“Tourist scam Restaurant”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

We stopped in the restaurant one evening as it looked nice with a secluded "conservatory like" veranda.
Being in Rome, the quality of Italian food is, obviously, fairly good. But not here.
Overpriced, very small portions: the delivery is not what the restaurant prides itself to be.

The Jamm Ja' pizza was a margherita with stodgy ricotta in the crust (delivered within minutes of making the order) and my mushroom and beef pasta was a very small portion for the price, very well presented but as it was delivered ever so quickly, it was clear that the dish had not been freshly prepared.

The prices are for a high quality fare, but what is delivered is a "tourist trap fast food" in a restaurant that does not even have a brilliant view to justify the surcharge.

Tap water was charged £3.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

If you're in the south you will find a great pizza that makes you forget those scattered around Rome. The pasta is also very good and "al dente". The place is very central, the price is not exorbitant and they are all very kind.

“Fab!”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant for lunch during our recent visit to Rome. We ordered bruschetta and a pizza to share and it was beautiful. Service was great and the waiter was friendly and spoke good english. The heat burners made the outdoor seating area lovely and warm. Brilliant!
