Stay away - the panorama view was the only thing they didn't succeed in spoiling. The waiter was inpolite the food was poor and they forgot half of the order when serving.

This is honestly my first negative review on Trip Advisor. This restaurant has a marvelous view, but the surliest service I have ever encountered in Italy and I've lived here more than 20 years. We experienced much of what other reviewers experienced such as no change brought back, being shouted at (yes! Shouted at). The food is pedestrian. It's a... More

Our experience in this restaurant was very strange because the food was quiet good but the servis was weird. The waiter didnt speak english so our communication with him was difficult. The menu was also in italian language and we asked his guidance. We ordered a mix grill which according to what he showed us from the menu was 9... More

Yes, there is the best view in town. It is actually a unique spot. Yes, we had had delicious al dente nicely cooked pasta. But, I trully wonder the reason these owners seem to do nothing for decoration, etc. If I had that restaurant, people all around Rome should come just for the place. Other critics say bad about the... More

This restaurant has a beautiful view but angry and rude waiters. Service was terrible and the conclusion to our lunch is : Never again!

Food was ok. View was lovely. The service was the worst possible. It's as if they couldn't care less about business. They obviously don't have return customers and it makes you wonder why they are in Tripadvisor in the first place. My only regret is not having checked the comments on Tripadvisor before going in.

Women should not go here. Punto, basta. Scenetta indimenticabile dopo un servizio finora scortese ma niente di grave. Ma poi all'uscita, per una piccola domanda sul conto, rabbia imprevista ma totale da parte del cameriere. Avrà dei problemi ma potrà anche veramente combinare dei guai. The service here is exactly as described in the other reviews. It's so bad it... More

We had a nice lunch at that restaurant. Lacking enough Euro coins for the tip we intended to give the server, upon paying the check we gave him Euro bills and waited for the change - 1.5 Euro. He did not bring us any change, he simply did not return to our table and pretended as if nothing happened. So... More

We were hungry and it was 5:00 - early by Italian standards. We wanted a view of the lake and we found it here! Sweeping view! No customers were in the restaurant - but we thought that that could be because of the time. Our dishes were bland and served by the most hilariously rude server we've probably ever had.... More
