At the foot of the Spanish Steps in Rome, lie many restaurants, some good, some bad, some average. We were recommended “try the antipasti buffet at Alla Rampa.”

We arrived on the stroke of 12h00. Alla Rampa is one of those restaurants where the waiters have been there for years, they’ve seen it all and are highly professional. We saw the buffet and melted – no one can do an antipasti buffet better than the Italians! It was heavenly nd a huge variety, and by charging by the plate, you can go back time and again.


However, this is where it stopped…

Our pasta arrived cold and unappetising

We were charged a princely 2.50€ per head for bread

The bill’s addition was creative to say the least.

We left dreaming of that buffet, but not as happy as we could have been. Pity.
