Don't be taken in by the friendly man outside urging you to come in to his family restaurant with the freshest food. First off, the food was not all that great; in fact it was our least favorite meal in Rome. Secondly, you are given bread whether you want it or not, and you will pay 2 euros per person for it. And you will not be treated like family. The worst part for me was the waiter saying service was not included in the bill when the menu states it is automatically added (12%).
I wish we had followed advice about not going to an establishment with employees outside urging you to come in or to a place that obviously caters to tourists, with the menu in multiple languages. That is sound advice, and if you want a good meal in Rome, I suggest you follow it and avoid Ristorante La Tavernetta di Pepi Claudio.
