The food was terrible. Considering we has just come from gusta pizza in piazza santa spirito the day before, where the food was actually cheaper and absolutely fantastic (look it up on trip advisor - it has a 4.5 rating) there seemed no excuse to charge more for food of such awful quality.
I am not a food snob, and can appreciate food that is simple and average. But this was far below average. My pizza arrived and had been clearly just reheated, perhaps more than once judging from the texture - the overall taste was like a fat saturated circle of cardboard. My friend ordered a pasta dish, I can't remember which - it was conjealed and she found a long hair that definitely wasn't hers in it. On a visit to te bathroom i found it to be poky and dirty, which reflected the atmosphere of the restaurant - an 'authentic' looking exterior and reasonable seeming prices belie food that is greasy, tasteless, and carelessly prepared.
When we refused to pay the 'coperto' cover charge as we hadnt touched the stale bread and felt the food was awful the waiter requested that we do so otherwise it would come out of his wages. He agreed with us that the food was terrible.
Please - listen to me and do not disappoint yourselves with food that cannot even be deemed average, in a sordid and careless establishment whose only concern is to cynically squeeze tourists of their money. Instead, go to gusta pizza or osteria santo spirito in piazza santo spirito, both of which are similarly priced to this restaurant and whose offerings exceed those of San Marino in quality, presentation and taste.
