The best salad I ever had

This place was suggested by my brother and it took me a while to find it as I started to look for it from the other end of the street. However I am not sorry I did not give up. I ate the Insalata Imperiale and it was divine. My husband had a risotto which was a bit on the... read more

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant prior to leaving Rome after a 5 day stay. The food is simple but well cooked and well presented. They also have an enormous selection of salads (one of which we had had in their Vatican City branch). The service was friendly and their location was ideal for us. Having visited two... More

I went to L'Insalata Ricca several times during my trip to Rome. The food there is excellent, fresh, and it's easy to find both authentic Italian dishes as well a lighter fare-- they specialize in salads after all. I particularly liked their cacio e pepe, gnocchi with mussels, and the pellegrino salad (Brie, walnuts blueberries, apples, and turkey- an excellent... More

We went to the one close to Piazza Navona. My husband had eaten there for years, being born and bred in Rome. His parents used to make fresh pasta and they supplied this chain of now 12 restaurants, up from 8 by the time he moved away from Rome. It was my first time. We went with a few friends.... More

the restaurant is just outside of the Vatican walls. The food is very good and the price is fair enough if you consider the place. Would definitely go back.

I've been to l'insalata ricca several times during my trips to Rome. Each time I've been happy with the food and service. On my most recent visit, we sat outside. The service was good. The waiter was friendly and helpful. He gave tips on food for the children. The food itself as fresh. I had a salad which I was... More

We went here our first night in Rome. It's right on a main road but we had the set menu which was amazing value for 10 euros. Food was nice but waiter could have smiled a bit more

We have been to Rome many times and have eaten at 3 different branches of L'Insalata Ricca but this one has to be our favourite. The food has been of equally high standard in each and the service has always been good, but this one definitely has that extra something special. We went for dinner one evening and much to... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
