Reviewed 4 February 2014 via mobile

The service was bad and the waiter insist of each person should order and the food
Is very bad not worth the price at all . The food is from microwave not freshly made . TERRIBLE RESTAURANT !!!!!! Do NOT COME HErE !!!! ITS a WASTE of MONEY

The pork is overcooked and the ravioli portion is too small for standard italian meal as i have tried in other restaurant which is at least 3x larger portion

“Quite a good restaurant, very close to Trevi Fountain”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

We stopped here after taking in the Trevi Fountain at night. There was no queue for a table at around 9pm, there were a fair number of people inside at this time. Our waiter was fluent in English and brought our drinks and food very quickly.

We both had pizza and it was absolutely fine, without being anything special.

The toilet is upstairs and definitely needs some work, it's almost impossible to get out of the inwards-opening door once you're in there!

The location is excellent, within 100m of the Trevi Fountain and I'm sure you could sit outside and hear the water in the summer.

Overall, not bad and worth a visit if you want to eat near Trevi.

“Traditional italian restaurant”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

The food was very good value for money in this restaurant.A traditional restaurant and appeared popular with locals and tourists. Waiters very attentive but we liked the way you were not hurried at all during your meal. Very friendly staff who were fluent in a variety of languages, good spot near Trevi

“Eat delicious,watch people and hear the fountain water !”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

Al Picchio is located just near famous Trevi Fountain in Via del Lavatore.For this location, I think it has extremely good value . Staff are very friendly and there is a nice atmosphere, particularly in outdoor seating where you can watch crowd and hear badger musicians.We Pick bruschetta to start, and Margherita pizza for main. A delicious Italian food at an affordable price.

“Most of the meals cooked in the microwave”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Place was okay and service was great until I heard the microwave going off for nearly every meal coming out. Pretty dissapointed as the only one made fresh was the pizza!
