The food was inedible and uncooked. The staff were terrible and incredibly rude. We were a group of 6 and were treated like rubbish. They added things onto the bill which we didn't order. They refused to acknowledge this until they realised I could speak some Italian. Called us every name under the sun until we left. It was a... More

The food was some of the best we had in Rome. Incredibly reasonable prices. A real italian experience right near the steps to the Vatican. Could not recommend this place high enough!

This restaurant is located near to the hotel I stayed during my visit to Rome. As I just arrived at the hotel and feel quite hungry, I just walking around at the hotel and found this place. We hoped to get good famous Italian food, but the other way around we were very disappointed with the food served, the taste... More

We found this place by chance, just arrived in Rome and settled into our apartment, then looked for a place for some late lunch and found this place. We had pasta dishes and they were all delicious. It has nice seating area outside especially on the sunny afternoon we ate there, our daughter could run around while waiting for the... More

This restaurant was close to where we were staying in Rome. It was always busy so we thought it must be really good. When we got there we were seated on a dirty table, the staff were very pleasant and tried to clean our table but the cloth was still dirty. They didn't have a few dishes on the menu... More

Le Scalette has delicious food of all types. We had breakfast and dinner several times during our stay in Rome. The cappuccino is awesome and so reasonable in price. The pasta and pizzas are also good I would recommend the pizza covered in arugula. The service is also great. They hustle to take care of their customers.

My sister and I popped in for quick espressos and to use the toilet. Sister, who is fluent in Italian, asked for the coffees to be heated-up and the snappy reply from the very rude female barista was "They ARE hot"! End of......! Busy place, centrally located but I can't recommend it with such bad service.

Having read mixed reviews we tried it, I feel I have been mugged. 2 very small lasagnes 1 pathetic side salad NO bread a beer and a bottle of water over €30 with a €2 service charge. Don't go near it.

This restaurant was really near our hotel and very reasonably priced. We visited three times, once for dinner, once for drinks and again for coffee and breakfast. The food was always great, the cocktails were strong and coffee was good. The service timing were relaxed (Italy) and the service was polite, not over friendly. Overall I would recommended this restaurant.
