“Great environment - top prices, food tasteless”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

My wife, in laws and I had a quick one course sunday lunch at this place in May. It is an upscale sidewalk restaurant in a glass enclosure. Service was good, wine list very good but the food arrived and it was just bland and uninteresting. Of 4 meals we ate in Rome this was the most disappointing food. My wife's spaghetti with tomato and Basil came without any parmesan to season it and my cuttlefish and saffron risotto had no saffron taste at all - very disappointing. Not cheap at Euros 154 for 4. Best avoided.

“Expensive but good”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We had drinks and sandwiches in the afternoon, and these were great but pricey. I ordered a daiquiri which was wonderful and we also had smoked salmon sandwiches...but we did pay for the location and the fact that celebrities had visited this spot.

“Pricy but OK”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I had an eclair and cup of hot chocolate as an afternoon snack. Kind of pricy but it was nice to sit and relax. Wait staff extremely friendly and helpful. Others on my tour raved about the panini-style sandwiches.... never tried those but would like to someday.
