The service was good. The waitress was pleasant. The food was unfortunately bland. When the motzerlla and tomato salad came out, the cheese came out in one ball and not cut (i.e. straight out of the supermarket packet). Not enough tomatoes were were for the...More

We stumbled upon this place as it was only a block away from our hotel in Roma. We wanted simple and quick, which sometimes is hard to find in Italy. We enjoyed 3 different pizzas and some bruschetta to start. Everything was delicious and plentiful....More
