Busy staff and overcharged us for a meal. Experience was saved by an amazing server but overall long wait for an unfriendly service and average food (unless this is the bar for Rome).

My boyfriend and I had dinner in the library, and our only complaint was that the menu has so many delicious-sounding options, we ordered WAY too much food--which, when in Rome, is not the worst problem to have. Our waitress was professional and personal. We...More
