We had just left the Michelangelo Square when it started raining heavily. We randomly chose a restaurant to seek shelther and have a lunch break at the same time. The waiter serving us was very polite, enthusiastic and cheerful. As the menu was purely in...More

我們覺得服務很差,他們沒有主動提麵包,最後確還是收1.5的餐桌費,上菜的速度也很慢,一度想離開不吃了,我們觀察其他亞洲旅客也遇到類似情況,有種族歧視的感覺。 We were treated with racism. The menu is mentioned that "pane e coperto €1.5" but they charged this fee without didn't any bread. Also, the service attitude was bad. Had a bad experience here and don't want to come back again.

The food is pretty nice but not amazingly good. It is worth a try if you are around the area. But it is very popular and gets quite busy so it is a good idea to book in advance. We did see people queueing.

At times it's not easy to find a place like this with dishes that are not too heavy and are well-balanced plus creative interpretations without being overpriced. . We had an excellent salad with brie and pear mixed in. The menu was not long but...More

Cannot understand how anyone could review this place as a tourist trap. Yes, there were some tourists, but during our lunch visit, 70-80% of the diners were locals and the restaurant was packed - inside and out. Given the size of the kitchen, it was...More

Easily the worst meal of our Italy trip so far. The seafood pasta dish was very watery on the plate. The lamb was tough and over cooked. The bruschetta was soggy. Bright spots: The strogliatelli pasta in pepper cream sauce was good. My fish dish...More

There was a service charge in most restaurants we visited, same as in the U.K. I guess.
