Wish we had read on here before trying this place. Came across this place and saw there were barely any empty tables left so thought that was a good sign...........big mistake. Tables outside are on quite a slope and very crammed together. After nearly 45 mins of waiting, whilst others that had ordered after us received their meals well before us, our main courses (a pasta dish and the beef fillet with green pepper sauce) arrived and were stone cold. Complained about the dishes and they offered to make new ones but we paid for our drinks and left. On top of this there was a homeless man eyeing up people's plates for leftovers and was actually hanging over one of the occupied tables.......none of the staff seemed really bothered about getting rid of him. So yourselves a favour and avoid this place.

We stumbled across this restaurant while walking around Rome. It is pretty close to the "Spanish Steps". The service here is very friendly and efficient. We ordered a couple of the salads, a meat dish and lasagne. All were very tasty and more than enough to satisfy. The restaurant is located on a narrow street. I would suggest sitting towards the inside of the outside seating arrangement. We sat on the outside and had several close calls with cars passing by (albeit slowly) within inches from our heads. Made for an entertaining evening.

We got a black based pizza with a green egg, tasteless carbonara and lasagne. We told them to take the un eaten pizza back only to be charged for it. We waited about 20 mins before they took the pizza off the bill. Save your yourself the bother and pass by this ikea inspired restaurant! I wish I had.

Prices are extortionate (€14.90 for a bowl of vegetable soup). Service is abysmal. 30 minute wait for the above soup which was cold. The abandoned pizzas at surrounding tables should have been a clue. Save yourself the headache of eating here and look for some of the more excellent restaurants in the area.

By all standards, this place was awful..even more so in Rome where we had great food experiences until today. Service is non-existent, food terrible and we are still waiting for the bill when asked 15min ago. Some good tunes on the radio saved our ears cause our mouths drowned into the culinary abyss
