Cave Canem, Piazza S. Calisto, 11, Roma 00153: "Disgraceful Service - AVOID!!!" Cave Canem Ristorante Pizzeria Tip by madrid242

Cave Canem Ristorante Pizzeria, Rome: 3 reviews and 6 photos

Cave Canem serve up a good range of local dishes, but the service, as usual, is an absolute disgrace. The Italian woman whose family own the place is generally helpful, but she has taken to hiring cheap, unskilled labour in recent years, ergo a handful of South American kitchen hands and waiters and a few Bangladeshi guys too. The Peruvian (?) girl who works there as a 'waitress' is the restaurant nightmare from hell none of us want to have to pay for. She is slovenly, dirty, lazy, unresponsive, and for the most part stands at the entrance of the restaurant ***ing and laughing about all the customers sat just yards away, most of whom will tip her. I've lived in Rome for many years and there are so many great restaurants offering good food and fabulous service in Trastevere. The most polite waiters and waitresses in Rome are generally young workers from East Europe or students working part-time shifts. Italian restaurant staff will talk badly about customers, but not overtly; the staff of Cave Canem on the other hand are the absolute worst. Pitiful, embarrassing, rude and disrespectful. Don't go there, you have been warned!

Favorite Dish: It's better next door :-)
