I have been told the bar has new management and I must say I was satisfied. They don't offer table service but they provide a tray to bring your drinks to the table. We only had cappuccino and cornetti (croissant) and all was good. They...More

Waited half an hour to get drinks. Had to go in twice to ask for service as they wouldn’t let us pay at the bar. Ended up collecting drinks myself which sat on the bar which they were unhappy about. We were then refused snacks...More

Visited this restaurant twice for lunch.First time we had a good meal but second time we waited an unbelievable two hours. In the end we got fed up with waiting for our food to arrive and walked out.

We are mystified about all the negative comments...certainly not our experience. We found the staff efficient and the food delicious. Expensive? No! Higher than average, yes. You are paying for a nice convenient setting in the Park. We enjoyed it.

This is a very busy cafe in the Borghese Gardens. Food is acceptable, service is very slow. Watch out though - the waiters are routinely giving tourists the wrong change. You give them a 50 note and they give you change for a 20 and...More

Parioli
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour

such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
