We were on our way to the Vatican and needed a quick lunch. We were greeted with a rude nod and ushered to the next room and seated next to the toilettes.
The waiter who seemed ok, quickly seemed alarmed when one of the kids decided not to order anything
The owner instantly came and informed us that they were a ‘restaurant ‘and that EVERYONE HAD TO ORDER A DISH!!! It almost seemed like she was scolding us.
She took our order and made sure everyone ordered.She instantly returned with cold, tasteless food!!
OBVIOUSLY SHE CAME BACK WITH PRE MADE FOOD AND DID NOT EVEN BOTHER TO HEAT IT! I guess SHE WAS determined to squeeze money out of tourists anyway SHE COULD.
We were literally appalled, took a few bites, since we were hungry and quickly left.
I would not advise anyone to go to this restaurant!!!

Went there for lunch. Spaghetti carbonara were very salty and undercooked, sauce wasn’t smooth and tasty. I couldn’t finish my dish. My husband didn’t enjoy his meal either. Waitress man wasn’t friendly at all. With other customers he was smiling and seemed very helpful and friendly. I had a feeling that he didn’t like us. Maybe that was a reason we’ve got a bad food. We didn’t leave tips because our lunch was very bad.

Had a lunch break there. The food was ok. The service was very good even though the place was totally full. The vegetable lasagna was nice.
The tiramisu was very good.

The restaurant looks typically italian. They offer just limited number of portions of food - freshly made. After the fresh food is sold, you can order only from main course. We had carbonara spagetti, lasagna and eggplant, everything was really tasty. Average price of food, the service is terrible like in other restaurants in Rome. ;)

Seemed rather average. The bruschetta starter was pretty burned, would not serve that to anyone. The main course pasta and lasagna were ok, nothing noteworthy. Prices seemed a bit higher than what the quality of the food would allow.
