    The food is extremely bland. The presentation is awful, I’ve never seen a lazier prepared pizza. The service was awful, we were brought the wrong bill and had to ask for the change. In general, it was really unfriendly and slow there. The prices are high and the portions are small, but that’s to be expected right near the coliseum. We didn’t read the reviews because we were tired and hungry, and were pissed we decided to just sit down. Definitely avoid this tourist trap at all costs.

    The Colosseum in the background was surreal - felt like you could reach out and touch it! We ate outside and had prompt service and attentive waiters. The menu plainly says which dishes have homemade pasta. Husband ordered the homemade cannelloni with spinach and ricotta and it was fabulous! I had non-homemade lasagna which was good but would definitely order something noted as being homemade. This was our first meal in Rome and between the good food and great view it was a terrific way to start. Would have given 5 stars if all pasta was homemade.

    Great location with direct view on the Colosseum. Broad selection of food and drinks at reasonable prices taking into account the location. The staff is friendly and attentive. It is rather noisy on the outside since many tourist busses and vans pass by on the street in front.

    Food is not good. Ordered tortellini -was soft and mediocre sauce. My brother ordered another cream sauce pasta and it was too buttery and soft. Pizza is fine, service and location are good. Prices not great. Air conditioning was the best part

    Bad coffee and expensive. I didn’t check the review before I come and I regretted. I would give zero star if there is a choice.

    Free wi-fi. Very expensive drinks. Pop is 5 euro. Seafood pasta as tasty but not home made pasta.

    Came here for lunch because it was the first place we saw and had not eaten breakfast before our tour. The pizza is just awful. It's not freshly cooked, just reheated. It was room temperature when we got it. Twice the cost of pizza in Naples and the taste cannot even be compared. Avoid.

    We went here just to relax and refresh after a walk in the heat. When we came in we where really confused if we could sit down or not, the staff made us feel unwelcome. We tried to get someone to help us so we could order, wich we managed in the end. I got so bad tiramisu, I didn't know they could fail making a tiramisu here in Rome but it's possible. Would not recommend coming here.

    Good food, not great. Nice view of the Colosseum, although obstructed by some trees. Good service.

    You’re not coming here for the food or drink, you’re coming here for the view. Try to get here for golden hour and if there isn’t space outside ask if they can move you when there is

    Excellent position towards the Colosseum. The View is amazing. It's expensive because you pay the location.

    Terrible. Extremely rude staff. They ignored me 3x when asking for a table. There are much better places a couple of feet away from here.

    If you go it's for the view not the food.

    Bruschetta is really bad, lasagna was ok, prices are high and the service is the worst! If you don't have to, don't bother stopping...

    Serveur sympa et excellente petite terrasse avec vue sur le Colisée. La nourriture n'est pas excellente en revanche. Idéal pour une petite pause et photo souvenir.

    Le serveur qui s'est occupé de nous était adorable, nous a réservé une table pendant quelques minutes le temps de récupérer les membres de mon groupe, et s'est démené pour nous servir.
