Roma avete scelto una trattoria a basso costo come la Carovana, avete preso un onesto vino della casa da 7 euro al litro ( benchè nella lista dei vini in bottiglia esistano prodotti di sicura eccellenza italiana da 12 a 43 euro a bottiglia) forse dovreste rivedere le vostre aspettative e budget di spesa , noi siamo e restiamo una trattoria low cost un po rustica ma sinceramente onesta.
cordiali saluti
la direzione

Our farewell dinner in Rome was a night to remember. Our group was given a private room and as we enjoyed many delicious courses, we also enjoyed the music of two talented musicians who treated us to Italian favorites between courses. The food was fresh and plentiful, the service was excellent, and the wine superb. I would go back to Rome just to enjoy another evening at that restaurant.
