We went in a busy time of day. Outdoor seating was filled but we wanted a more quiet atmosphere so ate indoors. Service good...food okay. My cheeseburger was more like meatloaf but the roasted potatoes and tomatoes were very good. Bar was nicely arranged but no seating. The beer was nice and cold. Not a big place and nothing out...

Actually the Pizza was very tasty and a nice place to sit and relax but the waiters are not very professional and just as we finished eating they wanted the table clean for the next customers. You will get your bill without asking for it.

I'm giving them 5* to boost their average because they must have been review hacked or pissed off the wrong crowd. They are a solid 3.5 for Rome, 4* by North American Standards. We ordered all the basics: Buffala Salad, Pizza Margherita, Penne Arabiatta and Spaghetti Ali'olio. All solid choices. Nothing to tweet home about but honest fare after a... More

Snarky snarly service. High prices. So so average food (some of which is advertised as frozen....why?) and icky shared bathroom. What's to like? Nada. Don't go. It's a little tourist trap by the Spanish steps. You deserve better.

Had I read the Trip Advisor postings, we would not have gone here. Our experience turned out different than most others. Our waiter was patient and polite. Caprese salad was ok. I ordered vegetarian antipasto and the green beans, eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini were fresh and tasty. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs. It came to the table hot and tasty.... More

It was raining, and we decided with some friends to take a coffee there. So we wanted to sit down but the owner started to yell at us to go away with our umbrellas. After 10min waiting we sat down without his blessing, and asked him for the drinks menu. He continued to yell at us saying that either we... More

The worst food and service ever in Europe. The food was far from good, not an example of the famous Italian cuisine. The most expensive Fanta of the world (6€), unbelievable! On top of that the waiter who didn't even brought the food, was asking for a tip. Not a very clean place either, the forks had remains of food... More

This is a disaster - please don't try this one. The service is one of the worst we have experienced; unfriendly. The food was lousy. We recommend all to look for other places near by.

Almost everything they serve was deepfrozen. My lasagna was tasteless, like a microwave meal I can buy in the supermarket at home. The coffee was a bit cold as well. 2 beers, 2 small plates of lasagna and 2 coffee: 51 Euros. We wouldn't ever go back here. There are far far better places to eat in Rome.

I will admit that it rained heavily and this was the closest place that we could seek refuge in, but oh boy, what a mistake! This restaurant is a typical tourist trap. Terrible food with even worse service. I mean (and I'm not kidding) this is the only restaurant that I've visited where the waiter asked for the tip!!! He... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
