We were hungry and decided to try this place. The staff were welcoming and we took a seat. My wife had a salmon and pasta dish and I had the spicey pasta, arabbiata with penne. The salamon was E12 and the other E10 we had a glass of house wine for E5 a glass. The place had a nice feel and we enjoyed the food. The next day we paid only E5 for pasta but the quality was not the same. The couple next to us had ordered individual pizzas seemed pleased with their choices, too.
This restaurant is ok for a light lunch such as a slice of pizza or if you order just 1 cheap pasta dish from the menu. They have most of the food on display, so you get to see and judge the quality before you sit down. Do take a good look before you make your choice as some items did not look very good. Also have the menu in your hand when you are looking so that you are aware of the prices before you order (they do not display prices on the wall). We both ordered fresh pasta dishes and they were ok, just ok. However, this place is not ideal for a 3 course meal, as it would end up being too expensive and overpriced for ok quality & taste. A slice of pizza would be the best value...
Made the mistake of going in here without reviewing it on Tripadvisor due to having no wifi or data to have look up first. We were both hot and tired after walking around all morning and the place looked busy enough , so it must be ok type of approach took us in ( should have looked for the tripadvisor sticker on the window , there was none ) . The staff were barely welcoming although the first guy to serve us was okay . Chose a salad and a pasta dish from the menu. The pasta was edible although a bit peppery for my wife's taste. The tuna salad was a big glass bowl of 80% lettuce plus other veg but pretty tasteless and the tuna was strangely warmer than the salad itself. There was no real atmosphere in the place , just people eating and little conversation. My wife then had the unlucky need to use the ladies room . Poor lighting , no toilet seat and no toilet paper either and they were filthy too. She wanted to leave as soon as she returned to the table and there was no reason to stay any longer either, so we paid up and left sharply
I think this place only wants to use turists in the worst possible way! If you think about stereotypes - it is everything in the one place! You can poor service even if the place is empty, you get the highest prices ever! We were charged 25 euros per one person only for a small coffee and small cup of bad ice cream! It was my bad not to ask for menu but I spend a few days in Rome and never felt so cheated. If you are not desperate look for another place. Another way you will loose the whole magic of Rome and only get angry!
