My partner and I bobbed in for a spot of breakfast. It was pretty tasty and the waitress was very good, she even taught us a few bits of Italian. Menu could do with a bit it of work for my taste. Coffee was nice.

I ate two breakfasts and one dinner here while I was in Roma! The food here is very good. But food elsewhere in Rome is good too. So what sets them apart is the way they care for the guests and remember them. We had...More

The bistrot has a very nice decoration, vintage style. I recommend a visit to the Officine, especially to the centaurs: they will enjoy the recall to vintage motorcycles you can find in several details. As appetizers we tried the good the zucchini flan and the...More
