“Terrible!!!! Chose another restaurant! ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Firstly, I don't normally write bad reviews however, I want to save you the hassle of a bad experience!

The bad/horrible- the food was not great there are better places.

The servers normally don't bother me if their lazy. But for whatever reason I only saw the waitress twice once to take our order the next to deliver it. No bread although yet Male waiter gave all his tables bread. Had to ask for basics such as cheese to put on my pasta. Ok I thought that's ok, this will reflect in your tip. Just to find out gratuity is already added!!!! Hmmm ok that's why waitress didn't really care about service.

The good- price and location. That's it.

Thank Trisha M

Rispondo a questa signora solo per far capire agli altri come sono andate le cose ,la signora si è seduta nel nostro ristorante alle 16:00 e il problema principale è stato di avere del parmigiano nelle lasagne emiliane classiche con questo non voglio commentare altro!!!! Riguardo la pigrizia riscontrata nella cameriera,probabilmente è' stata dettata dalla sua completa non conoscenza della cucina italiana, ed a mio modesto parere della cucina in genere!!

“Good food, not pushy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Many establishments on Borgo Pio have hosts that are like sideshow barkers trying to get your business by yelling at you to eat at their establishment. Not Il Pozzetto. Very low key and relaxing, we ate inside, the outdoor tables were all taken. Had a very nice lunch here, red house wine was good, I had prawn risotto, my sons both had the carbonara which they thought was the best of the samplings they tasted from other places. If you are a tourist-free Wifi. Was nice to use the internet a bit not only at our hotel. The waitress was efficient but could have been a tad friendlier. The man who seated us and the woman at the cashier were very nice. I recommend it if you are in this neighborhood.

We've been to this restaurant last week and for sure i will return when in Rome ! The food is sumptous ,fresh vegetables and tasty meat . Even the pizza is delicous and the most important it's clean and tidy . I recommend it to anyone who is visiting Rome and it's 5 minutes walk from the vatican . Thank you for your hospitality !!!

“Very good food and excellent service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

First time in Rome looking for a place having dinner. Found this restaurant around the corner from our hotel. We decided to give it a try and didn't regret. It became our favorite for the rest of our stay.
Well worth trying.
