Dinner for two

The food is simple yet tasty. The service is friendly and well executed. We went twice in a period of 4 days, say no more.

My partner and I travelled to Rome for a long weekend in January and I had seen this place online and insisted on going. A very small, cosy, intimate restaurant and only about 7 tables. The decor is phenomenal and really gives off a highly romantic atmosphere. The staff were so attentive, handing us a complimentary glass of prosecco on... More

Wanted to surprise my wife with romantic dinner in Rome. Chose this restaurant because of online reviews. Couldn't have asked for more. Great atmosphere. Tables for only 6 couples. Menu unique. Food delicious and obviously very fresh. I had salmon, which is the best fish I've ever had. My wife raved about her pork tenderloin, especially the sauce. Suggested wine... More

The Library is unquestionably one of the most quaint and romantic places my husband and I have ever dined. I had really high hopes, as this was our last dinner on our honeymoon. We arrived a bit early for our reservation. The waiter looked at us like we had three heads. No biggie. He got over it and was able... More

My fiancé and I came here a day after he proposed. Lovely food and staff. Very welcoming. It was the most intimate setting and perfect end to such an amazing weekend away. With only 6 tables in the whole restaurant it created a romantic atmosphere. The hand written menus with hand held torches were a nice touch. We thought it... More

First of all they had a problem with the delivery, so they could only show us one appetizer. Then they had a problem with the credit card machine so we had to pay cash. I asked for two wines they did not have them. There was two employs that night, one was serving, the other, one I don’t know… He... More

What a beautiful little restaurant, such a change from the busy, often loud and bright restaurants of Rome. So so cozy, perfect music, perfect ambience to have a couples night out. Besides the decor, the service was amazing, the fellow who served us was so great and attentive. The food was to die for, loved everything! Great experience, will recommend... 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.
