“Terrible restaurant”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We spent our last night in rome looking for a nice restaurant to end our trip when we came across this place near the trevi fountain. Unfortunately it was a major letdown,we had 5 different staff waiting on our table and found most of them rude. The food was awful, the desserts were still half frozen in the middle and when we asked for the dessert menu we weren't given one and the waitress just pointed at the dessert stand cakes and said "chocolate,chocolate,chocolate" to each dessert. The food was overpriced,we had 2 pizzas(which were burnt) and 2 pieces of cake(which we didn't eat) and it cost €46. Overall it was disappointing and the worst restaurant we have ever been in.

“Lovely meal close to Trevi”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Ate a lovely meal here with Mum. Lasagne was cooked perfectly and pizza was very tasty. Had a meal deal of bruchetta, pizza and desert for €10. BARGAIN! Service was friendly but a little slow as they are so busy.

“Very Disappointing”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

We were lured in my their "great" special, but quickly was disappointed. I ordered what I thought was a glass of red house wine....apparently a bad glass of wine for 10€! Lasagna was not baked....no my idea of how a lasagne should be prepared. Tiramisu on the other hand was excellent! I would not recommend this restaurant.

I never expected to get so bad pasta in Italy. It was just terribly salted. The sea bass fish was ok. It was advertised as Pasqua speciality and we saw later another customer left the same dish full of pasta. The 'chef' explained us how it could be and how they cook it but no sorries at all. The WC has a slogan inside like 'meeting clean is the luck but leaving clean is the duty' but has no toilet paper and looks like antic Roman one.
The waiter's jokes about vodka for educated Russian sound quite stupid.

“Rip off”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The shrimp was cold and not fried, the Proseccio with no fiss (and they forgot it), and the pizzas under average. They did not have the wine I ordered. The prices was high! Stay away.
