“Good food but not as at Enoteca 2”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

The night we choose to go there, they had live jazz music which we loved to enjoy. The man at the door said that they have free tables and when we enter, they wanted to escort us at the basembent level of the restaurant, which we did not like. So we left but decide to go back after a wonderful meal we had at Enoteca 2 for a change. The food was very good and the service ok. I didn;t like the fact that they served us caffe at the end, which we said it wasn't for us but the server said it was. We thought that maybe they wanted to offer them but at the end they charge them. We explain that to our original server, he said that it was a mistake and his colleuge shouldn't insist that it was for us and that yes, we had to pay them since we drink them. I do not mind paying the extra 5 Euro but if I were at his possition I would say that it was ok not to pay,

“Best birthday meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Wandering around Rome late last night looking for somewhere different to the usual bar pizzeria and came across Enotecia Barbarini. Jazz music playing inside decided us and in we went. Very warm welcome from all the staff and we were seated immediately. Fantastic atmosphere, cool live jazz trio playing inside and large extensive menu. Reasonably priced wine and drinks. Our food arrived and everyone had different choices and everyone was happy with their food. Not something that usuallly happens in such a big group! Someone in our party of seven mentioned it was my birthday and the staff pulled out all the stops. A beautifully decorated plate of cakes with a big fizzing firework in the middle arrived along with our desserts and the band and staff and other guests sang me happy birthday. Service was great, food was lovely a terrific night in all. Will defiantly be going back if we are ever this way again

“Worse service ever. Spoiled my new year eve mood”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

This was the worst service we experienced during our Italy trip. We went there on new year eve and there was a 20% mark up in prices. That is fine provided the service and food is good. The food was average, service was terrible. When we asked the waiters for dishes to recommend, he said that he is busy. We need to decide on our own. He only recommended the dishes only after we asked the second time. Plus we ordered a pizza and he asked whether we are sharing. If we are sharing, he will asked the kitchen to cut the pizza. Unfortunately the pizza was not cut when it was served. I requested same waiter who took our orders and he asked us to cut it ourselves. If that is the case, why bother to suggest in the first place??? This is puzzling indeed.

“Price increased by 20% on holidays :(”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

I went on the 31st of December and the prices were 20% more than usual because it was on a holiday. As soon as you enter the restaurant... They give you a sheet with a note saying you with be paying 20% more than usual. WHAT A NICE GREETING!!! Really nice way of taking advantage of tourists -_- ! But overall very good food and "affortable prices".
