Reviewed March 13, 2013

We were drawn in by the frescos and enjoyed the first couple of courses of the 28 Euro Agustus meal but after that YUCK! tasted like a bad TV Dinner!

“Warning Hell's Kitchen”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Please be aware of this terrible place, the atmosphere is very deceiving!! The hostess at the door will entice you with fresh fish and pasta and pizza specialities. We entered and ordered a house wine which was horrible (worst ever, 14 Euro Urine), sparkling water which had no sparkle, a seafood antipasto which was a packet of frozen seafood which was left to thaw and served on a little salad. The bread seemed to be a week old. we decided against having our main and asked for the bill, no discount was offered even though we could only manage a mouthful of wine each and partially finish the starter. They billed us 38 Euro for a starter and horrible wine! I have eaten all over the world and this was the most horrible place i have ever been to! Do not go there it is disgusting!!! We ended up moving to a restaurant a few meters up the road to finish our dinner!!
The only good thing about this place was the olive oil and i know they didn't make it!!
WARNING AVOID AT ALL COST!!!!!!!!

“Convenient Authenticity”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

It was difficult around the Trevi Fountain to find non-touristy, authentic Italian cuisine. Taberna was one of the best close options that we found and enjoyed the pasta, bread, Caprese and Red Table Wine.
