Very nice ambiance, the restaurant floorplan is such the you fell like being in somebody home. Cozy furniture and lighting fixtures, smoked mirrors and glasses all over the place. You soul gets ready for the food experience.... which is not exactly the same. The food is from a printed manu that is a bad KPI for an upscale restaurant... Ingredients when fresh are from the marke and thus menu shoul vary everyday. And infact the food is pretty standard save for the desserts which are ranking on the higher side. Prices are quite high but could have been worse considering the location.

That was the final point of our long weekend in Rome.
I believe the Chef currently (as of Nov-2012) has 2* in the Michelin guide.
All inclusive buffet brunch (with wine, water, coffee) for €50. Delicious selection of savoury and sweet dishes.
A few advice: book well in advance, arrive "early" (12.30) as it does get packed, and the room we were in was a bit narrow for all the customers, make sure to have an empty stomach so you can enjoy as many dishes as possible.
definitely worth to go there, excellent value for money. Tasty dishes and professional service

How does someone that serves such poor food, get such great reviews in the media? Maybe that he used to be a press photographer means he has the right contacts. The dining room was absolutley exquisite, one of the most beautiful restaurants I have eaten in. But the food ranged from mediocre to very poor. There wasn't a single dish with merit. Even at half the price I would have been disappointed, let alone the astronomical bill that arrived at the end of the evening. The odd thing was that the chef spent the whole evening in the restaurant, chatting to obviously famous Romans, helping serve and laying tables. Why wasn't he in the kitchen? I've never seen this before in an upmarket restaurant. My conspiracy theory is that he can't cook but wanted to glamour of being a famous chef. So he set up this restaurant and gets someone else to do the cooking and takes the credit, expect there was no credit this time round.

On weekdays they have a buffet lunch (except for in August, apparently), which is really good value for money. Definitely recommend it, but for when they don't have the buffet, it's a bit expensive for what it is. The food is still excellent, the atmosphere is fantastic and so is the service, but try to go for the buffet if you can. Still one of the best places for Sicilian food in Rome.
