This restaurant is famous for its preparation of artichokes, particularly 'al mattone' and 'alla giudia'. The dishes are typically Roman, so are wonderfully heavy and fattening! However, there are also other dishes such as Sicilian specialities. In summer there is the traditional parmigiana, or pasta with aubergines, almonds and ricotta cheese. The vegetables follow the seasons with the exception of artichokes, which are available all year round. The desserts and ice creams are homemade. The subdued lighting and comfortable seating make for an elegant interior.
The service, hostess and some of the food was the worst experience I have had in Italy. I travel to Italy, primarily the Piedmont region, at least twice a year and this was by far the worst experience I have ever had in the last 10 years.
Most of the food was cold or luke warm, the artichoke was good however. But the food came out in the most disorganized manner. One of our party members got his duck entree immediately, and another had to wait over one hour for his pork entree after the entire party had been served and was done.
Our elderly hostess was quite rude.
Not worth the hype--very overrated.
