I can´t say anything bad about the food, it was excellent. But in Rome I have not met such as ignoring staff like here.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was very warm and welcoming. It was always very busy, but there was never a wait for a table which was a positive. The staff were all very polite and the service was quick most of the time. Busier periods...More

Our first meal in Italy, excellent pizza. Was taken by surprise that we got charged for both the water and the bread. We learned more about the practice as our Italy visit progressed. Did not get charged a seating fee though.

Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is
