The food is below average. Not sure how the rating thing works. Maybe we got unlucky with the dishes. The service is also average. I'll definitely advise against this place.

Walked in without reservation after seeing TripAdvisor, seated straight away, best meal we had in Rome. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was very tasty, I had lamb chops and choc fondant. Food was no more expensive than most restaurants but quality was much better. Surroundings were relaxed, appeared to be renovated wine cellar. Definitely worth a visit.

Best Caio y Pepe I've ever had. Great wines and fantastic service. Greeted promptly with a strong handshake and smiles. Very clean and quiet for this cave. I've been to Roma five times and always make sure to stop her for a great dinner.

We were lucky to walk in off the street as il Gabriello gets booked up weeks in advance. Food is just divine with an affordable wine list. We were the only tourists there with an upwardly mobile clientele from the neighbourhood in place. Don't pass it by just because it's underground with no outside tables . Highly recommended.

Went to this spot last night with my family for dinner. Love the modern pop art and cozy basement vibe of this place (but still a cool escape from summer heat). We started with some fantastic bruschetta al pomodoro that was a great bargain and so good. Also Had the bresaola to begin which was the perfect balance of salty... More

We ate here based on Trip Advisor ratings and it did not disappoint. Reviews said to get a reservation and our hotel concierge was able to secure a reservation during the afternoon of the evening we wanted to go. We actually only ordered a pasta dish while there as we had eaten a late lunch. However, it was very good... More

Charming restaurant, steps below street level near the upscale shopping district in Rome. We ate there quite late one evening, yet the place was busy. The service was terrific and staff was friendly. The food here is great....well-prepared but reasonably priced. They serve a variety of wines by the glass. I especially enjoyed the Panna Cotta Caramel for desert. Loved... More

This was probably our best meal in Rome. It's located close to the Spanish Steps but it's definitely not a touristy trap type place. My husband and I had ordered the Veal and it was delicious. Wine was also good. The crepes we shared for dessert were heavenly. It's below ground and was very warm (but so was EVERYWHERE we... More

The lovely restaurant, located in a basement, is a gem. We dined there the last night of our vacation... Frankly, I wished we had eaten there before. My family of 4 ordered different items from the menu and all of us loved what we had. We will definitely visit it again the next time we travel to Rome.

Found this restaurant conveniently located close to our holiday rental apartment near the Spanish Steps. It was a great find! Very friendly staff, excellent menu and quality of the dishes. The advice on wine was definitely worth having, the sommelier's suggestions were perfect for our taste. We'll come back next time we visit Rome.

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.
