In the breakfast room, all you can see is your reflection in the mirrors placed on one of the walls. So there is no view of the outside, and no possibility to eat on the terrace in fine weather. The buffet offers hot dishes (scrambled eggs, bacon) and cold ones (yoghurts, jam tarts croissants, sliced bread). Coffee is self-service. For lunch and dinner, the meals take on a different aspect: if you like an 'olden days' atmosphere, try the £28 menu, a light price, when you think that the menu includes a starter or a pasta dish, a main course, a dessert and a coffee. Service is made with a trolley, like in the old times. The recipes are often Roman specialities (pasta alla matriciana, with bacon and creamy tomato sauce, pasta alla carbonara, with bacon also but the creamy sauce is flavoured with a raw egg yolk, and veal fillet served with ham and sage). If you are not hungry enough for all this, opt for the £22 option (main course, dessert and coffee). Come early if you wish to sit at one of the tables by the patio doors; or else towards the end of the service (around 2:00 pm and 9:30 pm).
