“Great neighbourhood Pizzeria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

My husband and I stayed nearby this
Restaurant and had dinner here 2 or
3 times while in Rome. The food was
excellent. Pasta, great salad caprese,
delicious pizza and the bowl of mussels
was very tasty. Prices were extremely
affordable and place had lots of locales.
Felt like the real deal as opposed to
Tourist traps in Centro. Service was
a bit slow but we were on vacation so
in no particular rush. Will absolutely
dine again next time.

“Merely okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

The ambience inside resembles a large waiting hall, a more luxorious one though. The waiter was friendly, but pretty slow.
The portions were large, the foods quality and taste was okay, but not spectacular.

“Good choice and value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2012

Came across restaurant whilst staying at nearby Mecure eating there on 2 occassions.

Found the menu suitably varied with pizza (which were good) and grilled meat & fish. Staff were friendly and there wasn't the usual (Roma rip off & excessive) cover charges. Frequented by locals in what is a reasoanably 'upscale' area outside the immediate city centre.

The inside decor (prehistoric hunting scenes with mammouth etc) is interesting but lacks in atmosphere. Outside tables best for people watching.

Good quality food. Used by locals which is always a good sign.
Fairly expensive but gave value. Lovely dining room.

“Don't go there”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2011

There are many better places in Piazza Bologna. If you don' want to wait, and wait and wait... Don't go there! Food isn't so bad, but the waiters forget everything, sometimes the cakes aren't fresh, pizza sometimes is good, sometimes not. The general impression is that there aren't professionals working there.
