First of all, the food was fine - good, hearty traditional Roman fare. But we were in Rome for 4 days and thanks to Tripadvisor, we had plenty of good meals - with a little foresight, it's not hard to eat well without being ripped off.
The prices were average for Rome, but in this case the service was indifferent, the atmosphere dated and the neighborhood unpleasant.
The "cherry on top" (and the reason for my one-star review; otherwise I'd probably have given it three) was the lack of an official receipt - just a handwritten list of numbers - which does not bode well for the restaurant's honesty in a country where tax evasion is a terrible problem. It's actually illegal for a restaurant not to give a proper receipt, and the client can be fined too if stopped by the Guardia di Finanza without one.
