I had aperitivo for the happy hour today at the Piazza Capranica restaurant (10 euro all you can eat from 6 to 9 pm) and was very disappointed. Fried food was cold and greasy. Only one beer (draft Peroni) and no wine list. I ordered a bloody mary and it was embarrassingly watered down. The food was abundant but bad bad bad. Mostly fried stuff, but cold and greasy. Rice supply were tough to the point of being unedible. Fried artichoke ditto. The waiters were more interested in picking up a couple of girls customers than serving the rest of us. They smoked and littered the area with their cigarette butts.

Yes you can sit ourside in a wonderful Roman piazza, but better take a walk around to see the beautiful buildings and eat elsewere.
Avoid at all costs.

I know that bars charge extra if they bring your drinks to the table which is fine. However I did not expect to be charged 9euro for a child's ice cream! When I queried the bill and complained the waiter got angry justifying the bill with the high rent they have to pay in that area.... Clearly they were taking advantage of us. Tourists, be warned and avoid this place like the plague.
