Il Grillo Brillo Tips (2)

Il Grillo Brillo: Decent enough 'pad' !

Centrally located and mixed reviews from VTers. It is true that you will not be fussed and feigned over here although staff did enough (if no more). Seating outside and in, fair wine list

Update April 2009 - new sito web address corrected below, contact e-mail added

Favorite Dish Sausage and broccoli penne

Il grillo Brillo: Yakkes , the sand was for free!

We arrived late in Rome and after leaving
our luggage in the BB we went looking for
a restaurant. I must be honest , I didn't like Rome
much when first meeting.
And this restaurant didn't help for sure...

We decided to sit outside , that is fine
since the street hasn't got loads of traffic
and if was a nice evening. The waitress
smacked some menu's on the table and
she spoke a few words English...
It was the kind of waitress that it doesn't mind
if your daughter is lesbian , chooses one like
her as a partner. You'll get a son in law anyway.

The English went like this ' DRINKS?'.
And that went on the rest of dinner...
The appetizer was , let's say ok.
Grilled vegetables - you can make them with
a lot more care and much tastier... whatever.
The other side of the table choose seafood.

First headdish : Pasto vongolé. Well it was pasta
and I sure spotted some mussels...
The sand was for free , and the pasta was way
too fat. bah... My messmate wasn't
enthousiast either about his choise...

When the short haired G.I.jana yelled 'DESSERT'
we thanked her friendly ...
It could have been nicer , my first contact with Rome.

Their website looks nice....
