“Worst Meal in Rome”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

The title probably makes it seem worse than it is. Simply put, we had a lot of good meals in Rome, and this was the one we liked the least. Actually - we didn't like it at all. We only came here after a long day of sightseeing elbow-to-elbow with tourists at the Colosseum and the Roman Forum because it was the first thing we saw that looked decent and had outdoor seating. Me and my partner ordered a pizza and pasta, respectively, and both were flavorless. If you're starving and desperate in the area, fine - go for it. Just know that you're "throwing away" a good meal you could be having in a city with such great food.

“Nice to cool off under the vines”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Valter the legend "Carusso" ... friendliest service we have experienced to date, made a difference to the total experience. (Waiter was very amusing and sang through our order and more). We had said, after 4 hrs of site seeing, that we first wanted a relaxing refresher & would then order - Valter was very accommodating & did not rush us through our cold gold reward. When we did eat, food was very good - first steak I had tried & it was good (maybe could have done with a bit more zing in the pepper sauce). Rest had pastas which were good. All round a good experience ( under some welcome shade provided by the vine leaves, which added to the ambience).

“Decent Food”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Overall the food was ok. My family was starving after visiting the Roman Forum so this fit the bill. I will say that the Pizza with mozzarella, tomato and basal was actually very good. The rest of the meal was just ok and a bit pricey as well.

“Lively atmosphere, great location, tasty food.”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Went to this restaurant for lunch between visiting the forum and the colosseum. We were seated outside under awnings and the waiter, Valta, provided the entertainment with his singing and general enthusiasm. We were aware of some people who had to wait a long time to be served, however, the service is such that you have to actively attract the waiter's attention when you require service, bear this in mind, and they were quick to respond creating a relaxed atmosphere as we could eat at our own pace! The food was also great, we had pizza that was simple but very tasty and reasonably priced. Overall a highly enjoyable lunch.
