I’m Italian and I know what is the reason behind the “coperto” fee . it had a reason back then when you were giving a proper seat , bread and some good time allowing you to stay at the table as much as you wanted consider a good balancing between food and accommodation for which you were more than happy to pay an additional fee for a convenient menu at a reasonable price, but nowadays... wow, being charged 2€ per person I think it's just out of place and a bad habit to be honest. Infact, i would somehow accept to pay that same extra “coperto” fee ( 2€ ) if distributed into different dishes and voices just for the sake of not seeing that you are still paying this SERVICE FEE called Coperto. considering also that the price and the menu is not cheap at all.
Something else to watch out is the house wine. it's served in a FIASCO CHIANTI bottle , just this invites you to drink it because it looks nice to your eyes and brings back good memories …but you pay for what you drink and you won’t know what’s the cost for ml and the cost for it. now, I’d lie if I said it wasn't good, but when you know how much I paid for it, I had a kind of bitter back taste since I couldn have had a higher wine quality by getting a proper bottle coming from distribution and the not a draft one.
anyway, it's not all that bad. infact, by walking into this lovely , and I repeat , lovely restaurant you get a good feeling to have stopped to the right place. it has a great vibe, it shows you how much you can do with such a small ambient and make it attractive with very little furniture... and the theme of the TRAM makes it cute especially with all those pictures hanged on wall which remind you where you are by giving you a bit of background of the area, Porta Romana. Not to mention the unique counter , replica the front of a Tram, from which dishes go in and out . very appropriate.
Well, food was good , their onion soup was above average and their fried artichokes were simply amazing. they reminded me my childhood recalling when my mom was making it, but there were by far much better.
so, all good. not sure if I’ll be back unless they will review their menu cost for which even a normal side cost you 6€, a bit too much for a fake easy down place .
