We hadn't come to this restaurant for a few years, and now I remember why. The overall quality of the ingredients is bad. They served us instant tomato soup, uneatable... We waited for 1.30min for the food. When we inquired the waitress about the wait, she said it was because of the soup (what?!). Also, they forgot about the salads... More

Food quality is good, service takes too long and not very friendly. Ambient is very dark and decoration not Italian for sure. Price / Quality is high, and will not go there again.

One year later, we went to try it again. Kept its quality, definitely, although I would rather have less cream in the Zuppa di Pomodoro (made it a tad too sweet). Main courses were perfect and had no room left for dessert. I would still definitely recommend it!

Been there twice, the second time going extra (+100 kms distance) to eat there. I especially recommend the Zuppa di Pomodoro and Scaloppinne roma antica, both to die for. Service was good, price represents good value for money.
