Charming but

Great outdoor space with good food for the most part. Pasta is all good. Nice salads but veggies over cooked. The staff was not overly friendly but ok. However, at the end, the host stood by the table after saying service wax not included in the bill. Bad form in any country.

Osteria da Mario is a pleasant surprise after passing so many too large, too touristy restaurants in the main plazas. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff is friendly. We recommend the carbonara and the meatballs.

We found this restaurant in a small piazza area near our hotel. The food was very good and reasonably priced. This is a family restaurant with a good mix of locals and tourists. We enjoyed the house wine and Italian dishes, and we recommend eating outdoors.

The Restaurant is located in a nice little "backyard" piazza which makes it at least a little off the tourist streams. The staff was friendly but extremely hectic. Food came just 5 minutes after the order but: 1 Starter came together with main course, the other starter in fact never arrived. Side dish came 10 minutes after main course. All... More

Really such a nice little place with excellent pizza, in the sun, great little starters and not pretentious. Not touristy at all.

We went here because it was listed in a popular guide book, but even they can make a mistake. This place was horrible. We were seated in the basement, next to the bathroom, which reeked. People kept coming down to use it, and the door kept opening and closing as the smell wafted in. I asked for sparkling water and... More

Terrible service! Booked but still had to wait for ages to get a table, rude waiter, waited at least 20 mins for food, then pretty much the same for the bill. Veggie's hell on top of that, they were supposed to have fish and seafood - only have it 3/4 days /week- was told that they couldn't serve it and... More

You could tell it was a popular place as the restaurant was completely full the whole time we ate lunch. I got the cacio e pepe and my husband got gnocchi. Both were excellent!

This place has very friendly staff and the food is very tasty and good value, although it is rather rustic and definitely not fine dining. We found the house wine acceptable and very reasonably priced. We were also given freebies after a couple of nights eating there.

Our B&B owner recommended this local restaurant just down the road from our accommodation. I liked that it was patronized mostly be locals. We did make a booking, but dont think this is always necessary. We received excellent service with astute recommendations on meal and wine choice, and the prices were very reasonable. The bruschetta with soft white cheese and... More

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.
