I had been past this restaurant on Via Vittoria every day and every year we have been spending a month in Rome, and this last trip finally got there! We stopped at the Frattina Cafe and our waiter Domenico suggested it and boy were we glad. The restaurant is small, cozy and a flight of stairs that go down....but you... More

Excellent food and staff, highly recommended! A reservation is needed, but we were lucky since we didn't have any. We arrived at 7pm and were told we can stay if we can make it till 9pm.

We found this restaurant in Rick Steves' Italy guide. It is pricey, but the euro had just dropped to near-parity with the dollar so we went for it. Yes, we are tourists, and yes, this restaurant is located two feet from the very touristy Piazza Espana and Spanish steps. However, the staff treated us like old favorites who had been... More

We needed to book and return the next night as every table was booked when we arrived first time. For our dinner, we started with a few oysters, which was perfectly marinated in vinegar, and fresh lemon was served on the side, however not cut loose and no specialty knife. The meal developed with the steak, that actually were two... More

I did my research before our trip to Rome so my friends and I had a few options in mind for our evening meals. We had to book to eat here so popped in one evening to reserve a table for the the next night. Booking is something I highly recommend as this was a popular restaurant for tourists and... More

Intimate restaurant near the Spanish Steps. The staff went above and beyond to provide a full three course meal that was excellent.

We ate here following a search on tripadvisor around the Spanish steps. The food overall was good, the mozzarella portion is enormous a huge ball which the biggest of people, would struggle to eat alone. The lamb and barrata we're good but the languistine pasta was average at best with very little langusistine. Service was very pushy trying to get... More

It's surprisingly easy to come across pretty average food in Rome but this place was a real find. We had 3 courses with wine and coffee and were given an after meal digestif when the bill came. All the courses were of good quality and sensible portions. We certainly left satisfied without feeling ripped off in that central location. Will... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
