As the name would suggest they specialize in salads. There were about twenty different salads on the menu and we were able to try several different ones. While over all the salads were not bad, all of the different ones we tried tasted the same since they were all soaked in the same dressing.
In addition to salads there is a good selection of the typical pizza and pasta you'll find in every restaurant in Rome. The pizza and vongole (clams) that we ordered we actually quite good.
Overall I would give the food an average rating. However, I would rate the service as very poor.
The first time we visited the restaurant there were three girls who were waiting quite a while for their order to be taken. They eventually got tired of waiting and decided to leave. After they left, the waiter and waitress started talking very badly about them right in the open. They basically said how terrible it was for them to walk out like that and that was typical of Americans. I actually found this amusing because the girls weren't even American, they were Australian.
Despite this experience we actually went back again since some people in our group insisted on going there. This time the waiter messed up our order and brought us the wrong wine. This would not have been so bad, except that he refused to take it back and bring us the correct wine that we ordered.
I would not recommend going here to eat. There are a number of other restaurants in the area with far better food and service.

The mixed bruschetta was amazing (you never get the same thing twice) as was the spaghetti con frutti di mare (seafood spaghetti). If you want to order a meat course, ask the waiter what everything is first. Although not disappointing, my veal with parmesan and salad was not the beautiful steak I had imagined but thin slices of cured veal. If you have room, tuck into any of the beautiful cakes (ricotta, lemon, chocolate). Or, much better, take a gentle stroll after dinner to a) walk of all you've eaten and b) grab an ice-cream made as only the Italians can.
Our whole meal cost less the 40 Euros, leaving more than enough for a healthy tip - ensuring even better service when we returned later in the week (at a much more civilised time of 8:45).
