Great food, the prosciutto and mozzarela was great antipasti. Wine was great, main dishes: cacio e pepe, salimbocca romana both nice.

My friends and I found a 50% off coupon for this restaurant and booked it. The food was ok and service was good. However, when it came time to pay they said they would not accept our 50% off payment and we only ordered specific...things based upon that coupon. The total ended up being double what we have ever spent in two weeks in Italy. For the price the food was not worth it, for 50% off it would have been.More

Wowwwww I’m still not over the food we had here. We were struggling to find somewhere of good value so close to the vatican but we hit the jackpot here. Incredible seafood linguine, penne pasta and homemade canolis! The wine was especially nice as well....Really good value and service, a must visit!!More

Have the eggplant Parmesan! I will tell you, it is my absolute favorite dish and in this restaurant, it was the best I’ve ever had! Not a fan? No worries! My husband had the pasta with shrimp and salmon in a pink sauce and thought...he was in heaven. This restaurant, you can’t go wrong, everything is excellent and the prices are quite moderate.More

I was fairly unimpressed following having chosen the restaurant because of the relatively high average rating. I thought the service was slow, the value was not so good, and the salad which i ordered was definitely lower standard than I could get at home. I...got the salad with prawns, and while the prawns were nice and fresh, they were peeled and chopped however some of them still had small bits of shell which was not pleasant to eat. Also the chef had left the fairly full, black intestinal tract in the prawn which I had to pick out myself. The salad which the prawn was on was bathed in oil and did not include the avocados and the salad definitely did not look like the picture. Also we ordered sparkling water and got spring water, ordered mixed bruschetta and were served tomato. They seemed very much not with it. And the bill was much higher than any of our other bills in Rome!More

We finished seeing the Sistine Chapel and were approached by a guy touting the fixed price menu. It was raining and we were hungry, so we decided to give it a try. The price was reasonable, but there's a catch. The portions were very small,...the food was average to sub-par, and you didn't have a choice of dessert, and they took every chance to add items to the bill (water). Waiters were kind of nice one minute, jerks the next. If you're not in a hurry, or rushed due to weather, go elsewhere. You get what you pay for, should be this places motto ...More

So when we where looking for somewhere to eat on our first night in rome we stubbled on this beaut of a restaurant that was very close by to our hotel near the Vatican. I order one of my favourite dishes, carbonara and my boyfriend...order chicken pizza. The food was out of this world There is no way that the food is microwaved as stated in a last review as it took at least half an hour for.our food to come out which im.not complaining about but it goes to show that its cooked properly. The price for the restaurant is very reasonable considering where its located.More
