Excellent dinner, kind and attentive staff, reasonable prices. And if that was not enough: a lift home after a hot and tiresome day by super friendly Manolo was included. I am sure we will come back here next time in Roma! Warmly recommended.

Pizza was not honey, poor. Service is only half-tone, non-informative. Prices are really quite high, but in other restaurants, it's more fun to eat the same amount.

Good morning, sorry that the pizza was not appreciated because customers are generally very happy after eating our pizza. The service is very professional and friendly, the prices are average. Please return to change her mind. Regards the staff of the Temple of Minerva

There are lots of mosquitoes. Salmon spagetti got too much cheese. And the worst is, there is a €3.00 for service, WTF?More

Hello, I think you are certainly wrong restaurant because our service we never did pay and above all we never cooked spaghetti with salmon and cheese, so I guess as usual one of the restaurants near our email you accommodated pretending to be our restaurant....More
