Bar Moretto, Rome, Italy - Daylight robbery

Jump to last reply

The only reason we fell in this trap was because it was close to the Vatican (St. Peter's Basilica) and we were very hungry and the people who worked there all spoke Italian and it had an accessible entrance without any steps (one of us was on a wheelchair)

First of all the menu did not list any price. Secondly we were served re-heated OLD food. Thirdly the food was SAAAALLLLLLTTTTYYYYYY and was a shame to the Italian cuisine.

Lastly when we notified the waiter and the manager, the manager (the guy was in his thirties) got mad at us for complaining about the bad food and walked away. We asked him if we could speak to his boss and the elderly women was more rude than the earlier guy and her response was, "It is a busy day, so may be the food was not that good". We said we are not ready to pay the bill (77 Euros for two people, how insane is that - 2 sea food spaghetti, a stuffed eggplant and 2 espressos) for bad food and terrible customer service. After some argument and with a moderator(an elderly man who could converse well in English and Italian) , she gave us a refund of 10 Euros.

I reviewed my trip expenses after my return and this was the top most I'd paid for a restaurant during this entire trip and for such horrible food, makes me mad!
