The Tazio brasserie, which is open for the three meals, is on the ground floor, by the Living Bar, whose terrace is under the archways with a view over the Piazza della Repubblica. Inside, small alcoves make it look like a 1950's film set. The floor is of two-tone marble, with wooden veneer on the walls that has been coordinated with the furniture. There are white tablecloths and the service is attentive. The setting is pleasant, and you will also enjoy the dishes on offer, starting with breakfast. There is a buffet offering, among other things, smoked salmon, raw ham, jam tart, orange pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon, and sliced fresh fruit. Orange juice and coffee are served at the table. At lunch and dinner, the service is "à la carte". The cuisine is tasty, with regional specialities such as Venetian pasta (with kidney beans), or spaghetti with pistou from Genova. There are other choices, if you would prefer something more Roman: lamb chops with herbs (with cinnamon sauce to complete the change of scenery), or a fillet of cod with broccoli and black olives. However, be careful with the prices. a starter or main dish cost will each set you back around £27.50.
