We have apartment in Rome, quite close to this restaurant. For reasons I don't remember, we stopped going there some years ago. The other night, my wife, who's Italian born, decided she wanted to try it again, with an American guest who's lived in Italy for several years. For the first course, we had artichokes, in season, both romana and fritti. Not great but ok. For pasta, we shared a dish of cacio e pepe and our guest had a different one. When they arrived, we all agreed they were very salty. When we complained, they were removed and one of the manager staff came and asked whether we wanted to try the same again or change. He then insisted, in a quite strong and nasty way, that cacio e pepe is naturally salty, so there was no point in repeating the exercise. He made no point about our guest's dish. The assumption was none of us had a clue about Italian food, which considering my wife's background, and my time here, was offensive. Rather than make more of a fuss, we continued with a main course, which was also not great but ok, and left promptly.
So much for the customer is always right! I don't think Paris (restaurant) will be seeing us again.
