Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This was the PERFECT place for lunch. We had a friend recommend it to us and he remembered eating there five years prior. The service and food did not disappoint. We were in a hurry as well and they brought everything out quickly. The spaghetti...carbonara and pasta al salmone are definitely worth trying! A lovely atmosphere and enjoyable mealMore

The food and drinks are ok, we ordered special sets for 15 euro: bruschetta + pasta + drink. But be mindful of the bill: they brought us a bill with some random orders for 35 euros (instead of 39 euros for 2 sets)

We were here twice for a dinner. First time it was excellent. Very good pasta (they even prepared for us Dairy, Egg and Gluten free spaghetti Bolognese - perfect), only Cezar salad had a bit of burned bread on the edge). Second time (spaghetti Carbonara...and Cezar salad - without bread this time) was again great, but meat lasagna was partly hot and partly cold (it seems micro wave oven did not did it job, defrosting and warming up the dish). They offered us Dairy, Egg and Gluten free pizza, but forgot to tell us, that the dough (base) for pizza is not made by them, and it is actually pre-made (bought), the same we use at home - a bit disappointing, eating in Italy same (a little worse) pizza that at home...More

We (me and my friends) had a great evening at this place. The staff was very friendly and entertaining, the food was very good (especially the pizza) and we really enjoyed the cocktails. I can definitely recommend it!

DO NOT GO HERE! Read.... The WORST service in Rome. I live in Rome. I have been a student here for 5 years. I have never been treated as horrible as I was treated tonight. A pint of beer was spilled on my overcoat. I...had ordered a bottle of wine, and someone in the group ordered a pint of beer. In the course of the evening, an older wait spilled more than half of a pint of beer on my overcoat. I tried to wipe most of it off. I questioned the staff, when asking for the bill. I have also been a customer at the place (only because my friends would go here) in the past. I was never satisfied. A restaurant in the center of Rome, in one of the most popular squares, and they HATE the Church, HATE priests, HATE Catholics. I questioned the bill because I knew I would have to clean my overcoat by dry cleaning. The reality is, the staff member knew he spilled beer on my coat and did NOTHING to make recompense for that. A 30 minute conversation insued. The young staff members threatened to speak to the policemen in the square (I didn’t care, I am a legal student in Rome). I spoke to the police after this incident, which would not be acceptable in any respectable institution. DO NOT GO HERE!More

Went with friends for a drink after an evening meal elsewhere. Service was slow and haphazard. The drinks delivered were not the ones ordered and then a member of staff proceeded to spill beer all over my friend’s jacket. Rather than comping the bill in...order to compensate for the damage to the jacket and the AWFUL customer service, my friends were interrogated by the staff and intimidated by them, being made to feel as though they were in the wrong for asking for credit to the bill to be applied because of the staff member spilling beer all over my colleague’s jacket. The staff are rude, inefficient and have zero customer service skills. I used to frequent this bar regularly when it was under its previous management. The current staff appear to be foreign and not Italian and they do not seem to understand basic western customer service standards. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.More

Had a wonderful time with my daughter. The host, Ciro, and our waiter Mario, made us feel like family! The wine, antipasti and focaccia - don’t miss it when you are in Rome!
