Very tasty deserts (cheesecake and tiramisu ) in cute jars! And you make photo near Colosseum. Nice waiters and tasty cappuccino.

Perfect place for a lunch break in-between visiting The Colosseum and The Roman Forum. The place is pretty big, but I recommend you taking a table outside, given the full facing view of the Colosseum!

I ordered the meat dish , while the misses got the veal, waited over 40mins , wasn't very nice . Mine was overlooked while hers was fatty and very greasy . The view is nice but do not go here

We had dinner here after visiting the Colosseum and enjoyed great service, a great meal and lovely decor. Our waiter was an absolute gentleman and our food tasted great. In all honesty, it was perhaps a little overpriced, but still a great experience with a great view of the Colosseum across the road.

Only the view is worth visiting this restaurant. The waiter forgets to give you a fork but he will remember to add 6 euros for accepting your order. Food is so-so.

We only had drinks at this restaurant, they had a nice selection of salty nuts to pair with our drinks. Great view of the Colosseum.

Pizza was like cheese on toast and burnt to a crisp, definitely overpriced for the food however the view from the terrace is lovely.

Very poor service had to go downstairs to ask if we could order a drink.. finally ordered our starters when one came out wasn't what we expected at all so they changed it for something else... having waited over twenty minutes for the starter to be cleared and to be asked if we would like more drinks got fed up...
